The interview was short but i loved it, she speaks so well,

Lemonskin.

That WAS a short little interview wasn't it?

Most of the show was Rafter understandably.

I would like it if the extended the show to 1 hour and included highlights of tournaments going on.

Yeah it was short but still quite good..:)
Maria talked more indepth about what she likes about modelling etc..
Its funny that they didnt include a single second of Wimby footage :scratch:

Lemonskin.
Oct 17th, 2004, 07:57 AM
Probably because Channel 9 owns the Wimbledon footage :lol: and they dun wanna pay!

Finally, something to cheer about! :woohoo:
Hey Lakan, they're showing SLAM! on Star Sports. It's on every Monday (7 pm I think).
Caught last week's show (the one with the A. Molik interview and L. Hewitt playing golf).
:wavey: I would like to ask the Aussies here if the SLAM! epi I've mentioned was the same over there.
Coz I'm not sure if they are showing it like it is here.

And anyone happen to know about the show Top Spin (was also on Star Sports hosted by Quddus)? I'm not sure why they stopped showing it but I was lucky enough to watch the episode where they featured Maria.

I have Star sports, i am going to record Slam! now when its on :) I have seen Top Spin on there, it showed a clip of maria at a public tennis event or somthing ? :) Well my version did anyway, sounds like the Top Spin you saw had allot of footage of maria? Do you have it in video friend?

Unfortunately i was not able to record it, sorry mate. Star Sports is not showing Top Spin here anymore but the epi i last saw was all about the WTA players and they featured Maria as the new face of tennis (it was after she won Wimby). :)

Slam! was on again today... however it featured no interview with maria... instead only talk of her win over serena...

And my VCR is broken. Hmm... maybe it's time to buy that VGA card with VIVO capability.

Yes.. VCR's belong in museums now... I use my TV Tuner card which produces high quality high resolution digital video. And is cheap to buy to.

Must remind everybody in S. Asia that STAR SPORTS shows [Slam]
on Monday nights. It's on tonight again at 7pm Spore/HK time,
that would be 6pm Thailand time.

For those who have SPORTSPLUS—especially for lakan and faust—they’re showing the Zurich final now so check it out. Look for the sked of other WTA matches on this channel and they might also replay the the semi-final vs Lena D. :)
