I mainly just come here and post and ignore the trivial aspects of the forums, but what are the purpose of credits? How do they work with the donating and stuff?

You get credits for forum activity. Their main use is for vBetting. You can bet on any matches in the vBookie section, where there will be markets for almost all ATP matches during the year. You only win or lose credits, so it's strictly a game.

If you don't want to play this game you can donate your credits to someone else. Just press "Donate" under your credit total on the right hand of the screen, and enter recipient and amount (and a comment, if you want). Of course, you can't donate more than you have yourself.

You can also place credits in the vBank, which gives good interest (4% a month). That will give you more credits after some time. Ofc, that's only an interesting option if you feel you have use for them.

Thanks for the good response! Looks like something I won't be particularly interested in partaking in then.

It's on the Tennis Channel this morning. If you don't have it, it's streaming on http://www.americaonesports.com/flashplayer/2013fo.html.

I'm pretty sure Federer's match won't be shown live, though, since NBC has the rights to it and isn't coming on until 1pm ET.

oh, it's NBC's doing, of course! I thought they'd given up screwing over tennis fans, but I guess not.

I was wrong, Tennis Channel is showing Federer's match now. We'll see what happens when NBC comes on in an hour, though...

If a player touches the net after hitting a ball that goes for a winner/hit for an error by their opponent, their opponent is automatically wins the point.

Why is this? I know sometimes an advantage could be gained from touching the net, but a slight accidental touch is not going to change the outcome of the point is it? Espescially if it's a clear winner and they slide into the net well after striking the ball..

It's so that the rule is more clear. If you or your racquet touches the net, you lost the point. There is no room for ambiguity. Was it "slight" enough? is too subjective a question.

While watching the French Open, I've noticed at the beginning of each changeover that there seems to be a loud exhaling sound, like someone sighing. Does anyone know what it is, please?

Default US Open final

Website says the dates of the tournament are AUG 26th (Monday) until SEP 9th (also Monday). Is the final officially scheduled on Monday this year?

It's some sound effect the RG feed has, and I have absolutely no idea what its point is (and it's annoying).
