I guess it's better than nothing.

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

I like TSN. TSN gave Ana $11 000 to record a commercial for them, which she donated to Schools Without Violence, a UNICEF programme. I would like to see the "This is my Sports Centre" commercial.

The Australian Open schedule, timing wise, is beautiful for me. All my best times to watch TV. The Australian is my favourite in terms of when it's on TV.

I can't wait for 2009, because I'm assuming the WTA will be packaging its "A" tournaments and selling the rights as well as the ATP has. It's not TSN's fault we don't get the womens tournaments, blame Larry Scott.

Sounds good. At least I'll get to see some matches live.

Same as it's been.

Not that I'm complaining, the slam coverage is pretty good.

Yup!

I remember back in 2000, I think it was. They showed the Linz final, Moscow QF-F...the Philadelphia final...YEC. Tokyo final.

Let them eat cake.
