We're Ready For An Exciting Saturday At The BNP Paribas Open

Good morning/afternoon!

Matt and I are posted up in the media room in the closest unclaimed seat to the lone power outlet and we're ready for an exciting day of tennis.  Today is the first day of action to feature more than two or three tennis players we're familiar with, so we're very excited to see what the sport's superstars have in store for us on this gorgeous Saturday in the second-largest tennis stadium in the world.

We're already in a great mood after our Kentucky Wildcats won a potential tournament-clinching basketball game on Senior Day, now it's time to devour a yogurt parfait from the cafeteria and get ready for a long day of Masters 1000 tennis.

Madison Keys and Samantha Stosur open things up in the first match of the day on the big stage, followed by John Isner and Lleyton Hewitt in the never-ending tale of America versus Australia.  If it were up to us, the winning nation would be awarded Keith Urban's citizenship.  But I'm not sure we have that kind of pull, yet.

We'll check back with you soon after a brief meeting with our new co-workers from Tennis Channel.
