They're putting the ladies doubles final on court 2?! Look at who they have playing on court 1...

-Mens doubles finals
-35 and over senior womens doubles final
-45 and over senior mens doubles final

:eek: That's pathetic...

Who are the seniors on Court 1? Maybe they think those people are a bigger draw than the 4 women in the doubles final. If Martina N had made the final, I am sure the women's doubles would have been on Court 1 or even Centre Court.

I think it's because Cara Black has to play a mixed semi, then the woman's final and then the mixed final possibly so they are having to space it out a bit for her maybe :confused: Plus the men's final is best of 5 ,so if Cara's having to get her matches out of the way early she might be waiting around if she is scheduled on 1. Anyway the Court 2 people will really appreciate it more and make more noise at seeing one of the real finals rather than a juniors/seniors match.

and how can they put mixed doubles semis second when the winner have to play after mens final?

If mens final over quickly and womens dubs final last long, the winner on that side will be too tired, wtf?

way to screw up Cara Black as well. The best way to sort it out would have been mixed doubles semis in court 2 and have mixed doubles final after men final and women doubles final

Junior finals on courts 3 and 18 !!!! and we have these OAPs clogging up centre and no. 1 courts. Ridiculous.

The junior finals should be opening acts for the seniors on the Saturrday and Sunday.

You people can be so dense sometimes.

Look at the weather forecast. It's going to absolutely piss it down today. They need to get all the important finals out of the way as soon as possible. Hence this schedule.

EXACTLY, at the french open juniors are on court 1. putting them on court 3 and 18 is abit of an insult compared to french open. at least put them on court 2 or 1

They dont seem to be keeping to the published schedule anyhow!

The BBC seem to know when the wd final is, but they're not telling anyone.
