    Was it shown on TTC? I assume so as we could see some of the live coverage with John McEnroe and Lief Shiras, and that was at the venue. So it must be broadcast in the USA???

    It was on live on TTC but since I don't get TTC, I had to watch the delayed on-demand streaming webcast on OLN's website.

    Yeah, it was on TTC. Pretty good coverage--love having J-Mac on as a commentator. Plus, their camera angles are from a lower height than ESPN's, which honestly just does more for me. (At a lower angle, I can see the spins and height of the balls better, and just get a better sense of the pace.)

    So Susan, I'm assuming you are a nethead. Is there some distinguishing feature you have that I could use to spot you in the crowd? There were some good shots of the netheads yesterday.

    No they don't. College basketball is on all day today & tomorrow on espn & march madness is around the corner. Outside of the slams, tennis on tv isn't smart programming.

    It's so damn ridiculous. They don't show Davis Cup or any of these other tournaments, but they have nonstop coverage of Table Tennis.

    Well, that might be the least distinguishing distinguishing feature you could give us. I'm just gonna assume everyone with a net on their head is named Susan!

    Well, I bought a red cowboy type hat, and at future events I will wear that, with the net on top of it. Much more comfortable.

    I'm definitely planning on the next event. :D
