At least ONE women's qf will be on center

At least ONE women's qf will be on center court----

Serena vs. Mauresmo

It's more than a 50-50 all the rest will be on court Lenglen.

The Serena-Mauresmo match could get very ugly IMO.

The French want a country woman to win so bad they can taste it. Don't forget that Pierce wasn't REALLY French after all. Add
in Serena's relatively harmless mimic job a couple of months ago, her #1 status, and her habit of calling lines and this could be a champagne cork ready to pop with crowd participation at the drop of a hat.

I'm looking forward to this one-may the best woman win!

I think Mauresmo has her golden opportunity!

In the past Jordan they have put men's matches on center court and put all the women's quarters on court Lenglen. They rarely make exceptions.

serena can handle tough crowds especially this one since she knows that it's not against her but they are pro amelie

Not entirely correct.

The used to have the most important Women's quarter final on Center Court every time until 1999

Then in 2000, because of rain on Monday some men's matches still needed to be finished on Tuesday, which made them decide to have all four QF on Suzanne Lenglen.

Apparently they liked this system so they have been doing it this way ever since.

The surprising thing is that in their tournament schedule for this year the have 1 MS and 2 WS on both Ph. Chatrier and S. Lenglen

I couldn't agree more.....I hope this Parisian crowd will humbled once again until they learn what the word "sportmanship" means.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

Oh please, and who is going to teach the French crowd about sportsmanship, that great "sporting" US crowd that arbitrarily booed all the French players in the lead up to the Iraq conflict? Get real will you.

If Kim doesn't get a center court match then I hope she gets a court 1 match. Lenglen is the hell.

it's true about lenglen, but i believe on canvas yesterday, they said during the game of justine that all quarterfinals will be played on the 2 biggest courts, so on chatrier and lenglen..
serena-momo will definitely be on chatrier, but think kim and justine will be placed on lenglen

If 2 matches are going to be on center court than I don't think both Kim and Justine will be on Lenglen court. One of their matches will be on center probably Kim v. Conchita.

I'm very excited about the Serena vs Amelie
match. I hope it lives up to the billing It's
an upsized moment for Amelie. The crowds were
very supportive of Amelie so far this year; but
you just never know with the French they might
just turn against her too if they think she's letting
them down.
