They are idiots

Maria Sharapova vrs Eleni Dementieva should have been on RLA. Both are in hot form, should be a good match

yeah, but Ferrero nalbandian and Serena Vaidisova has a chance at being a good match... they cant put all the top matches on RLA... Voldafone paid for their seats too ya know....

But they don't usually show matches on the Vodafone Arena... I REALLY want to watch the Sharapova vs. Dementieva.

great OOP

if it wasnt for rain today i'm sure Masha vs Lena would have been on Rod Laver Arena as well, they just got to get the mens out of the way 1st.
cant complain cos i'll get to see it anyway.

they showed the 12-10 match that was almost the debaucle of Jankovics AO... they show them....just depends on whose on them....chances are it'll get on before serena since shes after two mens matches so you should at least get to see the first set...

Casey vs Jelena is the night match because Casey is Australian and Jankovic is the third seed. Sounds reasonable *shrugs*

Sharapova vs. Dementieva should trump Gasquet vs. Tsonga though. It should be on RLA.

Jan 19th, 2008, 08:28 AM
I suppose I'll plan on watching Serena at about... 11:30-12:00 EST, at the earliest.

Fed match still going on and its 8:10pm
add 30 mins or so

then 40 mins in between sessions for new ticket holders
and its 9:30pm

Hewitt's match will NOT START after 11pm

Persistant rain forecast, to continue all night - right into next morning.

At least they are still playing ... on TWO courts.

Nalbandian and JEKA tomorrow on Rod Laver :yeah:

Hmm probably because Dellacqua is playing and they know it will be a full crowd. Dont ask such obvious bloody questions!

At this point Hewitt might get moved to Voldafone if that one goes to straight sets

Thank you for being the 5th person to reply to that....I didnt look at her opponent when i asked the question

30-15(federer is serving for the match)...i really wanted Janko to win!! but whatever gets Venus on the courts fastest is OK! with me!

Gasquet and Tsonga on RLA? Neither of these guys are even headliners. The Sharapova-Lena match should should have easily trumped those two.

I guess tournament organizers expect Maria to dismiss Elena in 60 minutes, while Tsonga - Gasquet is expected to be an amazing 5 set thriller ;)

Gasquet Tsonga is worthy for Court 25 . French pussies

The only thing I'd rather swap is Sharapova with Gasquet's match, but I'll probably still see that one on ESPN...
