Why start at 9PM :help:

9PM is 2 AM in the UK, I need to sleep

Don't people in New York need to get home for work and stuff?

Won't affect me, I won't be watching it. ...you'll get sleep anyways, Kim will blast poor Caro off the court in about 50 mins!

There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

Lol and considering all anyone cared about was when Serena's match was on, rating won't be as high anyway....

Re: Why start at 9PM :help:

ARGH. When i looked this morning i saw Del Pony-Nadal first, then Federer and Djokovic at half 4, and the womens after. So its actually scheduled for 9PM now?

Nadal needs a miracle

Kickoff Sunday, the VMAs... this is really the worst scheduling the USTA could have hoped for.

Re: Why start at 9PM :help:

I'll still probably gonna get up to watch it but thats cos I don't start work for another 2 weeks. But I won't be happy for it and will root for Kim with a very sleepy head

"And thanks to all the people around the world for supporting me, and my fan club, I could feel your support no matter where I was in the world. Thank you for your devotion. Most importantly, thanks to my family, especially my mom. You've been very supportive, encouraging, inspiring... you were always there for me. It was a long way and we did it together. I love you mom. It's so emotional. It's so hard to say goodbye. I'm going to miss you so much"
