I hope not, Wta world better be prepared. Used to just crash on the eve of slams but this Martina/Venus match has gathered so much interest, I hope they can handle it tomorrow. maybe I should turn this into a poll

I apologize for insulting you earlier. My post wasn't aimed specifically at you, but all the people who couldn't tell from looking that Venus' racquet was a paint job.

No question. I'm already expecting to be pissed off in the morning when i want to check the score of this match and the board "is experiencing a high volume of log ins"

RIDE OR DIE! Down for Venus Williams

I predict there will be about 6 threads posting the result of the match and shortly therefore the board will close down for a maintence check.

This is what usually happens when Venus and Serena play.

Interest, interest, interest surrounds them, unlike any other players.

Let them eat cake.

I won't be able to watch the match live on tv tomorrow and the live scoreboard doesn't half work on the warsaw site so WTAworld is my only hope for having live coverage of the match. If it crashes.............. There is no way I can survive without following the match point by point.
