Love Andre but why are they not showing Amelie?

Cmon now, I love Andre and all but ESPN2 cuts coverage of a live match to show Andre's post match interview. I mean everyone knows he was injured, why does ESPN have to show this while tennis is going on?

I was just about the post the same thing. I love Andre, but his monotone voice is really irritating to hear knowing there's a match with a top 10 player going on.

Really, don't even look at me...

Its really criminal what they are doing. They are showing a freaking interview with a loser rather than a live tennis match.


WTF!

HE LOST! ITs OVER! We have moved on and don't want to hear his thoughts. have him cry it out with Babs Walters and save us the drama. THIS SHOULD BE TIME FOR TENNIS NOT TALK.

They could have shown about 5 mins of it. He said he's not throwing in the towel yet so show Amelie.

They are airing AA's interview live, with the thought that it may be the last we see of this wonderful player. At his age, they always worry that each match could be his last. I understand this choice. It's not like they broke away from a semifinal match tied at 67 76 5-all.

I am not a fan of either Andre nor Amelie but don´t you think that a lot of american tennis viewers want to know if the currently most famous male american tennis player is doing alright with his injury?

And the worst part is hearing the same questions asked OVER and OVER again. It's like they expected him to announce a retirement in this interview, and just kept on grilling him. As if that would be huge news anyway... Duh, people, he's old, his body won't hold up as well as it used to. Why do we need to hear him talk about it for over 5 minutes?

It'd be worth covering if he announced his retirement right there, but once it was clear that wasn't going to happen... why continue showing the interview? There were just some very redundant questions.

Hon, Amelie could be doing a topless striptease while tip-toeing along the top of the net in a tutu, but if Andre's playing, then ESPN will show Andre.

Plus, Amelie is beating that other girl pretty handily, so it's probably a crap match anyway.

What is worse is that ESPN will probably show Andre's match again even though he lost instead of live tennis or a match on tape that they did not air.

Perfect thread for it..Was I the only one who couldn't concentrate on what Andre was saying but was fixed at looking at that strange white thing on his chin?

Oh lord, now that they finally start showing the match. MJF is talking about Andre like she is hott for him.

I am a big fan of Andre but this is so silly. He was injured, and his post match interview is taped so they could show it later on.
