OK... they have real problem because 5 of 6 "real contenders" from womens tournament is in same part of draw. But what they doing? They simple put Nadal and Djokovic to play with Federer's part of draw, and that new ATP superfield with all 3 ATP "real contenders" they combine with WTA superfield. According to all experts and bookmakers we have 9 real contenders to won USO2007 (with "one digit" odds for example) and today wee see only Masha and tommorow we will see rest (8 of 9 - Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Henin, Serena, Venus, Jelena and Ana). Todays is 4th day of tournament 1st week, but wee already see doubles matches (1st round) at Arthur Ashe stadium and Armstrong!?!?! And tommorow even WTA#3 must play at Grandstad because Ashe and Armstrong shedule is full with other superstars and showdowns... And in saturday we again will have "only Masha" one girl show.

I know that some posters here will claim that for USTA is Sharapova, Blake and Roddick on one side is equal with Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Henin, Serena, Venus, Jelena and Ana on other side, but i dont think that this is explanation of this shedule scandal. I dont see any logic here and this is simple stupid without any "conspiracy"... Just stupid...

I am sick to death of the 5 to 6 contenders for this title. That is pure BS :mad:. Jankovic and Ivanovic are not contenders. There good but you need to have won more to 4 tournments to be considered a contender.

Henin, Venus, Serena and Maria are the only ones who can win this. Well after the first couple of rounds not Serena:help:

That's the luck of the draw. But I hate how Sharapova has been at night twice, her matches were easy and boring, Hingis or Sveta should have been night.

It was a joke.:wavey: Oh but here is a little stat that is interesting. Serena has not been past tha OF's of a Slam since Wimbledon 04; except for the Two AO that she won.

yeah, 1 day i'm excited to watch the matchups... the next day there are only a few matches i want to see. The day that contains Fed, Serena, Venus, justine, Jelena, Ivan is just more interesting

Ivanovic and Jankovic are threats to beat the favorites and go far. But still according to you 3 of 4 top contenders are still on the top half.
GO VENUS!:D

I think they are a buch of fools sitting out there making the schedule. Even a tennis starter will know how to schedule I guess :sarcastic: . And see the night matches of Maria Sharapova are so boring. I really hate these guys. Aristocratic fools :fiery: coz of them tennis is loosing its popularity in US.

i actually think Serena played better in her early rounds at the AO than she has so far at the USO. Actually I think she played worse in her 2nd round then seh did in her first round. But Serena hopefully will improve a lot by tomorrow.

You'll not say a word if Jelena and Ana were playing everytime on Ashe.

Doubles is interesting. That's tennis.
Putting all Doubles on court 16 would be dumb.
BTW Jelena MAY BE mobed to Ashe tomorrow.

Like the Bryans were today.

JJ playing here SF last year and Ana at last 2 slams reach one final and one semis... but even with yours criteria (if we not count JJ and Ana) this shedule is extremly stupid because on one side USTA put Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Henin, Serena and Venus to play at same days and at other only Sharapova :eek: :tape: :help: :fiery: .

Like the Bryans were today.I nothing complain because Jelena is not playing at Eshe tommorow. Problem what i notice is fact that 8 of 9 "real USO-07 contenders" played in same days and only one in other days when they must fill out even at two biggest courts program with doubles matches. I dont have nothing against doubles but it's 1st round!? Bryans played today at Ashe against unseeded opponents and only reason for that is because no enough singles stars today (and see tommorow shedule to see difference).

They have to schedule them like that because of the draw.

Well the matches that they have put on both Armstrong and Grandstand are awful for the public. Novak's matched have both been scheduled for Armstrong and Ivanovic and Jankovic have been on Armstrong also when these players are Ashe worthy. Not to mention when big names play in Armsrong/Grandstand it makes my job as a crowd controller alot harder lmao. I hate how fast the hallways fill up with ppl. Its becoming a bit much with the irrate ppl. But yea some the ppl need to moved like Hingis should not have been an Ashe match neither should Venus for that matter. IMHO if you arent a top 5 seed then you should play on the outer courts. Shyt Bartoli first match was on Grandstand and her next was one Court 10 and shes the tenth seed while Martina the 16th seed is on Ashe??? I dont agree at all

i recall serena beating better opponents in her first two rounds at australlia and with less difficulty. santangelo was actually a seed and had some fire power. all her 1st uso opponents have done has kept the ball in play and wait for the errors. and every tournament that serena come backs from an injury,layoff or plays badly in the begging is not going to turn outlikeAo 2007. Do you remember WIM05,USO05,AO06,USO06,FO07

Hingis, like Venus, is a former champion, though. Both are, by far, much more popular than Bartoli.

i agree jankovic saves her worst for the latter stages of a slam and ivanovic is simply not ready and her movement s a factor against players like henin and venus.

serena has been at night twice and so will venus after her match tonight. why is it that people only focus on maria. do u really think kuznetsova will draw crowds and with her shay form she is capable of some awful tennis (golovin match in canada). hingis is not a contender so why waste a night match on her. most of the top ten players have blow out victories in the first 2 or 3 rounds unless they are paying poorly. i havent seen the kuzzy-pin match but im sure kuzzy was spraying the ball. i would rather see a double bagel than see a top 5 player lose a set to camille pin.

It is not the USTA's fault. It is the draw. And Federer is not playing tomorrow. Nadal and Djokovic are on the same side, of course they will play the same day. And as for Jelena and Ana, when you have Venus and Serena at the AMERICAN Slam, obviously it will be tough to get on Ashe, let alone at night. Let's get real. Too many names on one side and no names on the other. It happens.

Actually, I have really been enjoying the matches in the bottom half of the draw. It might have been a slight mistake to put Maria on 2 nights already because of her opponents poor play, but Casey could have come out and played the match of her life tonight. There is no way of predicting that.

Maybe Martina requested no night matches after last year's disaster, LOL!

It is not the USTA's fault. It is the draw. And Federer is not playing tomorrow.I just notice that they finaly separate Federer of Nadal and Djokovic (in Wednesday they all 3 played toghether and yesterday nobody) so disbalance in shedule today and tommorow dont be so tragic like in last two days (Federer will help Maria) because 2/7 is not perfect but much better than 1/8 "real contenders" relation (playing by days).

After "asimetric" WTA part of draw they place Federer (TOP ATP half), Nadal and Djokovic (bottom ATP half) to play in same days - but instead in that days when in WTA played only Masha, they put all three ATP biggest title contenders to play in same time with WTA strongest part (with Justine, Serena, Venus, Jelena and Ana). Thank's god it not be whole 1st week and they atleast separate Roger and after saturday he will play in same days with Maria, not with all other contenders.

Janko and Ana are real contenders this year just like Henin, Venus and Serena. Get over it :rolleyes:

I agree that Sveta would not draw in crowds but I'm pretty sure Hingis would.
