News Flash: NBC will be showing the Ladies Doubles Final now...

Their Wimbledon coverage goes until 3:00 PM EST - 2 and a half more hours. Should be enough to fully carry the Ladies Doubles match? that's great! I ws gonna buy it on Wimbly Live.

I'm a little worried that NBC will cut it up and keep going to the "Sports Desk", etc.

OK I'm not happy. But that makes sense since there is an American in it.

I'll watch the Doubles match on Wimbly Live.

I'm just thankful we aren't getting "special bonus coverage" of Andy Roddick's second round match.

They probably don't want to show Suarez/Ruano Pascual moonball and stay back on every point. It's kind of embarrassing for women's doubles and always has been.

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Yep, all tape and studio for the last hour.

Ruano Pascual and Suarez are staying back, not playing net at all, as pcrtennis said. If you are not watching it don't say BS.

I appreciate your great concern about Chinese players performance. Actually many of us are watching World Cup: France vs Italy.

BTW, Guangdong Sports in China will be showing the match at 14:00-15:50pm, Monday, Beijing time.

I just meant that it does not matter that they stay back-- it works well for them, and certainly shows at least some sort of creativity in the doubles game.
