I really have a big feeling that Almagro will seriously whoop Nadal of the court

yeah I am watching
first match I have been able to see those past couple of weeks
I found a channel broadcasting the tournies
very excited
I saw few games of the first semis
I am very sleepy but will stay awake to watch the match
I like Almagro's forehand , looks deceptive

I am watching the scoreboard. I don't have the patience to click everytime they get a point though, so i'm off to have a nap. Then i'll resume my scoreboard viewing.

I know Nadal broke Almagro already...........is Almagro playing very sloppy, Nadal killing him already or was this the "first game gitters"?

betterthanhenman, please no secondary live scoring or "live impressions" threads for currently ongoing matches in General Messages.

While the match is going on, please follow that in the tournament forum of the respective tournament, but it's not good to have in-play spin-offs for some matches here on General Messages, too. For this we have the tournament forum where I moved this thread now.

:wavey:

The match is shown on Dubai Sport TV (Nilesat and Arabsat and Hotbird). It is free for us here in the Middle East. I suppose it is the same in Europe. :)

Good luck finding any consistency in MTF. Anyway, not a nig deal.

More importantly Nico missed a set point.

I agree that it happened before and will happen in future again. Nobody will be murdered for posting "xxx just won the first set!" when a big/mentionable upset is maybe in the making and when somebody replies "he's down a break in the 2nd as well" or when some occassional live scores are posted in threads such as "Who is going to win? XXX or YYY?" or when a few actual current scores are posted in a thread to discuss a match before it is played.

And if it already happend, I wouldn't delete that either if I see it too late. I won't, can't and don't want to check every 15 minutes if somebody is doing something or posting something at the wrong place. Best I can try is informing people how it should be handled and where the main forum for live scores is.
