I've been following the Australian Open, and have been generally falling asleep listening to matches from Down Under being broadcast on ESPN3, the online service of ESPN. I saw last night's riveting match where Sloane Stephens defeated Serena Williams. Tonight (tomorrow afternoon in Melbourne) is the women's semi-finals. When I got home, I discovered that ESPN has the semi-finals and finals blacked-out on ESPN3 unless you also have a cable or satellite television subscription. Phooey! I doubt I'll be able to convince the people who seem to be living in the TV lounge at this apartment building to watch tennis.

Oh, well, I can at least hear the match calls on AO Radio.
