Accidentally filled up the last thread without realising.

Have the day off today so can sit and watch the tennis scores update.

We still have tennis tennis too.

I have a (totally unfounded wine fuelled theory re- the demise of the [tennis]).

It was still there until Murray announced his surgery. Then- pfft. Because obviously no Murray= no[tennis]. hmm

I am probably wrong, but I like a conspiracy theorygrin

I like a good conspiracy theory too. That theory works for me.

So, It's finals day. Allez Tsonga.

ClayDavis Sun 22-Sep-13 14:47:18

It' not looking good for Tsonga.

Raahh Sun 22-Sep-13 15:32:16

sad

Poor Tsonga.

Still, well done Simon, and at least Jo-Willy is back in the saddle.
Next week, Ferrer/Wawrinka are in action in Kuala Lumpur, and Berdych/Gasquet in Bangkok.

Not on their own, obviously. grin

<tired>

I am having trouble making sense of the Malaysian open site. I might look later when I'm more awake.grin

ClayDavis Mon 23-Sep-13 22:42:15

Did you have any luck with the Malaysian Open site, Raahh? As far as I can make out today was qualifiers and the first round proper starts tomorrow.

JuanPotatoTwo Mon 23-Sep-13 23:11:16

What were you looking for on the Malaysian site Raahh? Can we help? I'm wildly excited - I've just discovered that fans can go and watch practice sessions at the ATP finals!! They haven't published the training schedule yet, and I've no idea where the sponsors village is in the O2 - but these are obstacles I can surmount!

ClayDavis Mon 23-Sep-13 23:20:34

Do you need tickets? Otherwise that sounds like an obstacle I can surmount.

Having posting issues tonight. Not sure if this will post or not.

JuanPotatoTwo Mon 23-Sep-13 23:24:47

I don't think so Clay. This is all the info I've got at the moment:

ClayDavis Mon 23-Sep-13 23:38:41

That's just after I get back from holiday so not sure if I'll be able to get more time off work or back up to London.
BUT turns out I'll be in Istanbul for the WTA finals. That might work if I can get tickets.

Raahh Tue 24-Sep-13 09:55:10

Well, I finally managed to get my internet to stop playing up.

I like time difference, it means that when I get up, matches are nearly starting or in progress. Much more civilised than US time scalesgrin.

I gave up on yesterday, as I was stupidly tired, and dh was off- so ended up going for a 4 hour 'nap' grin. I obviously needed it.

malaysia order of play

Ferrer on later vamos !

ClayDavis Tue 24-Sep-13 10:05:09

Sadly, I will be at work, sitting around doing nothing with no internet.

Have found tickets for the WTA tour finals. They're quite reasonably priced at 30-70 Turkish Lira for the first 3 days which is about £9-£20

Raahh Tue 24-Sep-13 12:43:14

ok- now I'm confusedconfused

the order of play seems to be for the 25th?

I know they are ahead of us time wise, but what happened to the order of play for today?

[tennis]

JuanPotatoTwo Tue 24-Sep-13 14:43:02

That's exciting Clay - the fact you have Istanbul tickets, not the fact you can't make O2 practice sessions.

Raahh - glad you got a well earnt nap, I reckon one of those every day for the next few months will see you right!

I can't find the order of play for today either.

ClayDavis Tue 24-Sep-13 17:51:15

Got the tickets. Right at the front grin. Might need to remember to take ear plugs with me. Hopefully won't get shrieky.

ClayDavis Tue 24-Sep-13 22:37:15

Tomorrow's order of play.

Raahh Wed 25-Sep-13 14:31:30

Ferrer safely through -vamos!

ClayDavis Wed 25-Sep-13 21:13:47

Vamos Ferrer. Looks like Berdych and Gasquet are doing well in Bangkok as well.

JuanPotatoTwo Thu 26-Sep-13 16:50:49

That's exciting Clay about the tickets.

Wawrinka and Benneteau both through in Malaysia. I was looking at the availability of tickets for the gala after the ATP finals - tables available for £400/head! Any takers?!

JuanPotatoTwo Thu 26-Sep-13 19:25:30

Aww, Djok and Jelena engaged!

Raahh Thu 26-Sep-13 19:42:07

I know- 8 years they've been together. And 100 weeks at number 1- so a good week for Novakgrin

JuanPotatoTwo Thu 26-Sep-13 20:51:27

Think we'll be invited to the wedding?!
