Yeah I know. It's ridiculous. Did channel 9 just decide they weren't going to show it this year or was there something to do with a contract? I'm really annoyed too. Every time I read articles and comments about matches, I start wishing I could see it.

I hadn't been reading this thread and I just noticed that they're not showing the women's quarter-finals which I thought they were. :roll: It's stupid to show men's, but not women's. (And yes, I know some of you are going to bring up that it's because Lleyton Hewitt is probably going to do well but that wasn't good enough for them to show the whole thing) Admittedly, I'm a little more interested in women's tennis than men's, though I do enjoy watching both.

Apparently, only Lleyton Hewwitt ithe only Singles player left in the tournament.

Not sure about the doubles though.

Some of the best matches i have seen were at us open women's quater-finals and semi-finals time. It really does annoy me, becasue when i see the highlights you know you're missing out, today we missed out on Lleyton and Mark if we have of been under channel 9's same coverage. It really does annoy me.

At least I have Fox Sports channel from 1am LIVE :) But I don't stay up in late night as I have school :( I'll watch it on the weekends for sure!

My bet on winning the US Open is Lindsay Davenport even though Kim Clijsters dominated all US events she entered except San Diego where she lost to Shuai Peng in the QF.

Any of you guys posted on http://www.wtaworld.com/ ?

What was the question ? I read the post-match press conference but didn't catch anything untoward.

This was the question:
Tracy: "He shook your confidence, he exposed the weakness in your game, does that concern you as you head into the 2nd week of this tournament?"

Not exactly a good way of wording the question, was it?

No, especially considering that when on song, Dent has the game to beat anyone in the world. If anything, I would think that Lleyton's confidence would be higher for coming through such a tough match.
