Hi,

Having heard a lot about this tennis take on "the Real World" for the US Open Series ad both in GM's and in the interview in another thread with the defending US Open series champs I desided that I need to see it. Being in the UK though, there is no US Open Series ad but sure enough it's on the US Open series website if you wanna see it: http://www.usopenseries.com/home/default.sps

It's in the columb on the right and sort of starts to play a little after the page opens. The default setting for it is "high" but for me to view it without any jumps (because I only have a mid-speed broadband connection), I have to quickly "right click" the ad screen, scroll to "quality" then click on "medium".

Lindsay is on it and I found her fairly amusing - bless her. Towards the end of the ad she say's with great enthusiasm and eyes wide open, "aaaand the US Open!" :lol:

She is apparently the "top gun", Serena is "the diva", Maria is "the IT girl", Andre is "the ledgend", Dim Henman is "the Nice Guy", Venus is "the Godess", Andy is the "rocket Man"....I can't quite catch what Elena D is though.

Well worth a watch....lol

No, no, it's not related to the film. Miss Congeniality is like... a bit like sportmanship.

I don't think Svetlana would be happy with hers at the US Open Champion. Oh well, it's not like she deserved it... not that I'm bitter that she only had to beat Petrova, Pierce, an injured Lindsay and an injured Dementieva to win a grandslam having shown blah form for the whole year.

Mardy Fish should just be "The Pot Head".

Sveta won a slam way too soon. I think that screwed her up alot.
