After promising LIVE coverage, and even coming on the air at 8AM in the East, ESPN chooses NOT to show live matches, but instead shows taped matches and even out of sequence!
The Serena/Capriati match which was first on was ignored and promoted as though it was going to be live at 3PM, even though Mary Joe and that Cliff KNEW it wouldnt be live.
Not to mention the 3pm telecasts were NOT on the schedule!
Now ESPN has the early round rights to Wimbledon!!!!!!!!
What are the odds of us seeing ANYTHING live?
Take me back to the days of HBO's classy L I V E coverage!
Is there nothing that can be done about the existing cotract with ESPN?
They are killing the sport on TV.
Absoluetly NO ONE at the WTA or ATP are concerned with this debacle?
Isn't the promotion of the Sport the ultimate goal?
Can't this contract b ere-visited?
I'm SO DAMN PEEVED!
