The French Open organisers' decision to continue the Gael Monfils and Fabio Fognini match as long as they did was absolutely ridiculous.
When you are watching a match on television you can't fully appreciate the natural light because the engineers do such an extraordinary job with what are called "the racks" so that you the viewers can see the action.
However, I can assure you that near the end of the day's play it was virtual pitch darkness and I can completely understand why Fognini was so annoyed that he wasn't allowed to go off the court.
It was clear that the organisers were pandering to the crowd, who after being revved up by Monfils would probably have started a riot if the match had ended before their man was ready.
The French federation has been stung by criticism from some of their top players like Richard Gasquet and Jo Wilfried-Tsonga for not favouring them in the scheduling and maybe this was on their minds as they tried to keep Monfils happy.
However, they could now pay the price for this stunt, and both they and Monfils were very lucky that he didn't end up losing the match in the final game before play was stopped.
It was a bit of an in-and-out day at Roland Garros on Wednesday with all the rain, but one player who did manage to impress me was Robin Soderling.
Last year's finalist has been very inconsistent this year but he looked back to his best against Taylor Dent - dropping just two games - and he seemed more focused than I have ever seen him.
That could have been a tricky match on paper as Dent has done superbly to come back from some serious injuries and fight his way back into the top 100.
However, the American wasn't at his best against Soderling, and the Swede will be uplifted by the fact that he is playing so well at the venue where he enjoyed his best performance last season.
I don't think things could have worked out much better for Andy Murray on Wednesday than they did against Juan Ignacio Chela.
He has put himself in a great position to now win the match in an hour and a half or less, while he has also now had an extra day to rest the legs after that long first-round match with Richard Gasquet.
He didn't want to have a long day on court on Wednesday but likewise, if he did not get on court at all because of the rain, then he could have expected to play two full matches back-to-back on Thursday and Friday.
Thursday's order of play does not look quite as appealing as Wednesday's but there are still some matches I'm looking forward to watching.
Fernando Verdasco said some silly things to the French crowd during his Nice Open final with Gasquet so the Parisians are sure to give him a warm welcome when he faces Florent Serra on Philippe Chatrier.
Novak Djokovic also could be given a decent test against Kei Nishikori, who is a very promising young Japanese player, but I think the match of the day could be the first one out on Court One when Alisa Kleybanova takes on Ana Ivanovic.
Kleybanova is a big-serving Russian who can causes anyone problems, while Ivanovic can be superb or awful depending on her mood and form. It should be fascinating to watch.
