Andy Murray's camp is reportedly fuming at what they consider unfair scheduling for their man, with the third seed playing all of his matches so far at the Australian Open in the heat of summer days.
Rivals Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic have mainly been given night-owl slots, with Federer playing his fourth straight under the lights as a huge draw card.
Open officials apparently offered a variety of excuses to Murray and coach Ivan Lendl - but the bottom line has been that the Scot is far from top box office when compared to the other two elites.
Tournament bosses say that scheduling is not entirely in their hands, with Australia's Seven Network also getting a vote.
Murray said that conditions change drastically between night and day. "The balls tend to be less lively and the bounce off the court is much slower so it's very different, almost like playing in two separate tournaments."
Tournament director Craig Tiley said that if any top player had a right to complains it would be women's No. 1 Victoria Azarenka, who has made most of her starts at the crack-of-dawn 11 a.m. slot.
