You don't see many male Spanish players doing well on grass.
Of the current Spaniards, Lopez has had the best results at Wimbledon (4th round in 2002 & 2003). I can't see Nadal doing much better until he improves his serve. He can get away with that serve on clay, but not on grass or the faster hard courts. At least he has a good attitude about grass compared with the a lot of the previous generation of Spaniards who skipped Wimbledon entirely most of their careers. It seems like since the South Americans started getting some good results (& the organizers slowed down the court), more of the younger Spaniards decided to give it a try the last few years.

Although the Rafa fans must be disappointed in their guy's loss, they also must be pumped to know that he's the youngest finalist since Andre Agassi, he's a capri-wearing Spaniard playing on a US hardcourt, and he took the Almighty Roger to five sets and didn't blink. That's just amazing.

This was a great final *adds video to vast tennis collection* And my lame gambler bet on Roger will put me over the $1,000 vcash mark. Finally.

Caro, I'm going to tape the Punk'd episode tonight using my new fangled computer video recording device but unfortunately, the file will be HEEyuge. I don't know how to make it smaller. I'm new at this stuff.

All I know is: if any of you are still on dial-up, you'll be downloading this file for a week.

Tangy, you cannot distribute a file that big to anyone, no matter how fast their connection is.... there has to be a way to make it smaller, but there is just NO WAY to distribute an 800+ MB file!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do you realize how big that is - it won't even fit on one CD!

Can't you cut if off into smaller/ shorter videos? It will be just like having ad breaks.

No, she's talking about a HUGE File - it's not compressing right, we can't figure out the right settings. Punk'd will probably be about 5 minutes.. depending on the quality, that should be a 10-20 MB file or so. She's talking about an almost 900 MB file... something's not working right with it, we're trying to figure it out.

What's the file format? Real Player makes smaller file sizes and Quicktime the largest.

She has a Mac - she has no choice but Quicktime. And no, that's not true. AVI is the largest. then MPG. Quicktime is pretty average, actually. And all the what I would call "readily share-able" filetypes (Quicktime, Windows Media, Real Player) all have many different compression settings and we just can't find the place to change it in tangy's software yet.

Re: The "Feel the Miami Heat as Andy Sprains his Wrist!" Nasdaq thread

It's quicktime but it's obviously not the kind of quicktime that, say, AR.com uses for its videos.... we just can't figure out how to compress it right

Re: The "Feel the Miami Heat as Andy Sprains his Wrist!" Nasdaq thread

i would like to be more of a help but not knowing the equipment you are using it's difficult and i suspect the original material is a vhs tape, right? good luck girls, i hope you figure out the problem.

Re: The "Feel the Miami Heat as Andy Sprains his Wrist!" Nasdaq thread

The problem is - I know how to do it on a PC with AVI and MPG and WMV formats, but I don't know what the software looks like on a Mac with QT and obviously I can't look over Tangy's shoulder and see the program

Thanks for trying We'll keep working on it to see if she can figure it out.

Ratings for tennis keep rising every year on US TV.

ESPN2 Sees Ratings Rise With Key Biscayne Coverage
By Tennis Week
04/07/2005

Roger Federer and Kim Clijsters weren't the only winners at the Nasdaq-100 Open. ESPN2 nearly doubled its 2004 viewership with its coverage of the Key Biscayne tournament.

ESPN and ESPN2 presented slightly more than 33 hours of total Nasdaq-100 Open coverage — up 10 percent from the 30 hours the network televised in 2004 — with ESPN2 registering a significant ratings rise in its 24 hours of coverage.

ESPN2's Key Biscayne coverage reached an average of 394,000 homes, which is nearly 90 percent more than the 207,000 households the network averaged in its 2004 Nasdaq-100 Open coverage.

ESPN, which televised a little more than eight hours of the event, averaged about 351,000 households, a decline of about 6 percent from the 2004 average of 372,000.

The presence of several familiar Grand Slam champions playing deep into the draw created compelling story lines that drew fans to the stands and viewers to their televisions. Six-time champion Andre Agassi fell to Federer in the semifinals that was a rematch of the 2002 final. The unseeded Clijsters continued her winning streak by stopping Maria Sharapova to claim her second consecutive title. The tournament marked the 2005 debut of former No. 1 Justine Henin-Hardenne, who lost to Sharapova in their first meeting. Three-time champion Venus Williams snapped a six-match losing to younger sister Serena with her quarterfinal conquest of the three-time defending champion.

The two highest-rated matches of the tournament showcased some of the sport's biggest stars: the Federer-Agassi match on Friday night, April 1st was ESPN2's highest-rated match, drawing 590,000 households, followed by Thursday afternoon's clash between Sharapova and Venus Williams, which reached 512,000 homes.

Interestingly, the Williams sisters quarterfinal, which aired on tape delay on ESPN2 starting at 12:40 a.m. Eastern on March 30th generated a 0.4 rating in reaching 346,000 homes — a positive performance given the late-night start time on the East Coast and the fact that viewers already knew the result by the time the match was aired.

ESPN2's tennis coverage continues tomorrow at Amelia Island. ESPN2 will televise the final three days of the Bausch & Lomb Championships with coverage on Friday (1-2:30 p.m. Eastern time), Saturday (noon-2 p.m. Eastern) and Sunday's final, which will be aired from 1 to 3 p.m. Tim Ryan will serve as play-by-play announcer with Pam Shriver providing analysis. ESPN2 will televise The Family Circle Cup live from Charleston beginning next Thursday afternoon.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
