Yep. So they might have to revise the draw.

But they are not dumb. Makarova and Groenefeld are both scheduled to play their quallies not before 5pm.

Makarova and Groenefeld play at 11:15am in Estoril. Estoril to Madrid is a little over 300 miles.

They do this just to have them on the OOP. The loser of their Estoril SF will have her match moved to the next day and will play two Q matches in one day. The winner will withdraw and be replaced by an alternate in Madrid.

I has been thinking about post in the Entry List topic and can't remember any player playing in two places (2 cities) in the same day, but I can have missed any tourny? (From since 1999 where I start to care about tennis...)

I don't expect them to play in two cities on the same day.
But I do recall once noticing, offhandedly, "Hey, she played at city X this morning, and she hustled over and is now playing at city Y this afternoon." I think it might have been Nuria, but I don't recall for sure.
Unfortunately, I did not make a note of it, because several folks seem to think it is impossible.

Obviously, the usual thing is for them to play 2 quallies in one day.

Jorn, do you happen to know who pulled out of the MD to make room for Niculescu?

I may be mistaken but I remember last year in Dubai Agi Radwanska beat Bally in qualies (6-1 6-2) - Agi had lost to Sharapova earlier that the day in the Semis in Doha (3-6 4-6)... I think the date was 23rd Feb (Saturday). Not much distance between these places I guess.... Only time I've ever seen someone play twice in different cities in one day....

No Radwanska played two matches on Sunday then ;)
The loser of the SF will most likely play her match(es) on Saturday, too ;) Unless she really plays two matches in two different cities in one day ;)
The sole example I can think of is when Surbiton finalists Schultz-McCarthy and Morita both played their final and then went to Birmingham to play their first Q match ;)

Makarova,Groenefeld,Hsieh & Diatchenko all have to play one match tomorrow and one will be replaced by another alt for sure ;)

If Su-Wei Hsieh loses tomorrow in Rome doubles, will they move her match to Sunday? (like u said with Makarova's match...)

Diatchenko is already an alternate... :unsure: :lol: So will they get an alternate for an alternate? :rolls: Her match against Dushevina is a night match though... :shrug:

Brenda Schultz-McCarthy won the Surbiton title in the morning and then went to Birmingham in the afternoon to play in the qualifying two years ago.

At the ITF level, I remember that in summer 2006 Lina Stanciute played a doubles final at 50K Petange, Luxembourg, in the morning, while in the afternoon she was already playing singles qualies at 50K Baden-Baden, Germany. Too bad she lost both matches on that day.

Don't remember any such example at the WTA level, though.
