Anybody else remember the days when ESPN was a fledgling network and broadcast all kinds of silly things (that I
actually happened to like) like badminton and bowling and billiards (before it became the rage)? They'd have one camera and often no commentary. Personally, I'd love some tennis TV coverage like that. It'd truly make me feel like I was in the stands. And I wouldn't have to listen to all the stupid comments the 'experts' make. I'm always tempted to put the TV on mute but I like hearing the sounds of the match (ball striking, the players...when they're not grunting too loud, the crowd, the umpire's calling of the score).
