Fatigue is the reason why last year they had byes for the players who reached the semis or more of a tournament which was held right before the on-going on.

Stomach infections/personal problems etc. dont deserve this special treatment :shrug:

anyway, if she was supposed to play tomorrow then she should play tomorrow, if she doesnt feel well, it is her problem,then she has to try it or withdraw, I remember Graf asked to play on a Wednesday her first match at a GS, and they refused back then and she had to play Tuesday then, so well, Wozniacki was free to ask for it but organizers should never have changed the schedule, that really sucks!

Since you have eased up on your homophobic comments....


it's called discretion...i said it's not uncommon for a tournament to use their discretion :lol: and in this case they have used it because someone was sick...this would make a difference if they were asking someone to start a few days off what they would usually start on :lol:

As if players get special dispensation with such regularity. It would obviously set up a ridiculous precedent. The reasons for this seem totally unjustified.

Scheduling a 2nd round game as last on the last day of 2nd round matches (which is Tuesday) because someone is sick is called 'discretion'. Postponing a 2nd round match to the day of the 3rd round matches (which is Wednesday) is called 'blatant favouritism'.

As I don't think it's fair to postpone her match BECAUSE she's not feeling well, you can often see a player who just made the final of a previous event getting a late start in her next event :shrug: THIS is not uncommon. Caro won last week so I don't see a problem. It's a bit stupid to say that it's because she was sick though, it clearly makes drama for nothing.

As I don't think it's fair to postpone her match BECAUSE she's not feeling well, you can often see a player who just made the final of a previous event getting a late start in her next event :shrug: THIS is not uncommon. Caro won last week so I don't see a problem. It's a bit stupid to say that it's because she was sick though, it clearly makes drama for nothing.

she had already a bye,that's enough :rolleyes:

It's really not fair to hold over a match because of a stomach infection. Wasn't Sharapova sick yesterday? She still had to play whereas Zvonareva and Safina got to play their 1st round match today.
True for Maria but looks like everyone wants Caro for that inevitable #1 spot so this is not very surprising the real deal is will that beneficiate Caroline... I think not we'll see.

That's why they invented the BYE now postponing someone's match because they're sick is clear favoritism... you're sick you simply withdraw... Caro's "name" played a big role into this... but hey who cares she losing anyway in the early rounds.

Sure but the final of Tokyo was played on Saturday...that's a full 4 days of rest.

Usually when there's a case of two finalists playing the week afterwards it's 2 or 3 days tops before the next match.

And had not been for Caroline's diarrhoea she would be playing Tuesday and not Wednesday.

I'm a Woz fan and want her to reach the number one spot, but not sure I agree with this decision. It's not fair to give preferential treatment to one player but not others. That being said, 2R matches are still being played on that day so it's not too much of a stretch. All Caro did was request a postponement, and the organisers allowed it. You can't blame the girl for trying.

I definitely understand the organiser's trying to help Caro - I mean her match to perhaps gain the number one spot is a very marketable opportunity. They want her to get to that stage of the tournament and exploit that publicity they can gain. So it does make sense.

Is it fair? Probably not. Does that matter? Not really.

As people have said before though, this probably does happen in other tournaments without the public hearing about it. But more important than all of that, I just hope Caro gets better and recovers well from her infection. Give a good match :)

Just to mention, Sara played 2 long matches today, spent over 3.5h on court (2h13min and 1h25m), I'm sure she doesn't mind to only play doubles tomorrow:shrug:


I don't think this extra day will influence the outcome of the match. Both get an extra day rest, and both can use it.

This.

she had already a bye,that's enough :rolleyes:

Yeah, but because she has a BYE doesn't mean she has to play the first match on the first day of the 2nd round matches lol. She won't be the only 2nd round match play that day, so they won't be behind on their schedule. As it's a first match for her and that Errani has played today, it's not a big deal. I mean it's not like if Errani had played her first round match on Sunday and she had 2 days break to play Caro on Wed. She's the #1 seed probably one of the biggest name in the draw (like it or not it's reality) she just won a tournment last week. They'll do everything they can to make her play on the big court as late as they can, that way she'll be rested and they will have better chance to see her on the final day. A big tournment always wants their seeds to go as far as they can, and they have done and will still do everything they can to make it happen.

I just think it's a bit unfair to hate on her because of that, I think it's a bit silly to have given that has a reason, they should have kept that info for themselve. If they would have just announced her match on wednesday, that wouldn't even had made a thread on here. it's just drama over something that is not even an issue. Because I don't see any thread about Dulgheru's match taht is played Wed too.

With health problems... or without health problems... two players which played final previous week in general should to play LAST DAY theirs first match when that round is playing :shrug:

No big deal, and good to see also Dementieva playing her R2 match also in Wednesday.

Oh, so its for both Tokyo finalists their R2 match in Beijing will be scheduled Wednesday? If so, it sounds more like Beijing organizers just did the sensible thing; schedule allowing and played Tokyo finanlists as late as possible .. stomach infection or not or does Elena have a stomach infection too?

Players can always ask for a later start, a lot of players happen to do that actually once in a while, its to the tournament's discretion what they do with it. Apparently now they honoured it?

Please don't make a big deal of this, its totally unnecessary. :o

It would only be "unfair" if there would be no other second round matches the next day. But there are. So what the hell is "unfair"?

And, of course it's allowed by the WTA. Why wouldn't it be? Again, it would only be unfair if no second round match would be planned the next day.

As for tournament directors "helping" top players, nothing new. The Canadian Open would schedule Graf or Seles 1/8F match on Wednesday (instead of Thursday) to give them a break so they would only have to play 3 matches in a row Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

That's how it is. On this board people spend their time hating on her because they're a bunch of losers. Out in the real world people favor her. From New Haven to Beijing. She's the new "IT" girl and the #1 spot shall be hers.

She'll only be keeping it warm for its current and rightful owner.

I'm not sure what I think about this. On the one hand I agree that all players should be treated the same and that if she is sick she either plays sick or Errani gets a walkover. But, and someone please correct me if I am wrong, Caroline's first match was never given a set date. It's not as if the schedule for that day was announced and she did not play on that day. After each day's matches are done the schedule for the next day is announced. Because she had a first round bye Caroline's first match was never announced as having a set day/time. Am I clutching at straws here? Maybe, but I do not think this is quite as bad as some folks do.

I'd be willing to bet that this happens a lot more than we actually hear about.
Her match was moved before tomorrows schedule has been even been published.
Postponing opening round matches like this happens all the time when players are sick or come late from last weeks tournamnet. But usually the organizers or players doesn't tell about it.
