New thread for the US open.

Raahh Mon 25-Aug-14 18:16:18

I'm not completely sure about Marion, but I found this

that appears to confirm she is.

Congratulations to Marion, if it is the case.

ah, so it seems then. congrats indeed.

Bloody Murray, its excruitiating watching the Brits play, they drag the matches out so much.

worse one to watch was Henman.

Hi smile just back from holiday in time for the tennis!

Mama1980 Mon 25-Aug-14 19:52:59

Anyone watching Murray? I can't find the match.

PetiteRaleuse Mon 25-Aug-14 20:00:52

Which channel is it on?

Raahh Mon 25-Aug-14 20:05:42

Probably on Sky- I'm just refreshing scores on the US websitegrin

Raahh Mon 25-Aug-14 20:09:27

Looks like Murray could soon be out. Can't say I'm surprised. His form hasn't been great, either before he won Wimbledon last year, or since.

Raahh Mon 25-Aug-14 20:10:58

Haase has broken back.

I can go and make my coffee nowgrin

Raahh Mon 25-Aug-14 20:14:18

That should have been 'Murray has broken back' grin

Hello all smile

Just checking in on the new thread.

PetiteRaleuse Mon 25-Aug-14 20:20:33

Not on mainstream French TV either. I only have British freeview here. Oh well.

Raahh Mon 25-Aug-14 20:33:13

Murray has won- but he didn't seem that convincing.

Stan on soon- he'll want to do better than he did at the French and Wimby, Djok up much later- don't think i will be awake for thatgrin

Raahh Mon 25-Aug-14 23:36:24

i have just discovered (not as late as i usually discover these things)grin that i have Eurosport, and it is currently showing the US open. Unfortunately, it is showing the earlier Halep match. I really like Halep- but SHOW SOMETHING LIVE, DAMMIT grin

Raahh Mon 25-Aug-14 23:39:34

And i see Raonic is doing well. 2 easy sets so far. I'm warming to Roanic, even if he does look like the Sesame street count. Or Mr Smithers off the Simpsons grin. I would really like him to go far.

Raahh Tue 26-Aug-14 00:16:15

And Milos has it.

I should go to bed really. Evil mother that I am, I have signed ds up to spend the next 4 days at a summer school at his new secondary. The downside is making sure we are all up in timegrin.

AnyoneForTARDIS Tue 26-Aug-14 17:00:42

why is it as soon as commentators say a British player will have an easy match they don't?!?

just STFU.

i missed most of yesterday, as I was ill.

I will do better today. grin

JuanPotatoTwo Wed 27-Aug-14 16:24:51

Bust a Gut through unfortunately.

JuanPotatoTwo Wed 27-Aug-14 16:31:50

Pot has done the Ice bucket challenge. What I wouldn't give to help dry him off grin

JuanPotatoTwo Wed 27-Aug-14 17:07:42

Can anyone less stupid than me figure out how to unsubscribe from Eurosport Player? It's one of those deals where you keep paying until you cancel your subscription, and I can't for the life of me figure out how to do it. I'm on a Samsung tablet if that makes any difference. Thank you.

AnyoneForTARDIS Wed 27-Aug-14 17:11:14

Juan I just googled Eurosport tennis news page and keep that on 'my favourites'.

don't know about player though.

I miss Delpo too!

have to say I loved Venus' dress but hated Serenas.

and even though Im not that way inclined I am having a wee girly crush on Petra Kvitova!! Think it cos shes so pretty and I wish I looked like her! tennis
