It's different but it's quite fun so far - and they're playing it pretty seriously - not much of the exho in the actual play

was so funny when the umpire forgot there wasn't a let rule and instinctively called the let

I don't get the schedule. Are all four teams playing on the same day? Why is Federer not playing?

This is actually really fun thusfar
Yeah it better be when all those big names get dragged into the same event. It would be amazing if they somehow managed to make it not fun with players like Federer, Sampras, Agassi, Monfils, Ivanovic, Djokovic, Santoro etc etc etc.

actually I realise it makes sense only to list the 2 teams separately, since the captain can change who plays at any time almost, and also people can be subbed

This format is quite watchable. Though no part of it should ever make it to the tour. Good for exos still.

Kicker in the rules:

Power Point: The receiving player can call a Power Point once every set, indicating that the next point counts double.

^^ Thanks for the links...
Still I'll be giving this ultimately poor excuse of a money-grabbing exho a miss. At least I'll try. ;)

Can't watch it where I live? Aren't they showing it in Europe?
I tried to play the highlights videos on www.starsports.com and got access denied. Are there other ways to view the events without being there? Espn or tennis channel?
Proxy sites worked for me ;) I think its an Indian event and they've got some messed up broadcasting distribution over there according to some friends.

I couldn't find it on TTC or any of the American sport channels. I saw it was on pay per view (10 dollah). I had to work today so I didn't try it (I don't know if I would have anyway, but maybe?).

I live in the philippines and I was actually planning on going until I saw the ticket prices. They're showing it live in one of the major sports channels here so I decided to just watch at the comfort of my home..the matches are actually fun to watch and refreshing..i love how the shotclock rattles some players lol....despite the price, the even actually attracted a decent crowd...

It's an exho but the guys seem to be playing it pretty seriously - not just hit-and-giggle stuff. Great fun to watch though

Some of the matches in CTL were hotly contested too, Venus vs. Hingis, Lopez vs. Bag was a barnburner too. Players were going all out 110%. Seriously.
