STAR SPORTS/ESPN ASIA presents the US OPEN 2004.

Ok- They have never failed to provide the dumbest tennis commentary
for grand slams. Can they keep it up at the US OPEN?

Last year we had HK bimbo Georgina Chang (she does side commentary
for Snooker/billiards on STAR) ruin the semi -final between
the Capster and JHH. I swear- Chang must've pronounce Justine's
name a different way every time she said it during the 3 hour match!


Will we get the wisdom of former Cricket player Allen Wilkens again?
Thanks Allen for the info during WIMBLEDON, I did not know
Mauresmo and Myskina are clay court specialists!

And off course VJ "I'm the greatest player from Asia!" Amitraj.

Let's be afraid, very afraid!

Coverage starts Monday night 11am- 5am(live day sessions)
7am-10:30am (live night sessions)

I'll probably end up switching off the TV because a)the matches shown are mostly men or uninteresting ones and b)the commentary sucks.

Georgina is Singaporean, if I'm not wrong.

I know what you mean. They were showing a repeat of Justine vs Jen and Georgina was .

Please, please pronounce the BOSS's name correctly.
Hint- Ignore the "H". Do not say her name or try to make
an "H" sound.

Simply read it as it looks here:

Zustine N.N.R----DEN!


Thank you.

OMG I'm shocked. Coverage was actually good!

They got rid of Niru, and Allen Wilkens.
Jason Dasey is there and he's forcing VJ to talk only about
the topics he has on his list- mainly Roddick, Roger, Hewitt,
Agassi, Justine, Davenport, Amelie Myskina/Maria
and the Sisters!


Louise P and Jason did the Roger match.
Cathy Rinaldi is doing Serena's match.

I woke up to late; but they showed Jenn's battle and Elena D's match!

Right. I have to bash. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to much commercials,
and they still did not fire Ms. Georgina "Don't tell Greeny that I'm Singaporean" Chang!!

You know what? Tuesday's schedule is up. The BOSS is suppose
to be 1st match up on Center Court. If they choose to show
Tim Henman or Paradorn instead who are playing on the
no contender courts at the same 11am start I will send a
nasty e-mail to VJ

We want the BOSS.

Well...we can only hope. I know alot of Singaporeans tow the
Aussie/UK line and prefer Kimmy or the Sisters; but I'm just a PR
and I like the BOSS.

Maybe Jason Dasey can pull some weight. He wrote a great
article about her on the ESPN/STAR website in the US OPEN
preview section.

Damn I would agree with gurl that they will most likely show Paradorn instead of Justine. This means we will also miss Marat Safin vs Thomas Enquist on Centre court straight after Justine's match.

I like Jason Dasey... He used to be the host for CNN World Sports segment until he crossed over to ESPN .
