a top 8 seed was scheduled to play her 2nd round match at a Grand Slam on a non-TV court?

When Sveta was defending USO champion she played her round 1 match on the 3rd biggest court. I remember that

I dont know but Aga's never been a top 8 seed before has she?

Theres probably never been one boring enough for this to happen, but she's managed it.

She's such a trailblazer :hearts:

Oh come on, Radwanska is nowhere close to being eighth in terms of star power on the WTA side, even if she's the 8th seed.

And? There are 7 TV courts and it's ridiculous to leave a top 8 seed on a non-TV court in such a situation. It just shows no respect to her. Zvonareva is getting same treatment as well, even though she's not ranked high nowadays. Matches like Schiavone-Ferguson, Date-Groth, Zheng-Pivovarova, Bammer-Wickmayer or Hantuchova-Govortsova will be played on TV courts.

It's probably some mistake which will be fixed already in next round. I have strong feeling that in 3rd round Aga will play against some even worse ranked player than Shvedova, but on Philippe Chatrier stadium (and on Eurosport again of course).

again its down to TV which TV company is willing to pay up

Italian and Aus TV for Schiavone vs Ferguson
Date will be for Japanese TV
Wickmayer for Belgians
Daniela for ALL

Hantuchova, Date and Wickmayer are all bigger names than Radwanska, and Schiavone and Zheng were both in better form than Radwanska coming into RG :shrug:

since when form decides about who's playing on which court :tape:

and the fact that doped Wickmayer is a bigger name than Aga who is in top10 for the 3rd consecutive season may be only due to doping scandal, I can't see any other reason for that ...

Yes, it is mainly due to the doping scandal - but she's a bigger name nonetheless. If you went the grounds of RG tomorrow and asked everyone whether they'd heard of Wickmayer or Radwanska, the chances are more would've heard of Wickmayer.

Wimbledon was even worse, putting world number 2 Jankovic on court 18, but I don´t blame them... but at least is televised there

It's her fault if she doesn't have a sponsor. What player would be stupid enough to skip the only major tour event held in her country? Even if she has a legit problem with the organizers it basically says "screw you" to her Polish fans.
