Thumbs down US Open TV Coverage/Scheduling Complaining Thread

I can't believe that it's only the second day of the open with a gazillion matches to broadcast to viewers and USA network is already doing a replay of the Agassi/Pavel match, so pathetic! This worship fest of Agassi is making me wanna puke so bad! Hope he goes out pretty bad to Badgdatis in the 2nd round so I don't have to endure this.

Re: WTF, USA Network and Agassi

the match finished late last night so a fair amount of people might not have seen it, this is andre's last slam, and there's a rain delay today...what were you expecting?

Re: WTF, USA Network and Agassi

give the man the respect he deserves. the match didn't finish until close to 1 am last night and most people didn't get to see it. what did you think they're going to show, a replay of the roddick match which was over in like an hour?

Perhaps you don't realize that it's been raining ALL DAY?

Re: WTF, USA Network and Agassi

What the heck is wrong with you? It's the man's last tournament, they would do the same for any 8-time GS champion who played an entertaining first round match and won.

I guess you'll only be happy when Andre is gone. Looks like your wish isn't a long time coming.

Rooting for: Roddick | Federer | Blake| Fish | Bryans | Gasquet | Querrey | Baghdatis | Verdasco | Kimmy
Missing: Andre | Safin | Women's tennis

Re: WTF, USA Network and Agassi

It was a good match and all, but there are other matches they could show... that weren't broadcast, you know? :\ I understand why they're doing it, but, well, yeah. He's going to play again, and there are other matches that weren't broadcast. :\

I was pleased they showed Rubin/Vaidisova, though ^____^

Agassi or not, it was a fanastic match (well, depending if you like tennis or not) and it deserves to be replayed for those who missed it. It's not like they're going all Tennis Channel and are going to show this on rerun on every second of every day. It's not like they can show any live tennis because of the rain delay anyway so would you rather watch that or some boring one-sided women's match?

I love tennis because of...

Andre Agassi (always #1)---Novak Djokovic ---Rafa Nadal---
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga---Gilles Simon---Tomas Berdych---David Nalbandian---Nico Almagro

Re: WTF, USA Network and Agassi

Cut them some slack. This is the home slam of a world champion, playing his last ever tournament. This is not the USO as usual, there is an additional element and he is the biggest story

That's lame. I mean, why don't they show Blake/Agassi from last year?

I hope they show Agassi's 1994 and 1999 victory during a rain delay.
