Taped Men's Semis in US???

Wow. It appears that NBC isnt showing Tennis tomorow morning until 10:00 am, while Fed vs Nalby begins at 7 .

I guess they are hoping to show Rafa live,then taped Fed.

I hope to God they dont show two taped matches.

Thanks, NBC

Re: Taped Men's Semis in US???

This is the schedule from ESPN2's website:

June 9 10 a.m.-1 p.m. (taped) Men's semifinals NBC
June 9 6-8 p.m. (taped) Men's semifinal No. 1 ESPN2
June 10 1-4:30 a.m. (taped) Men's semifinal No. 2 NBC

All mens semis will be shown taped either on NBC or ESPN2. ESPN2 is not showing anything live because of the World Cup. I thought that was going to be on ESPN, but ESPN has NCAA basketball.

Slight correction- they are showing college baseball- not basketball. They are showing the NCAA baseball playoffs.

I just hope my Tivo can navigate all of the different channels.

I like a lot of players.

Re: Taped Men's Semis in US???

it's unfortunate, but the World Cup coverage has to take priority, it's the kick off of the tournament, any other time these semis would be live I'm sure.

This is ESPN & NBC we're talking about,
but I suppose you maybe right.

Then again, how many times have taped
matches been shown over live tennis with
these stations?

It's the same for the men's semi's as it's been every year since I can remember, but at least now they show the finals live.

Re: Taped Men's Semis in US???

It's always been like this as tennicace pointed out. Every single year the semis are taped, but at least the final is live now. Slow progress....

Re: Taped Men's Semis in US???

At the very least, NBC could show Nadal v. Ljubicic instead of Federer v. Nalbandian so that the coverage would be live (in the east at least).

Federer
Safin Gasquet
Ljubicic Moya Mirnyi
Robredo Nadal Gonzalez Ancic
