Re: rant: why are they showing safina when ferrer is ranked higher .......

USA planned the Arthur Ashe matches, they were given these matches after CBS demanded the Williams' and Nadal this afternoon. Thankfully, USA did show much of the del Potro/Simon match, although I am just BURNING that they are not showing Ferrer/Nishikori. What a barn burner!

cuz she's considered to be the player in best form at the moment, even though its 100% certain she will choke the final if she reaches it?

Those Safina's "C'Mon!" after each won point are so annoying

Yeah, bwin has it for quite a few matches. That's how I watched Murray - Melzer, and Wawrinka - Cipolla tonight.

Re: BBC/Eurosport/Sky Sports/ESPN/ Etc - Coverage, Moan Thread!

Did I miss anything or did Eurosport really didn't show any on court interviews yet? Last year we got at least a few of the afternoon session. Of course, we didn't get to see the Nishikori interview either, although I'd have really liked to hear what he has to day.

I know that it's a rights issue and we should probably blame the host broadcaster instead of Eurosport, but it's still very disappointing.

Yep, bwin.com. There is a live video. But in order to watch, you must register there. And the live video is available in the livebet section.

Re: BBC/Eurosport/Sky Sports/ESPN/ Etc - Coverage, Moan Thread!

So apparently the day session for Arthur Ashe on Labor Day predictably includes Fish/Monfils, Rafa/Querrey, and Venus/Radwanska. If they coulda stuffed Serena/Bremond in there just for CBS they would have I suppose. But that match has the most potential to be a rout for Serena, so that's why it's given to USA for night. And Murray/Wawrinka is on Ashe at night. WHY WHY WHY????? Why, if they are forced to have Nishikori/DelPotro as a night match for Japanese TV why can't they have this on Ashe??????

As it is, the Armstrong day session is Groenefeld/Safina and Mauresmo/Penneta. The Nishikori/Del Potro won't be before 630 pm EDT which means the US Open Mix on Direct TV will be off air for that match. ARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!

I am praying that Serena/Bremond is SUCH a DUD that USA is forced to show Nishikori/Del Potro. Please, for the love of TENNIS, PLEASE!!!!!
