I have an idea. Instead of the suggestion of shortening the deadline, you could post the next week thread's when you do R1 results of the current week. Meaning:

Rome results go on for like 5 days.
Strasbourg deadline is those 5 days + 2 or so days for you to have a break.
etc.

I don't care either way. I like the pace of the game. But in no way should the deadline be a day.

Pierce Poised for Home Town Glory

http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lzgch9TM4w1qgn5yxo1_500.jpg
(Pierce photographed with compatriot Amelie Mauresmo)

Rising WhoWhatWhere Tour star Mary Pierce believes her improving form and the support of her home crowd may be the perfect formula for success. Fresh off a semi final run in the Premier 5 tournament in Berlin, which saw her lose to eventual champion Serena Williams in a tight 3 set match, Pierce believe playing in front of he French crowd will only inspire her more

I've been waiting for the home crowd for ages! I know with them behind me, and if I play my best I will be hard to beat

The French woman who strives off competition and success insists that not having won a tournament yet will only motivate her more, but she's not looking to rush things

It will happen when the time is right, you know. If I lose a match that just inspires me to win more, to beat that girl next time and keep improving.

The draw is yet to released but Mary isn't bothered by the draw, and is just looking to take it one much at a time

I don't care if I draw a wild card or the world number one first round, I'm going to play to win anyway, it makes no difference to me...I just want to play my best for me and for the French people

doubles final should be a good one :drool:

so should the Venus-Angie match :drool:

Cornet misses her chance on grabbing no.1..

Venus needs to win the title in order for her to be no.1 (unless if Misa wins in Lucerne)
If Venus loses in Final and Krajicek lost in SF then Misa will still be 2 points ahead!

Serena Williams discusses lost and new partnership

http://i.huffpost.com/gen/171038/thumbs/r-SERENA-WILLIAMS-SAM-STOSUR-FRENCH-OPEN-large570.jpg

Serena Williams from the United States of America suffered her first early lost since Miami this week in Strasbourg. That being said, the lost was far from shameful as Serena fought hard against her sister, Venus Williams, who's ranked number 2 in the world. In what might be the match of the tournament, Serena had loads of opportunities, but just couldn't convert. As Roland Garros approaches Serena said the lost was bittersweet, because she really wanted to win this week and keep her winning streak, yet she feels like this could take pressure off her shoulder heading into the second grand slam of the season.

http://www3.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Venus+Williams+Serena+Williams+2010+French+VIltpGM FDRTl.jpg

Serena also discussed her new doubles partnership: "I would love to partner with Venus more often, but as it is we both have our partners and we're both doing great with them especially Vee. So yeah...I guess I'll wait for her to ask me." Serena is expected to play her doubles final later today, before heading off to Paris tonight.
