What matches did you watch from your local coverage today?

Here in Southeast Asia on STAR SPORTs
it was "live" so it was ok despite the pathetic commentators.

Paradorn (entire match)
Hewitt (from ending of 3rd set)
Venus (2nd set)
LD (2nd set)
Kim (match points)
Roddick (match points)
Ai (2nd and 3rd set cutting off at 4-4)
Roger F (ending match points of 3rd set)
Greg (3rd set)

Watched about 5 minutes of Hewitt (had to rush to work).
Caught Clijsters match when she was up 6-0 5-0 with break point.
Then watched Amanda's match from 6-1 2-3 --> they showed it till the end (the absolute highlight of my day)
Wtached Guga at the start of second set until van Lottum retired
Then they switched to Rusedski -- and I left.
Did see Ai's match point, though.

Whole of Lindsay match
End of 1st set and rest of Sugiyama/Ahl match
Some of Rubin match
Bit of Hantuchova match (start)
Very good Carly/Ironda match

All of these I chose from the NTL (UK) Digital TV options on BBC interactive. It's the first year the system has been used on NTL and I had fun with it - didn't have to watch any mens matches (although the first 2 hours of broadcast were all mens, but I could have switched it off)

Sunset,

Not for the men's. It was that the Indian- Vj Amitraj, and one
English guy who is a former Cricket player, and
another one that sounds like he does commercials.

Thank god that along with the Indian journeywoman
Nirupama, there's Aussie Louise Plemming doing
commentary. It's funny, everything Niru says
Louise says something a totally the opposite in a nice
way. Ha! I think Louise doesn't think Niru knows
what she's talking about either.

Well I've just finished watching the whole of Baltacha v. Dokic on BBC. They started showing it on BBC2, but as soon as Henman walks onto court, they shove it onto Digital interactive (It's a good job I have Digital TV) And then they moved it back to BBC2, when they moved Henman onto BBC1. And now there is a choice of Henman v. Zib on BBC1 or Agassi v. Delgado on BBC2 They better show Jane later on today.
