IMO, if Venus plays like she did yesterday with a little better serving
she'll be fine. She's showed yesterday and in Istanbul that she can
stay in and dominate in those long rallies now.

Go Venus! :cool:

it is going to be very hot here the next few days starting from tomorrow night.
Wind will blow from straight south. Temperatures will be 30 degrees Celsius on Friday (= high eighties Fahrenheit)

Wow and Davenport is on court 1?? wtf.

maybe I should set the alarm... I'm excited she's up first. And I won't be tempted to cheat and go online to see the score. :lol:

That's ridiculous. Davenport is the 1 seed and so she should be on the Center Court at all times unless she requested that she plays on Court 1. Wait. Actually this isn't a bad thing. Davenport complains all the time about 11 am starts and cold weather. This is exactly where she wants to play. Midday and warm.

And there's also talk of how some courts are faster than the others. Hopefully one of those courts is Court 1.

Zuluaga SHOULD really test Venus if the conditions are slow. Should be a fun match.

Harloo, thats what Vee first up mean:tape: :p yes, she's on at 5 a.m. East coast time. I will be up bright and early- my day will hopefully start off well:)

Oops my bad..I got a little too excited when i saw Venus's name. I edited my post.:lol: :tape:

Yeah I'll agree with this..#1 seed shouldn't be on Court 1.

Heck I was a little huffy that Kim was on Court 1 for her first match :p

Go Vee.

You are the Queen, reclaim your place at the top. :)

It is not supposed to be cold tomorow, it is supposed to be 79 or 80 degrees and cloudy. So it will be warm, which is good for Vee. Well it want be as warm when Vee hits the court, it will probably be around 70 degrees.

I hope Venus' serve will rock and that she will hit a lot of forehand winners and charge the net like in her match with Marrero. Good luck Venus and finish it in straight sets :bounce:

I love Vee, but I don't think I'll be waking up at 4 a.m to see her in a second round, but my DVR is already set. ;)

Yes, it is a little strange that Venus gets center court while seeded #11.

But trust me is is pure economics. Love her ot hate her Venus will draw a big crowd.
RG schedulers are counting on this, while Elena D #4, or Lindsay #1 just might not draw as big a crowd in a second round match.

This is wrong from a seeding standpoint, but understandable from the economic view.
Also television will get better ratings with Venus playing.

Remember, it does NOT matter whether you want her to WIN or LOSE.... Only that you tune in.

I actually think That Lindsay should have been on the center court!
(Even though I am a Venus/Serena fan.)

Addendum:

Venus, since you are on center court, please win the match!!!

Also this is the juiciest 2nd round matchup.

I think who a top seed plays has a bearing on who makes centre court. Venus is playing Zuluaga, a renowned clay player and I think the organisers know it could be a good match. Venu's starpower is great, however I think it's more that out of the top seeds she could have a tougher match on paper.

Elena vs Mamic, Lindsay vs Peng and Kim vs Cervanova do not look like thrillers on paper but they could be.
