Serena v. Jen's match will start at 12 noon in Paris, which means 6am EST. It will start BEFORE ESPN's coverage that starts at 8am EST. SO, that's why they show Venus first, since her match will likely start at around that time..and it will be live. Serena/Jen won't be live anyway.
This way, ESPN will/can at least show one match live (the Venus/Anastasia one).
Tennis is Life.
