That is an awful schedule Serena is going to be super tired assuming the final is on Saturday for singles and Serena makes it to the final.

More poor scheduling decisions for the USO. Serena has a doubs SF match. Why wouldn't they schedule her to play first, especially when her side of the draw had 2 days off?

Ratings. The H2H with the Czechs is good so hopefully she won't need as much firepower for that match.

This is actually a very high quality doubles match going on with the sisters.

I see Serena/Venus not ready to play this match. Was down 2 breaks and now get one back. 5-3 for the Czechs

In all fairness, Serena just came off the court in singles. She should have had the earlier match and Vika the later, so she could have rested more between singles and doubles.

Venus finally holds. 5-4. Can the Czechs serve it out?

I mentioned that earlier, but the USO/CBS organizes the match's to get maximum viewers.

They are not quick at the net today like they were yesterday.

They hold on 3 errors by Venus/Serena. Take the opening set 6-4

Well they will have to regroup and win it in 3 sets. Lots of tennis for Serena. Serena looked exhausted after her singles match. It might not be a horrible thing if she loses this match to have a day of rest for her serving arm.

Agreed. The doubs final is tomorrow after the 2 men's SF's. There's no telling how long those matches will go on.

Maybe Serena wanted to concentrate her prep and work, and not have a 10-12 hour day.

Why isn't Serena going up the line? Why go back CC where their opponent is poaching?
