    Mark Your Calendars - May 17th

    On May 17th 2009 - The All England Tennis Club will present two Grand Events.

    The unveiling of their new Retractable Roof on Centre Court and for this ground-breaking event the All England Club decided to have a show befitting the occasion by inviting none other than a Women's Single's Match featuring Steffi Graf vs Kim Cjlisters in one match followed by (If that were not good enough) a Doubles Match featuring Tim Henman / Kim Cjlisters vs Mr & Mrs Andre & Stephanie Agassi.
    The only acceptable loss is when your opponent was better than you on that given day.
    It is never acceptable to lose when your opponent was not.

    Gang ~

    I never thought about whether it would be aired or not. Now you all have me very worried. I suppose worse case scenario, YouTube will have something but I don't get clear reception on YouTube.

    I must hunt down the answer to this and get back to you

    Could you record it on DVD and maybe make it available to whom ever wants to see it? I know I'd pay you for your effort Harwin

    TennisW.Com --- So sorry, I don't have a DVD recorder, only a Player. I shall no doubt record it on a tape in case I should miss the BBC 2 transmission.

    In all my years of watching tennis at Wimbledon and On-line, I have never seen the Centre Court looking so magnificent ! It is said that the Centre Court at Queen's Club London is the best grass court in the world, but I do think it is now 2nd best to Wimbledon. I hope you were all able to watch the event yesterday (Sunday) .

    Actually I missed it as well due to having a Family Reunion and I forgot to record it but the Tennis Channel will undoubtedly air it again. We may have to wait a while but I'll check their schedule. You might look on TTC Website and see if they have a video of the event.


    For anyone that missed it such as myself, you may see it here

    Talking Graf for wildcard

    Watching Steffi play was great her form was superb.
    I think she could compete on the doubles tour still!
