I have no life watching tennis in the middle of the night by myself but it makes me happy
I like Kvitova. My mom's foster parents were Czech, and we have some Czech blood in us from the past. Plus I admire her for what she's been through.

I'll probably watch the replay of the men's final tomorrow though.

:eek: do you have any idea how many ppl will be watching the men's final across the world?! (hint: it's a lot)

i’ve browsed the tennis reddit a lot the past couple weeks during the tournament since they have live threads during the bigger matches. i’ve posted a little in those

the mturk reddit is pretty sad but I find the tennis reddit pretty entertaining

so many people online watch tennis but i dont know any in person people that like it

and about the men’s final - i expect a long punishing back and forth match. at least 4 sets

Hey C to the J, I was overseas in Asia and was able to do many hits that were not surveys a couple years ago. So it must just be surveys then right?
They've had a lot of foreign scammers on US accounts this last year.
It may have not been something that they cracked down on a few years ago but I'm certain it is now.
Surveys or batches wouldn't really matter.

Probably should find some int'l soccer fans to find more ppl willing to stay up late to watch sports in this time zone. Hell, there are probably a couple of sports bars that serve that crowd that are open for this match, if you look around. I don't have personal exp w/ that but it's certainly possible given Houston's diversity and how ppl time-shift during the World Cup.

We actually used to have a member here that had that happen to her. I don't remember her name, but she was from the US and on a US account, but she was living in England. They ended up suspending her account after like a month or two.
