    I wonder what time it ran? I was up at 6am CST and sometimes I can catch the end of a match. It must have not lasted too long.

    I watched it live at 1:30 am MST on ESPN. It's repeating on tape delay at 12:00 noon, again MST, on ESPN2. CST might be an hour later, but it should be coming on very soon.

    Re: Tennis

    When I got to my tv at 8, it was on . . . . again. It was a shorter match than it could potentially have been - lasted only 3 sets. I was able to watch my dvr'd version, skipping the commercials (which are mercifully brief in comparison to regular tv programming!)

    I could have sworn the finale was going to be on at 5:30 PM on Sunday, shown as a repeat of course. That's no longer in my program guide. Instead, it will be on starting at 3 AM (east coast time) Sunday. Another job for the dvr.

    I don't have a DVR! I always feel that the AO is the "lost" open for me.

    Re: Tennis

    I can understand that Libgirl2 . . . the time difference is just too great.

    I guess it's a good thing that Rafa is one of my favorites. They joke about noon being the crack of dawn by Spanish standards. Rafa hardly ever plays a "morning" match.

    Re: Tennis

    I'm so happy for Li Na, but I wish that second set had been more competitive. It's not so exciting to see a 6-0 set. Great for the winner, of course, but not the viewer.

    I'm not really looking forward to the men's final. I'm NOT a Nadal fan and he's been playing so well. I'm not into watching a one-sided match where the winner is a player I don't enjoy watching. I'd LOVE to see Wawrinka pull out a win. I'm always happy when the underdog wins or at least when the wealth gets spread around. It's just boring watching the same players win every time.

    I actually forgot the men's final was on. I just turned it on and holy crap. That is not the score I expected to see in the second set.

    A bummer for everyone involved.

    Yea, it was not a score I expected either. Kudos to the winner though.

    The men's final was not what I anticipated either.

    Congratulations to Li Na on her win. She's one of the few female players I can still watch and enjoy.
