More ludicrous outrage from the permanently take offense at everything feminazi's-both guys need as much rest as possible having to play the next day & these people expect them to wait until after the women's final & doubles final & go out there at 5 pm or later? Then again a famous actress has just been bullied into withdrawing from a film where she was going to play a transgender, having previously been bullied for playing a character that was initially written as being an Asian.

The women's argument seems perfectly reasonable to me. Maybe there is no solution that is perfectly satisfactory to both groups but that is just an unfortunate series of circumstances. What seems to be a bit "triggered" is the responses which shoot for the old "feminazi" shriek of scared manlets everywhere. If this kind of thing really upsets you you should sent a tear soaked letter to Jordan Peterson and so he can assure that boy lobsters always play their tennis finals over girl lobsters due to ironclad hierarchies.

I don’t think it has anything to do with sexism, but I do see how not having a set time for the final may seem disrespectful to the players. But it’s not like I have a better solution for this problem. It is what it is.

When you have always been told to ride at the back of the bus it irks to be sent back there again even if the motivation now is not as overtly problematic.

Is it really that bad to not have a set time? This match hasn't finished yet I would've thought that it only makes sense to finish the half completed one then move on. Really doesn't seem like that big of a deal.

They could have started it two hours before the women's final as now they are in effect pushing that off its perch and making it the highlight of the day.

The problem is where does it stop? Imagine if cowboys had to be acted by actual cowboys. If a boxing film actually had to be a boxer rather than Will Smith. If somebody with mental health issues had to be played by somebody in an asylum or hospital wing rather than Angelina Jolie? How may transgender performers are there in Hollywood? Problem is nobody is going to watch a film with a non performer they pluck off the street or a performer nobody has ever heard of-the idea of making films is primarily financial, not appeasing to lobby groups looking for things to be offended at.

Schedule women's final after men's semi

OMG WOMEN'S FINAL HAS TO WAIT EHRMAGHERD SO SEXIST

Schedule men's semi after women's final

OMG MEN'S SEMI TREATED AS MAIN EVENT OVER WOMEN'S FINAL EHRMAGHERD SO SEXIST
1. There is a lot more interest in Rafa vs Novak than Serena winning another Wimbledon.

2. The guys have to play tomorrow, this is it for the women.

3. In reality the women will have a larger audience due to the lead-in if they go on in late afternoon/evening as more people are returning home from weekend shopping etc.

The winner has another match to play and this could go long. The women will play the final at a decent time, not have to start at 8pm like Nole and Nadal already had to do and then they only play a mximum of 3 sets and they don't have to play another match

What should happen if the roles were reversed?

Probably should have played the men another hour earlier though.

Whiners would be whiners no mather what. In these situations its needed that reasonable people with "power" to step over and stop giving them ground.

I think people purposely create division for the sake of creating division, the issue in the West is people get paid for doing this. It's called agitating, thankfully Lenin called them "useful idiots" so I'm with old Vlad.
