This is the worst scheduling I have ever seen. Making Fran play twice at night. I know it would have been Jennifer's third night match...but for the second year in a row, they're trying to screw Clijsters if she makes the finals.

What about the fact that Jennifer just played at night now she's the first match on the court?? Why couldn't they play a doubles match first?

Also, if Lisa had won she would've had to play a singles match then a doubles match back to back?? Schiavone will have to do just that?

The person who makes the schedule needs to find a new job cause they stink. ;)

I don't even understand why they have night matches on a Saturday. They just want to sell more tickets....greedy greedy tournament organizers :(

presume US TV is showing 7-30 match? Eurosport go to bed early so won't show it although after they show the first match there will be the usual "onesided" comments.
Match wise who do you think has most chance of beating Kim? Jen or Francesca - its not as obvious as some might think.

The true awfulness of the scheduling is that if Francesca wins (not impossible as she led Kim in both sets when they played earlier this year) she has to play the doubles before she starts the final against a player who went to bed early. They have made an assumption that they should not be allowed to.
