People in IW see Davenport every year, while Martina wasn't seen for 3 years

Florencia Molinero


Madison Keys <> Petra Kvitova <> Simona Halep

Greet Minnen <> BFCD <> Amanda Anisimova <> Sloane Stephens

Hingis on eursport tonight again?

I remember back in 2000/2001 eurosport might as well have been hingissport
im not complaining these days though, its great to see her play.

As for lindsay on court 2... well, in the circumstances i think its acceptable.

World number four, is not world number one. So no outside centre court immunity.

Secondly, perhaps THEY think most of her matches are BORING. Who wants to see lindsay batter a helpless opponent like she did Harkerload or even what horrible thing she did to Maria Sharapova.

Hingis has been away, and is a joy to watch (perhaps in their opinion) - and will give the showcourts... a show.

The fact that Davenport is American iderally shouldn't mean she gets special treatment.

I think...

I think it's a scheduling problem what with the rain delays and such. And as much as I love Lindsay I think that Martina is probably a bigger crowd puller right now what with the comeback aura all around her. Just aslong as I get a centre court Davenport v Hingis I will be happy!

Lindsay is what she is, which is all good. What she isn't is a drama queen, or a bombshell, or a loudmouth, or any of several things that grab the attention of fans and media.

and number one seed Justine on court two

According to Eurosport 1, Justines match will be broadcasted 8 pm cet. The weather has totally ruined the whole schedule but well at least I get to see that match
