AO organisers disrespectful in scheduling

So they put Patty-Dechy on some "deserted" court...

Myskina gets a crappy court scheduling a few days ago...

Lindsay's doubles match was on SC 3....

Lindsay has only played on RL once (excluding today's match)

What next? Maybe they will put the women's doubles finals on MCA I have not seen any night matches since the quarters of women's singles... what the heck...

I think it depends on how entertainin the match is likely to be. I dunno who is her next opponent but I'm quite sure she will breeze thru the player in less than an hour. The organizers should decide which players put on the big courts based upon not how respectable the players are but their marketability and entertainment values.. Before you complain about Myskina being placed on a bigger court, why don't you take a closer look at who's on the centre court? I c someone who's ranked way below Nastya there.

Myskina is the reigning French Open champion. When was the last time Lindsay won a big one? Hmm...

so? whats your argument?! she won the FO last year so should be on a better court?! big wow!

If you wanna be like that, at least lindsays won the australian open and wimbledon before. MYSKINA hasnt! Lindsay didnt lose in the first round of sydney either!

To be honest im not familiar with the courts at the AUssie open, but as long as we see something off her, i dont care where she plays! she will be on the bigger courts in the next few days anyway!

I agree. The number 1 seed should be on no worse than the top two Arenas.

MCA is the 3rd biggest court, you have rod laver arena then vodafone arena then MCA, it's not a bad court by any means. i actually think its good that the top seeds dont always get centre court, gives the other players a chance to play on a big stage and get the experience and also show their stuff to a bigger audience.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

At least they should've placed lindsay on a later match in vodafone - now that i'd forgive. But not on MCA, coz i don't think it'll be televised because well it's on MCA and secondly, lindsay's opponent is ranked quite low.. but i can't understand why myskina is placed on vodafone coz her opponent is Obziler who is unseeded

They are counting on her to make the third rd, centre court now belongs to molik and hewitt. Federer even gets to play a suzuki, a likely triple bagel and her gets centre court.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

there is no logic to where they are placed really. look at wimbledon for instance. lindsay was shoved on the bottom courts for the better half of the first week. Its not such a big problem though because as she moves further through the tourney, they will show her matches. and whilst its annoying we dont see her paly live now, HOPEFULLY they will show something off her tomorrow!

Why do you put an "a" before Suzuki's name? He ain't a bad player at all having a huge serve and always rushing the net. He won't be triple bagelled by no means.
