Exclamation 2009 USO - Women Sometime Play 2nd Match In Night Session

I read it in Tennis Magazine from USA at my tennis club
http://www.tennis.com/magazine/issue.aspx?id=181892
(it is in the magazine, not online)

they say that this year men will play 1st match of night session once every two night (like Monday, Wednday, Friday, Sunday) and women will play 1st match other night

it is because David Ferrer had to eat MacDonalds after his match with Nadal ended past midnight one year and he complain

but I think this bad for WTA because sometimes the crowd will just leave after the men's match and the women's match will be play to empty stands

and probably Jankovic will complain if her match starts at midnight after men's 5 setter

I agree that it is not going to be good for women's tennis. Jankovic/Dulko played a night match after Nadal this year in Miami, and while the stadium was packed to the rafters for Nadal, it was nearly empty for the women. I suppose it's "fair", but seeing all those empty stands on TV will be depressing.

If she complain she had to go to court 18 in Wimbledon as 2 seed (helicopter quote), imagine if she happens to start a match past midnight? She´ll definetly complain!
