Why hasnt vee been put on Phillipe Chatrier, ok Schnyder versus Krajicek has a possibility of an upset but were talkin about a 5 time slam winner and former finalist of the tournament and she would definatley bring in more ticket sales and more people would go and see the match no matter who she plays, why did the organisers do this does any1 have any ideas

Perhaps they want Venus to bring more ticket sales to Suzanne Lenglen as Phillipe Chatrier already has Clijsters, Nadal and some French players.

They divide up the show courts. Venus will play Chartier later on and the others will play Lenglen later on.

Besides, I think with Clijsters and Nadal and the French players, they aren't worried about ticket sales on Chartier.

I actually don't care where she is scheduled on, it's a showcourt and hopefully we will get coverage when Venus plays and as long she keeps winning, I really don't mind:p

ok Schnyder versus Krajicek has a possibility of an upset

you answered your own question. even if schnyder isnt upset, i'd think a schynder-krajicek match seems to be more intriguing than venus-bammer

May 28th, 2006, 04:16 PM
Along with what others have said, I'd still put Patty-Krajicek on Centre over Venus' match. It's just a more interesting match. Don't get me wrong I love Vee, but fact is fact.

Interesting in the sense that the match will be closer! However, if you are concerned about selling tickets, VENUS is the one to put on Center Court :angel:

They want people everywhere, They don't want Chatrier to be full and Lenglen to be empty.

And Venus can't be on Chatrier every matches she play ;) She will be back on Central soon :p

you think the french crowd wants to see the same players on the same court every round? and last i checked, schnyder's seeded higher than venus

Vee has been on show courts throughout her entire life. As I said before, more people would want to see a good match than a complete blowout. Not to mention, Roland Garros's spectators appreciate their tennis, which supports my above statement.

True, but there is more of a chance of that being a good match than Venus's match. I think Misa will really push Patty. She might even beat her if she plays her cards right.

Hey moron - I'm a FEMALE. And no I did not "imply" that - I SAID it. They are playing in Europe - the put the 2 Europeans on the top court. If it were America, they would have put the Americans on the top court. So what? In Australia they usually give the Aussies top court. Nothing unusual about that.

And as others have said: Venus will get Chartier if she keeps winning - probably next round. so :shrug: there really should be no problem.

I admit seeding seems to be an arbitrary basis for allocating courts. Usually seeding indicates how popular the player will be. Thus it is not a maxim its just a general rule of thumb to go by.

As to your suggestion about Venus losing on Lenglen. Give me a break. Like they are going to allocate courts on the basis that Lenglen's speed isn't to Venus' liking and therefore she will lose :rolleyes:

As fas as Venus' match tomorrow...It's a fantastic court...she is probably quite pleased...Maria was on it today...either Nadia or Martina will be on it on Tuesday (most likely :) ) so I think that nobody should be complaining, it's an honor to play on Lenglen>P

Perhaps they want Venus to bring more ticket sales to Suzanne Lenglen as Phillipe Chatrier already has Clijsters, Nadal and some French players.

as Nadal. If they are playing at the same time You know they

it shouldn't really matter to you though if she is your fave.justseeing her play on any court should be a privelage.schnyder should be on center court because her match will actually be decent and could go the distance but patty will win,but venus should roll pretty easily,i can see where it would help with tickets and stuff but i would kill to watch daniela play anywhere,and i wouldn't care if she was on court 11.

So in other words, you'd rather see your favorite player play on clay than a player you clearly loathe, who is actually better on the surface than your favorite player...."ugly forehand" and all. Makes sense, but don't try to make it seem like Venus is such a horrible player on clay...because she actually tries on the surface and has had success.

god get over it already. Every slam we get these pointless threads trying to make something out of nothing. Sharapova was on SL last night, very few players will play every match on PC - i would suggest maybe even none.

Also remember there are usually about 100 people on the PC and SL for match one so it's really not an insult to be on later on SL.

Also add that Patty vs Krajicek is likely to be a much better match.

Although Venus doesn't have a great record against Austrians at RG - Schwartz, Schett anyone?

So now it's you peddling excuses, Dementieva was a newcomer, was she? Well from 2000 onwards I consider Elena to be a top player, having reached the USO, Olympics and YEC semis...

And since then their record is 6-5, really 6-4 because one of those wins was a retirement, in actual fact, it's really 6-3 since Davenport had no business on the court in the RG '04 4R and only continued because she didn't want to retire two years running (see I can use excuses too ;) )

And who has actually been to the final round of RG?

And who leads the h2h on clay when the two meet?

Patty is isn't better, she isn't better on clay, but still I don't see a problem with her being on Centre Court. Venus can be in the alley as long as she keeps the ball in and gets herself to the next round! :lol:

and you know that how exactly?!

So, if Venus stops Patty from using all her variety and court use, where does that leave Patty? Beaten!

In Rome, all Patty's variety did not help her against Venus who was just coming back after a long layoff and who was completely dominating in the first set. Even when Patty began to find her game, Venus came back and won the third set decisively.

Until Patty beats Venus at least once, all the other stats show that Venus is better than Patty on clay.

In Rome, all Patty's variety did not help her against Venus who was just coming back after a long layoff and who was completely dominating in the first set. Even when Patty began to find her game, Venus came back and won the third set decisively.

Until Patty beats Venus at least once, all the other stats show that Venus is better than Patty on clay.
I thought it was Hingis the one who was coming from a "LONG" layoff. :rolleyes:
BTW the Schnyder-Krajicek match features higher ranked players respectively than the Venus-Bammer match, enough said.
I think no one can argue who the best player from the group is, but the decision is understanable 100%. Plus its not like Venus was thrown to court 17 :lol:
So once again Lenavee is creating another pointless and ridiculous thread. :wavey:

Yes, it's good for Venus to play on a big court, comparing with the courts 7, 11....

She will play in last match today....

I saw her yesterday practising on the court 18, and what a serve!!!!!!!!!! She's really very very powerful right now! In good form! Ve'!!

Now we know why Venus was put on SL. The organizers wanted to watch a horrible match without any highlights on Centre Court. :rolleyes:

Horrible match for you. When a player manages to hit 9 aces (3 of them in a row) plus 28 W to only 18 UE, I fail to see where the "horrible" is. Patty has just given a lesson in clay-court playing (what lovely dropshots). If you don't like it or don't understand it, that's your problem.

Someone told here that this was a possible upset match.
So 1-6 2-6 is the response to that.

And because it wasn't an upset, the match is "horrible"?
Patty was just too good today. In the 1st set, she was awesome. No way Krajicek had a chance today.

You better learn what clay tennis is. Patty has made a lesson of it today, so i don'r see the problem :(

Lot of top players could learn form Patty how a player must play on clay. If you don't see that, maybe the problem us that you don't like tennis or you don't understand what good tennis is.

Maybe you only aprreciate big shots, but tennis i smuch more. What a pitty for you.

Go Patty!!!!!!!!!! :kiss:

Having a tight match does not means the quality is the greatest, aka Warsaw Hingis vs Venus.
Possible upset of a top ten player of course, provided that Patty had not come with this great play, like she did today.
She little girl got a lesson on clay. Nothing less than that.

I'm just saying that Krajicek wasn't playing well at all. Sure, Schnyder was getting the ball in play and went for some shots here and there. But we are discussing why Venus wasn't put on the Centre Court.
You know, Venus always atracts a lot of people - more then Schnyder IMO, even if it is a bad match. And that's why I am confused they didn't put Vee on Centre Court.

None of your "points" has anything to do with my post, except one.

My response to that is: two matches in eight months seems like a long time off the courts to me, whether you compare it to hingis or not (which by the way is irrelevant?!!!) silly wabbit.

Get over it, I'm sure Venus dosen't give a shit where shes playing, so I dont really see why you would even care.

The short answer to this question is Patty is seeded 7th, Venus is seeded 11th.

Kim is seeded 2nd, Nathalie Dechy is seeded 21.

Kim and Patty should play on center court.

Why hasnt vee been put on Phillipe Chatrier, ok Schnyder versus Krajicek has a possibility of an upset but were talkin about a 5 time slam winner and former finalist of the tournament and she would definatley bring in more ticket sales and more people would go and see the match no matter who she plays, why did the organisers do this does any1 have any ideas

Today's Venus-Laine match conclusively proved that Venus does not sell tickets and bring more people to see her matches regardless of who she plays. The stadium was sold out and full for the match prior to Venus coming on court for her match. By the time the match started there were about six people in the stadium, including Richard!

I was stunned by how fast the crowd cleared out. It was shocking! The FFT had it right, Venus does not draw the French fans.

I think a lot of people cleared the stadium as they likely thought they were not going to see a full match as it was already after 8pm. The match before hers had Gasquet and naturally would be full. Once he lost, it was time for the French to go eat :)
