Why Haven't We Seen Justine in a Night Match?

As the #1 player, I think it's very disrespectful of the US Open, they have yet to feature her. I believe she only played on ashe on her opening round and since they've put her on one of the other showcourts. What the heck is going on? I don't think Mauresmo had a night match yet either.

Justine may have opted out of playing a night match. She's been struggling with the flu and playing early and ending early will only help her get better.

I don't think that's the case, now they have her on Armstrong, the 3rd show court, they could have giving her a day match on Ashe or GrandStand. Remember, Mauresmo is not sick, #2 player, and still no feature matches!

we probably will if she and Maria make it to the quarters, definately a night match, but I have a feeling neither will make it that far.

They're probably saving her up for the final prime time match because they know she'll be there.

that's because most americans think that serena is the real no. 1.
besides personally i feel that the 1st match of the day is the best (the 11am one) cause you get to end early
maybe justine feels the same way?
either way i don't think it fazes her

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Well, she's not American and she's not Sharapova. Surprised?

Only an idiot would think Serena is the real No. 1. She is NOT ranked No. 1 and believe me she hasn't been playing like she's the number one player in the world either.

Perception is not reality.

This whole tournament is screwed up. I hope it doesn't rain so we end up with a travesty like last year.

Armstrong is the second show court, much bigger than Grandstand. Otherwise, you do have a valid point.

What happened is that US TV network executives want to have major American players OR Maria Sharapova on primetime (7-11 PM) playing Arthur Ashe stadium. So far, we had Serena and Roddick on day 1, Sharapova day 2, Capriati and Agassi day 3, Venus day 4, Serena and Roddick again on day 5 (today), and Lindsay and Venus tomorrow. They have to do this as much as possible during the first week, because by the second week many of the American players (and Maria!) could be out and they have no control over it.

I am sure Justine will get a night match. The final will be played next Saturday night.
