Judging by the radar I think it will be very late by the time it gets underway, they might have to put the second match on court 1 again.

I'm not sure the court order allows bobby to get that close to Schmeids :p
ha. I walked past her the other day when I was walking to my seat and she was warming up and I swear her coach gave me the dagger eyes.

Looked like a man who i would not want to cross with. Kenin beat Cornet in the other semi just then. Going to be very tough as Sofia has looked very good this week and defeated Garcia in the first round.

They announced a short time ago that the women’s semi has been moved to court 1 and the men’s will be on KRA when play gets underway but I can’t see that that will be anytime soon, still raining heavily.

Poor Sydney. They had a mare of a tournament.

At least they are now building a roof over the Ken Rosewell Arena.

The radar looks terrible.

I swear Sydney get this wrong every year and I sound like a broken record...but why couldn't play start at 10am today...the matches could have been done before the rain came.

Many years ago I went to the Aus Open and was out on like court 20 or something watching Cibulkova play. There are no players boxes or designated seats out there so her entourage just filed in and sat next to me. I lasted about 3 games, they were all completely mental.

Poor Alex or Giles, terribly unfair to have to play two finals in one day. Sydney should have been the first to get a roof given their climate.

Go Alex!

I'd prefer alex to lose this semi, this will cost him in Melbourne next week unfortunately.

Pretty sure it used to have points and prize money when Sampras, Agassi & co played every year.

Once it stripped the points and turned into exho only that was the end of its relevance.

Sydney international used to be one of the main ATP/Wta tournaments before Brisbane Open took over

I think the top players are just soft and don't want to play the week before a slam these days.

With 16 seeds players would have to hit the open prepared. With 32 seeds you can afford to go into the open at 80% and build up in your first few games knowing you are reasonably safe from playing a good player early.
