Re: 2012 Live Commentary Thread

I'm about 30 miles SW of Queens and it's just started raining again.

Not a good day for tennis, it's cold and damp outside!!

I was at Queens yesterday, and was amazed that they didn't start till 12.30pm. Everyone knew that there would be rain around 6pm, and it arrived right on time!! The next few days forecast don't look that good either !!!

Thanks for the info. At least today they have scheduled an early start.

May be they start that late because it's more theatrical? Or because BBW Two starts at 13.00 (on the Red Button it probably starts earlier)?

I think so too, I'm very much looking forward to it. Bummer is that I have to travel for about one and a half hour, and I'm really trying to plan that strategically

Re: 2012 Live Commentary Thread

Does anyone know if Eurosport (not British) shows Queen's from 12 onwards?

I love how attack-minded Stepanek is today.

It's great tennis to watch.

And I'm impressed with the roof, it closed in under one and a half minute.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary Thread

Those were some pretty inadequate volleys from Radek to lose the set. Misha is too good a returner, though. This isn't a good match-up for Steps.

I'm extremely impressed with the roof myself! The facilities in Halle are excellent overall. And the tennis is also great because it plays like a grass court should.

True, but don't you think the grass at the baseline is too worn down for a court that's been used 4 days?

Re: 2012 Live Commentary Thread

I have live pictures from Queens and I see the cover is off Centre Court, and the sky looks a beautiful bright blue, so hopefully play will start again soon...

For anyone in the UK with freeview, Queens is on the red button channel 301, then BBC2 will show matches from 1pm - 5.15pm, then it'll be back to the red button.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary Thread

How many BPs did Misha just have there?

That game alone took 11 minutes.
