There weren't that many Americans last year either, and the coverage was awful. All kinds of stuff was taped, etc.
i mean today, they didn't show Lindsay as their first match - they only started showing her when she looked like she was gonna lose. Nadal seemed to be the more featured match. So I mean there's the World #1 who is an American who's on court, but they're showing a Spanish guy play a Belgian guy instead. I'm not sure that would've happened last year. They're doing a good job of putting attention on these more hyped up guys. I'm thrilled that we've gotten to see a lot of Gasquet too. So I think it's definitely better than last year.
I'm just saying I'll take 8 and a half hours of live tennis a day and deal with the little bit of taped at the end lol. This is now 2 slams in a row where the coverage is MUCH improved. I'd say that they ARE trying.
