dubai scheduling and tv coverage

two cracking matches on the outside court on wednesday

kirilenko vs safarova
hantuchova vs kuznetsova

but we won't get coverage of these. instead we'll get the top seeds playing fairly uncompetitive matches.

Plus its what happens when a lot of the top 20 turn up in a small field and then you have to add a Hingis and Sfar TV requirement.

Francesca outranks all 4 of those palyers and she was sent to the second court today so we could see 4 players ranked outside the top 30.

No-one knows what a result will be.... There's no guarantee of a cracking match, ever.

If we were at 7-6 5-7 4-4 with Linds and Likhovtseva and Maria K/Lucie was 6-1 4-1 to Maria, other people would be having a cow about not being able to see such an exciting upset on the cards if Linds had been put on the smaller court.

I think I would have done the same as the schedulers, if given those matches to schedule and I didn't already have the results in my crystal ball.
