hey greeny glad u stared this thread. i was thinking of starting it but u beat me into it
i have to say i was very suprised when i first found out. as far as i know, this is the first time they're showing the AO. maybe because its celebrating its 100 years
anyways, good or bad coverage i'll take it, the AO coverage from the local network in here sucks although the commentators are not that bad (fred and co.), the fact that they only showed the fourth round onwards was incredibly stupid.
well there's a lot of japanese and chinese girls in the first round, so i'm not expecting much from the coverage on the women's matches. i do hope though that they show matches wherein there is at least one high-ranking player (e.g. dinara against zheng). i know they're both non-asian but it's worth the intrigue, maria vs sesil
or maybe not cause paradorn is probably (still) playing around the time their match is scheduled. he seems to have this knack of stretching his 1st round matches into 5-setters. exciting.
hmm for the men, its probably roger, lleyton and who else paradorn.
again. i wonder if they'll show xavier vs haas. its on the night match. will they show the night matches btw??
