You are right. Court 4 has no TV coverage ( and no possibilitiy for it ). It is really strange. Even Schiavone-Sugiyama was on better court, and here we have a Top 10 player against a multiple GS winner.

I also found it strange to not have Myskina versus Pierce playing on 1 of the 3 showcourts at the U.S. Open.

But I hope Anastasia can finish Pierce off today and get ready for henin-Hardenne tomorrow.

Udachi Ana!

P.S. - The USA Cable Television Network was interviewing players yesterday and they had a clip of Anastasia and she comes off as being as nice and likable as I thought she was.

It is me, or does anyone else think that they should've let the two women's matches finish before putting the guys on?? Now Capriati and Henin-Hardenne will get 2 days of rest, and Natsya and rest won't!!!

JLD, it's wrong for the womens quaterfinal matches to be started before the last 2 women's round of 16 matches are completed. Because their matche started first, here is a good chance that the Clijsters/Mauresmo and Davenport/Suarez quaterfinal matches will be over before the Myskina/Pierce and Schiavone/Sugiyama round of 16 matches are over. The round of 16 women's matches should have started before the women's quarterfinal matches started. Ana must be pulling her hair out by now. Rain delays are bad enough. But this is ridiculous! And there may be 2 more days of rain delays. I've never seen anyhting like this at the U.S. Open.

I just hope Ana can cope with the delays and finish Pierce off in 2 sets and then get ready forher huge quarterfinal match against Justine Henin-Hardenne.

Udachi Ana!

There's an article about Nastya in today's New York Times. Nastya got to the tennis center at 11am two days ago with Jens Gerlach, her German coach and boyfriend. They spent the whole day waiting. Nastya rode on a stationary bike at least 10 different times. She and Pierce got on the court after 11pm, more than 12 hours of waiting. There were 30 people in the stands. Afterwards, they ate and Nastya got to bed at 2am. She was back 9:30am yesterday. Again they waited all day.
The article says that at Wimbledon, Nastya can walk to her rented home.
In Melbourne, it's a 5 minute drive in a chauffeured van.
Here, Nastya would have to drive 30 minutes to practice, and then drive 30 minutes back.
Nastya spends a lot of the day playing cards.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

They let Nastya go back to her hotel early this evening.
If the rains let up, it's only men playing tonight.
Nastya was on USA Network today. She said she was in the quarters of the AO, but never here. And that this is a big match for her.
Nastya said she was going to attack Pierce from the first point on, when their match resumes.
Vamos Nastya!

It sucks that Natsya will have to play 2 matches tomorrow, assuming that she beats Pierce.
That will slim down her chance of beating Henin even more!

Not necessarily. Lets be optimistic, if Nastya plays a focused and good game , she will wrap it up in 6-7 games most, and 6-7 games is really nothing, just a warm up. Normally players do not get any residual fatigue is they play less than hour. You play 40 minutes, you have 5 hours break, maybe even nap, and in 5 hours you are fresh again. But this all is not making much sense anyway. By current weather forecast there is not much chance for a play of any significant length tomorrow up to 5-7 pm. And if they get a 1hour window and Nasyta manages to werap it up, it won't be a problem for her. You better think that Henin hasn't play a competitive match for three days, that's an unusual pause, it could affect her in some way.

Congrats! The long wait is over. At least my prediction is right that she made this far to QF... but I want a better surprise!

C'mon, you can do it for us! Henin! Good luck Myskina!
