Like it or not Fed, nadal and djoker are all still bigger draws than Andy, that's fact whether we like it or not. Organisers do what's best for ticket sales. I am sure Andy doesn't care one bit what court he is on, he will have his mind set on the match and the court won't cross his mind.  Think how world number 4 Ferrer feels out on court 4....

     I don't think Novak is that popular though.   *shrug*

Novak is more popular than Andy still. Popularity is largely based on success. Novak is more successful than Andy and has more career titles. Now I am not bashing Andy at all but Nole imo also has more charisma, although ott at times, than Andy does, and that will gain him fans.

Quite right Prod.    The masses are not interested in quality.    They prefer superficiality.     That is why we have so many worthless "celebs" with no talent.

I like Novak and can see why he has a lot of fans, but I reckon he has a lot more haters than Fed does

I disagree.  People are very shallow these days and I don't think popularity is based largely on success,  look at the WTA.  Serena isn't that popular yet she is very successful. It's  more to do with looks and personality.    Novak tries too hard these days imo.   I don't find him that funny.      His fans at times are insufferable with the whole Nolefam.   It's cringey.

  I agree.      Some people are blinded by the fact that fed  has been irrelevant for about almost a year.  Fed fans arguments will always be   17 SLAMS  !!!11111 !!!!  !!!       Rolling Eyes

I think Fed/Haas and Rafa/Dimitrov should be on the main court as they look like good matches, but I'd have put Novak/Goffin on the second court and Andy/Benneteau on the main one. I know Novak is the number 1 and deserves preferential treatment but it's so rare nowadays to ever see him put on the second court.

You clearly stated that Serena Williams (America's highest paid female athlete, part of the infamous Williams sisters, Olympic champion and 16 time Slam winner) is not popular. ...
