maybe we shouldn't do live scores for Indian Wells.
If we do then there'll be "Live Scores slow the board down"-threads rising everywhere again, and by the way, everyone can follow the live scores on the Indian Wells site anyway: http://www.pacificlifeopen.com

Or maybe we should do them per set.
For example:
1st post: Lucic won the first set against Gagliardi 6-1.
2nd post: Gagliardi won the second set against Lucic 7-5.
3rd post: Lucic won the match 6-1 5-7 6-2.

Hi Lu, who is that in your avatar? :wavey:

Mar 5th, 2003, 04:21 PM

i agree with glenn, but you know that it is going to be impossible to keep all 16,000 members of wtaworld from posting updated scores every point and from cheering.

You don't recognise her!?!
:mad: :fiery:

hehe :p

It's Iva with her RG trophy. :)

As for the match. I also think Mirjana can win. As long as she keeps away from the 'self-destruct button' everything will be ok. ;)

Mar 5th, 2003, 04:24 PM
I agree as well.

Mar 5th, 2003, 04:26 PM
let's just use the live chat for this =P

Mar 5th, 2003, 04:27 PM
yeah, ok, forget that (mutters about live chat still being down...)

Master Lu
Mar 5th, 2003, 04:29 PM
bah. I was about to ask whether it's down or not.

Is only the page down, or the chatroom itself?

Guss I'll try using an IRC client.

OK, only the webpage is down. The IRC server is still up and running. But I'm alone in there right now. :(

The server is irc.wtastarz.com
channel #wtaworld

Get your IRC clients and go there. :)

Hey, everybody can't follow live scores. They are working and doing other things. Live scores threads are great for everyone who can't sit at their computer and watch the play by play. Most people can't. Tonight and tomorrow and so on, many people will go through those threads and follow how the match went down. I make sure that I don't check results til I get to read through them. I appreciate the people who do those threads. There's a lot of suspense that you get to share by reading them. What I dislike is when someone posts the end of games before people who are watching can post the play by play. I can't understand why anyone does that. It makes no sense and ruins the play by play coming up. I scroll the screen in small increments to read the points before I see the end. Thanks to all of you who do those point-by-point posts. I'm sure you could enjoy the match more if you weren't hassling with typing it up for the rest of us.
