The bottom half of the women plays on Monday because the defending Women's Champion always opens up play on Centre Court on Tuesday. So whatever half she is in, plays on Tuesday.

ok thanks,forgot about the womens champ playing first on tuesday,I'm just kinda surprised they changed the whole schedule so fed could fill in for nadal,you never know what goes though the minds of those that organise wimbledon.

I like it best when my favorites are on the side that plays first. I prefer them to be ahead of the others, especially at Wimby with the unpredictable weather. So Serena, Sharapova, Azarenka, and Dementieva should all be in action Mnday, right?

Yeah, I'm thinking Hantuchova-Robson on Center, Maria and Serena on Court 1, Zvonareva on Court 2 (at least) cuz she's playing a Brit... and not sure about Dementieva and Azarenka.

Really? Didn't Maria and Jelena both play on Court 1 on opening Tuesday last year?

Aww poor Rafa, he'll probably never have the experience of opening up play on Centre Court, because I don't he'll ever win Wimbledon again :o :awww:
