it's a service that the wimbledon website provided last year, where you could pay for a "grounds pass" that allowed you to watch something like 9 courts during the championships.

so basically, you had a great chance of seeing your favorite play, because you could look at any of 9 courts (the 9 biggest) and watch any match on that court.

it was really great.

It sounds really cool. I'm still considering to which tournament I would like to go. Perhaps RG? Have to think about that for a little while.

This is a relevant article that appeared in the October issue of Tennis Magazine. Maybe it will be happening at the other slams.

They have it don't they? :confused: I remember I was listening to Sharapova Kostanic at the AO this year.

That was the best buy I made all year, definitely get it, I am still using it today!

It's a must have for Canadians, and other people that get like no coverage.

AO has some sort of radio - but I dunno if it's broadcast from their website too... :scratch: I'm always there, so not looking to listen to radio during the AO. ;)
