Finally, ESPN cannot show any live women's matches today



I should say that there is a high probability that they will not show it and it will not have an American playing.

I am really sick of watching women's tennis on ESPN.

Need ideas for a new signature...

I've noticed that over the years ESPN really loves to show Mauresmo's matches. She and Sharapova both get as much coverage as an American.

This afternoon they showed Serena's loss. Tonight they are supposed to show the tape of Hingis 3rd round .

Will they ever show Federer? Maybe not unless he gets to the final.

I'll be pissed if they don't show his match live since they've done it with the women and Hewitt too. The schedule says taped basketball. Hopefully that's wrong.

Re: Finally, ESPN cannot show any live women's matches today

their schedule says they're showing fed vs. max tomorrow afternoon so far they haven't shown a match of his when they said they would, and certainly nothing close to a complete match like they have for most of the other top men and women. their coverage has been awful and totally unbalanced between men and women. i guess it can only go up from here

Re: Finally, ESPN cannot show any live women's matches today

they'll show Roger tomorrow, who else would they show? With both Williamses out and only one US Man left, they'll be showing other people, obviously. It'll be interesting to see what they show tonight b/c not all that much is going on that they'd typically cover.

The timing (10pm EDT) is just right for them to show the Haas match in its entirety.

Re: Finally, ESPN cannot show any live women's matches today

They have been advertising Roger's match for Noon on Saturday. That is a bit of an honor since that's a major time slot for ESPN.

But is Women's tennis more popular than Men's tennis? Because ESPN has focused more on Women's tennis.

Have their schedules ever been right? All I know is they showed Hewitt/Chela live early in the morning. And of course Serena and Hingis too. So there's no reason they can't do the same for Roger.

But haven't they shown matches or parts of matches during the day that they showed live the night before?

Roger's match does not start at 7:30 pm Australian time so they won't show it live. It is the second match of the night.

nope, taped women's matches. Go figure
