Okay. I confess i'm really lucky and have coverage of all the TMS and Grand Slams for most of the playing day. Also have been to Wimbledon's show courts. I do appreciate it all believe me.

Too bad how self-centred America is in its DC coverage, but then its every country - Croatia, UK (BBC = Tim + Greg), USA, France..

On another issue, it makes sense that the Croats win because indoor carpets are their best surface, and they need confidence from something like this to maintain a good ranking. It would be funny to see Croatia have more players in the top 50 than the much more populous Britain.

Wooden rackets may have made for more skilful matches, but with my hand-eye co-ordination i'm glad they are gone. So's Andre.

You're lucky about TMS. Eurosport doesn't have the rights to cover those or Wimbledon for that matter.

I understand that other countries may not want to show DC ties that don't pertain to them, although I do think they should all show at least the DC final.

I would actually like to see more British players in the top 50. Tennis has always been huge in Croatia and in Yugoslavia before that. Boban Zivojinovic and Goran Ivanisevic are legends. I don't know what happened to GB, why there are no prospects or promising young players.

Bad feeling this will be like AO 4th round for Mario. Blake and Ferrero are similiar players: strong 1st serve, huge forehand, remarkable athleticism. Mario must win set 2 at all costs, good luck!

ESPN list the tie as LIVE but it won't start in another hour and a half and what they are broadcasting right now, Sportscentre, again and again.
