In the absence of anything worthwhile from Eurosport, if anyone knows times of their national coverage of the tennis, please post here. It seems most nations have shown very little, but hopefully some of us will get to see the medal matches...

[COLOR=Black]Youīre Swiss, so...same timezone

eurosport:
01:45h Womenīs final (repeat...uhhh...at least something)
01:30h Menīs final

I donīt really know if they will exactly start at this time, so you may check it by yourself.

If you get ZDF, tennis is scheduled at 15:05h today along with other sports, which basically means no tennis at all...it was scheduled all week long, but it was like 10 minutes of tennis the whole week so far.

We also have those four "Athens-channel", but you itīs digital and itīs still not working in a lot of regions, cause they just started this and you have to buy a receiver for it. Live tennis around the clock...not bad if you have it.

That would be fine with me...I am just thinking...I am not too far away from Belgium, I could make it in time if Dent/Massu will go into a long long third set...then I would just buy a bottle of wine and knock on someoneīs door, anyoneīs door!

Eupen? 2 hours with the train, costs about 7,50€ for me...hmmm...well no, I think itīs too late :rolleyes:

...do you know how much it pisses me off that I canīt watch the match between those two (of course you know, better than anyone)? I was able to watch the last three encounters, but...oh man...I wanna see this one too!!! Iīm feeling like a little girl in front of a closed candy store, imagining how great it would be to see all the candys inside :sad:

It's 11:15 pm right now here. I'm going to drink my coffee and
stare at the two semi finals live! I'll post my reviews and reactions
up here in GM and J-Time after I get over my jet lag w/out the
jet type later on. :)

Can't you pick up Belgian TV if you live close to the border? Or don't you know anyone who's got satellite TV?

I have cable and...uhhh...no, I donīt know anyone who has satellite here, itīs all cable. I mean I could go to cologne and ask if someone already has the digital receiver, but I donīt think they would let me in just to watch tennis (who watches tennis in Germany anyway?) :lol: ...donīt worry TWO, Iīll survive it, I am happy enough that they are in the semifinals;)

Do you know Greenie there's a poster from Singapore (can't remember the name) who's quite anti-Justine? I always imagined the fur would fly if you two were ever to meet up. Anyway, I'll log out now, gotta get myself mentally ready for what's coming now...

Really? That sounds really exciting! What is freelance...? But travel writer sounds pretty cool, you must visit a lot of different countries. Ok, Iīll stop it here, itīs just I think it must be a very stressful, but still cool job.

Dent/Massu 6-7...I have the feeling they are really going for two tie-breakers and then a record breaking third set...at least itīs not that hot by then

If it's any help, it looks like Eurosport are showing the final (recorded) 00.45am - 01.30am Saturday night, not sure if this is BST or CET though!!. :D

Anyone know if it's likely to be shown 'live' on the BBC, or only with 'interactive'?? :confused:
