What will NBC show tomorrow?

I doubt very much we'll see a full RD 16. Lindsay/Dementieva is probably the best RD 16 match, followed by Jen/Schiavone then Venus/Zuluaga.

But we'll probably see Serena, since she seems to be NBC's darling

who knows . but nbc was fucking HORRIBLE today


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

NBC will be showing commercials with some taped boring American coverage on the side...

Visit MONICA!

NBC taking a comericial break after EVERY GAME was driving me crazy. And the commecial breaks were like 3 minutes long also

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

Here's what ticked me off about today's coverage.

1-the commericals after each game (which was done so they wouldn't have to show another match)

2-Why did they even show Serena (Serena to NBC is like Andre and Roddick to ESPN)? Had Serena been facing Pierce or Bovina it would be one thing...but a virtual unknown (like all of Serena's draw thus far)? Venus and Jennifer clearly had the tougher third round matches, and Jen went three.

3-The pathetic hours. It's too short.

I agree that Serena's match was pretty boring but I think they showed it because ESPN was showing Capriati vs. Bovina.

I think the problem is that they have to decide ahead of time what matches they will show. and the sponsors; not knowing anything about tennis think that Venus+Serena=Huge ratings and $$$$.
