Last year was my last year watching Tennis but I decided that if Rafael Nadal was going to play in the Olympics I would watch but this is way too complicated (the schedule is out and he was not on it so i found his page and it says he will play at 10:00 tomorrow - it will not be on tv + it is not announced anywhere online).

This does not surprise me at all because I never was able to watch any of my Tennis players in the Olympics, it was never on television and nowhere on the internet either.

This sucks but at least like that I will not be helping these crooks by watching these Olympics.

He should not even play since his writs is not completely healed (unless he said that to mess with the others and the media but that is not his type to do this).

I will be able to see him afterall cool!

He will play tomorrow against Federico Delbonis from Argentina on court 1 (ridiculous but he always has been disrespected like that even when he plays in his country) and their match is second. The play starts at 11:00 which is 12:00 here so I will get up at 10:00.

It is announced on a channel (if the first match of center court is done then they should go to court 1 after since they do not like to show women except that witch Bouchard so if thats the case i could see at least parts of the match on tv) and on the internet.

Yeah grin!

This will not be easy to watch! It took me forever to get the match before his and it freezes in addition of having awful images plus there's the logo of CBC but it's not even on any of these channels and not on their website either!

He won cool!

I had to watch it entirely on the internet, it was all normal technical issues except that I did miss the end of one point.

Next is Andreas Seppi from Italy.

He won his second round against Andreas Seppi and I was able to watch it completely on television cool!

I don't know what happened though on that centre court; I got up one hour before it started since he was third and when my morning routine was done it was less than one hour after the play had started and it was the start of the second set of the second match crazy!

I just figured out why it seemed to go too fast the previous two matches, I made a mistake with the time difference! crazy! I calculated it correctly the first time but did not for today blush! Good thing I did not miss my match thanks to that stupidity eek!

There's a big delay today. Rain. Earlier they took away the match before his. Now it's just to wait until it all stops and the court is ready.

Most of today's matches have been postponed and that includes Ralfie's, the rain has not stopped so I doubt the few others (6 total) will not be too.

The weather looks nice so far and it's supposed to stay that way. Today will be all the matches that were supposed to happen yesterday.

Oh the joy of watching Tennis in Canada crazy, right now the match before his is on one channel but these idiots are not live (it was the end of the third game of the first set when they went there so not that late) and they are showing another men match that is live on other channels so who knows if Ralfie's quarter final will be on television and if so entirely or not!

He won cool!

That crowd was awful to him (sure he was playing against a Brazilian but being a fan and wanting someone to win over someone else does not mean you can act like a savage) and then they cheered him when he won crazy that is New York and Montreal level right there!

I had to jump from my television chair to computer chair a few times mad hopefully the coverage tomorrow will be like the second and third round!

Nadal has his first gold, men's doubles, dropped out of the mixed, and facing tough semi against DelPo who is now healthy and playing very well.

It is nice that he won the gold for doubles. I never got into doubles so I never followed that, I did not even made an exception last year when Andy Roddick played doubles for one tournament.

I do not know by first gold you meant this year, if not then you are mistaken because he won the gold in 2008, the last time he could not play due to an injury.

He lost cry! The first four points and the fourth game was not on television and I missed all of that because that match did not work at all on any of the feeds plus they came back late for the fourth game of the last set and I missed the start of that first point mad!

If he plays until the US Open I will watch, on September 9 I have a big day (if he plays on that day i will be able to watch no problem and if he makes the final too - i do not know if these idiots are still making the men play semi finals on saturday and if so and if he makes it that too i will be able to watch), I'll see what this will bring me and depending I may watch more Tennis one last time after that. Cincinnati has started and he is supposed to go there but I hope he lets that tournament go because he looked half dead today.
