Re: no ladies allowed

Soderling, Murray and Nadal are bigger names than the women on offer today.

Besides, I didn't know Mama Kim had become a man.

Re: no ladies allowed

The only other ladies match that maybe could be on RLA, is Bepa. And shes been on Centre Court more than Murray or Sod, so you can't complain :/

Re: no ladies allowed

I've not paid any attention to scheduling this year so I might be talking crap, but if I had tickets for that session I'd wanna know why I usually would get 3 matches but today I get 2.

Re: no ladies allowed

Its true the women have been on Ashe & RLA more than the men.
But the bottom half lost some star power when Stosur lost.

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

Re: no ladies allowed

Feels like there has been a ton of women's matches on RLA day session, like two to one the whole tournament?

i'm not complaining about the presence of two men's matches; i'm worried about the complete absence of oestrogen - ao organisers couldn't be bothered with even a ladies' doubles match?

why? what is expected to happen with these two men's matches that i as a gambling punter should know?

yes i noticed that the number of women's matches on centre during the day has outnumbered the men's every day this week; which is strange.

but not as strange as the complete absence of a ladies' match today.

well i always like to see every match that i can - betting in-play is useless without video.

and peng's game is so different from aga's that it should be an interesting match-up.

Re: no ladies allowed

IMO they should put women's so its more matches they can just have either Murray/Soderling as night match on Hisense, which is cool too lame scheduling, though can't really complain because the women have gotten the benefit all week until this point.

Aga should definitely be on Hisense though!

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies! Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet

Re: no ladies allowed

Rennae Stubbs's mixed Doubles match will most likely be the 3rd match.
