Yeah I never understood why the tournys do that. Only rational I can give is that the players were already out late the night before, maybe it gives them somewhat of a break to not come right back.
The same court? I thought that Myskina-Pierce started their match on Grandstand and Sugiyama-Schiavone - on Armstrong..Jarrett said:I think they are doing what they are suppose to do. They complete the match on the same court and play the 2nd match of the day. Isn't that what all the Grand Slams do.
Well looks like it's going to be Capriati vs. Henin-Hardenne semi-final anyway so we may as well skip those matches. j/kM_pIeRcE14 said:Check it out on USOpen.org.
I seems that Kim vs Amelie and Lindsay vs. Paola are scheduled BEFORE the two incompleted round of 16 matches. What are these people thinking?
There are some really good matches scheduled right now, including Kim/Amelie. I have no doubt that the organizers will get every match played. But, today's continual rain and the dismal forecast means bad news for the American TV audience. Tonight was a prime example - Ai made a big come back in the first set, was on cruise control serving for the match when she hiccupped. This weather has messed up Mary's game and she was about to be squeegied out of the tournament. That's pretty exciting stuff! But, we barely heard about it because three American men were in action and one was on deck. Those were compelling matches, also. You know Paradorn/Lleyton was hot and Coria was giving another clinic on Outer Mongolia court.Originally posted by Knizzle
The real dilemma for us Americans is whether we will see the Clijsters/Momo match over American Lindsay Davenport's match. I want to see Clijsters personally.
Don't forget Justine. She and Jen have had the easiest draws and now get the added advantage of having their opponents playing 3 days to play 1 match.Jeff said:Well all I can say is that Kim, Lindsay and Capriati have it cake compared to Myskina, Sugiyama, Pierce and Schiavone.
