and Tennis Channel won't have coverage until 5PM today so they will show something tape delayed :fiery:

Nadia will beat Dubois 61 61 :yawn:

Its a shame obviously but Eurosport often don't pick the matches they are going to show, they just pick the time slot.

They should show Nadia play Patty next round. That will be a good match.

ahh - Grandstand, not Stadium.No, Elena & Fran play on the Stadium Court too, just not when they're going to show tennis. I don't think they can change their schedule and pick whichever match they want to cover. :sad:

If Lena - Schiavone goes over 2 hours then we will get to see some of it, but id rather lena won easily :p

the schedule is made weeks ago , so they can only hope the organizers put a good match on that hour.

Ivanovic's match will probably be even more boring than Petrova's one. Both will destroy their respective opponents in less than one hour. Dementieva also should win this easily, so I don't see what's the problem. Try Cincy Masters instead, that's gonna be more interesting for sure.

Don't tell me you would prefer Henin vs Williams over Hantuchova vs Dubois or Yan.

Indeed I would prefer Henin vs. Williams. I don't watch Hantuchova's matches very often anymore because I have no nerves for that. I rely on video vault in that case.
I understand your argument though, but ES has firm schedule which is made before the tournaments start so there is little they can do. It all depends on decision of tournament organizers. And honestly Pierce's whining is getting a bit tedious lately, hence my reaction probably. :angel:

Petrova vs Dubois on paper looks to be the least interesting match and thats the problem, for those of us who only have ES

TSN will definitely show Ana-Yan, but not Lena-Fran... they only show Stadium matches. :confused: Hopefully Zi will not get completely destroyed, although she very well might. :o

Yeah, you get to see your favourite player like Ana, Justine or any top 10 every week or so.

Dubois is televised ONE week/year and for about 2 matches.
So, missing one match out of 50, I don't feel sorry for you at all.

MisterMan
Aug 15th, 2007, 03:02 PM
You think Ana's match will be more exciting than Nadia's ?? LoL ! They'll both be over in 45 minutes.
At least with Nadia's we'll see the occasional meltdown, swearing, racket throwing. Ana's will be more boring in my opinion.

my fave is Yan ... I get to see her much less than you get to see Dubois :o
I have never seen her on TV, only LIVE. I want to see her on TV so I can hear what the commentators say about her game :dance:

we see Nadia's meltdowns every week (in Fed Cup against Venus, San Diego against Schnyder) ... don't need to see another one :haha:

Ana's match will be much better than Nadia's

Aug 15th, 2007, 04:26 PM
You will get some good home-crowd cheering for Steph, making it more interesting to watch, plus Steph will play her best in front of her crowd, and Nadia will probably not be on, so it might be the tiniest bit close. You never know.
And TSN will definitely show the end of Lena-Fran because it seems to be moving at a slow pace right now.

Aug 15th, 2007, 04:28 PM
Well maybe I'm wrong and Ana destroys Zi, but I think Zi has chances to at least, challenge Ana. I don't think it will be that easy for Ana. Probably you have never seen Zi Yan's play. For example in Berlin, she played very well against Amelie. She lost 36 36 ok, but she did more winners than Amelie, and less UEs. They key was that she wasted 12 BPS or something like this :lol: But it was really an entertaining match. Zi has a lot of potential. She has an impressive double handed FH, and she is so quick ! I really enjoy her kind of game :) I'm so exciting for this match !

There is no any livestream for UK Eurosport right ? :sad:

Dexter
Aug 15th, 2007, 04:29 PM
That's subjective. For me Ivanovic vs. Yan looks more boring on paper, not that much more though. :tape:Probably because you can't stand Ivanović more than Pietrowa (I don't know about your feelings towards her anyway).

By the way don't forget Zi Yan defeated Nicole Vaidisova in Hong Kong exhibition. Yes, it was an exhibition, but I saw that match, and Zi played very well, waiting for Nicole's UEs :p

I think it's really hard to see any of Ana v Zi in Eurosport :sad: Really bad luck :sobbing:

Fingers crossed Elena will win this set 6-1 before 19.00, and then there is a record of super fast match in Petrova v Dubois :lol: :tears: (Elena keeps wasting chances :rolleyes: :o :fiery: )
