Love Means Zero

Guess what? Women's Wimbeldon scheduling sucks. The chief of the Women's Tennis Association, Larry Scott, says he is "disappointed and concerned" with the scheduling of women's matches and plans to discuss it with organizers. Serena Williams, Jelena Jankovic and defending champion Venus Williams were all pushed off the two main show courts for their fourth-round matches. Jankovic had to play in Court 18, which she described as "almost in the parking lot." Roger Federer , Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray have played all of their matches on the main courts. Serena, who played on Court 2, says, "Initially I thought, OK, is this the right schedule? I thought maybe there was a mistake." She is an eight-time grand slam winner, after all. According to ESPN, "the last time Federer was off the two main show courts at Wimbledon was the 2003 quarterfinals against Dutchman Sjeng Schalken - and that was before Federer had won his first title." By the by: Both Venus and Serena won in the semifinals, so they'll face each other in a sister showcase showdown for the Wimbeldon crown! [ESPN, ESPN, Guardian]
