Today's women semifinal matches doesn't make any freaking sense...

From 12.30pm @ Arthur Ashe...

Kim Clijsters vs Serena Williams

followed by

Rafeal Nadal vs Fernando Gonzales (to finish) - maybe moved to Louis Armstrong

followed by

Yanina Wickmayer vs Caroline Wozniacki - maybe moved to Louis Armstrong

=============================================

Putting a match that will DEFINATELY gain more viewers at the time where everyone is working is "SURELY" gonna help to boost the TV ratings....

I mean come on... you have two Slam winners (one-ex, one current) playing each other, both loved and supported by the American crowd, with the possibility of a fairytale comeback (if Clijsters win)... who wouldn't want to watch this match live?

Instead, what you get on TV after coming back from work is a UE slugfest by two youngsters which doesn't make for good viewing. And to top that up, you only get to watch the earlier match on a REPEAT whereby most of the fans would have known the score by then, which kinda kills the mood....

Just my two cents, people... feel free to fire if you disagree...

Australian Open 2010 Final Result:-
Lost to Serena Williams 4-6, 6-3, 2-6 (Great job, girl! Now prepare for FO!)

They have placed Serena-Kim match first to give them the best chance to complete the match, because the weather forecast for today is not good.

They can't build it in 1 day. But probably start to think about it after this year's tournament, if it fails somehow because of the rain.

Wouldn't it make more sense to finish the last remaining men's QF first?

mens doesnt involve a US player does it
why do you think Roddick managed to win 2003 US Open ?
he had days of rest while others had to play 4 five set matches in consecutive days

This is a very unfair schedule. Someone is going to be screwed royally.
If serena and kim go the distance, and nadal goes the distance, the winner of cara/yanina will have just a fraction of the rest time of the other finalist.This would be terrible considering that the final is played on saturday night.
That being said I don't want the women to play at the same time, i want to watch both matches.I also want to watch nada1.
once agai

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

You've got a point. Still, as a Rafa fan I have to say this stinks
