Should AO organizers give Serena a Kuznetsova treatment?
At the U.S.Open Kuznetsova couldn't play in the centre court as the defending champion because "she was off form". According to this argument and in terms of consistency, should Serena play in the second court?
That's just a lie. Thye didn't want her on Centre Court because not many Americans know of, nor do they really like Kuzzy. Unfortunately they treated her unfairly. There is no denying that Serena Williams is the most famous tennis player in the word, along side Venus Williams. Putting her on a court besides Centre Court would be an absolute ridiculous decision.
Serena sort of has to be on center court for safety/security reasons. Same reason Anna was on center courts when her ranking was in the 100s. Sticking Serena on the Grandstand or a big outer court would be complete fucking chaos. I remember they stuck a Capriati mixed doubles match with her brother on an outer court at the US Open one year. It was the most ridiculous thing I'd ever seen. People were literally standing on bleachers one and two courts over to watch the match.
Serena is a much bigger star than Svetlana. Her first match will surely be on Center Court, but they'll have to throw her on Court 1 for at least one match, but nothing "less than" Court 1(or whatever they call it down under).
