Re: ESPN Classic showing tennis during AO

I just realized that's all in like the one day leading up to the AO.... maybe they'll show more during the second week of the tourney but those listings aren't up yet.

Re: ESPN Classic showing tennis during AO

Poo that I don't get ESPN Classic.

And ah yes, that Jen v. Martina match again. They never fail to show that one. It wasn't THAT great, IMO. Not the cleanest of tennis and a big choke job by the Swiss.

I don't even have it home.

I guess I can go the way of "mommy and daddy pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze order ESPN Classic for our cable"

Re: ESPN Classic showing tennis during AO

That Agassi/Sampras 2000 match is awesome. Tennis magazine called it more exciting than their USO2001 quarterfinal, and I'm inclined to agree... (i'm sure the winner has nothing to do with it, lol)

Agassi/Sampras 1995 is not quite as good, but still very entertaining. you get to see Andre as a pirate.

And of course that Rafter/Ivanisevic Wimbledon final is a total classic.

Canadian TV

For the Canadians:

ESPN Classic Canada also shows classic AO matches. Just last week I saw the Becker VS Chang final. It was 1996 I think. Watch out for some more during the weeks leading to AO 2004.

Re: ESPN Classic showing tennis during AO

happy to see these AO matches, but on a related note: Do they ever replay matches from the FRENCH open? I'm dying to rewatch Agassi/Medvedev 1999 and Seles/Graf 1992.

i dont think they have any rights to french open matches, actually. i know i've heard something about it...
they mainly show wimbledon (quite frequently) and australian open classics... sometimes a us open match, but both the others are shown more...

Re: ESPN Classic showing tennis during AO

Yea they don't have the rights to do so. I forgot why but I read somewhere that they aren't entitled to show the FO matches.

Re: ESPN Classic showing tennis during AO

oh ok well there's the answer then LOL!! Don't they show current FO though? I thought they showed the AO, FO, and Wimby (and USA has the rights to the USO). oh well.....

Re: ESPN Classic showing tennis during AO

yeah, that's why I asked about it ----ESPN does show the French, but they didn't show any classic matches last year like they did with the AO and Wimby. So probably jackson & faboo are right, it's an issue with the rights to the footage...
