They can't show it if it's not a televised court. But don't worry about it too much. There is high possibility of rain tomorrow so it probably won't get played at all.

They probably would if it was a stream court (although looking at the order of play, it seems the earliest courts mentioned are streams as it is not in number order, and Court 9 is not early on ) as given the timing there would be very few matches on at that hour and Casey is still relevant

Love the shade on Matosevic there Kevin

I am equally pissed

I think it is a joke that this match is on one of the only unstreamed courts especially given Australia would pay more for rights than most countries... ALso the timing surprises me for the same reason...

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett wins the first set against Dellacqua 6:3. Keep it up!

Anett lost the second set in a tie-break 6:7(4:7).

Anett lost the match 6:3 6:7(4:7) 3:6. She put up a fight!

Re: Anett Kontaveit

She had Mp in the second set, but Dellacqua saved it with a forehand winner.

Well, if she does well in Middelburg (like she should) then she can't play in Bucharest.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

I think it was still a goo tournament for Anett. Qualifying to the main draw for the first time, beating some quality players along the way (Saisai Zhang, Sesil Karatancheva and Ashleigh Barty). That indicates that her form has improved step by step. It's nice to follow her improvements. Now lets hope she keeps the momentum and climbs up the rankings.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett She did so well though and if she had the draw of some of the other players she would still be alive Still, the MP thing is another worry. I don't know what happened on the points (because I thought there was no stream so I went to sleep) but apparently Casey hit a winner. However, I am sure Anett would have been able to win this match especially in the Tie Break. What is most sad though is that her ranking could have been so much better and the money and opportunities of winning and being able to close out a match are amazing It also would have been nice to get a Grand Slam win before a WTA win. The thing is that given how this has become relatively regular, I don't know why she doesn't just loosen up and go for it. At least then there will be absolutely no regrets and she's an aggressive player so it might pay off..

Just to make it worse, would have been around 130 (slightly below) if she had beaten Casey, already in US Open Qualifying range... I feel so deflated

EDIT: Here is the point by point scoring Unfortunately the one on Slamtracker which says how they won/lost the points is gone but this still gives us an indication on the flow of the match. It seems that by the end Casey was more in control especially on serve. Still, Anett definitely could have done more when she broke back to 3*-4 in the 3rd and in the 2nd at 6-5* and in the TB

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett

I was expecting a fight, but she got it sooo close! Shame about the MP, but if the opponent hits a winner, what can you do. And I also thought she'd level it up in the 3rd when serving at 3*-4 (coming 1-4 down), but she got broken again, though played it to deuce in the next service game.

Still a great tournament

Basically summarised everyone's thoughts, although I don't think I'll sleep tonight with that Match Point given I could be seeing her on Centre Court vs Radwanska But still, to do this without a coach as well is amazing. Now steal Hogstedt from Daniela

Anyway, I did only watch 1 set of news tonight but Anett did get a mention Although they said her name as if she was German (like "Kontavaet" ). I hope she can rebound well in Middelburg and play like she obviously did against Casey to get that 1st Title of year and 50 Points. Maybe Doubles with Indy again BTW, you could watch about 1/20th of her court if you watched the Groth vs Dolgopolov match, which I did today I think my obsession finally dawned on me In all seriousness though, she got massively stream-robbed this Grass season. In some of the photos taken of her we can see some Cameras but I don't know if they were ever even quickly referenced... I can't believe they didn't just put a camera up, they did for the court next to it which has the same seating capacity And given how Estonian and Australian TV always buys rights, I thought they would again be more inclined to put it on a stream than for example Konjuh/Erakovic, where to my knowledge neither country showed the match...

Now I will be throwing all of my Estonian support behind Kaia I have my flag up behind the Family TV and it matches nicely

And Wimbledon is the slam that cares the least about TV. Last time ETV did buy the rights, they did put Kaia's R1 match with Errani to non televised court and ETV was stuck with the rights (that they had payed for), but no Estonians left in the competition. In the end, women's final was showed.

I swear that last year Kanal 12 or someone bought the rights for the Estonian matches or something I have no proof of this, that's just what I thought

Can you not buy the rights for individual matches And I still think Wimbledon does care because A) I thought I heard they have the most expensive rights (hence why Australian free to air was going to stop showing it) and B) they have less sponsors than many other tournaments. So is there no one in Estonia showing Wimbledon or did Cable TV buy it?
