So which women's match will be in the Stadium Friday night?
There are some interesting matches set Friday for the third round. Four would seem to be possible choices for the night match in the Stadium:
Sharapova vs Burdette: ESPN loves Sharapova and she's usually in a feature match in their televised tournaments. She 's playing an American which is a draw but will they put her out there two matches in a row in the night match?
Stosur vs Lepchenko: If not the Maria match, this makes the most sense. The defending champ against a nationalized American who is moving up fast in the rankings, trains in NY and has family and friends not far away in NE Pennsylvania.
Li Na vs Robson: Biggest earner in the game off the court, won her last tune up and made the finals before that, a Grand Slam champ, against the player everyone knows the name of right now for beating Kim C.
Azarenka vs Zheng: This is a stretch, but Azarenka is # 1, playing another seed, and has been sort of shoved to the side in the scheduling of her first two matches.
What do you think?
