Kim and Meghann are playing the second match on the Arthur Ashe Stadium!!!

And on the RTBF teletext it's written that they'll broadcast men's quater finals :mad:

So, I sent an e-mail to ask if they could show the doubles match!!!

But can someone ask also Canvas, so that we'll have two chances to see it!!!

I hope they'll show it!!!

If not, :fiery: :fiery: :fiery: :fiery: :fiery:

Hopefully the mens' quarter will be a quick match or the doubles will be long so we can see more of Kim's match

The men's quarter is after the women's doubles...

so, they should show it?

Oh yeah! I was looking @ the Roddick/Sampras match thinking that it's on another court, but it's later on Arthur Ashe, so they should show Kim :)

:sad: I saw the match live on eurosport. Kim didn't play well, and held her serve only once (after saving break points), I think.

I saw the match live on Espn Star Sports. It's my first time to watch Kim playing doubles. :)

Kim was obviously upset with the way she was playing, although they fought back a couple of times, their opponent was a just better team.

yeah, i too saw the match on starsports.
kim's serve and basically everything just did not work for her yesterday.(holding serve only once) meghann was the better in the team.
and kim got really angry at 6-4 5-3 0-30, she was arguing a line call really seriously. never seen her act like that before

yeah, i saw that too....kim was really upset & the line judge did'nt help too.

i think that was the first (and only?) line call being argued on the match, although it looks like kim has a point, but sadly star sports didn't replay it so i'm not that sure..... the ball bounces so fast but kim & the line judge were in better position to look at the ball.

I'm wondering, what if it wasn't rule out? maybe they could have won the point & went on a tie break or something...too bad. I just hate it when line judges are'nt that sure with their calls. :sad:

Didn't kim got the point??
Because on eurosport they said that the score was 30/0!!!

:bounce: :bounce: Come on Kim!!!:bounce: :bounce:

No, they didn't got the point, the line judge stuck with her call, although in the following play, i think they scored a point, but it was already near match point in favor of their opponent.
