Is this what she has been reduced to? :help:

She played on Court No.1 yesterday. Does this mean goodbye to Centercourtpova? :tape:

You need a fact checker, my friend. Maria started this match on court #2. It's my understanding that matches are always finished on the same court they started on.

They had to squeeze in as many matches as possible due to the rain... She was put on court 2. Once you start on a court, you finish on that court.

This is not a big deal. It's not like she is the defending champ or something. Then I would be wondering why she was on court 2.

FTR, the real bombshell of today's OOP is Fed on Lenglen. Hee!

About time too. Federer always gets what he wants, maybe this is the 1st time ever he's displeased with his schedule?

You know he is arguably the best male tennis player of all time right? :rolleyes:

Who says he asks to be on centre court all the time, which is where he obviously deserves to be.

Your almost always gonna have quality tennis from him.

As for sharapova on court 2, it's not really a bombshell, especially with the crazy french scheduling.

Match started there. The only match i can remember that was moved to another court after starting was Maria/ Venus Wimbledon 2007.....but i think they only played like 4 points before the rain came...

:help: how do you know he asks for it? He is the best player, always providing best entertainment = he gets to play on court where most people will see him. EEEASY YES?

And with the madness of RG anyone could end up on any court, antymie. Even in the middle of the night :)

Actually, every year Federer puts in requests to play on Lenglen.

As for the Sharapova thing, I don't think it's surprising at all. She's not top 10, the Parisian crowd dislike her, and it's her worst surface.

One of those is fact and the other two are very much subjective at the moment.

Well, Have you seen how many matches have to be played tomorrow? :o
They are squeezing as much people as they can on all different courts.

It is her worst surface. What would you suggest her worst surface would be then - grass? Hard? Indoor? Absolutely not.
And the Parisian crowd never really support her, because (a) the shrieking (like Nadal and Serena, whom the crowd also generally do not support), (b) she's not French (c) she doesn't speak French.

She played Lenglen in the first round and was supposed to play on Court 1. But then because of the rain delay they had to move her to Court 2.

This is just the continuation of the decline of Sharapova's stature, in the eyes of WTA big money promoters anyway. It all began after the season of Camilla Belle. Now there's a shadow casting on the minds of promoters and WTA high priests that Maria may in fact be a butch lesbian. They no longer put her front and center for promotion because who knows Maria might come out someday. The fact that Sharapova have not done well on court gave them an easy excuse to ignore her. Remember that Kournikova was always front and center even when she was not winning matches. So you see the difference.

I used to dislike Sharapova but, after the Camilla episode, after realizing the agony she might have been enduring of not being able to be herself, not even being allowed to date the girl she loves, I now have sympathy for her.

Just shut up. :tape: They threw her onto that court so she could start at the same time as Zakopalova for when they play in the third rounf match, and most matches get finished on the court they began on. Calm down, drama queens.

Her last Grass court title was in 2005 and the last time she made it past the 4R at Wimbledon was 2006.

No words, no words... :sobbing:

People need to realise that Court 2 is probably just about where Masha belongs. She's not a former/defending champion. She's not an in-form player. She's not top 10. She's not French. The only reason she'd be put on a big showcourt right now would be because of her fame.
