I already send them an email! They are just stupid over @ espn, only care about Americans,.. Plus ESPN has their heads so far up andy's ass it's ridiculous!

Ok yeah the match wasnt the best between Elena and Petrova but come the fuck on now... They are just ridiculous they really are... atleast show the match and then SOME of Andy's match, just the third set of his match was good enough! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!!!!!!

Come back EVENTUALLY Cappy!! Ok this clearly was written back in a day when I still had faith..

I'm sending an email as well. They show Agassi or Roddick when they win in straight sets. It's stupid and they need to know about it!

Does Roddick pull in more viewers? Stats don't say so.

It wouldn't be a bad idea to show the people who Serena is playing in the final.

Exacrtly.

Elena made a name for herself when beating Venus, but she is no ratings grabber.

At 11 o'clock, the only people who are going to be watching are true tennis fans.. Lena vs. Petrova in a semi final, will pull in just as many viewers as Roddick vs moya which has already been played, people watched that live, who wants to see it again! WE WANT LENA!

If it were Serena's sister (Venus), we'd be watching the women's semi right now.

Also, ESPN goes on about how Americans don't "warm up" to foreign players...

Need I go on?

All Russian semifinals are going to force ESPN to show ATP. That's okay with me.
Keep those all Russian semis coming.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

You won't be seeing the other women's semi because the Bottom Line showed the score previously and that means they have no plans of showing it.

Your only chance of seeing it is if one of the men can't play their semifinal tomorrow.

Thanks, i'm not stupid, I know they aren't showing it, it's not on the schedule.. I was saying why they SHOULD show the other one.
