Defending champion Jennifer Capriati is in deep trouble. She trails Martina Hingis in the Australian Open final by a set (6-4) and has lost the first four games of the second.

TV newscast on radio station

BEING a regular listener to Metro News since its initial broadcast in 1991, I note with shock and horror the news broadcast that I heard between 5 and 7pm on January 24.

Boost for Shum as old rival hits form

HONG KONG ace Andrew Shum Siu-chung has never beaten an ''established'' player but his confidence has been boosted by Billy Haddrell's achievement in the Australian Open a week ago.

Shum, who joined the professional ranks in 1989 but never really made the grade, beat Haddrell three years ago when the Australian was a relative newcomer to the circuit.

Tennis on STAR TV was 'ace'

WE write to commend Prime Sports of STAR TV for showing the Australian Open live for more than eight hours a day.

Our only slight disappointment was that the ladies' and men's single finals were delayed coverage. It is most exciting to watch tennis matches live on television.

Annoyed by Open coverage

I AM growing increasingly distressed and annoyed by the coverage the Australian Open has been receiving from Prime Sports.

I am very sporty, but I think tennis is incredibly boring to watch, especially when every single match gets televised.

This all stems from the fact that I sat at home last Saturday, not doing anything in particular.

Late call

STAR TV, what a good job you did with the live coverage of the Australian Open Tennis. That is until the finals, which you chose not to show live.
