HELP! ESPN/STAR Asia (based in India/HK) Sucks!!!!!!!!!

VJ, Allen Wilkens and Niru!

Where are crazed Iraq terrorist groups when you need them?
How about our neighbor radicals the J.I? Come on someone!
Shoot them please! Allez come on!

Louise P wasn't doing too good either last night. She said
Original Martina has a good chance against Vera Z, and LD!

I almost died when VJ, said that the draw isn't effected by the
Belgians not playing. The Williams sisters own WIMBLEDON blah, blah..

Hewitt? One thing I hate about Star/Asia is that they suck
up to the CommonWealth as if they all wished it was the
good old colonial days.

Sorry, Hewitt and Goran aren't in it this year,neither is Henman
if you really think about it. It's going to come down to Roger
of Andy.

I don't even like Andy so much; but did you notice a sort of
anti- Andy Roddick American slant on the TV coverage. I think
he's being used as a sort of anti-American scapegoat this year.

What really pissed me off was when VJ talked about the women's
draw and said the missing Belgians don't affect the draw!

How the fu*k can Kimmy (3x time semi finalist) and Justine (1 ru, 2x semi
finalist) not being in the draw not be a big deal! Is this guy stupid!!
It's been Belgian -vs- Williams from 2001, 2002, and 2003! They've
shut down everyone three years to the point that the WIMBLEDON has
become a sort of annual event for those 4!

I hate VJ. Did you notice he never mentions Kimiko Date? She is
historically the greatest player from Asia ever to be in WIMBLEDON.
I don't know why they keep on saying VJ is? BULLSHIT!!!!!!!!

I do not think we will see much of the Russian players male or female either...
There seems to be an anti-russian sentiment on their coverage too...

Greenout, peanuts, since VJ mention about 2 belgium gals being a non factor
What did he say about the russian gals?

Oh- Time to drag out this gem, yep the VJ and Justine anecdote.
I think this was at WIMBLEDON 2002. Well...VJ during a rain delay
tried to get an interview w/ Justine and she snubbed him with a
Gallic wave of the hand and a mini "ppffff" and walked away. We
didn't get to see it; but he talked about how disrespectful young players
are because they dont' want to speak or listen to their senior former
WIMBLEDON players.

I'm not joking. VJ has never since said a complimentary comment
about Justine. . I dont' blame her. I never heard of VJ
Amitraj in my life until I moved to Singapore and watched STAR ASIA's
WIMBLEDON coverage. I dont' think Justine has ever heard of VJ
and assumed he's some "weirdo Indian" guy and walked away.

He just said there's "alot of them in draw".
WTF? Isn't one of "them" an RG champion now?

I still can't get over the fact that VJ and Niru said during the US OPEN
that the population of Belgium was 400,000 people.
