Does anyone know when the Hopman Cup will be televised (and what matches) in the States? Or for anywhere for that matter?:)

Hewitt defeated Sanguinetti 6:3 6:1. Davide got an ankle turn during the 1st set and was crippling throughout the rest of the match.

Unless you are prepared to set up a network of trading tapes, be prepared to pay a price for tapes from a commercial venue. Consider the work involved in this business....acquiring , taping from one format to another, paying for postage , adveritsing, etc. (have you mailed a package lately????) For prices e-mail Sports Resources . I am a very satisfied Canadian Sports Resources customer.

Well said Maryann2102 !

Yes, this is Sports Resources livelihood, so you can't expect them to give them away at cost price. Like Maryann said, they have to cover their expenses - which also includes the cost of obtaining master tapes from other sources when they can't obtain them directly themselves, in addition to all the equipment, blank tapes, storage facilities, insurance, postage, the time to make tapes etc etc. This isn't a hobby for them.

Anyway, Karen & Dudley who run Sports Resources are both wonderful people. I have been dealing with them for years and have nothing but good things to say about them. They also have one of the largest libraries of tennis footage available in the world, with 1000s of matches, and most are in English.
