Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I think ESPN will show:

1-5pm: Mauresmo vs. Ivanovic --> Hrbaty vs. Ferrer

7-9pm: Nadal vs. T. Johansson

Deboogle!.

Aw, thanks RDucky... I knew I wasn't gonna be home in time, though.

Yeah, HF, I'd say that's what ESPN will show, except they might show Kim/Elena tape-delayed at 10 instead of the guys - how great is that - not an American in SIGHT!!!!!!!!! :banana:

the text is up at the tourney site, though, if joeb wants to paste it in for those who have trouble with PDF.

Tim Henman VS Roger Federer
I will bet on Tim Henman this time. Roger Federer is absolutely OFF FORM now and has been feeing very unwell and sick this week having vomit many times and that can be show in his recent match with Ancic and Zabaleta. He play with tons of backhand error during match with Zabaleta. And he played with Ancic hours ago with lot of backhand and forehand unforced error which he normally could easily hit. He must be feeling physically weak and mentally tired now having to deal with his medical condition now. This time, he would be against verteran and experience Tim Henman. With Henman aggressive play, Federer would find it to keep up with the tempo and rythm of the match for sure base on his current medical condition and lousy play. Henman has been great in this tournament and not losing a set yet! Morever, Henman leads 6-3 in H2H with Federer winning the last 2 but that isn't important at all as Henman will sure want to revenge and win in this prestigous tournament. I will put 20 stakes in this match! Odds is juicy now. Grab it while its still there. Donate to me if you like my edge picks. Thanks!

I taped Venus/Serena because the schedule said ESPN2 was showing it in the wee hours. We don't need an encore of the tape delay. :fiery:

There's so much great tennis still going on. Turn the cameras on and just roll on court! How about the great matches we haven't seen this tournament? PLAY THOSE!! :mad:

When is ESPN going to lift the ban on watching Rafa?!?!! They parse shots of him out like they're afraid the American public will actually get to know and like this great player!

03-30-2005, 03:50 PM
Hrbaty must fancy his chances to get to the final here, good records against both Johansson and Nadal and he can't lose to the Frog... can he? It would be a joke if the Frog managed to make the semis of an event like this.

uh, first of all this match isn't played until tomorrow, so post in tomorrow's thread or at the gamblers lounge. and second, we all know Roger raises his game against worthy opponents (aka top10 players) so I wouldn't look into his last couple of matches too much. Federer in two, easily.

That wasn't meant to be offensive. Everyone knows ESPN is showing this because black people like basketball, which is shown two or three times a week on the station.

They should still only show the second set. The first was a wash at 6-1.

I don't know you personally and I won't label you a racist. Your previous statements in this regard are offensive to me and maybe many others. I enjoy what Venus and Serena bring to tennis. I do not want to see the match replayed in this time slot, however. I believe those ladies have many more fans than those of one racial component. I and many other Americans have enjoyed playing and watching basketball all of our lives. Just last night I received an email from someone who went to see pro basketball this weekend. She was thrilled and she is not black to my knowledge. I never asked her racial background because it's not important to me as she is a beautiful person inside and out.

Although you are entitled to your opinion as a living human being, please don't type those types of statements here. Thanks. :)

Do you have the statistics to back this up? Didn't think so. Viewership fuels athlete's to market their own products. Most of these athletes are African American. Don't you know anything about the stock market?

ESPN shows basketball games because AMERICA wants it.
So, you're telling me ESPN shows hockey because America wants it? Do you really have a business sense of how Gross National Product affects marketing?

there will be quite a few breaks in this match as the courts are slow and neither player has a huge serve...i took ferrer simply b/c he must be playing fairly solid with his recent wins, he is younger, hrbaty can be hit and miss, and the odds ofcourse

I'm not counting my chickens just yet. Ferrer's serve isn't exactly unbreakable and surely Hrbaty can't play this badly all match

Ok, but they all got a BREAK. Hrbaty on other side is playing like an amateur. :rolleyes:


LOL MK that is very true ... never saw him playing so bad

For those who are saying this is Hrbaty's worst match ever. How many would be saying that if they didn't have money on it.

Actually, this reminds of his Round of 16 match versus O. Rochus last year.

I only have virtual cash on it, but unless he turns it around, I am confident in saying it's his worst match in several, several years. :p

I've got coverage and I've got money on Ferrer. I can honestly say its been a truly awful performance by Hrbaty, I haven't seen enough of his matches to say if its his worst ever but he's been pretty terrible

I am sorry when you lose 6-2 6-0 6-0 to Gambill that is a candidate for worst performance ever.

Dominik had a golden chance to go up 0-30 in that game and missed an easy backhand. Ferrer runs away with the game and leads 6-2 4-1*

I have seen worse and I have to leave work soon and I have this taped so I can laugh if it is this bad.
