Does anyone have a website for streaming video of the Legg Mason tournament? I have been bad about keeping up with the good sites to use, and I am concerned about channelsurfing and malware.

Since ESPN coverage doesn't start until Friday, I'd like to be able to see as much as I can tonight and tomorrow. I'm anxious to see if new Roddick or Roddick classic shows up.

Oh, Frankie... you have a great game.

New Roddick or Roddick Classic? At least he sounds like he's over his injury. Go Andy!

Matthew said...

I take this to mean that nobody is watching the Legg Mason tournament online? A shame, there are some good match-ups!

Matthew said...

Holy crud - Andy Roddick and Sam Querrey are racing to see who can beat their opponents faster. Both up a set and a break - Roddick has two! - and each is winning more than 80% of their points on serve. Each match is only 45 minutes old.

And they're going to play each other in the next round? Wow.

Matthew said...

Roddick wins the race as Querrey gets stuck in a long return game where he finally breaks - on about the sixth chance - and then gives his serve right back for the first time in the match. That's why it's an insurance break!

And now Isner and Tsonga are up? Geez, I wish I could be watching this.

Craig Hickman said...

Me too, Matthew. I just don't have the time right now.

Oh man! What a time to call the matches on account of rain.

Tursenov and ... whoever he was played, tied at 5-all in the third set. And Isner-Tsonga tied at 3-all in the third set tiebreak!

I don't know for sure, but I get the feeling that Isner got screwed - he was up a minibreak, 3-2 and serving, and he dropped a double fault just before the match was called. I have to assume that the rain had to have something to do with that double.

It'll be interesting to see what happens when the match picks up - this would be a huge win for Isner if he can pull it off. He's only four points away!
