CBS=Turned Off TV.

They did show Venus-Muller and some nice interviews from the lockerroom today from Serena, Hingis and Hantuchoav, but then they are pushing it by showing Serena-Hingis 1999 and then some old Jimmy Conners. I turned the tv off!! Maybe it is time for the USTA to get a roof!!

What do you expect them to do, if their is no live tennis then they have to fill up the time with something, and I think that either today or someday coming up is Conners birthday, so it figures they would show him.

I dont know. But I hate those old Conners-McEnroe tapes that are older than me. Wait a minute, John McEnroe's afro is coming back in style. I really enojyed the Daniela Hantuchova interview with Pammy. And also Pam did a good job interviewing Martina Hingis. Pam actually asked Hingis what it was like to be frustrated with the big hitters and not being able to with those matches. And Hingis started talking about tennis is a thinking game and that line of talk. In her interview, Serena said she was a struggling actress. And Pam interviewed Greg Reu(i cant spell his last name) and she said something like he is from London and is used to the rain. Actually he is from Canada and defected to England due to a monetary issue.

I liked those interviews in the players lounge. I saw Arnuad Clement playing kissy face with a lady, Alex Stevenson and Marissa Irvin strolled pass the camera when Martina was being interviewed, and some other faces I thought I recognized.

It is kind of nice to see some different classic matches. I like ESPN Classic, but they only show about 8 different matches, and they are all from the Australian Open, and all at 6:30 in the morning.

I saw Stevenson and Irvin walk by the camera during Martina's interview, and I have nothing againts Alexandra, but she always looks like she's pissed at something.

There have been how many matches on courts with cameras this week? loads.

They should tape some of them and show them when it rains instead of bringing up oldies.

I'm sure they were!! I would be if they interrupted a movie I was watching to show baseball or soccer or Nascar or Golf or any X-streme sport or bowling or well you'll get the picture.....I feel for them and I'm sure they will get a lot of complaints over it.
