Woohoo! Prepare to see a lot of women on ESPN2 - Day 1!

Coverage starts when play begins, so we will probably start with Davenport vs. Dellacqua, but that will inevitably be a blowout so we will probably get a fair dose of Ginepri vs. Melzer as well. In a perfect world they would also check in on Dementieva and Hantuchova, but that may be hoping for too much.

As for the second match of the day, Venus is by far the biggest draw there, so we should see most of that match (I'm also looking forward to seeing Pironkova because I've never seen her play), and hopefully we'll check in with Dokic as well.

For the third match, since ESPN2 wants to get in Sharapova's pants, we will see most if not all of her match.

That will probably do it for their Day 1 coverage, but if things go quickly we could see some of Henin-Hardenne.

I wish we got coverage of the night session to see Li vs. Serena, but you can't have everything. Anyway, an encouragingly woman-filled day.

No Li vs. Serena is disappointing, but besides that I'm excited. I can't wait to see Linds, Vee, Pironkova (although I want her to lose ; even though I do like her a lot), and some clips of other matches (especially Dokic). It will also be interesting to see Maria and see where she's at. Should be a good first day of coverage, as long as ESPN2 doesn't find a way to screw it up .

I just want this to start already. Excited is not even the word.

Björk
Imperious in victory. Never conceiving the possibility of defeat. The greatest of her era. The self-belief, that smile, backhand, muscles, serve, personality, all larger than life. There's no greater sight in women's tennis than watching Serena J. Williams go to work.
The others are Great, but Serena's the Greatest

I got this from the fact that they aren't covering the night session.

Passing up Serena and Roddick...

Oh, I'm sure they'll show Nalbandian and Gaudio. The men's field is just pathetic this year. If they show these men's matches, the male bias will obviously be in effect.

James Blake is the third match on show court 3 though, so expect to see him. Ginepri too.

Serena and Roddick will be shown....just because they aren't showing the night session live doesn't mean it won't air.

I didn't even notice that. Yeah, we'll see a lot if him too...more if Sharapova's match is a blowout.

I wish they would just add some more coverage so we could see Serena live. They're showing POKER instead.

Ugh, they have coverage on Monday from 2-6:30 ET, while Day 2 play begins at 7 ET. That's when they'll show Serena and Roddick.

P.S. -- If we don't see Martina against Zvonareva...I'm going to shit a brick. Just letting you know.

They have time to show serena at the end. So just do the math and you will know that you will see her on tv.

No. Coverage ends at midnight ET, and her match isn't scheduled until 3:30am ET. They can't show it in this window. Just do the math...

Again, you must be looking at the wrong schedule. It ends at 12am, not 6:30am.
