Order of play question for wimbledon.

I'm new to watching tennis (thats right I am only watching as we have a chance of winning), but was hoping that someone could tell me when Murray is likely to play if he does well next week.
I know he is on last on Monday but what about after that? Or do they not decide until after he has won. I'm trying to organise my week and was hoping to be able to watch all the games.
Thanks to all who help

Really have no idea, I think its different everytime, altho pretty sure all his games so far have been later in the day, but as more drop out then they tend to get earlier etc, will just need to wait and see what Monday brings.

Well I think the order of play is determined at the end of each day, think it depends on how long the game has lasted etc, maybe not tho I dunno.

and what comments were those? Did you read it in the daily mail lol?

paraguay shirt was a fabrication by the daily mail.

National identity

Murray identifies himself as "Scottish, but also British".[93][94] Prior to Wimbledon 2006, Murray caused some public debate[95] when he was quoted as saying he would "support anyone but England" at the 2006 World Cup. He received large amounts of hate mail on his website as a result.[96] It was also reported (incorrectly, it turned out) that Murray had worn a Paraguay shirt on the day of England's World Cup match with the South American team.[97]
Murray explained that his comments were said in jest during a light-hearted interview with sports columnist Des Kelly,[98] who asked him if he would be supporting Scotland in the World Cup, in the knowledge that Scotland had failed to qualify for the tournament.[99] Kelly stated another tabloid had later "lifted a couple of them [comments] into a 'story' that took on a life of its own and from there the truth was lost" and that he despaired over the "nonsensical criticism".[100]
Murray protested that he is "not anti-English and never was"[93] and he expressed disappointment over England's subsequent elimination by Portugal.[101] In an interview with Nicky Campbell on BBC Radio 5 Live, Tim Henman confirmed that the remarks had been made in jest and were only in response to Murray being teased by Kelly[98] and Henman.[102] He also stated that the rumour that Murray had worn a Paraguay shirt was untrue.[102]
In an interview with Gabby Logan for the BBC's Inside Sport programme, Andy said that he was both Scottish and British and was comfortable and happy with his British identity.[103] He said he saw no conflict between the two and was equally proud of them. He has also pointed out that he is quarter English with some of his family originating from Newcastle, his coach is Scottish and that his girlfriend, Kim Sears, is English.[104]

Good to see forward thinking and nonjudgmental attitudes from some people here. The media that caused the narow minded vilification from many of its readers really highlights what the gutter press is all about. The higher quality papers tend to write articles in a manner that stimulates the broad-minded to make logical decisions whereas some just spoon feed drivel.

Murray has shown a lot more maturity and more diplomacy in his comments. I remember when he first burst onto the professional scene as a teenager, his interview technique left a lot to be desired - for example, a criticism of his mother making him tidy the room in response to tennis-related questions.

Murray now possess all the weapons to have a crack at the All England title at Wimbledon. His physical fitness and strength is a far cry from his scraggy frame of a few years ago where he was even taken to the point of being physically sick during a 5-set match against Pavel. His backhand is probably inferior to Federer's backhand due to the latter having a greater reach by playing the backhand single-handedly. He also does not volley as well as Federer and on a high speed surface like grass, volley shots are more frequent than on slower surfaces. The US Open is arguably a stronger tournament for Murray as the slightly slower surface suits his liking to dictating a baseline rally before finding the openings for a passing shot.

The website [url]www.wimbledon.org[/url] contains the full order of play and the playing times.

The problem is that those who were spoon fed this drivel, lack the ability to take on board the truth of the matter, and hold onto pathetic grudges.
