    Best Web site for Live Tennis action

    Is there an alternative to Livescore (http://www.livescore.net) when following tennis matches please? As I write I am trying to keep tabs on the Svetlana Kuznetsova/Ana Ivanovic play and Livescore’s data is 3 whole games behind the best alternative I can find at short notice; that being Betoto’s (http://www.betoto.com) ‘Live Play’ Java application.

    FYI...I just had probably my worst experience of Livescore to date. I was following the Leyton Hewitt/Philipp Kohlschreiber match in Adelaide. It just updated 3 times; once to show that Kohlschreiber had won the first set (6-3), twice to show that Hewitt had leveled the match (6-0) then the final update (6-3, 0-6, 7-5) to show that Kohlschreiber had taken the match.

    I was desperately trying to find a Web site (not even Betoto could help me this time, nor the official tourney site) that was webcasting the score live, but I just couldn’t see anything.

    I always have WTAworld or menstennisforums open when I have money on a tennis match, go into the specific tourney's OOP (Order of Play) Thread and there is usually somebody who has the match on locally who is giving point by point updates. You can also sift through the Betfair forums for the same info sometimes. I think these are your best options if you do not have the Tennis Channel.

    Great advice OWNED. I just popped onto Betfair’s forum (which truly is a mine of useful information) where there were people relaying messages from telephone conversations regarding the Adelaide tourney.
    Your other advice (about checking out WTAworld or menstennisforums) is sound too and much appreciated. Thank you!
