That commentator yesterday sucked. He must've said 50 to 100 times that Jankovic was blowing her nose and absolutely must be a bit under the weather Plain

WTA or generally the broadcaster should really refrain from showing the outside of the stadium. That smog ain't no pretty sight and it certainly doesn't make me think of going there because it's so beautiful.

With the technology today, you'd think they could show old footage from 2008 or something.

Can't help with that. I always watch on 365. Need to have at least 0.01 in whatever your currency is though.

Very reliable as they actually care about people watching and not looking dumb (except for that Anna Livadaru thing)

thx edy, checked all those + some other players but didn't find anyone with more than 7, matchstat only has stats from 2000 though so possible that sugiyama had a run before that that I missed. Maybe I should email WTA and they can have their intern (the one who had to look up when the last time 3 top 10 ranked players won a tourney in the same week) have a look at it.
