Espn is showing the Franklin Final with Spadea...

So if anyone is interested tune in. I almost missed it myself, I didn't expect Espn to be showing any tennis until Indian Wells...

Re: Espn is showing the Franklin Final with Spadea...

How funny would it be if ESPN decided to scrap the Spadea-Kiefer final and show the Roddick-Spadea match from last night instead?

If they did that I'd be

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

they wouldn't show spadea-roddick cause roddick lost. they'd probably show gambill-roddick and pretend it's the final ("live")

They showed this tournament last year too, although it wasn't live. They also covered the women's event here (before it got scrapped of course).

Re: Espn is showing the Franklin Final with Spadea...

ESPN didn't have rights to any match before the final, I don't think.

Anyway.... I taped it b/c I was in the air during the match, but Spadea and Kiefer were by far the most boring and least inspiring players I saw all week so I did not watch the tape lol.

Congrats to Vince though, he played very well in the matches I saw of his and deserved to win.

The match-up was great, though, bunk. I didn't expect much from it either, but it was very entertaining. I recommend it.

Well that's good. If I didn't have 9272097620946 things to do I'd watch it but I'm exhausted from flying and have a LOT to do lol. Plus...I just saw them both live and in person and I was just really unimpressed lol

Just keep the tape and try to get back to it later. It's a very hard fought match.

Re: Espn is showing the Franklin Final with Spadea...

Spud...

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

hehe ok. I'll do that.

Plus, this was all a new experience for me. I think I'm a little tennis-ed out at the moment lol. Plus jet-lagged and just overall exhausted haha.
