Well, I don't think it is worth $19.95. Nevertheless, it was very entertaining and allowed tennis fans a very nice behind the scenes view.

Off the bat, I must say, I fell in love with Henman. I think he is a fun person and has a nice personality. In fact, I now hope Henman wins Wimbledon before he retires.

I think Andy has a nice personality, so does Marat. They showed the feet of some of the players........yuck.........

Coria was very giving of his time, and I also think he has a nice personality. He showed some of the emotion that is involved in recovering from an injury.

Moya was also very nice, and I saw, through him, some of the emotion a player feels when he loses a match.

Guadio didn't really impact me in any way, and Hewitt............................................ ............................................no comment.

Federer is the star of the film. I am not going to comment much on Federer because I really enjoy watching him play tennis and make history. I do think that he is very guarded and what he allow people to see of him isn't on the spur.

Fed has a Scorpio moon...he can't help himself. Those who are into astrology knows what this means...

and i am loving it :inlove: Roger Federer is king :worship:

but it's not just about Federer. it is a nicely edited send-up of the guys at the top of the tour. Henman has a lovely wit -- i am enjoying him. and Coria's determination. and sexy Marat :hearts: Moya comes across as calm and cool, Hewitt is charming and respectful, Gaudio comes across as inaccessible -- even before he lost, and the Duck has a cute nephew.

Oh Definitely, I am so happy that they included all the guys, and gave each one a fair amount of airtime.

Why can't Andy be that decent on the court as he is off the court...his nephew is adorable... Andy just lost to Hewitt-he's clearly upset, but it his nephew being there just put things into perspective...that was one of my fav moments.

Coria is not that bad...i know he gets a lot shit...he seemed ok

Did u see Henman's feet? gross!!!

Marat is clearly a stud and he is so aware of it...but it's cute.

It really was a great look at the tour behind the scenes. I enjoyed it last night.

i thought that the Duck's comment about putting it in perspective was absolute crap. i would have preferred to hear him say that he was getting back to the practice courts, that he's a fighter, that he looks forward to their next match-up -- not that babysitting his nephew put it all in perspective :rolleyes: but then again i'm not a Duckfan.

Coria was great. he was so accessible. and there was a naked-butt shot of him getting a massage that would have made alphonsojose swoon :drool:

i liked the fact that Henman showed us his ugly feet. :lol: he was so unvain and witty. i loved it.

as for Marat. :inlove: what can i say. he gets away with it bec he's so charming. and that lady-killer smile. :hearts:

I hear what your saying about Roddick...i'm no fan of Andy's. I just thought he would have been more of prick after his loss to Hewitt. He seemed just low key for some reason. He's never low key on the court- just the opposite.

I don't know, I found his reaction odd..just me.

Yeah, I did see Coria butt shot...too bad it wasn't Marat's ass ;)

Well, I already ordered the DVD, so I hope it does turn out to be worth the $19.95.

By the way, last year's Master's Cup Uncovered contained a near-naked butt shot of Carlos during a massage. Maybe they can make it a theme?

I missed Coria's naked butt shot unfortunately, but I thought that Safin came out the best. I got the impression that Hewitt and Roddick were just acting nice in front of the cameras, but Safin was hot and hilarious! Especially during the final credits... Henman was OK as well.

i love a man who knows how hot he is :inlove: i loved that closing shot of the butt-nekked Safin holding the sign in front of his you-know-what :drool:

Hewitt seemed naturally respectful to me -- especially when he was being introduced to George and Barbara. i think that on-court Hewitt and off-court are two different animals. in the shot with him hanging out with his friends -- he was like a different person. ;)
