    sportsnet.ca is streaming Monte Carlo. They stream what SportanetONE shows.

    Unfortunately for some, it's tape delayed at times
    This might be the luck of others.

    Watch live on
    livescorehunter.com
    fromsport.com
    if that's a concern.

    Raonic plays tomorrow, center court:

    The derby Raonic - Gulbis is "en vedette":

    Does sportsnet.ca offer replays in the evenings, or only during the day?

    I mean for Raonic.

    Milos Raonic in Barcelona

    He's going to play Stepanek, Kendrick, Soderling in Barcelona.

    He's seeded, (15), but only the top 8 seeds get a bye:

    http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2011/425/mds.pdf

    Tough again, but let's hope he gets to Soderling. Stepanek is very tricky with his style.

    Great experience.

    This is his schedule for Tuesday:

    http://www.atpworldtour.com/Scores/Order-Of-Play.aspx

    PISTA 1 start 10:30 am

    D Gimeno-Traver (ESP) vs P Starace (ITA)
    [9] R Gasquet (FRA) vs J Chela (ARG)
    F Lopez (ESP) vs M Kukushkin (KAZ)
    R Stepanek (CZE) vs [15] M Raonic (CAN)

    That could easily be 14-15.00 EST
    Mind you, not being Center Court, might be not shown at streaming sites.
    Let's hope sportsnet.ca will show it.

    Right, but the things aren't getting any easier: in Barcelona, to make any progress in rankings he would have at least to win the first 2 rounds.

    Says Tebbutt on Raonic:
    ---
    Watching Milos play Simon Greul on Wednesday night, I was very impressed at how committed he is to his tennis.

    He is constantly urging himself on and is hyper competitive. You can just tell how much it means to him.

    If you compare him with a player like Ernests Gulbis, the Latvian who comes from a wealthy family and has crazy good ball-striking ability, everything comes out in Raonic's favour.

    Gulbis likes hitting bolt ground-stroke winners and clever drop shots, but if he misses, and especially if he loses a match, you don't get the feeling that it really hurts that much.

    With Milos, he feels those kinds of disappointments profoundly and uses them to motivate himself. That's a big reason he has such a bright future - he really cares.

    The under-achieving Gulbis, 22, has said that he has thought of retiring. That is surely something that you don't expect to hear from Milos, 20, at a comparable stage in his career.

    Another thing that was noticeable here in Barcelona was how well he is moving on the clay. Often a big-hitting North American, Andy Roddick and Pete Sampras come to mind, would come over to Europe and it was obvious how uncomfortable they were with the traction they (don't) get on clay compared to hard courts.

    Milos doesn't fight it and has readily accepted the challenge of mastering the game on the red clay.

    Daniel Nestor has seen it all in 20 years on the tour. He's sold on Milos. "He's playing great. It's a good sign when he's winning matches every week on every surface. I think it's only a matter of time before he really breaks through one week. Hopefully it happens at a Grand Slam. That's where he really wants it because he has already won a (ATP) tournament."

    Verdasco seemed very sympathetic and polite to Raonic at the net (making up for poor publicity about his previous remarks?), Retribuive justice that he lost final?

    MR lost in a hard played in a very competitive match to Lopez in R1 in Madrid, having got to R 3 in Barcelona,& Monte Carlo, and the semis of Estoril. This is the 4th clay court ATP tournament he has played. And he is barely 20 years old.

    Once again Raonic kept his on court focus and demeanor, mature beyond his years, with a big game and huge talent.

    Bet 365 starts Rome on May 9 so there should be streams available on the usual sites I would think. Don't know when sportsnet stream starts.

    Theoreticly TSN is showing RG live. The upside is that they are showing many hours of taped tennis, a Tennis Channel/ESPN? feed as far as I can see. So if you want to see "Live " tennis, don't look at results and watch it on TSN at your leisure both ATP and WTA. They may in fact show really LIVE tennis next week, . RDS is also showing RG.

    Of course Livescorehunter is still a great source of live matches. Betting sites like Bet365 aren't showing the slams.


    Go/allez/ajmo Milos!

    Great Result for Rebecca Marino at Roland Garros 2011!

    Tom Tebbutt (see the above post) was right:

    MARINO IS CAPABLE ON CLAY

    2nd round RG:

    Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez ESP 6 3 3 v
    Rebecca Marino CAN 2 6 6

    Great result. Congratulations, Rebecca! :)

    Now she plays Kuznetsova.

    I like their games.

    I guess I like Canadian tennis now.

    This result from Rebecca surprised me, because she doesn't move well at all, and HC and grass would suit her better because of how hard she hits, but I hope she keeps going and defeat Kuznetsova as well.

    Raonic might just stick to Halle

    On Milos' plans:

    ----
    As for his immediate future, he said he thinks he will stick with his plan to play the ATP grass-court event in Halle, Germany, the week of June 6, rather than potentially asking for a wild card into the Challenger grass-court tournament in Nottingham, England, next week.
