aus tv sucks like nething when it comes to tennis!

but i got foxtel so occasionalyl we will get a WTA final, like last week when mauresmo d. venus at antwerp... so that sucks but if u like atp tennis as well, which i do, depending on the players , they televise all the masters series events live which is good

btu in general, aus tv is crap when it comes to tennis

I just watch the Grand Slams which they show on free to air (except RG lately )
Apparently Foxtel is good for mens tennis but crap for wta.

Roland Garros so far best coverage on Foxtel/Optus!


Inspiration is for amateurs


Faves: Mona Barthel / Samantha Stosur / Roberta Vinci

isn't that just incredible, you get all of the day's matches in 30 min. They show philipousis tossing the ball, zoom to hewitt making contact, federer following thru on the serve, venus getting set to return, justine making contact, kim rising from a slide, a winner zooming past lindsay, a fist pump by serena and finish up with vera's tears. All in the one stroke!

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.
