Ferrer vs. Hrbaty on ESPN? Nope! Williams vs. Williams.... again.

This is like that time they showed Roddick's match three times.

It's just stupid. If you can't bother watching a match the first time, tough shit. You could tape it or SOMETHING.

I was looking forward to some great tennis tomorrow from players I like... and no Americans playing tomorrow! I should have known ESPN would find a way to ruin it.

Like this is a surprise from Extra Special Peon Network.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

on ESPN.com it says they're showing girls at 1pm, and then mens QF at 3pm (which would be hrbaty/ferrer) and then clijsters at 10pm...... no rafa

They showed more men than women at Indian Wells (since Davenport was the only prominent American woman playing) so they are probably trying to "make up" for it by showing more women this time.

The best thing for us tennis fans to do is buy all of the Williams sisters' "fashion" items in bulk. When their business takes off, then they will be convinced to retire from tennis and pursue their "fashion" interests full time. Then more TV time will be cleared for other players.

I can't believe how often they show replays when there are live matches going on

Go ESPN

"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."

Cliff Drysdale announced this, and I sat there anxiously awaiting the polka championships.

They're calling it an "encore presentation". Encore would imply it was something worth watching in the first place.
