Looks like streaming will start in the second round.

Yes, Already it knew it, but beside forgetting to put it already it knew that the streaming began in 2 round

So that should be Friday.
By then some of the riff raff will be carted off the grounds.  :cool:

The build up to the business end of things seems a tad slow, and as you point out Swish livestreams are thin on the ground. I rely on TennisTV.Com, which will start coverage on the 22nd March.  I note it will not be available in the US. 
 
If I can, I'd like to see the Nieminen/Nalbandian & Goffin / Haase matches today.

Here is the daily schedule for the 21st March:

Djokovic needs a cheeseburger. He has like 0 body fat.

 

No cheeseburgers!  He looks great as is.  He is a Big Guy, but he is lean, all muscle.  Next to him is Leyhani, a guy who ordinarily looks a little big and soft, but you can see his girth is not as great as Nole's.  I wouldn't want to see Nole's muscle replaced with fat!  Ick!  But, seriously, we could all use a better SPF plan.  Wrinkles are bad news.

Gulbis didn't get the WC he asked for, and seriously, if you had to play qualies to get into this tourney after the amount and quality of matches he's played lately, you'd have taken a pass too.  If anyone deserved a WC it's Gulbis, not that silly Harrison younger sib.  Or Harrison the elder for that matter.  I'd have love to have seen Gulbis here, but I wouldn't want him to do qualies just to get into the main draw.  He will be straight in to MC I think, and he should rightly focus himself there.

Quite so, Clay Death.  Nieminen came back from a set down & being 2 games down in the second set to win it.  DN out early yet again.

I couldn't watch the Goffin/Haase match - hopefully I'll find a link.

Results for Thursday 21st March:

Friday promises some good matches & livestream too.  My one to watch is Dolgopolov / Davydenko, and I'd like to see how Del Potro is playing too.

Schedule for Friday 22nd March :

I can finally watch some tennis!  Del Potro / Kamke.  Going with serve, but Kamke under enormous pressure in holding his second service game. Early days.

D-P finding his momentum, getting the break to go up 4-2. Holding serve & Kamke trying to hold to avoid losing the set. Under pressure, 15-30. But he holds serve, 3-5.

Edit:  Wow! Superb play by Kamke to break back! He is serving 4-5.

I've noticed that Kamke has some game. Though he lost, I did pick him to beat Stan at the AO. Delpo doesn't have the best stamina, so this stoppage has got to be huge for him.

Also, Miami is considered the South American Slam, so he should definitely feed off the crowd.

Kamke handling Delpo's slice BH and now outslugging Delpo. Long rallies with no fineness. They're both hammering the ball.

Kamke 7-6, 3-0

Kamke is playing very intense, but this looks suspiciously like a tank
