read this article again. It says:"Capriati believes the extra day will help....". Besides if you lookatthe schedule you'll see that she is scheduled to play when she is supposed. So don't stir the controversy.
I don't know. It looks to me like she just happened to be one of the ones who made it to day 2 in the regular scheduling. Seems a bit odd to me the way they did it. If she did in fact get an extra day granted, that would just be wrong, and not make any sense.
Totally makes sense to me. Besides, the defending champ never plays on the first day....I think all Grand Slams follow that same format. And even if she did....she is the defending champ and #1 seed. If an allowance was to be made, I would imagine it is an unwritten privilege for winning the title the year before.
