Svetlana Kuznetsova opens US Open title defence on Armstrong court.

Serena, Rafa, Venus, Maria and Andre are all on Ashe.

Not really that surprising. I know Wimbledon do this as tradition. Anyone remember the last Ladies champion not to have their opening match on Ashe?

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

Hopefully if/when she wins, they'll keep her out in Court 13/17 area so she's not pressured and can make her way to Ashe on the 2nd Saturday.

A little insulting in my view to put the defending champion on anything but center court on the first day.

Frankly, with the way she's played this year and the little notoriety she has, she's lucky not to be on the Grandstand.

It makes sense. All 5 of those are HUGE names. Kuznetsova is not.

Yeah, but Myskina was put on Chatrier and she had a horrible year going into the French. The problem for Sveta is the side of the side of the draw she's on. If she were on the other half, she would have probably played first match of the day on Ashe on Tuesday.

Honestly, it's probably a good thing she won't be on Ashe. Less people to see her be humiliated?

Andre on Ashe? surely this should result in a substantial fine,or even a short prison term for placing on public exhibition anyone who takes steps like that

BepaZvonareva Don't read my reps anymore, very relaxing Lydia Ko , Felicity Jones, Emilia Clarke, Rachel Khoo.

Absolutely true in my opinion. Of course sheŽs not much of a big name but you own it to the still reignign champion. Every other slam works this way, the USO is the only that doesnŽt. Definetly not "nice".

The tournement organisers should show the defending champion some respect and put her on Arthur Ashe

To the contrary very few do to Ashley until the QF's cause it is an awful, viewer unfriendly stadium .More fans go to Armsrong a more confortable,place.

I don't care whether or not she's famous. And even though I don't like her at all, I still think this is a really crappy move by the schedulers.
