... while whole men's draw is scheduled for tomorrow (= 96 matches in total).

Sounds okay. 12.00 noon start though. :o

They should start earlier but they can do it in this amount of time. The men are gonna have serve dominated matches so It really shouldnt be too long of matches. Well I guess ESPN will show every match I dont want to see:D:rolleyes:

What they REALLY should do is schedule play on the first Sunday. Everybody and their mother knows it's going to rain during the tournament, so why not make it easier on themselves with a scheduled 13th day? If they could do away with the curtsy (which a lot of the women players like to do, strangely enough), they could do away with the open Middle Sunday.

matches on grass generally aot less time than on other surfaces. The middle sunday is still open to use should the need arise anyway.

So does anyone know if the bottom half, eg Kim, JHH, Svetlana etc will still play their second round matches on Wednesday? So that the whole women's draw will be playing on Wednesday? If so this is amazing for me since that's when im planning to go to Wimby :drool:

They were a vocal minority; I don't think the majority liked doing it.

Because it is perfect for the BBC if they start around lunch time... I'm not complaining though, means I can get up at 10.45 make breakfast and spend the day in front of the telly watching whatever match I want :p

Why are they starting at 12 and 1 p.m. I thought they usually started at 10 or 11.

Venus needs to hire you as her personal cheerleader to compensate you for the loss of work and money :p
