Justine played her R1 on Chatrier, and is going to play her R2 tomorrow.

Let's suppose her theorical draw after R2 :
- Sharapova => Chatrier certainly
- Stosur => too
- Serena => obviously
- JH => semis...
- final...

I wanted to know if it already happened that a player played 7 matchs in a row on the same court ??? Federer perhaps? I find it amazing, I was :confused: when I found out Justine's scheduling court tomorrow !

Anyways perhaps Justine will not even reach R3 or something, but I wanted to know..

Oh Sharapova and Ivanovic on court 1 :eek: Especially Ivanovic who is a former champion, beautiful, and plays a tougher opponent than Justine with Zakopalova.... I can't guess why this schedule :confused:

your guess?

You can't guess?????? They named an allee at RG after this young lady a year after she retired.

She's won 4 rg, 3 consecutively, before she retired, and now she's back.

And I think they thought there wasn't enough folks in the chatrier in her first rd match and she deserves a better reception.

I was surprised this one is on Chatrier. Maybe Stosur wont be, otherwise, 7 for 7 on Chatrier, if Justine wins 6 matches.

there weren't enough people, because they didn't want to watch her against Pironokova:help::shrug:
Neither they want to see her against Zakopalova, but well...:tape:

I don´t think her match against Stosur will be on Chatrier, it will be on Lenglen... but all of the other ones will be on PC, and I don´t think that ever happened...

But it´s absurd to put Ana, glamour girl and former champ, on court 1, she should play Lenglen at least

There is nothing wrong with Justine getting this treatment, but ugh at the scheduling in general. Federer must be the most preferential schedule recipient at all of the slams...ever!

but it is not that special, especially with amelie, cornet not in the draw...the french crowd favourites

Well, I'm sure ES will show her match tomorrow (and not the irrelevant matches like Gabashvili vs. Zemlja that you probably want to see), so enjoy it ;)

rg has always stated that they see the show courts (chatrier and sl, at least) as equal in terms of the level (fame, skill, whatnot) of the day's players. at least that's a valid excuse for putting serena/kuzzy on lenglen last year

I agree but it's not roland garos's fault that it respects its champions. Wimbledon should do the same and stop showing sexism

Henin is loved by the French, no surprise she is on Philippe Chatrier.

I think the scheduling this year is disgusting. Like 2 mens matches before a womens? That's not cool. Mens matches should always be last, I don't feel like skipping through hours of tennis to find a womens match :o

The sad thing is, I bet he would actually complain and make a big deal about it if he were relegated to Hisense in Melbourne, Suzanne Lenglen here, or Court 1 at Wimbledon. :rolleyes:

Regarding Justine, if she plays Sharapova 3rd round, I have a feeling it'll be on Lenglen. When they played in 2005 when both Sharapova AND Justine were at their "peak", their QF match was played on Lenglen. It'll probably be the same here.

I doubt it. Everyone's been talking about this part of the draw, and if they meet in the 3R, I can't imagine not capitalizing on the buzz by making it the marquee match on PC.

Serena and Justine, if they play, will be on Lenglen.

It's the slower of the 2 courts, and Serena seems to always have her QF matches on Lenglen.

Also, being francophone Justine is pretty much considered as one of their own. Justine, from her side, considers Paris as her second home since it's so close to home. That's why most of the visitors from abroad are Belgian. Belgium has, outside of France, the largest fan base at RG. ;)

Mystery of the highest order that is, how on earth have the #22 seed been scheduled to play on Chatrier today.

Anyways nice jinx by the OP. Even if she plays all her matches on Chatrier, their total amount won't be 7.:)

I hope so ! I have tickets (Saturday and Sunday) for Lenglen, I would be crazy if Sharapova-Justine was on Lenglen :hearts: We will see.

BTW on what court was played Serena-Henin QF 2007 ? I didn't recall that Kuzzie played Serena on Lenglen last year :eek: pretty shocking.

Actually, to explain that Murray-Gasquet schedule (which is weird, true), I thought it was fairer for those who bought Lenglen, only at the beginning of the tournament.

Puhlease, RG is doing Ivanovic a favor by not putting her on a court where thousands of ppl can witness her lose and see how far she's fallen from her 2 week period at the top

No because I said she could not even reach the R3. She is going to play her easiest match of the tournament, and it's on Chatrier. That's why I was surprised. Nothing more. Actually I hope to be wrong (about Chatrier schedule).

We're fucking sick of Hewitt as well, but they still put him on. :lol: Every slam schedule shows bias and it's just kinda expected that there will be some stupid decisions at this point.

debby
May 27th, 2010, 09:30 AM
LMAO I think Roland Garros is the least biaised of all Slams :lol:

First Murray-Gasquet (Gasquet asked to play on Tuesday, but it was impossible as he was in top half who had to play before Tuesday)

Now this :


"Frankly, I was a bit disappointed because I was playing on a Sunday," Tsonga said. "I had asked not to play on a Sunday, absolutely, because I had practiced in such a way that I thought I wanted to play on a Monday or Tuesday, to be totally fit. But they imposed it on me."

Tsonga said the organizers should have shown more respect considering his ranking and nationality.

"Today, we're in France. I'm French. I'm the French No. 1. I would have thought it was legitimate for me to be listened to," Tsonga said.

"If you look at (Andy) Murray, if he decides on a day or a time schedule at Wimbledon, nobody is going to impose anything on him. For (Roger) Federer, in his country it's the same. And in the U.S., I suppose it's the same thing for the best American players. I think that Lleyton (Hewitt) probably plays in the sun during the Australian Open because he loves the sun and other opponents don't like the sun."

...

"If I had lost on Sunday because I was not feeling good, then many people would have been disappointed. This would have been a bit silly, I think," Tsonga said. "But it wasn't the case, so I'm here, and I'm fit. I'm ready to play. This story will continue, and that's the end of the story."

...

Well I think he has a valid point, though it does come across as a bit "diva-ish". Although every player must be ready to play at any time, I would have thought the French open organizers could have pulled some strings to help their national players.

No, the ATP and WTA matches should be evenly spread out. Two mens matches before womens matches once in a while is absolutely fine.

Perhaps, but someone has to go last and the schedulers don't seem to care about the players. It was just Serena's luck that she got the last spot today I guess.

Besides, the heavy post-rain clay is only an advantage for Serena.

I was thinking the same. Organizers have been showing no respect for Serena over the years. It's 1 PM in Paris and it's still raining. There's a chance that she won't be able to finish the match. They are aware that she's in the doubles' draw and is seeded 1, aren't they ? Totally biased, compared to Henin.

But come on Serena is a pass winner her as well i just think she should have went before the 2 french girls playing before her.

I am surprised that Serena and Nadal have been scheduled last. But apparently Nadal's opponent played doubles quite late yesterday so that could be why he's last. But the way the rain is going A LOT of matches won't get played today which will back everything up.

Now that's a good idea. Even better, why not have just mens and womens days. They could easily complete 6 matches in the time of 2 mens matches. It would also aid those that hate watching mens :lol:

No, the ATP and WTA matches should be evenly spread out. Two mens matches before womens matches once in a while is absolutely fine.

Yes, but the way they are doing it now, is really a disaster.

You realize they scheduled BEFORE the rain came? :lol:

The forecast for Central Europe is pretty much rain till monday with 60% chance of rain, so they kinda knew it could happen :shrug:
