Good News, Roddick is out...

Maybe now Espn will show us some early rd action from some lesser known wta players. I really want to see Molik and Henin in the 4th rd...

Federer, Agassi, Safin, Serena, Venus, Sharapova, I highly doubt you'll see lesser wta players. Maybe some Henin comsidering she was a former #1 and slam champ and its her first event back in a while, as well as Clijsters since she just won IW.

Well, Espn was only going to show 2 matches a day anyway. One of those matches would have went to Roddick. Now there is a better chance to see someone new.

If there's such a match (Henin vs Molik) then it's possible that they'd show since Justine is a former US Open champ and former #1 and Molik took Venus out of the Australian Open.

But it's unlikely because Venus, Serena and Sharapova play in the same day as H˛ and Molik.

Dont count on a rudduck free NASDQ.
We'll see rodduck on tape delay hurting his wrist 500 times, some footage of him winning last year, hours of analysis of his prospects for the rest of the year, some andy interviews, footage of him winning the humanitarian thingy (??), and finally hours of hearing pat mcenroe whine and cry into his beer about how poor andy would prob have won the whole thing........

Seriously, its not about liking or not liking andy. Its just that he is so overexposed that no one else gets any face time, particularly the non-sharapova/williams WTA players.

Now they are marketing the "big 4" in mens tennis, which is just a way of keeping andy in the loop. I know that they must feel that americans will not be interested in tennis without an US male to follow, but im not so sure. Federer is getting more popular, though he was a well kept secret (thanks ESPN) for ages.

CLijsters, minimal coverage last week, prob the same for henin this week...... stupid non-tennis fan execs @ ESPN

I hope that they show Shahar vs. Serena on Sunday. Then everyone will see Shahar's talent. Go Shahar!
