This week's Trans World Sport has highlights of the Tokyo Pan Pacific Open final between Maria Sharapova and Lindsay Davenport.

The points they showed:

* First set, Davenport serving 0-1 (30/15): Davenport hit a booming serve down the middle; Maria stretched for a forehand return; Davenport hit a forehand into Maria's forehand corner; Maria hit a short-angled crosscourt forehand winner.

* Second set, Maria serving: After a rally of several strokes, Davenport hit a forehand winner down the line; Maria just stood there because she'd anticipated the wrong way.

* Third set, 6-6 tiebreak (Maria serving 6/5: championship-point): Grunting loudly, Maria served to Davenport's forehand; after a rally of two crosscourt forehands from Maria and two from Davenport (the first of which was a netcord), Maria hit a forehand winner down the line into the open space she'd created, and raised her arms in victory.

For those in the UK, Trans World Sport is repeated on {Wednesday night/Thursday morning} on Channel 4 at 3:55 am. The tennis is about 28 minutes into the programme with Saturday morning adverts (which are likely to be shorter on the repeat, the duration of which is 55 minutes rather than 60).

Trans World Sport may also be televised in other countries.

Trans World Sport is not something you have - it's a programme every Saturday morning on Channel 4 in the UK (possibly televised in other countries too).

Dunno whether I'll be up late enough to catch this one.

If the flu strikes again and I have difficulty sleeping, I might watch it then.

Sadly, my family are rather stingy with videotapes.

"I'm not wasting a tape on that tennis nonsense" is all they would say.

Not a bad idea.

But I'm a lazy bastard. And a lazy bastard who is waiting out on a DVD Recorder.

Sadly, my family are rather stingy with videotapes.

"I'm not wasting a tape on that tennis nonsense" is all they would say.

I must have about 500 video-cassettes by now - mostly acquired over the last ten years! :eek:

I too am considering getting a DVD video-recorder before Wimbledon.

Pros:
+ DVDs are much smaller physically than video-cassettes.
+ You can quickly skip between tracks.
+ You can pause and wind at various speeds without white noise (great for watching rallies in slow motion!)
+ DVDs don't degrade over time as do cassettes (and their recorders).

Cons:
- You can't physically leave a DVD in the position you're up to as you can with a cassette.
- I expect recording and re-recording to be more painful than with cassettes if my experiences of CD-burning (even with rewritable CDs) are anything to go by.
- I'm also paranoid that a little scratch might make a DVD completely unusable, whereas cassettes degrade gradually. :angel:

don't worry about scratching them, transfer all the data straight to a computer or store it in a memory stick.

I've never tried recording one I'm afraid.

Winding them on, if you look at how many minutes, it's relatively easy to find the same position again.


DVDs= 1000000 times better than VCRs.....just wish I had the money for a DVD recorder!

so I have to stick to my VCRs :(

Cons: - You can't physically leave a DVD in the position you're up to as you can with a cassette.Many players will have the ability to bookmark the position you are at.- I expect recording and re-recording to be more painful than with cassettes if my experiences of CD-burning (even with rewritable CDs) are anything to go by. Re-writing over a DVD in a Recorder is far simpler than doing the same thing on a PC. You don't have to load up software and keep wiping the DVD for a start. A Recorder will just automatically write over the previous content on the DVD. Of course, I talk in general terms, I can't vouch for every individual Recorder.- I'm also paranoid that a little scratch might make a DVD completely unusable, whereas cassettes degrade gradually. Nowadays, some DVD's have a special film attached to the surface. The film greatly reduces the likelihood of scratches occurring.
