Even if, jennifer/serena match won't last all coverage. you'll get to see guga/nalbandian. and we'll prob get to see the oh so wonderfull matchup of lleyton and gaudio

I actually am looking forward to Gaudio-Hewitt. That should go one of two years: either Gaudio kicks serious ass, or he chokes. Hopefully the former.

If they dont' show Nalbandian my head will explode.

Hope they show both matches.

But I'm not holding my breath.

Capriati is the savior to their tennis coverage. If she fails to win, they might just dump the FO from the schedule next year.

I hope we get to see both, although I wouldn't be surprised to see "reprises" of both Williams matches from today. :eek: :(

They will show Capriati/Serena twice over and highlights from the Serena, Venus, JCap victories during the tournament.

I doubt ESPN will dedicate 6hr15min of tennis coverage to non-American players. So prepare yourself for rerun of Williams and Capriati.

Well that's just fucking retarded. There is no reason to show a taped match during a live one, when you can just show the taped on AFTER the live one. Re-fucking-diculous.

The Hewitt match is being played first...so it kind of makes sense to me. Will the Guga match even be on at the time that they start thier coverage at 8:00 am EST? I'm not sure. At least they are showing the matches!

They won't say many kind things about him. Probably mention all the choking episodes and if he wins they will discredit him in anyway possible.

It's great that Davenport, Venus and Serena lost.
Hopefully we could watch men's SF and Final.

I HATE ESPN

I hope they're gonna show Myskina against Venus after.

Cause I've only seen it 2 times, I'd like to see it a third time.

I called ESPN, they say both matches will be on today, I tried to impress upon the unik that there is a great match being played now !!!

He asked who, I told him , doubt he ever heard of tennis,

All should call this stupid pathetic network

ESPN shows Guga's match from set 3 2-4*.
Are they gonna show Venus again after this?

Yes, US viewers have to suffer a bit with that great match between Nalbandian and Kuerten before they have the chance to watch the crappy match of Venus, the 3rd or 4th time.

This really puzzles me a lot. Why ESPN thinks there will be casual fans watch 1213354534th rerun of JCap/Serena match at 8am et/5am pt? The viewers show up at this time are tennis fans and will be sick and tired of that match already. There's a 2 hours window on tape delay, why not just starts with Hewitt/Gaudio match right away and then full Kuerten/Nalbandian match. If there's rain delay, 2 hours is a pretty good window and if worse, show the women's match again and fans won't be screaming in this case.

I expected this. That's why I slept in an hour. Woke up at 9am to see the Capriati match was on.

Does anyone know what ESPN's schedule of the men's semis are? Is NBC showing one of them.
I'm sure ESPN will show a repeat of Capriati-Myskina instead of the men.

Clara Bow

Arrgh...I'm home on my lunch break and started watching the Tivoed Nalbandian Guga match and the first thing that I hear is Dick Enberg talking about how Nalby is a man of few words and unlike other Spanish speaking players has not bothered to learn English? Wha??? I guess I must have dreamed the English portions of his press conferences. He and Pat are so biased against David that it's not even funny. Why don't Dick and Pat just wear "I Hate David" t-shirts - at least that would be honest instead of the crap that they are spouting when they are calling the match.
