When will Federer vs Hewitt be shown?

ESPN and NBC's taped coverage SUCKS. NBC has promised to show us Serena vs. Capriati, which is on at 10 am EST (7 PST in Canada). ESPN has promised to show Andy Roddick's match afterwards at 1pm EST.

This means that ESPN will NOT be showing Serena vs Capriati live, and will only be able to show Mauresmo vs Suarez (unless they replay a match from yesterday). THEN Serena and Capriati taped, followed by Roddick taped, and THEN I guess Federer vs Hewitt will be shown? So is that like 3:30 pm? 4 if Roddick-Schalken goes 5?

This taped coverage is absolutely ridiculous. Why can't ESPN show Serena-Capriati live, NBC show Roddick and then ESPN show Federer, and THEN replay Serena-Capriati?!?

IDIOTS. Just when we thought the coverage was improving.

ha ha ha, I think it is the same story every where. Here in Asia, we are saying the same thing about STAR SPORTS, the channel which telecasts wimbledon here.

NBC has been putting their coverage at 10AM ALL TIME ZONE for the last 3 days, which leaves 3 hours out from 7am-10am here in San Francisco. NBC has managed to ruin most of my coverage.

To make things worse, Cappy loses 6-1 6-1 to Serena. LOL! Who the hell wants to see that? You'd hope they'd make adjustments after they know the scores.

NBC always wants to reserve an American for their line-up and this backfired today.
