Cincinnati schedule for thursday

2D7773DE-C699-4B1B-A5C6-94F3838A2A90_1565829056210.jpeg

The order of play dumping the world no. 1 (naomi osaka) to court 10 over the likes gasquet/schwartzman and medvedev/struff.
Even nishioka/de minaur has a better court.

this is a strange decision...Osaka should be drawing crowds in the US, as she is well known.

Re: Cincinnati schedule for thursday

Osaka is playing Hsieh, so it should be no match.
No match = no people watching= court 10.

I'm more annoyed at the Kenin Svitolina rematch being on at not before 2am UK. Probably the match I'm most interested in and the one time I can't watch. Looks like the likes of Poots vs Kuz, and Plisk vs her opponent will be the matches on at prime time here (8/9pm) which kind of sucks as well. Hoping Stephens can come through here or I'll be more tempted by the ATPs offering, which would be very rare for me

Re: Cincinnati schedule for thursday

Is Court 10 even televised? Tiafoe lost so they should move RBA vs Qualifier off Grandstand and slide Osaka in there.

It is televised. The vekic-azarenka match was court 10.

Re: Cincinnati schedule for thursday

This is the strangest scheduling decision of the year, did someone make a typo to put world #1 and reigning USO winner in the parking lot

Re: Cincinnati schedule for thursday

I'm not one to usually complain about the schedule but putting a world #1 on court 10 is a really weird decision.

Re: Cincinnati schedule for thursday

Looking at the men's matches is pointless. If they wanted Osaka on one of the three main courts, it would be a women's match moved not a men's. The match that looks out of place to me is the Pliskova Peterson one. Pliskova is ranked and seeded lower than Osaka and Peterson is a qualifier. You would expect the Osaka match to be better viewing, and I would have thought Osaka would draw more of a crowd than Pliskova.

I wonder if Osaka requested it, because it really doesn't make sense otherwise.

Re: Cincinnati schedule for thursday

Ppl always got something to say bout Venus but you see where she at in the OOP tomorrow

You still got the Top 4 ranked players, all 3 of this year's Slam winners, & even the Wimbledon Winner, Halep playing an American but they still put Vee on before Fed as the ESPN matches!

And that's being ranked outside the Top 60. Bar Serena, Venus is still the biggest draw in the women's game.

Re: Cincinnati schedule for thursday

Maybe Osaka's team requested it, instead of a late night spot given to Svitolina vs Kenin. Nice and intimate court for both SW and Naomi to shine.
