Was going by the WTA webpage's listed OOP;if you go there now,you'll see that CC shows a 1300 start time and all the other courts 1330

WTA suffering from Dementieva withdrawal, a lack of true queens

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Yep. There's a lot of people who even after her overwhelming victory at Wimbledon don't realize she's the future of women's tennis. The final was probably the only Petra match they ever saw
But who cares. She's been doing fine until now, being an unknown, so Maria, Serena and Kim can get all the attention.
Petra can keep winning titles and Grandslams and I won't be bothered if she's not "that" famous. Don't feel she's the kind of person that enjoys being in the spotlight all the time either

Re: Rogers Cup, Toronto

^Petra is the present and future of WTA and people should recognize it and promote accordingly. I'm speaking as a Maria fan since 2004. I absolutely enjoy watching Petra, she is powerful yet very fluid.

Re: Rogers Cup, Toronto

Shux! The Canadian Wozniak won today, and will advance tomorrow. I wonder what that will do to the Center Court schedule for tomorrow and Petra?

I guess we find out tonight. Stay tuned!

Sorry for those fans of Wozniak. Nothing personal. Lol.

You mean she will not be on CC and on TV, but other BS people, who shall remain nameless, will?

WTF?

Expecting a good show-up of Petra fans @ 11AM on the Live Scores thread after what seems an eternal wait!

Re: Rogers Cup, Toronto

Reigning Wimbledon champion can't get on CC. Not even the grandstand.
But Court 1?

What insult.

Petra's too classy and business oriented for this, but if I was her, I would of complained and asked to play on Center Court.

I would of said, "I haven't played in 6 wks, and I got fans that wanna watch me play around the world, and you guys gonna put me on Court 1, with no television?" "Dammit, play me on C Court!"

Sheesh! I'm tired of Live Score, with Petra. Lol.

Re: Rogers Cup, Toronto

I hope she has a chip on her shoulder, instead of being put asleep by Court 1, and it's crowd?

Re: Rogers Cup, Toronto

They're Freaking kidding me in Toronto!!

They have Schiavone and Makarova on the Grandstand? Who the hell makes up these schedules, Toronto or the WTA? This is bullshit!

No care's about Schiavone! She won her French, last year, just like Li Na (who's on CC at 11am) won hers two majors ago. Petra is the current Wimbledon champion, and future/potential star. Schiavone and Li's careers, are virtually over.

WTF is wrong with these tournament organizers and the WTA? Their whole system of scheduling is always so antiquated, and seemingly 6 months to a yr behind? Where's the respect and reward for Petra!!!????

And Azarenka made Center Court, by virtue of playing the Canadian Dubois.

Petra can't catch a break from the clowns running women's tennis.

WTF?

Re: Rogers Cup, Toronto

Are there any streams from Toronto you know of?? From what you are saying, there are no streams from court 1, right??

Feel good about her not being on CC or grandstand. She started Wimby from back courts up, so it might be a good karma for her. Hopefully Medina Garrigues is a clay courter I kinda expect, she is beatable. Fingers crossed PK is not gonna be in UE-rusty mode.

Petro, pojd!!

Re: Rogers Cup, Toronto

These Rogers organizers might be as dumb as some of the idiots who run Bad Gastein...according to an Austrian resident who had a clear live feed,last year the grounds crew just stood there with their thumbs up their asses,watching the sky,during yet another of B.Gastein's constant multitude of rainy days...as if to wonder,'Gee,do you think it might stop raining soon?'...and THEN,after a couple hours when the clay got nice and drenched,they decided to roll out the tarp to protect the court.I'm not saying that RC has sunk to that level yet,but I've been underwhelmed with their administrative skills
