Mens QuarterFinals not live WED on ESPN?

Looks like no live coverage for people in the US of the Mens QF's. ESPN starts coverage at 8 am ET while Nadal and Djokovic match starts at 6 ET followed by Ljubicic and Benneteau. The only thing i could see is if they showed Ivans match live because it should start around the time they got on and then show Nadals match afterwards on tape, but since this is ESPN i highly doubt they will do anything that makes sense.

Re: Mens QuarterFinals not live WED on ESPN?

First of all, Nadal's match wont start at 6, it'll start a couple minutes later, it never starts on time. Next, I HIGHLY doubt that the Nadal-DJ match will last only 2 hours. with the ass picking, ball-bouncing, and court-cleaning, 2 hrs maybe for 2 sets. So we'll see some of that match. I agree with you that ESPN wont do anything that makes sense. That is their trademark

That's a tradition. Second Wednesday, they always show it delayed. Reasons are unknown..

We'll see it in its entirety. Nobody in US gives a fuck about second quarterfinal featuring two virtual unknowns. While Nadal is a superstar..

I'll have to resist the urge to check the sb. I can do it. Sure I can.

I think the plan........however , is to show Ljubicic's match live and then Nadal's match taped. They expect Nadal to steamroll Djokovic in 2 hours.

That's ridiculous. They won't even start playing until 1/4 after the hour. Nadal/Nole should take longer than that.

I guess I will get up early and stare at the sb.

No, they've already stressed that Nadal is up first. I don't think they would start with Ivan live because it would give away that Nadal's match is already over. And hopefully it won't be over after 2 hours anyway.

This works better for me, perhaps. I can't get up for 6 am. I'll just try to pretend it's live and not check the scoreboard... if I can resist.

Okay. I guess I wasn't paying close enough attention. Thanks, Leo.

Re: Mens QuarterFinals not live WED on ESPN?

Yeah I honestly think they'll start with Nadal on tape in entirety, then Ivan on tape in entirety. And I can just wake up later, so I don't mind. But it is dumb and unfortunate for those who really want to see it live.
