It's now 1.31am in Belgium, and I stayed on to see Kim play but now she hasn't began yet

This happens every year, just in case you two don't know. They always have this routine of performing and singing before tennis is played on the Opening Day.

I know that, I just don't remember being subjected to a ten minute routine of nasty singing and dancing before. Maybe before it was actually something worth watching so it didn't bother me. Why can't they do it before the TV comes on...it's a waste of airtime, IMO.

it was crap, wasn't it? Did the producer of this Broadway show pay the USTA big bucks to sample this crap? If that is a taste of the "best" of the show, I wouldn't be rushing out to buy tickets to go see it
I don't really like Billy Joel songs much anyway.

lmao, I turned on the tv at 7:20, and I thought I had the wrong station. That had to be the most bizarre opening act for tennis that I've ever seen.
I think somebody had some connections, somewhere.

What in the hell was the routine?! Looked like a piss poor version of Dirty Dancing on Broadway.
