    Stella!

    The Stella Artois will be covered by the Tennis Channel. Coverage begins at 8:00 AM CDT and they will show all 4 quarterfinals. Coverage repeats beginning at 5:00 PM CDT.

    I am so ready for some grass.

    I'll have to look at the order of play to determine if its worth it to get up at 5:30 am. Most likely it will be!

    Silly boy! Of course it is worth getting up at 5:30. How often do we get to see a tennis match live, and not on some dumb network station with all of its supid commentary? And, on grass to boot, an even rarer occurance.

    People on the west coast will have to get up at 4:30am to see the quarterfinals live not 5:30am.

    By my calculations, the West Coast is two hours behind Central. If coverage starts at 8:00 CDT, then won't 6:00 AM do?

    4:30am it is. Thats a little rough for Tursonov-Henman. Hewitt Nadal follows and then Roddick Gonzo. Looks like the Blake Monfils match will not be shown live, since its concurrent with Turs - Hen, but TTC schedule show all 4 quarters matches being shown live? HMMMM, how will they do that?

    They also only give two hours for each semi. What are they going to do with Nadal and his three hour grass matches?

    p.s. That's a joke, guys. Don't get bent out of shape. All in fun.

    They showed Blake-Monfils? But it was being played at the same time as Henman?

    There's something very refreshing about viewing a grass court match after watching players slogging through the dirt for the past several weeks.....
