Default Roland Garros Scheduling.

Why the hell have they got both women's matches on court first and then both the men's matches after it? Surely the logical thing to do is to have one men's first on one court the the other one second.

Default Re: Roland Garros Scheduling.

Doesn't make much sense but I think since we're getting to the latter stages of the tournament, they don't want to give one guy a small advantage by getting an extra couple hours of rest. Shouldn't matter regardless, but I think they want to avoid a situation where

Chatrier: men's match is first up and is super short
Lenglen: men's match is second up and is a 5 hour marathon after a long women's match

But it still shouldn't matter, they've been clownish with it this year

Probably to get the Women's QF's over with, since they have to come back and play SF's the next day.

They should be starting earlier though.

It's not like the WTA deserves such attention.

Default Re: Roland Garros Scheduling.

Both the men's semifinals will be the last match of the day (due to interest) so they're going down that route and making things as equal as possible as far as time between QF's and SF's for both the men and women involved in tomorrow's matches.

Li Na has played all of her matches first thing in the morning because this way they come off as perfect to watch for the Chinese audience (at around afternoon) which needless to say ensures a large TV rating, for RG and the Chinese networks as well, who in case of a good performance from her will broadcast her matches on 5-6 channels at a time.

Because it's run by the French who are always clueless about business.

Because this way all tv stations have to show one women and one men SF. Otherwise they would show only the men's matches because no major station nobody cares about WTA, they only care about ratings.

Gotta admit though the first super saturday in '84 was fucking awesome. Started at 11 am and finished at 11 pm.
