I bet Monfils vs Ljubicić will go into 5 and Stepanek vs Ferrer won't end soon either. They better put Sveta vs Wika or Kaia vs Petra on court #1, because if they don't they won't take to the court today. :o Unless they'll force them to play in the twilight as it was the case with Flavia & Venus.

I don't think the organizers should be moving one of the matches out to court 1 if the other match can't go out on court at around the same time. That way you could get that one of the matches is able to finish today while their opponent will only get to finish their match tomorrow. It's more fair to let them both go on court tomorrow.

Both matches could be started at the same time tonight!
Sveta - Azarenka: court 1
Kanepi - Kvitova: other court!

as they were hanging around all day today, i'll assume they'll be 2nd on courts tomorrow.

They go without a day's rest between matches all year, it won't kill them.

According to German ES, the matches will be played now. Sveta on Court 1, the other match on some outside court.

Right decision in my eyes. They should have played these two women matches before the last two men matches as those won't play tomorrow!

That's right in way. Maybe they had 8pm as deadline and wanted to see if at least one of the main court matches would end a little bit earlier :shrug:

still no one there
Sveta might have told them to F off

The questions are if the players want to play tonight... Nobody on C1 yet ;)

thats ridiculous
i guess they did that so they wont have to put Sveta on Chatrier tomorrow :rolleyes:

They dont want to finish the matches,it is clear.

Starting only at 20.15 is pretty useless unless the matches are over quick, they'll still have to go out on court tomorrow to finish the matches. But I guess they needed to notify the players and stuff, still pretty :silly: decision, to not put both matches out on court if they had empty courts they could have played on.

8.15 is bizarre since they have no lights - they went until 9.45 with the Venus match and it was almost pitch dark.

Plus it's not exactly warm and bright in Paris today.

Poor Petra and Kaia - you're in the 4th round of a slam and they stick you out late in the evening on a court in the arse end of nowhere with no cameras and no audience and this is the biggest match of your career so far, probably.

Ugh.

Wimbledon organisation is the most fair of all the slams

I guess they didn't want to have Kanepi And Kvitova on Lenglen either. Court 6:rolleyes: It would have never happened for the men or in others slams.

When they start with 2 women matches it finishes on time!

They should end with men on all courts.

eurosport player really fucks me off! no mixed, no doubz, no juniors, and now no vika!!!

Jun 2nd, 2008, 07:25 PM
the boring stuff is over and Sveta vs Vika should be on soon :D

EDIT: Commentator just said that was the last match of the day.

:mad::armed:Why isn't ES player showing coverage of court 1 anymore

TheBoiledEgg
Jun 2nd, 2008, 07:28 PM
ES Player is crap in that sense

at least Wimbledon coverage on Wimbledon Media Zone they show EVERYTHING

Kuti Kis&Monica
Jun 2nd, 2008, 07:29 PM
Can't believe that my All courts coverage (FranceTelevisions) is not showing Kaia's match :mad: Court 6 has cameras. Journalists just don't bother to show up for this match.

So no livestream for Sveta's match ?

Dexter
Jun 2nd, 2008, 07:36 PM
The scheduling at this year's RG has been to put it kindly questionable.

Nothing beats the scheduling the year Roddick won at the USO though. NOTHING. :fiery:

I'd been wondering about these matches! I would have liked to have seen some of Kuznetsova/Azarenka, and I'd really like to see Kvitova play... (Kaia too! I did see Kaia play somewhere a few years ago for a 'very' little while... Oh, and I missed Kaia's name in the "Favourite name" thread, grr... :) )

Poor Petra and Kaia - you're in the 4th round of a slam and they stick you out late in the evening on a court in the arse end of nowhere with no cameras and no audience and this is the biggest match of your career so far, probably.

Ugh.

That's made me feel quite sad... :(
