I'll go with Sharapova v. Krajicek but only because I am almost sure they plan to play the Serena/Hantuchova 2nd round match at night if they both make it! :devil:

I think one of the americans (Serena, Venus or Lindsay)or Maria :tape:

last year they all (except Lindsay) were in the same half of the draw and they put Maria vs Eleni as the 1st night match :lol:

i hate the first-week USO night sessions as they are always boring blowouts. I never even watch.

Mirza vs Sprem would be a good choice but you know it ain't gonna happen.

I hope they will give a very interesting one as a main match. They should learn from Wimbledon which did not put Sharapova on the central court for a lot of time, cause she got too easy rivals there.

This time she plays against Misa, which may be more interesting. Also I think Venus vs. Marta may be interesting for them, as Venus is loved by most American tennis fans.

Other matches doesn't stand much chance.

Venus, Lindsay or Maria.

Serena on 2nd round :devil:

Nobody except for the Williams sisters, Davenport and Sharapova will be WTA night matches at the Open in the first week.

mr_burns
Aug 24th, 2006, 07:26 PM
Maria on the top half for sure

If bottom starts I would say Lindsay (highest american), Henin : can't imagine

WhatTheDeuce

Venus Lindsay or Maria.

Vaidisova-Rubin would also be an interesting choice.

i was wondering the same thing i dont think its been released yet so i guess well just have to wait but the top draw seems to have better first round matches so maybe to get a good opener the top half of the draw! if they do play the top half of the draw on monday, during the night session how many womens matches will be played on the arthur ashe stadium?

i definitely think momo has a legit chance.

if it's not momo, it'll either be sharapova or serena.

I dunno, that's why I mixed it up. I think the US Open generally starts the bottom half first...but I could be wrong (but that's a rarity! :tape: )

We should be picking one from each side of the draw, for the first two nights.

I think Sharapova v. Krajicek for top half and Vaidisova v. Rubin for the bottom half.

Hingis/Peng might get the nod over Sharapova/Krajicek. We shall see.
Venus will most surely get the night match on the bottom half. No stars on the bottom that draw ratings besides Davenport.

imo Matteck- hantuchova would be the best to show cos shes got style and personality and its the kind of match that the crowd cud get involved in.

i think they will choose Sharpie :mad:

Venus-Martha could be featured on Monday. Martha already lost in Forrest Hills on Tuesday. Venus did not play for a long time.
oh yeah. USTA always love Sharapova. They may feature it on Tuesday Night.

On Arthur Ashe there is one women's match and one men's match...generally.

Bottom half - Davenport

Venus Lindsay or Maria.

Vaidisova-Rubin would also be an interesting choice.
Either Monday or Tuesday night will be Agassi-Pavel on at 7 pm.
I can definitely see Vaidisova-Rubin second up after Agassi though.

Of course it will be Sharapova versus Krajicek.

I'd rather watched Golovin versus Harkleroad but neither are big enough names to get prime time.

Rubin vs Vaidisova would be on Armstrong probably

Mirza/sprem should not even be on the list!!Sania will be lucky to get a big court I think..And its better as it will mean less pressure..

Aug 25th, 2006, 04:14 AM
Yeah there's no way Sprem/Mirza will be a night match. Let's just leave it at that.
