Re: Venus/Serena Vs Makiri/Petrova

I guess doubling up on doubles tomorrow would be too much risk for Serena to want to take.

Of course. If Rena wins Petra, she'll withdraw with an injury.

I don't think Kiri can play today in doubles before the Singles match is finished...

They've got to do something.

They're still in the 2nd round

Re: Venus/Serena Vs Makiri/Petrova

Kirilenko needs to finish her singles and then doubles can be played. So play needs to get started soon for them to finish and then the one set of doubles can finish under the roof in case of more rain.

Courts being prepared now. Kirilenko needs to lose quick and then doubles can finish later on Centre.

Re: Venus/Serena Vs Makiri/Petrova

It says canceled, no retirement. Most likely doubling up tomorrow. Early to finish this and then later R3.

Re: Venus/Serena Vs Makiri/Petrova

^Meelis to the rescue.

The women's doubles draw is actually fine BESIDES this one match. 5 teams are in QFs already. 2 R3's are tomorrow plus the R3 that contains the winner of this match. The issue is this one match is holding up play. It just severely hurts the chances of this one team that gets the win. So yeah, Kirilenko/Petrova and Venus/Serena are very behind the others. But hopefully they level it up by the end of tomorrow and then each team has to play every day until the end.

Re: Venus/Serena Vs Makiri/Petrova

There was that one year that singles matches were still in the 3r/4r on Tuesday right? 07 was it?

Re: Venus/Serena Vs Makiri/Petrova

I know Serena wants to be nice to Venus but she should withdraw. She really shouldn't be playing 1 1/2 matches the day before her semifinal, at least I wouldn't want to.

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck

She isn't gonna sit around London all day you know.
If you don't know... Winning the Doubles is one of Serena's goal this year.
