And the best part for me is that no-one will be able to tape the showings on Eurosport of the matches that happened in the early hours of today. Rather like the US Open, I suspect the weather will clear and the schedule will have returned to normal by the weekend, but the result could well be similarly disappointing.

I didn't realise how much I enjoyed the semi finals from last year.

What, the US Open or the TMC? I didn't see a single live ball of the latter (I got a delayed repeat of Agassi v Schuettler and a slow scoreboard of Federer v Roddick), and the former was turning out just great after a Ferrero victory and a score of 7-6, 6-3, 6-6 (6-5) to Nalbandian in the second semi... then the whole thing fell through.

I meant the TMC finals, they showed those matches, then they showed the 1st matches of this years champs during the rain delay.

I have to listen to the brilliant Simon Reed and Jason Goodall, the man who can pronounce Båstad correctly, and shows it off a lot.

You're not alone in that department.

Better than American commentary and that's all I can say about that. Though Jimmy Arias is very funny.

I'm getting taped matches too, but that's because of the stinking rain :p It sucks because TSN had slots for live matches all week :fiery:

Actually I think we should get both matches tonight shouldn't we TBE? According to the schedule it says it's live on British Eurosport from 6.30pm to 10.30pm which would be time enough to show both. Unless of course they choose to show recorded highlights of Tim after his match finishes! Not forgetting Greg's words of wisdom of course.

Shows how much Castle despises Rusedski though

He introduced him as "The Former Canadian Number One"

Castle is only fit for breakfast TV (and the commercial sort, at that). He makes those kind of snide remarks about everyone. I really hope Eurosport don't keep him on for the AO, it'll spoil the party.

He did that?!! :eek: :eek:

How is Greg at commentating? What was his reaction to that remark?!!!

Why does Castle dislike him/how can you tell?

oh! yes, what a total waste of airtime he should stick to gmtv and fear factor, as he rarely has anything original or insightful to say regarding tennis :(

I am a big fan of Jimmy Arias's work, he was brilliant when he was commentating in Acapulco.
