Lucie wins marathon match at Madrid Masters!
The match lasted two hours 40 minutes, started very late on Wednesday (coz Ferrer/Baghdatis)
and finished at 1:49 am on Thursday!
about late match, please read this interesting blog post from a tennis pro
But by 10:15 pm, the fans have had enough! Everybody leaves and no one stays for the second singles match. There’s zero atmosphere for the players and grossly unfair they should have to come out and play at that hour. Fish finished his win just after midnight and he’s gotta come back and play Wednesday. That’s ridiculous! Get rid of those second matches. It’s such a bad advertisement for the event and the sport when you see the stadium empty, especially off the back of a good match with a good atmosphere!! Surely that’s a no-brainer? The scary thing is all this info is relayed to the tournament directors from the ATP. Players don’t like it, it looks rubbish on TV etc. Yet some events still persist….
Lucie all in white like a bride
Joy and relief for Lucie!
Lucie Safarova saved match point before beating Alexandra Dulgheru of Romania, 6-7 (4), 6-1, 7-6 (6).
