Go Serena!

Speaking of schedule: let's compare:

Both Hewitt and Mauresmo are former #1's with 2 slams including 1 Wimbledon win each.

Both are ranked in the 20's at the moment, and neither has a had a good year.

For his first match, Hewitt is on court 1. For her first match, Mauresmo is on court 11.

Both matches promise to be competitive. Wouldn't that be sad if Mauresmo were to lose her first match on court 11?

Em, don't you know that players have forums for this kind of stuff!!!!????

Oh no wait, sorry, excuse me. I came into this thread and I didn't have to since the title makes it clear it is player orientated. Sometimes I just can't help myself from whining.

So all I can say is GO SERENA! Knock em dead (literally if needs be)!

Well it's the graveyard of champions and I'm pretty sure it is usually Wimbledon champions so they should be fine. They just better not stick Venus or Serena on court number 2 at any stage of the tournament!!! I'd be willing to let them stick Sharapova or Mauresmo on court 2. That I could live with...just because I'm curious to see if the hex holds up! ;)

I agree. However, Wimbledon unfortunately have always had the policy of scheduling three matches on the two show courts, with two of them always being men's matches. If Momo is last on Court 11 then there may be a chance that she will get moved to the show courts if the play finishes early.

This year will be the last year of court 2 I've heard. It will be demolished after this year's championships.

At least it will be far from the cameras... Or is that court televised too? :o:bolt:

And the strange thing is is that Mauresmo is likable and Hewitt isn't.

Because it's court 11! IMO it's not good enough for a former champ. Couldn't they have put her on court 3 or some other show court?

How many other former champs are disrespected like this?

yeah i heard that too. i heard they had built the new court 2 where court 13 was last year. hence why there is no mention of court 13 in the order of play :shrug:

BTW, does anyone in the UK know what courts they'll be showing on Freeview? The BBC channels on my Sky Digital don't work (I get a frozen screen).

Wimbledon scheduling has always left a lot to be desired.

It very much favours the men, hence the reason there are always 2 mens matches each day on CC and No1 Court.

I don't see why they can't start play at 1100 or 1200 and have 2 MS and 2 WS on each court.

Tradition no doubt :rolleyes:
