Thumbs up Is it just me or did STAR/ASIA's coverage improve??? :)

I've tried to stay up and watch STAR/ASIA"s coverage
and I'm surprised. What happened? Did our hostile
e-mails work? LOL. Alot of focus on Asian players,
evening mentioning Japanese players as Asian players,
more women's matches, and yes- even less Niru!!

HURRAH!!!

Big thanks to Star sport

On Monday 25 they showed Tammy vs Grande the whole match.
On Tuesday 26 they did the same, they showed Paradorn vs Saulnier plus Chang vs Gonzo match.

Today Tammy vs Schnyder match will be the first match at court 11, it will start at 11:00 am. Hope they will be doing the same.

star has been weird here in the philippines. we dont have any commentary at all! something must have conked out with our audio

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

i think it is too asian centered(or thai centered). i also have to sit through vijay fawning over paradorn

I like Starsport Asia, they show the Open from Morning to Evening

hear! hear!

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

I don't expect the Asians to make it beyond further
than the 4th round- so what's wrong in showing them
during the first week? I love Amelie, but she hasn't
played a quality player yet. Patty vs Tammy seemed
more interesting on paper; to bad it was just one of
those days for Patty. Yup, she didn't really get into it. LOL.

I want to see more Justine Henin;but VJ doesn't like
her ever since she snubbed him for an interview a
couple a while back. ROTF. I'm not surprised they
have been showing Paradorn over Justine. Still
less NIRU is something to cherish!!!!!!!!

I think it's good that they're showing more Asian players but I'm bummed that they favour Asian matches more than competitive matches like Jelena vs. Mary.

They already showed Paradorn's first match, give me a chance to watch Jelena.

Og and it's great that Niru's not talking that much but Vijay needs to shut it sometimes too.

exactly, that;s my point! its paradorn, paradorn, paradorn, when there are more competitive matches going on, like the jelena-mary match! and paradorn's matches always take forever
