    Some of the sickest hitting i have ever seen on a tennis court..Djoker was playing at a super-human level,it was,as if,he was possessed by the demon,and it took the lord himself to show him the right path,exorcising him and forgiving him for his past sins...LOL

    Enjoy:FED VS NOLE (RG Semis)

    side note: i have seen this highlights atleast 15 times but for some odd reason i never get bored..:)

    Is this a video of next weeks semifinal ?

    (Tushy, RG is being shown on Neo Cricket. Neo Sports advertised that they will be showing French Open 2012 full 2:30 to midnight daily) but they are only showing it from 7pm from wednedsay. They will be showing cricket in the afternoon).

    Crooks and cheats, I subscribed to Neo Sports yesterday.

    Oh yeah senti...Star sports was so awesome.I just checked out the NEO SPORTS itinerary,they will be showing hockey tournament tomorrow at 2:30 pm,check it out yourself.You own a satellite t.v,isn't it??

    Fortunately i have a set-top box which is connected to the cable line,so i get around 160 channels which are of digital clarity,and in addition to that there are 3 TV's connected to the same line,each t.v has their own set-top box.All this for just 225 bucks..On the flip side whenever cable line goes off,everything just vanishes.LOL

    ooohhh..I forgot to tell you,NEO CRICKET will be showing the french open tomorrow at 2:30 pm,check it out your-self..

    Great highlight reel :)

    Sure shows that the conditions were faster last year, if we take the first few days just now as a reference.

    Still love the looks on Djokovic face when Federer breaks back in the fourth set while he is serving for the set. He just didn't know what was happening.
    Also the arrogant face when he knows he's lost the match at 6-3 down in the tie-break is priceless.

    Same for Fed's little finger after winning.

    (Btw. I don't think I've ever seen Fed fistpump so much during a match)

    Always trust a Nadal fan to start a thread with one sole purpose of debating his love for San Rafael and whatever helps spreading the word!

    Next stop : The Mallorcan Crusades...

    Sir, that is what I am also saying. It is actually gonna be on Neo Cricket from tomorrow.

    anyway, isn;t that cable thing getting removed from July or something ? I have Tata-sky which goes off whenever there is rain! Is your 3 set-top boxes all legal, or have you internally done your own wiring. I mean did your cable guy do the whole thing.

    I pay a huge amount to tata-sky but don't get too many channels. I have to still pay extra for whatever i watch, and that's only tennis. Maybe i should switch to cable, the guy on my top floor has it.

    Why would they ? Are you suggesting the clay is getting compacted ? I thought it had to do with dryness.

    Yeh, I'm not really sure, I'm just guessing here. I don't play on it here.

    Oh senti,which world do you live in?? LOL..That July thing is for Metro Cities only.From 1st july,Analog signal system will be replaced by the Digital signal system for Metro cities,this includes only those people who have a cable connection.They just need to purchase a set-top box and that's it.They will retain their original connections.

    All of my cable connections are totally legal,infact back in 2008 my cable guy started providing Set-top boxes to enhance the quality,initially my uncle took it and got it installed for Rs 400,then my dad as well as my grand-ma(we got it for Rs 800,1 time investment) got it installed last year.Actually there is only 1 cable line,they just distribute it and connect to the individual set-top box.It's quality is quite superb,only drawback of such a system is that it goes away when ever there is a problem in the line..fortunately,we rarely have such issues..

    That's nothing compared to the grace with which he choked in the final after, no wonder Nadal fans love this match so much.

    :) Best match of last year, despite not even being nominated for Tennis Channel's Top 30 (luckily, their U.S. Open encounter, which was nearly as great, topped the list).

    You know I am in the metro "only". Did you think I was in Jhumri Tillaiya ;) I think I'll try out a cable connection for my room so i can see tennis matches at night and later decide if we should scrap Tata Sky altogether.

    Only advantage of TS is you can browse the schedule and set reminders. I guess I can live without that.

    I still love Federer's sour face and comments at the USO 2011 SF post match interview after losing 2 times in a row when having 2 matchpoints. Priceless.

    I'm not a Djokovic fan, but he played some phenomenal tennis last year. Good to watch.

    don't ask me about installation and dish, can't remember. but i pay 1000 rupees every 2.5 to 3 months.

    I have a base package plus Star/ESPN plus Ten Sports and now Neo Sports and Neo Cricket.

    Yes, I am thinking of seriously giong in for cable, but after WO/Oly.

    Considering the fact you run only 1 t.v,paying 1000 rupees seems quite a lot..I don't know the rates in Delhi,but i guess it would be some where around 300 rupees per month..
