Question What do you think of the OOP for tomorrow in Dubai?

Correct order of play (if no more rain delay), according to wtatour.com:
in red, singles quaterfinals
in blue, singles semifinals

Centre Court (from 10.30hrs)
1. Mauresmo vs. Kuznetsova (to finish)
2. Hingis vs. Sharapova (NB 11.30hrs)
3. [Mauresmo or Kuznetsova] vs. [Henin-Hardenne or Schiavone] (NB 14.00hrs)
4. Mirza/Vento-Kabchi vs. Hantuchova/Sugiyama
5. [Hingis or Sharapova] vs. [Kirilenko or Davenport] (NB 19.00hrs)
6. Doubles semifinal (TBA)

Court 1 (from 10.30hrs)
1. Henin-Hardenne vs. Schiavone
2. Likhovtseva/Zvonareva vs. A.Bondarenko/K.Bondarenko
3. Jankovic/N.Li vs. Peschke/Schiavone
4. Doubles semifinal (TBA)

Court 3 (from 11.30hrs)
1. Kirilenko vs. Davenport
2. Kuznetsova/Petrova vs. Yan/Zheng

so the top half will have less time between the QF and the SF than the bottom half (1-2 h vs 5-6 h)... I really think they should have put Mirza/Vento-Kabchi vs. Hantuchova/Sugiyama before the 1st SF!

thats stupid. kuznetsova possibly has to play 3 matches in 1 day. IF she beats mauresmo i bet she chops the doubles.

LINDSAY DAVENPORT!
Say what you like about Davenport, but shes achieved what most others could only dream of!

Jelena Jankovic
Mary Pierce MARTINA HINGIS! Kim Clijsters Ana Ivanovic

possibly 4 matches: her QF versus Amelie, then the doubles QF, then the singles SF and the doubles SF!

If she wins both signel and double matches, she has the chance to play 4 matches in 1 day.

Is there live scored from courts 2 and 3? I couldn't find any on the site.

Women's tennis sucks.

that is a hard schedule for the ladies. I think most of the Women who have a double Match too, won't play it.

It's a crazy schedule for all of them, although I reckon ame is probably the fittest of them so may be ok. It will be a test for all of them

close your eyes and believe

[Hingis or Sharapova] and [Kirilenko or Davenport] arent going to be feeling like playing much tennis by 1900

that's silly OOP! (cyrille tu fais quoi encore debout toi? )

Laissez nous créer, une arme en amour, une bombe à lumière, un fusil à fleur, une vie sans barrière.
Laissez nous rêver, d’un enfant président, d’un roi sans couronne, d’un Jésus indien, d’un Dieu qui pardonne, même ceux qui l’oublient.

Liberté ― Angélique Ionatos
