^Here's a good article (http://opensource.si.com/2010/09/02/roddick-deserves-to-be-called-out-for-behavior/) on Roddick's behaviour by Jon Wertheim (Sports Aillustrated)

Thanks for that! The comments are an interesting read too.

Wozniacki just double bageled Chang - gotta admire her for stepping up to the #1 ranking here - more so than Safina did last year (or was it the year before - I can't remember now). Would love to see her and Sharapova meet in the 4th round - could be a good game.

And Gasquet is one set up against Davydenko - go Richie!!

Something is seriously wrong with my Mozilla, the L'Équipe live ticker is simply not updating itself... Does anybody have a link to another good live ticker, that doesn't need too much power? I am working with a grandpa-laptop here.

Oh God, Richie is now up 2 sets to love on the match fixer! :eek: Has anyone blown more leads in matches than our Richie? :( Please please Richie don't let us down this time.

I swore after the French Open and the loss to Murray I would never care about him again but God that backhand is just sooooo magnificent.

Allez Richie Allez (Allez does mean go in French doesn't it?)

This link is the official "live scores", but takes a lot of "power". However, click on Live Scores (middle right), and you'll get what you're looking for. A clean, auto-updating scoreboard that shouldn't be exhausting older laptops/browser versions.

You can use livescore.com and then click on tennis. Its very rudimentary. Doesn't have game scores but it does update after every game.

OMG! Can't believe Gasquet is two sets and a break up and winning so effortlessly. Surely he can't lose now. :shuffle

He normally starts choking when he gets the brek in the 3rd. No sign of it this time, yet! :eek:

FSU's PTPOTY (2008) Paul Henri's winning too! Unfortunately over another almost certainly :swoon: Frenchie. Oh well. Go Pauli!

Great tournament, so far, for Frenchmen, eh? I like 'em, so good show.

Hmmm, 2008? Note to self: "Initiate 2010 PTPOTY elimination contest, next week." Without RedSonja and sodapop around anymore, Fergus and I can surely, alas, maneuver a FurBeast victory. :puppet:

Two double faults before finally hitting a good serve to close out the match for Gasquet. :cheer2:

Fantastic game from Dickie Gasket! Davy was, OTOH, really out of sorts and missing badly. Strange match but definitely fun to watch with all those crazy bh passing shots by Gasquet. :cheer2:

ETA: What's going on with Cilic?! He made semis last year and now he's ousted in R2 (by Nishikori?!) BTW, that match as been going from 11 am till about now. :eek:

Just tap your foot a couple times to gimme a heads up, I'll follow your lead. :D

DICKIE!!!! :cheer2:
