I think ESPN might have some technical difficulties and have the message we are doing our best to fix the problem and bang on 7pm there will be tennis coverage shown.

Very true rassklovn.

Could you imagine the scenario the fans have seen the players warm up and just as about they are going to call time then the TV screen goes blank.

People ringing the ESPN call centre actually that technically should be busy as hell. but would probably only be 2 people in the queue they are on hold for 3 hours and have been passed around to 5 different people to find out the source of the problem.

1. The first one says it's because of windy weather.
2. Someone has cut the cable when they were doing maintenance work.
3. It's not just you, it's a nationwide problem. Then you ring your friend who lives in another state and they have coverage.
4. We will have the coverage back soon, but we will be going to World Pig Steeplechase Championships in Mudlick Kentucky which will go to 7pm.
5. We are the ones who have the most comprehensive tennis coverage ( for some people), so you can't take your business elsewhere.

Enough of the scenarios come on Roger and Guille.

There will be technical problem with live coverage but ESPN will replay the Roddick/Escude match and if still not enough, the Roddick/Safin match, then Agassi/Hrbaty match and so on....

They could always show the Golden Summer where Roddick was the king of the North American hardcourts.

Though if I was in the booth I would switch the tapes with Roddick's greatest claycourt victories in Europe. To be fair they could show that Roddick/Chang match at the FO and I would be far from disappointed.

That match will be in ESPN Classic when RG comes.

Do they show any tennis after Agassi gets eliminated? He is usually the last American left in these champs.

But there are so many better RG matches than this one, then again we have to look at the market don't we.

GWH, it's ESPN Classic, not tennis classic

The coverage for RG is less than Wimbly or USO. There weren't lots of LIVE coverage, if I remember correctly.

Good luck bunk and tangerinus if you can get through to the call centre as all the irate callers will want their money back.
