Ana Ivanovic does not deserve to be on Ashe stadium doesn't have results.

I am not a Victoria Azarenka or Samantha Stosur fan but I think it is disturbing that Ana Ivanovic gets her matches on center court so many times. Ivanovic hasn't done much on the WTA in the past four years. She might beat reach the QF of the US OPEN but that would be the first time in FOUR YEARS she's reached that far in a major.

I think it disturbing that Ivanovic is getting on the big stage while Petra Kvitova never got on to Ashe even though she won Wimbledon last year. It isn't right that Ivanovic is getting on to the stadium court when she doesn't deserve or earned it.

Do people forget Ivanovic was destroyed 6-0 6-0 by Roberta Vinci in Montreal just two weeks ago in the third round.


Ivanovic doesn't deserve the big stage because her results in the last few years are poor and underwhelming. The only reason I can see Ivanovic getting on center court is due to sexism. Ivanovic is considered pretty for heterosexual male consumers. Even though Ivanovic hasn't done anything on the WTA in over four years.

Another insightful thread.... it would be better if you just shut up

Ivanovic attracts huge crowd every year at the US Open. Her last match Ashe Stadium was packed, and for the other matches there is always a lot of people who want to watch her, actually since 06 this happens. She is one of the stars of WTA.

New York loves Ivanovic

ITF: She is the sole author of her own misfortune.

Choosing one woman over another woman isn't sexism. She is more well known than Victoria and even Sam, despite her winning the US Open last year. It's a business, and she must bring in more viewers I suppose.

Has less to do with results than how many people want to see her. If they put her on a smaller stadium, lots of fans wouldn't be able to get in to see her, and holders of expensive Ashe seats might feel gypped to have to leave it to go elsewhere to see a favorite. Roddick is only ranked 20th, but all of his matches are on AA as so many people want to see him --- it's the way it is.

I agree. VIP is synonymous with "local" or "peasant" these days.

It's not Ana's fault we have an anonymous, boring-as-hell number one.

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.

Re: Ana Ivanovic does not deserve to be on Ashe stadium doesn't have results.

I personally think that Ana shouldn't have been on Ashe for her match against Ardvisson. They probably wanted to put a decent girls that would draw some crowd early in the morning without taking too big names for later matches on Grandstand or Armstrong. Ivanovic was then a decent choice. Who else should have been up there then? Jankovic lmao? Errani? ugh don't think so.

Her match against Stephens was the obvious choice, because of Sloane not because of Ivanovic.

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki

People are buying to much on being on Ashe. have you seen the crowd during the first matches they were bad as people are just getting around. I actually think it's better to be on Armstrong second than to be first on Ashe.
