Manic Monday. Today is TUESDAY followed by “Weird Wednesday”. Why?

 

Ok, so Roger Federer and Rafa NADAL have been switching back and forth from who’s number One/Two on the ATP men’s world tennis tour rankings all year. Currently Rafa is number one again.

 

So here we are with the two best players in the world playing matches on Wednesday. Ok. But why is Novak • Aka Mr. Bounce, bounce, bounce • on Center Court? He is up first against Kei Nishikori.

 

Yep. Roger is relegated to a court that is a beauty. It’s truly one of my favorite courts in the world. But it’s not ROGER’S! Why? It’s not “his backyard”. Seriously can’t imagine what the refs office was thinking? Is it for the Debentures members? They are laying out the money for the roof? Can’t imagine. Roger doesn’t get to climb down the stairs onto his court. Still shaking my head.

 

I can tell you right now. “This is not my cup of tea!”. Seriously. If your two top guys are playing they both belong on CENTER Court.

 

And the Novak | Nishikori match belongs on Court One with the Milos | Isner match.

 

It’s really that simple.
