The Tennis Channel

Does anyone know why TTC is acting like Indian Wells is a masters series event only. Dementieva and Yakimova are deep in the third set and we are listening to these obnoxious commentators discuss the weather while we watch people read their programs. And people wonder why the WTA is less popular.. :retard:

I don't get it either!

It may have to do with ESPN having rights to the main court? I'm not sure.. TTC usually does a very fair job of covering the WTA.

Okay. But if so, I expect them to stay on court to for Mattek and Mirza. I don't like either player, but I need a women's match before I fucking smash this television.

I think they are just doing the men today.

Hopefully Henin-Hardenne and Mirza will be on court at the same time. It will be interesting to see what they do...they'll probably go to coverage of watching the grass grow.

TTC may only have the permission/rights to cover the ATP right now. This should change for the second week though.

Hope so. I'd like to see Tszveti.

I decided to believe this until Blake came on. Now I'm ready to kill someone.

What was the final score of this match? I know at one point it was 1-6 5-0. They had 4 more hours of coverage, maybe they'll find some way to squeeze Elena in.
