Now that Venus and Federer both have 5 wimbledon titles...

This year Roger didn't have one match off centre court, and Venus was flung out onto the cold, cruel and harsh court 2 .

So next year, do you think both players will/should be treated equally, that is get only the 2 main courts (either Federer moved onto court 1 for once or Venus on centre only)? Do you think these is still a justification for Federer getting centre only (if he is still world number one, and number one seed)?

Any thoughts?


I'd just like to add that the moderating is disappointing. Even threads about equal prize money get closed down. This is like some police state, even Zimbabwe seems more liberal. I've lost count of the number of threads of mine, that stimulate some reasonable discussion have been deleted. What do they want us talking about.. dresses? cameltoe? FHM covers?

Re: Now that Venus and Federer both have 5 wimbledon titles...

its just not going to happen. theres still going to be 2 mens matches on the showcourts and 1 womens. maybe they can add another womens match on CC because of the roof

but after a match like todays, theres no way tht federer will ever be put on court 2

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

One is the 7th seed and the other has been the number 1 for how long now?

That obviously has to do with court placements.

What do you expect when these threads turn into a bash-fest... and we've had about 100 of these before?

Re: Now that Venus and Federer both have 5 wimbledon titles...

The overreaction to Venus being put on court 2 still amazes me. People make it out like she was banished to Siberia or something.

Anyway, on topic, Venus is not to women's tennis what Roger is to the men's game. When she has twelve slams and been at no.1 for as long I'm sure she'll get top billing as well.

Perhaps, but even had Henin on court 2 last year, her matches against Vesnina and Chakvetadze at least were on outside courts and she'd been number one almost consistently I think.

The new Court 2 is a stadium though so it won't be as cruel and cold

Venus is one of the best women's players now, even if she only wins Wimbledon these days... I don't get why it's Venus vs. Roger though. It's not like they banished Venus to make room for Roger.

Yeah, so? She doesn't deserve to be on center court all the time.

And with Venus being seeded 7th and playing crap almost everywhere else through out the year, I can't see why she should always get an automatic ticket to cc either. She's NOT the She was relegated on a very busy day that at the end saw more interesting women's matches that were rightly out on cc and court 1. Really people need to get over it.

Yeah, cause Serena vs Radwanska was played at the same day Venus was put on court 2.

I'm talking about Kuz vs Radwanska (on cc) and Vaidisova vs Chak (court 1).
