Ju is on Court 1, nice! :)
Especially after all the 'predictions' how she'll be on Court 2, heh.

Hope there will be no (or just little rain) and that they will finish schedule as planned :bounce:

Andy.
Jun 24th, 2007, 12:44 PM
WOW I really thought they would have put Serena or Justine on Centre not Jelena. I understand she is playing a brit, but she isnt playing a brit who is a house hold name and Jelena isnt a world wide star yet herself.

but she should play the first match on CC on Day 2......:o
she lost her first match to eleni on Court 1 in 2005 :tape:
hope this time it will be alright :rolleyes:

Ok...Martina first. :) But weather? :unsure:
I'll have to wait another 1440 minutes to see Yung-Jan and Maria. :crying2:

Boring schedule for me as I'll only get to see matches from the Centre Court and Court #1. I would prefer to see matches from Court #2.

Naomi on Court 2 :bounce: :devil:

Thank god Katie isn't TBA (althought it doesn't matter if there's lots of rain). :tape: :scared: :help:

true. court 13 gets televised quite a bit.

Jun 24th, 2007, 01:49 PM
Martina on court 2! :eek: I'm a bit scared...and scarred actually. Come on Martina, break the tradition!

Well, If I was there on the 1st day I would definitely be camping out on Court 2 for Martina and Serena. While I am not complaining about the schedule, I would have preferred to see these 2 former Wimbledon champs on CC and Court 1, but Court 2 curse be damned!!!

two comments:

first, they call court 2 the graveyard of champions. watch out, because both hingis and serena are playing there. ouch!

second, why'd they put chakvetadze as the last match on [B]court 18?[B]What does she have to do to get some respect?

Tennisaddict
Jun 24th, 2007, 02:08 PM
:lol: at the organizers putting Henman on Centre court. They probably know that he will lose anyway :tape:
When is he going to retire? I hope they will show the Serena match on BBC.

Well, it is a pretty good court, but I agree. There should be at least 1 more women's match on CC or Court 1, moving Serena or Martina. Anna should at least be on Court 2 IMHO. It's nice that Wimbledon is giving equal prize money, but the court scheduling is still sexist. :smash:

glad to see Tammy on court 18, at least i can see her playing LIVE!

Seriously Serena isin't losing to Dominguez Lino on grass, even if they played in the car park :lol:

Still have to get used to Jankovic getting centre court status..I know she is number 3 now...and well figures, she is playing a brit which I didn't notice in the beginning. But still first day of the most prestigious slam without a slam to her name...I have to get used to it. :lol:

And Martina :rocker2: Dunno if I can see her but hopefully...

It still bugs me how Centre and No. 1 Courts have two mens and only one womens match. At least give Court 1 the two womens/one mens match ratio, or at least start the session at Noon, and give it 4 matches (two men/two women).

Hmmm, I wonder who is house hold name in british women's tennis :tape:

But, kudos to organizers for giving Jelena such an honour of opening women's part of the draw on Center court. Isn't it fair to put a player on center court if she's NO.3 in the world and has won one grass court title and was runner up on other pre-Wimby tournament?! :angel:

Oh well, I'll be watching Martina at that time anyway.

you forgot to mention court 19, where lucie is playing ondraskova, and vesnina is playing poutchkova.

also, dani/pavlyuchenkova and srebotnik/baltacha have yet to be scheduled.

Arrogant. Disrespectful. Pathetic. :rolleyes:
