You think Henin-Sharapova match will be played today?

At the moment, it's the Joker's match and don't see it completing in an hour or two's time. Then there's Nadal and Hewitt - which would take at least 1 1/2 hours. And not forgetting the possibility of rain later.

By the time Henin and Sharapova goes to court, it'll be about 7pm the earliest....

I think maybe they'll play the first set?

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.

They should move it and play it today.
The organizers like these late dark matches because its primetime tv, but they need to start this by 7:30

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!!

Yeah and the most frustrating thing right now is that Novak was up a break that set and lost it.

Organizers should at least invest in some lights.

Re: You think Henin-Sharapova match will be played today?

if it's played today, it will be on another court.

This place is too small to put all the players i like here.

A roof is coming. But for now, the Monfils match stopping, Rezai match stopping,
they want that primetime entertainment

Agreed. Or at least a roof. It seems that Roland Garros has these problems more than any other slam..even Wimbledon before they built the roof.

Re: You think Henin-Sharapova match will be played today?

What's annoying is Henin/Sharapova last on Philippe Chatrier, Jankovic/Bondarenko last on Suzanne Lenglen, Pivovarova/Stosur last on Court 1... The 3 best matches of the day all last on court behind two men's matches. The same thing happened yesterday.

In NY it blows because I get up at 5 am to watch the women's match that is always first on, then I'm stuck watching men's for a good 6 hours before any women's is on again. Then, when they finally come on, ESPN2 shows repeat of the men's matches or it gets too dark

I used to list my favorite tennis players here...
...then they all retired.
I used to keep track of my rankings in fantasy games here...
...then I realized how much I suck.
I used to update this signature, once in a while...
...then I realized no one actually reads it.

Re: You think Henin-Sharapova match will be played today?

After Monfils and Rezai you'd think they'd learn...

I don't like either player but organisation-wise it'd be terrible if RG had to suspend a Philippe Chatrier match for the third day in a row mid-match.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Re: You think Henin-Sharapova match will be played today?

The worst thing about playing this late is that Eurosport won't cover the match completely since they always show "Game Set & Mats" exactly at 20:30.

But rain doesn't affect RG as much as Wimbledon or the US Open. I think they can get away without a roof due to the nature of the surface, but getting big ass lights on at least Center Court, SL, Courts 1 and 2 would mean they could play til 11pm or so, giving us an extra 2 hours of dry play.
