Confusing Doha schedule

Serena will be playing her third match before Kuznetsova plays her second, where's the logic in that?

And am I the only one who thinks the schedule looks amateurish? Like Friday; "1st match, followed by 2nd match, followed by 3rd match". Reaaaaaaaaally? I thought the order might have been different! And you have no idea yet who the players might be?

Re: Confusing Doha schedule

yeah i know that is strange. but change the order of play and serena plays her third after sveta plays her second. also i guess vee and serena got friday as their day off as they are the only ones playing doubles 2. i think they like to put the most anticipated match on last (although it really should be second given the time play ends and the small nmber who hang around to catch the end!)

Re: Confusing Doha schedule

thats WTA for you........... they've done this ever since RR started for them

ATP do it properly (heck they have 6 days for RR matches to WTA 4) but even when ATP had it over 4 it was never a mess like it is with WTA.

Re: Confusing Doha schedule

Venus and Serena have doubles Saturday, so the schedulers gave them a day off between the two draws. Next topic, please.
