I'm confused. Where did they put Sharapova?

Lenglen is a slower court. Advantage Henin v. Stosur. The court will eat up her serve.

Trust me, if Henin wanted to be on Chartier, she'd be there.

I think they need at least one good, promising match on SL to sell their tickets. Gabashvili, Verdasco and Shvedova could not be so interesting for an average RG-visitor

And besides, Henin has played on Chatrier so often already so they wanted to give players like Peer and Hantuchova a chance to play their match on the biggest court.

I hope you don't mind too much that I don't trust you.

Not at all...
All the tickets are sold out since a very long time...
So it's not a reason...

I agree with you !
Dementieva, Kuznetsova, Sharapova are often scheduled on court 1 or 2...
And i don't understand why Justine is always on the chatrier...
She is always playing on chatrier against players who are never playing on this court and it's a big advantage for Justine !


But what i really think is that this match would have to be scheduled on the Chatrier !

1 - Henin / Stosur is a kind of final and Chatrier's spectators are paying to watch the big matches (and it is a very BIG match !)
If i have had a Chatrier's ticket for today, i would be very angry

2 - This amazing match can be watched by "only" 9000 spectators. On the Chatrier, there would be 15000 spectators !
The Chatrier is biggest and deserve the best matches ! (Henin/Stosur and Verdasco/Almagro)
