TOMAS BERDYCH

 

Q.  Obviously it’s hard to come back overnight.  Can you just talk about what it’s like coming back to a match that’s resumed from the day before?

TOMAS BERDYCH:  Yeah, well it’s not something that’s very actually like every day happening, you know.  It was a different situation, that’s of course.

But I think I would say only one of my small chances, you know, after yesterday’s third set that he was playing really well and he was really playing solid and hard.

You know, if the match is suspended, next day is next day and could happen whatever.  But, you know, didn’t happen, so that’s how it is.

Q.  Just in terms of scheduling, do you think it’s fair, because sometimes we can see a lot of these matches are not finishing or you can see the schedule and you can say, Well it’s probably not going to go on that court?  Should they start earlier?  Start playing on more courts?  What do you think?

TOMAS BERDYCH:  Well, yeah, that’s really pretty big question, I would say, because, you know, I was on schedule that before was two girls’ matches, which not either one went into three sets; was quite quick games.

Roger was playing four sets, yeah, but it was very quick four sets.  Then we were not able to finish it after three sets, which is ‑‑ it’s how it is, you know.

Even here you can play quite late.  We were finishing 9:30, and this is not usual that you can play that late.

Actually it’s definitely not about the scheduling, but it’s definitely about to do something with this place.  You know, as you see everyplace you have at least lights.

Okay, we don’t to have play like a night session, but at least to have decent lights that you can finish the match.  That would be all right.

Q.  What about starting earlier in the morning?

TOMAS BERDYCH:  No, I don’t think so.  I mean, it’s not going to change anything.  You know, one hour, okay.  But you cannot start at 9:00.  That’s not possible.

And even that, you know, starting I think at 11:00 is like okay, so‑so.  If you start at 11:00, warmup at 9:00, everything is moved quite early for the morning.

So I don’t think it’s necessary to start earlier, but just to do something to improve for us.
