Bank of the West Classic 2005, Stanford: news, results, etc!

Thought I'd start this off, as Monday is fast approaching.

Checked my TV coverage for this and its pretty disappointing! Eurosport only showing semis and finals and only an hour's coverage of each!

Patiently waiting to join the silver surfers

Ah! 3 more days to go Only SF and F on Eurosport? That sucks big time. I think I'll rely on Sporza for some coverage or else, Eurosport 2.

According to my Eurosport 2 TV schedule for next week, they aren't showing any tennis (but I'm on Eurosport UK not Eurosport International, of course)

Ugh, just typical Eurosport I don't see it on the TV schedule either. And Eurosport 2 usually has trouble with broadcasting the right things at the right time , so...if Kim makes the final I'm sure Sporza will show it. I think Eurosport will show coverage from the other WTA tournaments that are coming up after Stanford, so fingers crossed for that.

I absolutely hate relying on eurosport with their "unique" way of broadcasting things at the 'right' time. I even went so far with some other tournies, to keep my tv on eurosport the whole week, so I wouldnt miss anything.

I will put my money on Sporza for any Kim matches next week.

Because of the "US Open Series," I get at least the SF and F from all the men's and women's hard court events up until the US Open, so I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of Kim during this hard court season!

Thanks for posting. Kim should be able to make the SF, and then it will get...tough

Now that I look at it, Kim really has the easiest quarter of the draw:

Sugiyama has been in bad form all year.
Stosur hasn't won many matches since Australia.
Stevenson doesn't deserve that wildcard in any way.
Hantuchova, IMO, will be the biggest challenge in this section.
Then the qualifier
And Zvonareva's mental.

Yes, but as Billy Ocean famously sang, "When the going gets tough .........."

And to head off any smartass replies:

*the punch line is NOT "Kim loses to Lindsay again"!*
