    Does anyone know if Stella Artois is being televised this year? The TW TV schedule does not list it. ESPN doesn't list it. I checked the Tennis Channel and couldn't find it either. Last year was the same deal, was not advertised in any listings but it "popped up" on Saturday and Sunday on the Fox Sports Network (just the Semis and Final). It's one of my favorite tourneys and the players consider the showcase center court the best grass court (as far as fair bounces are concerned) in the world, even better than the big W.

    Becker and Leconte are supposed to play a match after the men's final is complete. Goran also has a wild card into the main draw.

    Thanks for the link, Justyn. I remember watching the final last year on the BBC site, and the feed was actually pretty good.

    Last year's Edberg-Becker was really enjoyable. Edberg was in fine shape, and it made me feel all nostalgic. I was hoping that Stefan might come to Queens again this year. *sigh*

    First link on the main page. This rules. Hard to tell whats going on ya, but at least it's very close to tennis!!! Plus, with fast internet, it's non-stop and you get to see how the players are doing
