Cool Agassi Withdrawal, Nadal / Safin Possible Withdrawal Probably Means More Women On TV

In the US, ESPN hardly ever shows any women's early round matches because they are too busy panting over Andy and Andre. Their new fave during the French was Rafael. Now with Andre and likely Rafael out, the hierarchy will probably look something like this.

Andy Roddick
.
.
.
.
.
James Blake
Robby Ginepri
.
Roger Federer
.
Maria Sharapova
.
Any Other American Man Still In Tournament
.
Serena Williams
Venus Williams
Jennifer Capriati
.
Lleyton Hewitt
Marat Safin
.
Lindsay Davenport

You must have missed the bus since 2003 because the McEnroe brothers have nothing to say except, "Federer is the classiest person alive! The best person to ever hold a racket! Everyone wants him injured!"

Arrogant, annoying jerkoffs.

If there's no Federer, they fawn over Agassi's 'charm' and 'best return game of all time'.
Cliff Drysdale refuses to shut up about Federer and the precious US Davis Cup team.
Old man should be tied to the net as the ladies smash him to death with their rackets.

You forgot about the numerous Roddick Fluff videos, tributes to Roddick, and Cliff Drysdale's second look into Roddick's game (or lack thereof to me).

Martina Hingis 4ever!!!

Now and forever, I'll remember.

Everybody knows that Cliff is in love with SAFIN, not Roddick!

I think they will show Hingis as well now...just too big of a story to throw into the Clijsters, Henin-Hardenne, Dementieva, Kuznetsova, Mauresmo, Pierce tier of airtime for women.

Another good thread.

I don't remember much from the Eurosport coverage of the US Open - namely, if they give priority to the men or not. I believe they showed several of Agassi's five setters, none of which I could be arsed to watch (life is too short).

My only guess is that Eurosport will go out of its way to show Hantuchova in the early rounds.

Kvitova * Garcia * Konjuh * Dodin * Robson * Haddad Maia

They have delusions of Federer dancing ballet while cello music blares loudly.
If that's not enough, they want other players to listen to Federer's wonderful criticism of cowards who didn't play with injuries. Federer, Agassi and 15 WTA players will give the injury excuse each time they play badly.

James Blake's comeback is always on ESPN news. Brad Gilbert declares Agassi the best ball striker ever, and gives us reasons as to why Agassi shines over Roddick. Drysdale, Courier and the Mcs predictably bore us with their sick Federer lust.

Ljubicic and Safin can lose everywhere. They're in bed with Hewitt and Federer.

We should see a lot of Lindsay, Martina, Venus, Serena (if she lasts), Sharapova.

But the way to ensure this is if Roddick loses early. Then we may still have to sit through featurettes about how he has lost his mojo. But those will almost surely be shorter than his actual matches. I'm hoping for Martina and Federer to play on opposite days...then I'm fine.
