Too much swimsuit modeling with Sports Illustrated will do that to a tennis starlet.

It is called Women's Doubles and I'm sure that Maria and Anna on the court together would delight men everywhere :lol: As for me I don't like either one of them :D

I just looked at the article. I think that D* is going to put the channel on the CHOICE XTRA package or above. It says that when the full-time channel launches in late summer, it will reach an audience of 8 million. I could be wrong, but that is what it sounds like.

You are probably correct as the article says it will be on " a base tier".
