How many matches will ESPN show tomorrow?

In my guide (DirecTV) I'm only seeing one match - 10pm to 12pm on ESPN2, which I'm assuming is the Federer/Blake match. Aren't they going to show any of the afternoon matches?

I doubt it, They didn't even show Nikolay, a top ten player!, during Rogers cup, but chose to show re-plays of the old man

I want to have my evil way with Tommy Robredo

Re: How many matches will ESPN show tomorrow?

Yeah, but Roddick is playing tomorrow. Surely they'd show him? And I see the final will be on CBS not ESPN. I guess there must not be any other major sporting event going on that weekend.

Re: How many matches will ESPN show tomorrow?

Why are they showing Federer/Blake at 11pm est, when the schedule says not before 7:30pm est. Is it not going to be live?

They might be showing the Rogers cup which unless Justine is playing I could care less about

In my guide it doesn't show any tennis at all until 10 pm. But I guess PMac said they would be showing Andy tomorrow afternoon. But in the DirecTV program guide it shows world series of poker, karate, and lacrosse.

Re: How many matches will ESPN show tomorrow?

There was a schedule change. Of course they're going to come on to show Roddick.

They didn't do it for Nadal's semifinal... but Roddick's first round is top priority.

Re: How many matches will ESPN show tomorrow?

I don't get it...and then to not show Roger live so they can show little league baseball. I hope I'm wrong about that...but the oop says Roger's match should start at 7:30 pm, and the US Open Series website says ESPN's coverage begins at 11 pm.

Roddick/Melzer live in the morning, Federer/Blake taped in the evening.

Re: How many matches will ESPN show tomorrow?

Of course they'd show Andy live and Roger taped... They might as well not show him at all then. Of course we know everyone would rather watch little league baseball than a live tennis match. That's gotta be a huge ratings winner for them.

Nothing new to see Roddick on, but it's tennis so I won't compain too much. I don't really care for Melzer either, but it would be nice if he puts out some entertaining tennis.
