I'm delighted. I was worried this would be on one of the top 2 courts and that would have meant queueing all night and a lot of money. This is much better. Nastya seems very comfortable on this court too. It's going to be awfully crowded through. I also wish the 1st match was Lopez v Ancic rather than Mirnyi vs T Johansson - not a match I will particularly enjoy having to sit through.
The reason for this order of courts is because it will be at "Crazy Monday" when all the 4rd games (Men and Women) playing in the same day. Just see what other games will be and you understand why they aren't playing in the main courts. Court 13 is one of the biggest among the small courts (capacity of 1600).
15. In the interest of The Championships and of the Wimbledon crowds, and also of domestic and international television and the press, every effort is made to put the best players and the best matches on the show courts. Six show courts are especially programmed. These, in order, with spectator accommodation in brackets, are Centre Court (13,813), No.1 Court (11,429), Court 2 (2,990), Court 13 (1,541), Court 3(800) and Court 18 (788+). Prestige attaches to an appearance on any of these six courts.
I can't think of a witty signature right now. I like turtles.
Actually court 13 is a much better court than number 3.
Court 13 has a much bigger stand and also has some seats on the other side where as court 3 isnt as big stand and no seats on the other side (just perople standing and making noise putting off the player.
So basically court 13 is more like a stadium court where as court 3 is just like an outside court with people putting players off.
Im surprised court 18 is not bigger. At leats it seems so. It has seats on 3 sides of the court but I suppose it has a big row of people standing watching the matches from above so it makes it to basically a 1000 people anyway. Court 3 is the lames of the show courts. Court 13 IMO is the best outside of centre, 1 and 2. Basically because it has a big shelter for shade where people sit so when it was really hot earlier in the week I just went and watched Karlovic v Bracciali because there was shade
