It will be on FSN, but if you knew what happened last year with FSN-SW (Fishing fiasco during Roddick / Federer match) you would rather stick to streams.
As far as I can see, Fox will show daily from 4-7 and 10 ish to 2:30 am ish (eastern times). Not too bad all things considering. They're of course also obligated to show the WTA, so coverage will be a mixed bag. At the same time, since there are no WTA streams, it's a good thing they're showing some WTA.

I don't mind too much.
 
We do care. Glad they're doing well - they weren't ahead when I checked livescores earlier.

Thanks!
Interestingly enough, this is only the second doubles in which either Nalbandian or Del Potro played this year and they have not played together. As you probably know doubles really is a team game so they must really fit well together. On serve 3-3 in the second set. Amazing.

Simon/Ljubicic next. Good luck to Simon, but he'll have to play a little better than he did last time.

Ana up a break and set, so hopefully she can finish up quickly. Then we can enjoy Roger.

Why does Roger have so much trouble with Karlovic's serve when A-Rod's is faster? Is it because he's taller and the angle it's coming from?

Congrats to Nalby! Hope this translates into good stuff for this singles matches as well.

Watching Simon/Ljubicic as well. A very listless match.

Dr. Ivo one minibreak up. Playing Karlovic is like tossing a coin. He has always a 50% chance of winning the match, no matter who is at the other side of the net.

Fed takes one MB back, 3-3.

It is always close with Ivo, it just amounts to a staring contest during the TB. Whoever blinks first loses.
 
Pretty good match by Karlovic. I don't understand this guy. He went pro at 21, then stayed in the 200's until he was 24. Then was in the 100's for the next four years and got to the 50's at age 28. And to the top 20's last year at age 29. Is he going to play singles as long as Agassi?

I'd love to stay up for Tsonga but it's getting too late D:

Dissapointed Simon went out in straights too D:

Ljubicic serve was on fire, and he was attacking the net well today too. Backhand also gave Simon lots of trouble; Ljubicic was able to open up the court and gun it DTL all day.

Cilic serving for the set against Robredo, looking pretty good today, not too many UEs.

Edit: and the moment I write this Cilic implodes, starts to spray balls around and gets broken back. I should market my services as pro jinxer.

From 5-3 to 5-6, Robredo will serve for the set. I won't elaborate, I don't think is fair from me to interfere in the result of the match. :p

Cilic goes down. My brackets are so totally screwed. I like Robredo alright, but I was hoping for good things for Cilic.

Hope Tsonga/Andreev is entertaining. And Tsonga please win. I can't have you losing as well.

Robredo had a great start of the season, he could come back to the top 10 this year playing like this.
It will be interesting to see him play against Murray on these courts.
Robredo will not concede Murray many unforced errors so Murray will need to play a bit more aggressive than he has been doing this week. Robredo leads the head to head 2-0, both wins on hardcourts but the last one was in 2007.

Great match between Cilic & Robredo. Well deserved win for Robredo!
How was it great? I saw a lot of unforced errors from both sides. Especially frustrating to watch was Cilic's inside-out forehand errors. He was missing those by 2-3 metres at times.

Great in that it was much more competitive than any other match I saw today. Yes, plenty of UE's on both sides, but exciting to watch until the end nonetheless.
