Despite Maria's heartbreaking lose, in the final of Cincinatti's tournament and withdrawal of Montreal's tournament,
we must keep trusting for her,

Oh that's even easier.
So make a new frame and a new layer. Fill the layer with a color you need, you might need to hide this layer on the frame with your picture. Select both frames and press "Tween" button:
http://i36.tinypic.com/349b8f4.jpg
I usually add about 5 frames. Then adjust set frame delay, I use 0.1s for regular frames (ones that were added after the tween thing) and 1s for frames with pictures, texts etc.
Then add your text to the last frame. Again, maybe you'll need to hide this layer from other frames and then voila.
Feel free to ask questions because it's almost 2 am so I guess my explanation might me bizarre :lol:

At this point, one thing matters a lot.

A video of Maria practicing.

Not phony, misleading, undated photos like we were given in 2008, finally being told that she would not be playing in Australia several days into 2009, after the decision had been made before Christmas.

Remember the video lady in Feb. of 2009? She gave a lot of us a sense of relief.

3 mps and served for it and even led 3-0 in tie break

Not necessarily. We were still getting vague hints about Hong Kong and Australia in December 2008, even though she had not practiced for more than a month. The decisions had been made, because her problems were serious. Sometime around the middle of January, we were given truthful information.

They might not know anything for sure, yet.

its $99 installation and an extra $15 per month on top of regular sky, or $599 joining fee and no extra fees each month. Naturally we're going for the $99 one, you also get free sky sports for 3 months so -$10 we usually pay for it.

I think its become necessary because you could see the Wimbledon coverage was great but the feed was crap so it didn't look too special. Also rugby on normal Sky looks shit.

that sounds better than our packages.
Here, minimum is $58, recording with the box is another $10 and HD is another $16. Free first month on basic package and free installation (but if you want HD installation is $200). But the coverage here kinda sux for WTA so I don't know if it's worth it. How's the coverage over there? We do get eurosport & espn but there's really not much tennis on those

Wow thats quite pricey- especially since its Aussie dollars. Though there's no in-between option here. Its just standard or MySkyHDi. Also no ES... I imagine you have more channels too.

There's like no WTA coverage here. Even ATP is not covered. Maybe they'll show one or two ATP tournaments a year. In terms of tennis its just the slams on Sky Sports (ESPN doesn't show tennis here but they like to show effing billiards and poker!), but its worth it for other sports that I watch- rugby, netball, basketball. The actual reason we're getting it right now though is to see Ma$ha hoist the silverware!!! /jinx

Yes it is expensive!! I guess $58 a month is not too bad, but since I only watch tennis and there's hardly any Masha it's like :mad: and paying so much more for HD is pathetic.

I looked at the guide, we have fox sports 1,2,3 and besides slams they basically only show ATP (sometimes delayed) and they showed stanford, cincy final delayed. I'm really not into delayed coverage:lol:

This week's coverage is good though, eurosport is showing montreal and fox sports 1 is showing cincy for mens. I just don't know if it's worth it :shrug: and coverage is better on livestreams :spit:

we have heaps of basketball and netball in free to air (one HD is a free sports channel we have) NBA :hearts:

Hopefully she gets an easy draw this time just to get her confidence up and build her form till the Semis or Final.

I hope to she is in the Caroline's part of the draw!

Whenever Maria has won a Slam, she's always beaten the No 1 seed (Serena at Wimbledon, Mauresmo at US and Justine at Austalian).

I though Serena confirmed she would play.Someone in the GM at least said so!

I would hope so. Maybe it means her heel injury isn't that serious and she can play the US Open.

That makes me think, Am I the only one that has improved in tennis copying some shots from maria? I'm not a strong guy so I'm hitting flater shots and some lazo forehands and they're really working for me!

I'm really bad at overheads and watching Maria taught me to do a swinging volley instead of an overhead.

I have a pretty good backhand swinging volley cause my backhand it's more steady..my forehand depends on the day:ras:

Backhand swinging volleys come natural to me. Forehand swinging volleys are pretty difficult....but then again I'm not a giant like Maria.

I've never noticed that before.

Thinking about how when I used to play tennis during HS- I was pretty average at hitting ground strokes and volleys, but everyone was all 'wow' at how fast I was at getting to all the balls (sending them back very mildly mind you) and changing direction... I think that would've made me a future pusher :lol:

Too bad Serena's not gonna pull out cause then no.1 would be Caro!!!
