Semi-Final
Rafa Nadal versus Andy Roddick
Friday, April 2, 2010
1:00 p.m.
Stadium Court
I cannot figure out if it will be on TV
This is just confusing: tv-listings-search.cox
My TV remote says 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. will have the women's match on FSN/CSN.
So, I would recommend counting on watching it online.
I noticed today, that it said this, too,
but the men's QF (Verdasco and Berdych) match was on.


The Woes of Being a Tennis Fan
It is difficult to take that The Tennis Channel and FSN/CSN didn't air the Quarter final match of Rafa and Tsonga tonight.

I registered my complaint to The Tennis Channel:

Subject: Absolutely Poor Programming on TTC
Email address: programminginfo@thetennischannel.com

Dear The Tennis Channel,

I have waited a long time for The Tennis Channel to be available to my cable company in Rhode Island.

And now, that I have it finally this spring, I cannot believe that our own USA Sony Ericsson Open Miami tournament Quarter Final is not being carried live on TTC. This is an outrage. How can you call this good programming? Rafa Nadal and Tsonga in this QF and TTC is not showing it. Just ridiculous. Tennis gets no respect. No other major sport gets this kind of dismissive coverage.

Thank you for your kind consideration to this complaint.

Sign the Petition:
Sudan sham 2010

United States, stop supporting the sham April 2010 elections in Sudan. In a climate of violent political intimidation and with millions disenfranchised in camps, there cannot be credible elections in Sudan. Our support gives the Government of al-Bashir, indicted on war crimes and crimes against humanity, legitimacy it does not deserve. It is a waste of American taxpayer money, and non-credible elections will fuel violence and divisions in a country that is already on the brink.

Obama Administration, engage at the highest level in bringing lasting peace, protection, and justice to Sudan, now!
