I see Eurosport are rerunning lakeside footage during the week running up to this.

Eurosport know that not many people will watch the ladies so have shifted it on when football, cricket & rugby will be on

Thats probably not the reason at all, its just its the most logical time to actually play them regardless of whats going on, to ensure an even spacing of games. You dont get the women playing on the same day as the Last 32 men in the Masters for exactly the same reason.

Personally I’d swap it and have as much of the ladies on the Friday afternoon.

It’s just poor planning. the ladies is secondary, playing ladies after every other men’s games is just going to take the pace off the Saturday.

A whole session of Ladies games on a Friday afternoon may be worth doing as an experiment, to see if there is a market for it. Saying that, people happily bought tickets for this before knowing the schedule.

When you say "swap it", you want them to play the mens L16 before the mens L32? A novel idea. Cant see it catching on.

Friday

8 ladies last 16 in between 8 top half men’s last 32

Saturday day

8 bottom half men’s last 32

Saturday night
8 last 16 men

Sunday day
4 ladies QF
4 men’s QF

Sunday night
2 ladies semi
2 men’s semi
Ladies final
Men’s final

Gives the ladies Saturday off but means the games nobody is interested in are on Friday and Saturday is day of showing off the men with with all men’s games.

Had to look at the schedule, have they really put that game on at 8.20 or so on a Saturday night?

They never help themselves. I assume the matches are being played in draw order with absolutely no deviation?

Given the likely standard of the game, scat is more apt.

I also thought it is strange to put Suzuki on 15:30 UK Time, which is 23:30 Japanese time. Not very smart marketing wise.
