View Full Version : UK TV-alert: Maria in Transworld Sport (San Diego 2006)

Aug 15th, 2006, 11:32 AM
(Transworld Sport may be televised in other countries, but the details in this message are specific to the UK.)

There are three points from the San Diego final between Maria Sharapova and Kim Clijsters in this week's Transworld Sport, which is repeated with sign-language at 3:50am BST on {Wednesday night/Thursday morning} on Channel 4.

The tennis was 22 minutes into Sunday's broadcast of Transworld Sport, so I recommend 4:11am as a safe start-time for timer-record.

The points they showed:

* Clijsters serving 0-1 (30/30): They exchanged ten rather ordinary groundstrokes, then Maria came up with a stunning backhand winner down the line: so sharp, so flairsome, so precise, so accurate.

* Clijsters serving 5-6 (ad Maria): Clijsters netted a forehand off a mildly-awkward deep forehand return from Maria.

* Clijsters serving 5-7 5-6 (15/40): Clijsters served down the middle; Maria hit an off-backhand return just inside the baseline, forcing Clijsters to hit a defensive forehand lob just long.
