Adri, our special reviewer, is busy with her studies I guess. And of course, they come first! You'll have to content yourself of the reviews made by Jazz girl on the Mariano forum. But as far as I know, this thread isn't closed.

Hi guys again! Thanks for your good luck wishes on my studies ... I'm officially over with this semester, all went good but now I'm taking 2 summer courses to get rid of some subjects I had hanging around (you know those annoying elective ones...). Anyways, I'm really upset with my Fox Sports signal, it's been 2 weeks and no show! all because of the football Confederations Cup which is like a small version of the World Cup. The matches are always on at the same time I used to get the show here. So unfortunately I can't give you any review now Let's hope I can watch something next week!!!

The article is about the increase in tennis programmes on TV caused by the spectacular popularity of the sport in Argentina. Its description of Tenis Pro coincides pretty much with my own views: I'm always cursing their slapdash attitude to the programme, with not-funny funny bits, Mariano and Chelita going on camera with nothing prepared, and very bad quality footage. But while they have the entrée into that priviledged world we'll all continue to lap it up!

………….........But the oddity among the cable tennis programmes is undoubtedly Tenis Pro………………… It’s a mixture of edited home videos and a serious programme that falls short of expectations. Inside jokes, surreal scenes (such as Chela sprawled on a bed in Hamburg reading with some difficulty viewers’ emails… during five minutes!), subtitles with spelling errors and almost nothing about the “white” sport is the general trend of the series.

But there’s a real find in Tenis Pro (and it’s not the wit of its conductors, despite the recorded laughter): it permits us to gain access to places where a camera never enters. The players’ lives during their moments of leisure, the coarse jokes between them, the nicknames, the games during the long waits on the circuit, the travelling, the tours, the girlfriends. Where else could we find exclusive images of Marcela Kloosterboer kissing her boyfriend (Gaudio) on camera and fooling around like in a home video? Nothing about tennis, but a lot about kids wanting to laugh about nothing.

The whole point is that those kids are tennis players, the ones who make us rise at dawn in winter, stay up till all hours in summer and check out rankings, draws and TV schedules. So welcome, tennis.

Thanks Reiko! When I can I´ll translate a few bits. I had no Internet at the office until I was about to leave, but perhaps tomorrow I´ll be permitted to carry on with this "work"!

Pasión por la red
Tenis de Primera
El cable se llenó de drops, raquetas y match-points.


Confiésenlo: ¿cuántos de Uds. sabían de passings, tiros de revés invertido y Grand Slams dos años atrás? El nacimiento de la Legión argentina y los resultados de nuestros compatriotas en el circuito tenístico masculino alteraron nuestro sueño.Ahora madrugamos en invierno, ansiosos por la televisación de los torneos europeos, y trasnochamos en verano por culpa del Abierto de Australia. Ahora criticamos el revés de tal jugador, envidiamos el saque de aquel otro y opinamos con conocimiento de causa sobre las tácticas para jugar a cinco sets. Ahora somos todos Coria, Nalbandian, Gaudio o Cañas. Ahora somos todos tenistas.

Y como si no bastaran los partidos televisados a diario por las 4 señales deportivas por excelencia (ESPN, Fox Sports, TyC Sports y ESPN +), la cobertura de sus noticieros en todas sus ediciones, las repeticiones y los enviados especiales a los grandes torneos, el cable se llenó de ciclos con red de por medio.

Tenis con Clerc es la eterna postal de todos sus copetes: el espigado Batata, vestido de jugador, raqueta en mano y al lado de la red anunciando lo que viene, lo que viene. Entre anuncio y anuncio, algunas entrevistas con jugadores de hoy y de siempre (a las que les vendría bien algún tipo de edición y ritmo) y clases didácticas de cómo practicar tiros de manual el próximo sábado en el club.

Algo similar intenta el ex jugador y comentarista estrella de ESPN, Javier Frana, en las propagandas de la señal, mostrando en cada corte trucos para impactar mejor un drop-shot o cerrar una jugada en la malla. ESPN + ofrece también un ciclo más informativo: ATP Tenis show resume la actividad semanal de todos los courts profesionales del mundo, con solvencia y pragmatismo. Tenis 2005, por su parte y de la mano de Juan Szafrán, recuerda jugadas memorables, grandes tenistas y partidos de la historia, y alterna tanto archivo con alguna que otra entrevista breve (brevísima).

Pero la curiosidad del cable raquetero es, sin dudas, Tenis Pro, el ciclo que conducen Mariano Zabaleta y Juan Ignacio Chela y que va por su segunda temporada de aire. El incomprensible lema, repetido hasta el hartazgo por conductores, colados e invitados es “Tenis Pro… y nada más”. El programa está a mitad de camino entre una grabación casera con edición y un programa en serio que deja bastante que desear. Chistes internos, escenas surrealistas (como Chela tirado en una cama en Hamburgo leyendo con bastante dificultad los mails de los televidentes… ¡durante 5 minutos!), subtítulos con faltas de ortografía y casi nada del deporte blanco es la tónica del ciclo.

Pero hay un hallazgo en Tenis Pro (y no es la gracia de sus conductores precisamente, más allá de las risas grabadas): es el acceso que permite a lugares donde no se asoma una cámara. La vida de los tenistas en sus momentos de distensión, las bromas vulgares entre ellos, los apodos, los juegos en las esperas del circuito, los viajes, las giras, las novias. ¿En qué otro ciclo podríamos tener la exclusiva de Marcela Kloosterboer besando a su novio (Gaudio) en cámara y haciendo bromas como en un video familiar? De tenis nada, pero de pibes con ganas de reírse de nada, mucho.

Pero, y he ahí la cuestión, esos pibes son tenistas, de los que nos hacen madrugar en invierno, trasnochar en verano y chequear rankings, cuadros y grillas televisivas. Así que bienvenido el tenis.

I love him for this attitude.

Everyone who gives us the report (that includes jazz_girl), it is so appreciated! And please do not worry if you cannot report.

Adri, hang in there for another 2 weeks - then the European summer clay court season is almost there! Good luck!
