Thanks Sol for that!

I've just seen the new Eurosport schedule for tomorrow.
Remember that today they showed the match before night session (90 minutes) and then they switched over to WTA for 3 hours.

Tomorrow (well, Wednesday I mean) they first show a WTA match, then they switch over to Nordic Ski World Championships, then they show the 1st night session match of Dubai (90 minutes) and THEN when Kiwi's match is most likely on, they show again WTA

Incredible what they are doing as if they would miss Kiefer's matches on purposes

The only chance would be that Roger wins in something like 45 minutes and maybe they would show a bit of Kiwi's match then, but even if this happened the chance would be too low because I think they would switch over to WTA immediately then or to something completely different....

Kiefer's aggression and touch has Safin in a spin
By Barry Wood in Dubai

23 February 2005

Marat Safin was beaten 7-6, 6-4 by Germany's Nicolas Kiefer in the opening round of the Dubai Championships here yesterday. Playing his first match since winning the Australian Open, the Russian No 2 seed never found his rhythm against an opponent who had also won their previous meeting at the Toronto Masters last year.

Kiefer, who often came to the net, mixed aggression and a deft touch to frustrate his opponent and although Safin served well at times it was not enough to give him any advantage.

Neither player managed to earn a break-point as the first set went to a tie-break, which Kiefer dominated. The German then maintained his momentum as the second set got underway, breaking to love as Safin struck his first double-fault of the match to fall behind 1-0.

A second double-fault allowed Kiefer to break again to lead 5-2 but he failed to serve out the match, putting a forehand wide down the line on break point. When the German served for the match a second time he was able to seal victory with his eighth ace of the match.

"I couldn't get comfortable on the court," said Safin, who refused to blame his defeat on his 10-day break after winning in Melbourne last month.

"I found the court was a little bit too fast so I couldn't really time the ball. I was missing a lot and wasn't comfortable at any moment," he said.

"He's [Kiefer] a tough one. All of a sudden he makes a couple of mistakes and he plays again and there is no rhythm at all. It's very difficult to find your game against him." Good from Marat

Wind had covered the court with a fine layer of sand and Kiefer said that made the surface faster, to his liking.

"I didn't expect to play this good," he said. "I've been playing well but the last two days I lost a little bit of my concentration, my focus. But I'm very happy with the way I played. I was fighting."

Kiefer said nerves also played a part as he struggled to close out the match.

"I just tried to focus on my game," he said. "I didn't serve so well in the beginning but I could get through the games and that is very important, especially against these players."

Can you receive any channels of other South American countries? JazzGirl told me that tennis coverage in Argentina is really good for most tournaments and I remember that she had different European indoor tournaments on TV lately.

Do you at least get the South American tournaments?

Jazz girl is in Argentina. Argentina and Chile have better tennis coverage than us. We don’t have any tennis coverage in the locals TV sports channels except at USO. In the other side, we have International cable/sky channels as ESPN and Foxsports, but Argentina and Chile also have the regional channel ESPN+ (not available here), and Foxsports doesn’t have the same signal here.

ESPN+ is the only TV channel to broadcast Wimbledon in the whole Latin America, so we can’t watch that tournament in the north of South America (Venezuela, Colombia, etc...), neither Centro America (México, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, etc...)

Important win today. But that Eurosport has no coverage until Saturday is ridiculous.
