How does ESPN plan on doing this?

Their coverage doesn't start until 10 pm EST. That's an hour after the Davenport vs. Molik QF is scheduled to start. I doubt that doubles match will take three hours. Will they join the match in progress or show it from the beginning on delay?

ESPN will show Agassi/Federer match and then show the Roddick/Davydenko match live and then show taped delay of Davenport/Molik

im thinking one of two ways..either they start the coverage at 9:15pm and show both her and roddick live or show roddick live and do a "pretend you don't hear the noise coming out of rod laver arena for the womens match cause we aint showing it before the roddick match" routine

they will ignore that match so much that they might as well digitize (like you do with informants faces on tv) that portion of the draw

They showed Roger/Andre live and then showed it again this morning. But I got no Patty/Elena except for a few seconds. There is no variety with ESPN's coverage.

They'll go to Davenport-Molik in progress. Unless she's playing at the same time as ROddick.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Roddick is on after the completion of the Davenport vs. Molik match.
