    In women's tennis I find it even more enjoyable to just listen to the sound rather than watch the picture.

    Am I a pig for saying that?

    Absolutely not, in fact, I wouldn't even recognize Brittney Spears walking down the street unless she had a red MUTE sign at her feet.

    Rob,
    You gotta get a set that doesn't say MUTE if you turn the volume down. You might miss some juicy bits behind those letters. [​IMG]

    Did anyone actually watch this? I saw the mixed double match. I saw games 2-4 of the first set. I had to turn it off after that. I assumed it was just a charity match or something. Anna's partner was miked and was trying to be a comedian. I'm not sure what the set up was but It was absolutly horrible to me. Tennis & Comedy?!!! Are you kiddin' me?!!!! The guy was totally unfunny at any level. He wasn't even that good of a tennis player. Maybe I was watching something else. I felt sorry for Seles and even Anna. They had to have been saying "What the heck am I doing here?". I hope it was for a good cause.

    I'd prefer to see Serena's lovely, juicy butt on HDTV.
