View Full Version : Why must Nadia play 3 days in a row? It's unfair :(

Rules say that every participant in RR plays 3 matches with 1 day off. But Nadia has to play 3 straight days :o

Yesterday she played a tough two-hour match vs Martina. Justine yesterday had a day off. So of course JHH will be MUCH fresher than Nadia.

And what was if Nadia had 2 days of 2-houred matches? :rolleyes:

Why did they make Nadia's chances much fewer than anyone else's? :tape:

Very disappointing schedule :help:

And so will Kim, and Sveta.

I think because of the Round Robin format 2 players from each group are certain to play 3 days in row. :shrug:

and so will martina (from the same group). and so will kim and sveta. that's half of the field, so there's really nothing to whine about, they're not exclusively targetting petrova.

actually petrova doesnt even has it the worst. if kim or sveta makes it into the finals, they'd be playing 5 straight days. isnt that worse than poor nadia's 3 straight days?

I wish Maria played on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Then she'd have Friday off before the semi-finals.

It's the ones who had a Wednesday start that I feel sorry for - potentially five days in a row for them. Why can't they just play the round robin on Monday to Thursday, and give everyone a day off on Friday?

Relax :wavey:

I just said rules told each player would have a day off.

petrova has, doesnt she? she gets the last day of the 4 day RR off. the rules didnt state she must have a day off between her 3 matches

"The round robin stage of the Sony Ericsson Championships will be conducted over four days between Tuesday and Friday, with each player meeting the other three women in their Group (with one day’s rest)"

http://www.sonyericsson-championships.com/en/news/story/300.asp

I've understood this phrase as this should be one day rest between 3 matches.

I don't like to argue with girls like you. This is useless :lol: :wavey:
