ESPN Coverage Defies Sanity

Can anyone tell me why they would be showing Roddick/Verdasco in the second set, when FEDERER/SAFIN are at 4-4 in the third?????

This is ludicrous.

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.
BOO: Puerta, Davydenko, Kiefer, Ljubicic, Canas and all the DOPERS.

There is also a very special place in my heart for the three greatest WTA players of all time ---- Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, and Monica Seles!!!

Yeah, they should have shown the whole Fed Safin match.

Re: ESPN Coverage Defies Sanity

We've seen Federer destory people countless times 6-1 in the first, mainly because safin was making errors.

I cannot stand Djokovic
NEW YORK METS

I'm an American who loves clay tennis and the clay season...what is wrong with that picture?

Re: ESPN Coverage Defies Sanity

ESPN has a tough job. A lot of big names are playing at the same time and their best course is to split time between them all rather than show one match in its entirety.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: ESPN Coverage Defies Sanity

They should have shown the roddick match live (I mean, in the USA anyway) and shown the Federer match taped.
You can't win them all. If they show bits of each, then people are upset. If they show one taped, then the taped-fans are upset. Alternatively, you should all move to Europe and get it on Sky or SF1 or BBC Sports (not that they don't have their own share of issues!)

Re: ESPN Coverage Defies Sanity

No what defies sanity is when seeds like Djokovic and Jankovic are playing LIVE and ESPN is showing us Blake & Sharapova on TAPE. :retard:

They were doing you a favour, the Federer/Safin match wasn't that great.

unfortunately I can't use espn360, for some reason my internet provider won't let it work.

so I guess I should really be mad at my internet provider.

Everyone at ESPN are IDIOTS!!

They think Sequera getting buried in her match with Williams is a great tennis match that they need to repeat 20 times
