An added bonus is that there is no commentary but you can still hear all action.

I am enjoying this Bondarenko/Azarenka match and you know that the tennischannel probably won't show it this evening. TTC will show Serena, for sure but will not show two of today's great matches. If you don't want to know the results, just log in to espn360 and see all the matches on replay later. This is great. Now I don't have to rely on TTC for a few crumbs of WTA with the bad and annoying commentary.:grin:
