Do you think Venus requested to play last because of her injury ?

Surprised the Venus/Petkovic match is scheduled 2nd after the men's match, which is very unsual for a night session at the AO. Something tells me Venus requested to play last.

All I know is that if Petkorazzi wins she'll probably get death threats for the dance from some WS fans.

They probably thinkg there is going to be some drama. Everyone has seen Venus have some dramatic matches but I actually hope it is more of a routine win for Venus.

Idk, possibly.

There won't be any death threats.

Re: Do you think Venus requested to play last because of her injury ?

I would imagine yes. It makes no sense otherwise when you have potential thrillers like Henin/Kuz, and even Caro/Domi. There is the risk that this match could be a blow out/retirement too depending on the severity of Vee's injury. Of course whenever Vee is playing, drama is pretty much a given
I just hope they can take to the court at a reasonable time and not midnight or something like that.

I don't call the rythmless and tacky shit she does after her rare and occasionnal wins a "dance".

And why would it be important if Serena's lesser sister asked to play last?
I can't at some's desperation to create a thread.

No, I think that the scheduling people know that she was injured and this is their way of respect for a 7 time GS Champion Just an ordinary kind gesture on their part!

I think you are probably correct. That sort of thing happens all the time. Particularly first round matches for people who are travelling all around the world. I remember last year Tobias Kamke was allowed to play a European challenger 1st round on a wednesday when he had been in the final of a US one on the Sunday. It is just being considerate.

Plus they want a good match and the longer Venus has to prepare herself, the better the potential match-up is.

I'd assume it went something like that, or the organisers done it independently of her asking. I can't think of any other reason why they wouldn't put the Justine and Svetlana match as the night match.

I hope Venus is a sport and does the Petko dance along with Andrea, win or lose. That might help relieve the bad taste left by the godawful outfits in everyone's mouths.

That's none of your concern, considering Jelena Jankovic has many issues of her own. Just saying.
