Since ESPN's coverage starts at 7:30 EST, do you think they'll show Kim or Alex! I think Kim but I hope Alex!

It's Kim vs. Shaughnessy.

That 730 match is a tape delay match, and Alexandra's match don't start until 8. ;)

Come on Ai - she has a much better chance to make a match of it in the final cause she knows Kims game much better than Alex does!

It started raining a bit after the doubles match, but it is not raining at the moment. So, hopefully the match will start in 30 minutes. :)

It's just a light drizzle where I'm at (which is less than half a mile from the courts), so hopefully it will stop any minute.

this tournament is cursed :eek:

It almost never rains in scottsdale except in the week of the State Farms Classic :rolleyes:

I hope that we at least get a final this year :(

Yeah, last year if I'm not wrong, they didn't have problems with rain but they had with the winds...

Anyway, I hope they are warming up at least.. I can't take it anymore!!!

Wow if they can't get this Alex/Ai semi in tonight the scheduling for tomorrow is gonna be horrible!

I assume they'll have the semi match on first but then what do you put after? If the Kim/Ai doubles match is second that means that Ai has to play 2 matches in a row..maybe even 3 if she makes the final :( Which would be totally unfair for Ai.

The Weather Channel says that the rain is supposed to end sometime in the evening...
hopefully it won't be 11:30PM!

I would think Ai & Kim would withdraw from doubles, they would have to play 3 matches tomorrow.

In that case, Kim and Ai should focus on the singles...
a pity since they seem to be such a great combination!

That's unfair since Kim already completed her match. They should have the doubles semi before the singles semi....Kim has already won the title as far as I am concern.......Oh well.

Maybe Alex could get a little extra rest and pray that Samantha keeps calling Ai on her cell all night and play some loud music to keep both kim and Ai up all night...then Alex could be refresh.....maybe Lleyton will nag Kim for some ass and keep her up all night.....whatever the case, Lets GO ALEX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They should have played the second semi directly after the first. I mean how backwards of them! The rain has been ruining things all week and finally they get some decent weather and they only play one match? That makes no sense whatsoever.

Yes. Classy and respectful since I want Alex to win. Don't get mad at me cos I am rooting for Alex. Why you taking it persona;....if Lleyton want some ass I hope it's tonight.......

The way you are talking it seems like you are Kim or Lleyton...oh well. That is what you get for snooping in on someone's shit....

Can't you just cheer for someone without making fun of other people or bashing them?!? If someone says this about your favs, he/she's a racist and all hell will break loose!

Really? Ppl have been saying alot of shit about my favs but it don't bother me. You have the wrong poster. I don't care what some pissed off poster is saying cos I too am a fan but I know how to put the emotion in perspective....try doing the same...


My favs are Venus,Serena,Monica,Alex,Amelie,Chanda,and some others...I tell u this cos you will know that a lot have been said about them...and I don't care. I even bash them myself....it's just a sport and it's not that serious that I'm gonna break down n cry....

ESPN won't air until 4 PM Eastern, and that's when the final starts anyhow. The final will definitely be the one they are showing.

Alexandra vs. Ai doesn't begin until Noon Eastern, a four hour difference. The match will be over before they come on air.
