View Full Version : UK TV-alert: Maria in Trans World Sport

Mar 6th, 2006, 03:00 PM
(Trans World Sport may be televised in other countries, but the details in this message are specific to the UK.)

There are three points from the Dubai final between Maria Sharapova and Justine Henin-Hardenne in this week's Trans World Sport, which is repeated with sign-language at 4:30am GMT on {Thursday night/Friday morning} on Channel 4.

The tennis was 30 minutes into Sunday's broadcast of Trans World Sport, but the repeat is 5 minutes shorter, so to be on the safe side I recommend an offset of 25 minutes (i.e. 4:55am).

The points they showed:

* Maria serving 5-7 0-0 (30/15): Maria hit a weak midcourt forehand, giving Henin an easy crosscourt forehand winner.

* Maria serving 5-7 2-4 (30/40): A high-quality rally ended with Maria coming in behind a penetrating backhand down the line, but her backhand drop-volley sat up nicely for Henin to hit a backhand pass-winner down the line.

* Henin serving 7-5 5-2 (ad Henin): Maria netted a forehand return.
