I don't have 10 hrs, only two matches 5 hrs I guess!! Unfortunately!!!
RG is ESPN rights so they don't have a good coverage for that!! They only show the Argentines!! I like Chucho, Chela, but not only them I want to see!!!!
Oh and Federer all time!!
I'm just praying for have Marat and Gonzo on my tele!!!

Btw, the draw!!! Just sucks as usual!! I'm having a revival from MC 1st round!! By that time Gonzo sent Carlos home!! And now Marat!!! Hopefully it will have a different end!!

Here ESPN only shows Americans

But as Venus is the only seeded American in the WTA side, they'll have to show other players

They will probably show Gonzo here in Brazil because he's Chilean.

I mean, ESPN Internacional is not an Argentine network, it's hosted from Miami and is directed to all Latin America (spanish-speaking, that is ). Oh, and ESPN Brasil will also cover the event, so we'll obviously see also a few matches that do not involve Latins and maybe even Marcos Daniel's match, since he's playing a Frenchman and it could be at a shown court.

Re: The "Tenacious Florianopolis Surfers" Chat Thread!

MTF crashed last time I post so hopefully this one survives.

Live coverage for first week is from 2am to noon in my time zone. So I probably missed most of the early matches and only catch the late matches unless I get up really early

So you are brazilian as well!!! Nice!
It is the first time I will see the ESPN Brasil coverage! I didn't have it before, only ESPN International which cover the main matches in special the latin palyers in action indeed! So let's see how it will be!!!!

ESPN shows Federer all the time. They didn't show Sharapova today just Mauresmo and Federer and little bits of other matches.

Tomorrow, it's live coverage! At last they've decided to go live from RG. This is the one time I wished I lived in the east because it would be easy to start watching at 5AM. It's more difficult at 3AM.

Yes, it is a bit better than AO. For us it will start at 6AM on ESPN Brasil than move to ESPN International from 10AM. Today was the same for us, Sharapova almost living soon!!!
Tomorrow will have lots of action!!
Star, what is your name? May I ask you that?
Ah! Are you guys playing the bet game at RG official site? Today all my predictions were almost completely screwed up!! Hope this year I win at least a T-shirt!! Dreaming!!!
Good start of week for you guys!!
