The match went to Eurosport 2, but the streams were pretty good.
Yes, Masha DID slide somewhat!
ES2 now: Parra Santonja up a set on Petko. 62 23
Couldn't see Mashas match because I was at work but I'm happy she won.
Next Cibulkova and hope she can win it.
MUTUA MADRID OPEN
Eurosport2 replaing Masha's third set:
Ditto on the b-d. Here is Sunstreet: Sorry 'bout that.
Pretty much the same drill with Eurosport 2 today.

Gajdošová wins 36 63 63 in 1:47. :-"" Interesting--will remark on her thread later. Bartoli & Pavlyuchenkova up shortly.
Good news is that Wednesday, Eurosport will show two matches. BUT:
The bad news is that Sharapova's Wednesday match is likely too late for broadcast/streams & Zvonareva's may be too early! Dinara, however, plays Gorgeous & therefore will be seen.Wednesday 4th May Day 3 British Eurosport & HD 16:00-19:15 CEST (15:00-18:15 BST) (14:00 GMT)Manolo Santana (from 11.00hrs CEST) 10:00 BST (09:00 GMT)1.

Well, Vera & Alisa both got wasted --in the dark so we couldn't watch what might've gone down. Sorry, but the way things are shaping up this year, I won't automatically assume ANY Russian loss was fair unless we were allowed to see it! Take nothing away from Kvitova--Petra is playing fine & Vera isn't always. But see--now you just don't know: was the crook Cramer in the chair? Any more little "problems" with Vera's racquets, hunh?
Gotta be somewhat uneasy about Maria's match tonight--stuffed off after the guys with apparently (so far) no camera. See if anybody can get that "MarcaTv". I'm not inclined to download their FLV player as it appears to be bloacked in the States anyway.
No sign of stream. A bunch of us are in the Shoutbox (on first page of forum) with live scores. C'mon in!
Davaiii, Masha!!! ДАВАЙ РОССЙЯ!!!
Maria did not play at her best in the last 3 matches in Madrid. They were all a big struggle. Hopefully she will improve next week in Rome.
yeah so sad that Maria's run in Madrid had and end, she was down 0-4 in the second set and equlized it in 4-4, I thought she would comeback but unfortunately she didn't. At least she moved to Number 8 in the ranking. Let's see what will happem in Rome next week!I prefer that Victoria or Caroline win the tournament now that Maria is out, they are the other girls that I like. And you, who will you support now?
