Wimbledon Middle Monday: Best Day In Tennis or Unfair for SEWTA

the commentator say that the middle Monday of Wimbledon is the best day in tennis because the last 16 men and the last 16 women will all play their match ... so yes it is exciting that the draws will go from 16 to 8 in one day because at AO, RG and USO this takes 2 two days

but when I look at the schedule, I think this is really unfair for SEWTA and for fans of SEWTA at Wimbledon ... at noon Venus, Marion, JaJa and NaNa will all start their matches and then at 13.00 JuJu and Mama start their match ... so probably 5 of the 8 matches at the same time and then the other matches are all scheduled as 2nd match on court and will also be going on at same time

so a SEWTA fan won't be able to enjoy all the matches ... will just have to switch from match to match

Henin vs Clijsters really should have been in the centre court. With the roof now, there was space for 4 matches per day.

Re: Wimbledon Middle Monday: Best Day In Tennis or Unfair for SEWTA

I know I agree.

It should be the best day but the stupid organizers just care about getting the women's matches finished so you can't enjoy more than two or three. To see any of the others you have to constantly be switching.

Will the ladies quarters be on the tuesday then? All of them?

I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

Re: Wimbledon Middle Monday: Best Day In Tennis or Unfair for SEWTA

Play on SUNDAY for God's sake. This would fix this problem. The only time they play the middle Sunday is when rain has disrupted the schedule drasticly. Since they got the roof is seems to never rain there?? Whats going on???

Re: Wimbledon Middle Monday: Best Day In Tennis or Unfair for SEWTA

I accept that I have to watch online. Then I'll pick a match and watch the scoreboard, maybe switch to a closer match if I'm interested in it.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

It must be, because I think there are just 2 men QFs on, I might be mistaken though!

Rest in Peace Bally!

Re: Wimbledon Middle Monday: Best Day In Tennis or Unfair for SEWTA

The US Open and Australian Open have the best women's schedules. At least we get to see all the women's quarters, 2 one day, 2 the next.

Wimbledon

BTW, Middle Monday =
