Don Quixote, No. She will be at 9 but if she does not do well at USO, answer is Yes.

Now, we know the draws for USO, here is my prediction on who will grab the night matches on the first 2 rounds(ATP first round last 3 days) ATP - Federer, Djokovic, Murray, Roddick and Isner WTA - Serena, Maria, Kim and Venus

Sokol, I would say yes to Ovechkin as she has never performed better but remember, her loss to Samantha in that 3 set battle at USO despite winning the longest TB in USO 17-15 may have kick started her rise.

Sokol, Maria K better grab New Haven as Serena looms in R16 and discusses with ESPN2 about the car she got for winning a medal ESPN2 is going to replay some of the Querrey win over Dolgopolov before going live at 3 PM for Tsonga vs Isner Samantha Elin, Wished Caroline would have given a walk over but good effort in trying to play. Hopefully, 2 or 3 days rest will be enough for her.

Ovechkin vs McIlroy about to start in New Haven
1 reply
Samantha Elin, Have not heard anything about how the courts are playing but Djokovic did say after losing to Federer in Cincinnati that the courts will be slower. Cincinnati is one of the faster courts on the tour. In case of Serena, I can believe that on being slower than Wimbledon but the key, IMO, is that you get a truer bounce on hardcourts than on grass where on grass, the ball stays low. But, if Serena hits her spots, it will not matter what surface the matches are played on.

CL, Yes, I got a response and it was that the changes were out of his control so we have been asked to be patient. Wished they would have waited until USO was done and dusted to make changes.

Don Quixote, Good question. Guess Arias may have gotten hired recently by ESPN2 and decided to give him some work. But, no P Mac or Cahill during the USO HC season and Gilbert probably getting the week off.
