Night Sessions: Woman almost always play after men!

It's soo bloody annoying. It's bad enought that at USO they have night sessions to begin with (trying to squeeze EVERY CENT possible of course) but to make matters even worse USO organizers ALMOST ALWAYS put men AFTER woman, so in Europe night session men's matches do not start before 2-3am. That's rediculous. If men and women are paid the same in slams, surely the night session order should be 50-50, which it certainly is not. What are they afraid of? That most people would walk away after mens matches? Probably true, but that's not excuse.

But this is very good for the americans, isn't it? Women matches are warm-ups for the real ones.

It's just so annoying. I missed so many night sessions because of that. If men were to start 1st I could at least watch half the match...Oh, well.

But it shouldn't be treated like that. Woman are paid as much as men, so the order of play should be 50-50 for night sessions.

This is the reason. You could see at RG stadiums being empty when they put women last on there...

That is not as bad because as women being almost ALWAYS 1st. Doubles are clearly not as popular (nor paid as much) as singles so I kind of understand putting them on 1st, but women's tennis is meant to be as popular as men's tennis (according to their paycheck) so it's unfair that they are almost always put on 1st.

Yes they would be awesome if you didn't have to buy a separate ticket for it!

But if you're watching from home night sessions are awesome when they put women after men (which is almost never). When organizers put women 1st it is almost impossible for anyone in Europe (who works in the morning) to watch night sessions. I only get to watch them on Fri/Sat.

And the 80% of the Aussie Open runs while Americans are asleep. That's how it goes. Sometimes you miss tennis. Sorry.

Why would the USO organizers care about European viewers? Do RG and Wimbledon arrange their schedule for the American audience? I don't think so.

Mate tough it out and pull all nighters, they can't please everyone in the world can they. You get to see Wimbledon and RG at your leisure so don't complain. I'm in Australia so I have to pull all nighters if I want to watch the days play at the 3 other slams. Granted the US night sessions kick off at 9am our time so thats reasonable

Well guess what, we have to deal with that with every slam except this one. You guys have two on your time zone. This time of year is about the only time tournaments are on our time zone.. Deal with it..
That's what we have to do..
