I was unable to spot the link in your message. Probably because it's neither large nor brightly-colored enough.

I am highly suspect of this website.
Take a look at the links for the downloads and it is a "click for money" type of deal for the web host person.

I did not click any of the links on the website and I will never click on any of those links.

Going a bit off topic here, but...

there was once a documentary/movie on tennis, called the Journeymen (i think). It featured Philipoussis, Agassi, Sampras I think...

Has anyone heard of it?

Hello,

I'm the owner of the website and I can assure you that I do not gain any money with the site, on the contrary, it takes a lot of effort and uploading costs.
The reason I used the record_clicks_mu.php is of course to determine the estimated expiry time on Megaupload and to check from which places people get on the site.
BTW you can get the source on request.
If you want it I can post all the updates to this thread.

It's all for the fans...

Guys, I really suggest you don't download from those links. If you see what you are downloading (.exe files) they can contain viruses and worms when activated.

The owner could've even put a keylogger into those exe files and you know waht that means? That means it goes into the computer and whatever you type, he has recorded and if it is a password say, your bank account or other important passwords, he can steal anything!

If you actually tried one of the files you would see that these are self extracting RAR files, nothing wrong with them and if you don't want to click on them fine, then just use WinRAR.
It's just to make it easier for people. If you want to miss out on the video files, fine.

I've seen it. I liked it. They have it available on Netflix. Definitely only for the serious tennis fan, but if you're posting here you probably qualify.

Hey Rottweily, I'm really having trouble watching any of the videos.

I downloaded the Henin-Sharapova Dubai match and got the mkv file but it doesn't play properly. I played it in Vlc player but only the audio plays. The video freezes on the very first image which is the image of the main draw.
I downloaded the community codec thing and tried it in zoom player but the video is SUPER slow and freezes all the time such that you can't watch it either. It is the same with media player 10, media player classic, divx player.

Then I downloaded the Henin-Hingis Sydney match (after waiting 5 hrs because of megaupload's download limit) and after it extracted it gave me an error and told me to redownload the files.
Now I can't do this because megaupload won't let me download anything else until another 4 hrs.

The match I really want to watch is the Henin-Pova dubai match. I've pretty much seen the rest or not too interested.

Any help will be appreciated. Can you change the format or something?

It should play with VLC media player, otherwise you can try to convert it to some other format.
Are you using the latest VLC media player? What sort of PC do you have? To get good quality with reasonable size it takes CPU power.
The fastest player I know is this one: http://oss.netfarm.it/mplayer/builds/mplayer-p4-svn-21682.7z
Extract the file and drag and drop it on the mplayer.exe file.

BTW: Do you have a dynamic IP adress, if so just disconnect and reconnect you internet connection to change your IP and you can keep on downloading.

yeah, there was no video with vlc player, just audio. I suppose I have the latest vlc player. I just downloaded it yesterday. I have a compaq presario.
I'll try and convert it to an avi. Hopefully it works.

mhmm. thanks until you convert it to either rar or zip file with no exe files, I would rather "miss out on video files" thanks.

I was thinking the same thing.

To all that mentioned 'Journeymen', thanks. When I saw the thread title, that's what I was hoping for...

I try to help people, all you do is talk rubbish.
Again if there is interest, I can place an update thread on this forum.

If I keep on getting idiotic responses, this will be my last post and I refer to:

Okay, well, this one is more about a family that splits up, but there is a tennis storyline -- The Squid and the Whale, by Noah Baumbach, who also did Kicking and Screaming (not the crappy soccerdad movie) and Mr. Jealousy.

Jeff Daniels and Laura Linney. Billy Baldwin as the teaching pro. They use wooden sticks. Har-Tru in a bubble. The tennis is not that good, but it's a good movie.

EDIT: Okay, I just realized...this thread is not really about movies that have tennis in them. IT is about tennis matches on DVD, I guess. Oh well. Sorry for the interruption.

Can I go off the subject a little?

Does anyone know about a tennis game (PS2) which features the current players like Fed, Nadal, and others? I've been looking for such a game for my kids for while, but invain.

If not, then what is the most recent game which you may recommend? I have "Roland Garros 2005" , but it's borring.

I saw this movie and I thought it was funny. Although supposedly set in the 80's, they didn't bother paying attention to the fact that the scenes where they were driving around you could see the latest models of the cars lol. Entertaining nevertheless.
