OK, maybe not as compelling a matchup as Hewitt/Moya, but Federer is the #1 player in the world. I guess there's a more important poker or tiddleywinks match to cover...

Eurosport here in Europe is showing that match!!!

Or rather - was supposed to show it. Apparently it rains, so instead they are re-airing som old, totally uninterresting lpool tournament and some old boxing matches...

*Sigh*. I think I'll go read that book about OpenLDAP instead.

So the match is rained out. I wonder how that affects my match tonight. I guess I get pushed back to tomorrow perhaps.

Not sure what you guys are shown by ESPN in the US, but here in Canada the video feed to the TSN channel was provided by ESPN Latino, with British commentators for the audio.

They waited for 2hrs until the rain was over, showing parts of last year's Masters, then they showed live or tape delayed by not more than 1hr perhaps the Fed Gaudio match.

BTW, I'd like to see the sun in Houston, the visibility was not at the best, but perhaps it was caused by the TV set where I was.

things looked pretty clear on the court to me marius. BTW, Federe had more than 12 BP chances that he missed, and gaudio gave Federer a battle in the second set. If it had been a 5 setter he might have won LOL (Like RG) Federer was hitting a lot of shots really wide off the forehand side but his bh was working.

Thanks, I probably must move to another TV set.

But working was also Gaudio's backhand:-)

BTW, this is not a record for Federer. In 2003, he won in straights in the USO 3rd round against Blake (losing afterwards to that pesky Nalbandian ...). However, in the 2nd set of that match, as per John McEnroe and gang, he must've beaten the record, by winning only 1 in 20 breakpoints against Blake (which defended himself quite well, of course, but Fed was clearly in another league, but missing kind of much from time to time).

they're showing the federer/gaudio match after williams/sharapova's match. 9pm PST.

Yep. Because Hewitt/Moya got delayed, also because of rain. ...but now it's already started, so am not sure what they will show, Gaudio/Federer or Moya/Hewit...

Sheesh, either one would be better than Sharapova trophy ceremony. Can't blame them for showing it though, big moment.

Hi all, I am just walking in the from the four hour drive from Houston, this match started and then was suspended for a little bit over an hour then it resumed, we had a great time today, the crowd was a little light because of the rain but it was well worth the wait.
