Especially since it could be a good match.

Rest in Peace Bally!

Re: When was the last time...

When Sveta was defending USO champion she played her round 1 match on the 3rd biggest court. I remember that

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

Re: When was the last time...

maybe because everyone is so sick of watching aga playing

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: When was the last time...

Why would they want to showcase the dull side of women's tennis?

Re: When was the last time...

I dont know but Aga's never been a top 8 seed before has she?

Theres probably never been one boring enough for this to happen, but she's managed it.

She's such a trailblazer

Re: When was the last time...

Which courts are televised, beyond the three big show courts?

Re: When was the last time...

Oh come on, Radwanska is nowhere close to being eighth in terms of star power on the WTA side, even if she's the 8th seed.

Re: When was the last time...

Kimiko Date Krumm(JPN) vs. Jarmila Groth(AUS)
and
Potito Starace(ITA) vs. Robby Ginepri(USA)

will be shown, but Aga vs. Yari not?
