Correct order of play (if no more rain delay), according to wtatour.com:
in red, singles quaterfinals
in blue, singles semifinals

Centre Court (from 10.30hrs)
1. Mauresmo vs. Kuznetsova (to finish)
2. Hingis vs. Sharapova (NB 11.30hrs)
3. [Mauresmo or Kuznetsova] vs. [Henin-Hardenne or Schiavone] (NB 14.00hrs)
4. Mirza/Vento-Kabchi vs. Hantuchova/Sugiyama
5. [Hingis or Sharapova] vs. [Kirilenko or Davenport] (NB 19.00hrs)
6. Doubles semifinal (TBA)

Court 1 (from 10.30hrs)
1. Henin-Hardenne vs. Schiavone
2. Likhovtseva/Zvonareva vs. A.Bondarenko/K.Bondarenko
3. Jankovic/N.Li vs. Peschke/Schiavone
4. Doubles semifinal (TBA)

Court 3 (from 11.30hrs)
1. Kirilenko vs. Davenport
2. Kuznetsova/Petrova vs. Yan/Zheng

so the top half will have less time between the QF and the SF than the bottom half (1-2 h vs 5-6 h)... I really think they should have put Mirza/Vento-Kabchi vs. Hantuchova/Sugiyama before the 1st SF! :o

thats stupid. kuznetsova possibly has to play 3 matches in 1 day. IF she beats mauresmo i bet she chops the doubles.

If she wins both signel and double matches, she has the chance to play 4 matches in 1 day.

yeah, they should have put that doubles match before the 1st semi!

Is there live scored from courts 2 and 3? I couldn't find any on the site. :shrug:

that is a hard schedule for the ladies. I think most of the Women who have a double Match too, won't play it.

It's a crazy schedule for all of them, although I reckon ame is probably the fittest of them so may be ok. It will be a test for all of them

[Hingis or Sharapova] and [Kirilenko or Davenport] arent going to be feeling like playing much tennis by 1900

First of all, it sucks because the Momo-Kuzzie match will start at 1:30am here and I can't stay up for it :p

But yes, I agree they should put the doubles match on before the first singles semi :(

TV Schedule probably dictated the scheduling. In order to show the semifinals I am guessing, one semifinal had to be at 2pm while the other at 7pm. Tough luck. It's not that bad though. Each girl will be under the same conditions so it's not unfair. For the doubles, yes. But for the singles competitors and singles only, the scheduling is fine.

That's a poor schedule, I hope Justine means business and finished Schiavone easily, but as of now - it's probably gonna be a tough match and it's no guarantee at all she'll win, though I believe she will. Allez!

Kuznetsova, take Amélie to three long sets! :p

That's a :crazy: ass schedule!!! survival of the fittest eh...

at least maria is in the group made up of arguably less athletic and fit players...:tape:

bellascarlett
Feb 24th, 2006, 03:16 AM
possibly 4 matches: her QF versus Amelie, then the doubles QF, then the singles SF and the doubles SF! :eek:

:eek: Kuzzy! I would :worship: her if she gets through all 4! Cmon Sveta! :lol:

whats wrong with the schedule? college and juniors routinely play 2 matches in one day..these are pro athletes 2 matches in a few hours is no big deal... and if you can get through both singles and doubles matches without withdrawing, now thats something to behold

Yeah will TTC show the quarters now that they have been moved? omg i have my fingers crossed...please...:bounce:

I just hope that the rain doesn't wash everything away... it's tough for the players, but at least the winners of the first two quarters will be in a similar position, both without much rest.

Kim and Ai had to play 4 matches once... I can't remember which tournament it was (in the US... I think), Ai defeated Kim in the final and they both won the doubles title. So it wouldn't be something new if Francesca or Sveta had to play all those matches in a day. :)
