Re: Court 1 at Birmingham - worst ever !

I think anything too solid between the courts would hamper the drainage system they've got set up there. It's not a big surprise that they are more concerned about the effect of rain (so much rain,...

Re: Serena and Sharapova's 'black heart' rivalry

It's difficult to believe that an actual grown up person said that. In public.

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

Depends entirely on the set up. If I can get their sports channel on Sky, I'm irritated that I have to pay more than £1 a month than I do for ES, but I'll do it (and probably drop ESPN).

If I...

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

Is BT Vision taking football matches from Sky Sports or ESPN?
I can't be arsed with this having to pay extra for each different channel / tv system just to get all of the coverage of one sport.

Re: Looks Like ONLINE Coverage for WTA Tennis 2013

...and those of us without access to a fast enough broadband to watch streaming are supposed to do what exactly? Start following under-20s women's football instead? Great.

Re: The Rain Delay Thread 2.0

From my vantage point as a Brit, it certainly feels like during the US Open America has been threatened by hurricane-tropical-storm-storms the last few years. Or is that just a typical week of...

Re: BBC/Eurosport/Sky Sports/ESPN/TTC- Etc - Coverage, Moan Thread !!

I wish that the BBC would stick with a match once it's started showing it. First, the Goffin match was lost to swtich to Serena, now they show 2 games of the Bartoli-Lucic match for athletics - not...

Re: Gilles Simon and the equal prize money debate.

The British press are so predictable. They know fuck all about tennis beyond Andy Murray so fall back on the traditional column fillers: equal pay and grunting.

UK doesn't have equal pay for both...

Re: Does Sharapova get the same prize money of the looser of Nadal-Djokovic?

They give money to whichever of Nadal or Djokovic cheat the most on their girlfriends?

Re: Daily Telegraph's Top 10 Grunters

Why is the British press so obsessed with grunting? It's weird. Is it merely used to hide the fact they know nothing about the actual tennis?

Re: Finally we see (seems to be) a full stadium at the WTA tournament

For the first time in seems like ages, I'm listening to the atmosphere provided by the crowd instead of music to cover the deadly silence. Kudos, Istanbul :worship:

Re: BBC/Eurosport/Sky Sports/ESPN/TTC- Etc - Coverage, Moan Thread !!

Why on earth are Foretz Gacon and Mayr-Achletsomething on British Eurosport?

Who are these people? Surely there's someone vaguely better known playing at the moment?

Re: Which players will be calling it quits at the end of the 2012 season?

I bet Li Na's new sponsors have most likely signed deals that go beyond 2012 so she will still be playing in order to get her $$$$, Sharapova too I would guess.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol2

Use to. Kerber being a semi finalist is no less random than Thomas Johansson being a grand slam winner or Rainer Schuettler being a grand slam finalist...etc. etc. etc.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol2

Stosur can't beat Pennetta so it's probably better that Kerber gets to the semis.

Ah, should've known, the camera work isn't doing close ups so all I can see is a flourescent orange blob.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol2

I presume Kerber's wearing that monstrosity to call attention to the fact she doesn't have a clothing sponsor? Please someone get her one, her top's hurting my eyes.
