Exclamation SPEAK UP & TELL ESPN TO SHOW FEDERER/SAFIN SF LIVE!

Latest news for tennis fans living in the U.S. is BAD: ESPN2 is planning to broadcast only the Hewitt/Roddick SF live but NOT Federer/Safin: http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/tv...leWeek?sport=TN.

PLEASE join those of us (and have your friends, spouses, and colleagues do the same) who are flooding ESPN with emails requesting that they also show Federer/Safin. Here's the link: http://sports.espn.go.com/sitetools...act/espntv.html

LET'S GET THEM TO SHOW BOTH SEMIS AND THE FINALS LIVE IN THE U.S., REGARDLESS OF THE PLAYERS' NATIONALITIES!

Re: SPEAK UP & TELL ESPN TO SHOW FEDERER/SAFIN SF LIVE!

we won't get ANY coverage of Rogi/Marat not live not taped, not tonight not tomorrow afternoon... if today's coverage is anything to go on... I'm in Canada... and the coverage is a repeat of the molik match... so tomorrow will be a repeat of the Womens' SF... and NO ROGI at all!!

This truly sucks.... ouahh!!!!!!!!!

Anyone in Quebec get Rogi/Marat? I may need to ask for a copy...

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

I just sent an e-mail to espn about 5 minutes and I also urge my
fellow FEDERER fans in the US to do so as well.Hopefully they will
show this potentially great match live.

I tried to send them an email and got the message *site not found*~~

I searched the ESPN site and found another link and sent a message!

Allez

espn latin america is whowing it live as david lleyton one. 5:30 am my time... One of the guys of ESPN site e mailed me the data and i saw it at the tv advances.,
So ESPN latin america gets the signalk from espn usa, not from aussie signal ( for sure cos the d cut the interviews and show mc enroe and goldexroddick talkks) so I think you have to have it guys
CHECK

RogiFan, I think TSN will show the match tomorrow evening around 22h30 (in Ontario) and also on Friday. Check their schedule again.... In Quebec, they will show it tomorrow at 23h30. I'll record the match and if you need it, I'll be able to send you a tape.

Re: SPEAK UP & TELL ESPN TO SHOW FEDERER/SAFIN SF LIVE!

They're showing Roddick Live? Why bother showing him at all? I suppose bashball has some followers, but most of us tune in to watch tennis, thank you! Pray we don't have another damn Rog-Roddick final. It's like watching a Ferrari & a Concrete Mixing Truck!! (Roddick has hands of concrete -what can I say!!)

Anyway, everyone, I'll happily email espn, if that's the consensus around here, but I don't understand why you care if it's live. I'd just as soon not check results & watch it broadcast @time I'm fully awake. So, if anyone cares to explain to me why it matters, please do.

After Aussie Open, I'd like to discuss w/my fellow Fed followers, what you think about asking espn if they'd broadcast Tennis for the Tennis Fan Showcase in their off hours. My beef w/espn is not whether stuff is live & who the announcers are, but that they try to sell deodorant rather than show tennis. I want to see the most interesting matches @the tournament, rather than Agassi, Roddick, Wms(es), Shreiknova, LDav.....ad infinitem.....and Rog, if we're lucky. Rog is about the only player I want always to see, even if he's practicing w/Tony. So, pls. think about this, and hopefully we can discuss it later. Enjoy
THE MATCH, everyone. I'm not sanguine about Rog's victory, but hope he plays beautifully.

Merci, Dana! But we get tennis tomorrow at 11.30pm and on Fri 1pm... if we don't get the Rogi match I'll let you know... you can PM me!



BTW, I don't mind coverage in French... pas de probleme!

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!
