Too much Sharapova on ESPN

Maybe I should be grateful that ESPN is showing any tennis matches at all, but lately the tournaments seem to be scheduled so that ESPN would always show Sharapova's match and ignore the others. Yesterday the only match shown was Sharapova-Pierce. It was scheduled exactly at the time of ESPN broadcast. Again, today at 4PM ET it's Sharapova vs. Schnyder. I don't hate Sharapova but most fans would sure welcome more variety. Clijsters vs. Vaidisova SF would have been more interesting.

Nevertheless, I will watch and will be rooting for Patty as usual

I will not watch, but I will be routing for Patty as well!!!

"I dream of people watching me holding up my third Wimbledon trophy... Most of all I dream of being a good person to all that are inspired by me I dream of having girls, women, boys, men being fond of not only what I have done on the tennis court, or on the big screen or what I design but I dream of what people think of me as a person.
I dream that people think of me as a giving person as a person that
loves life and is fun to be around." - Serena

Tennis is dead in the US.
ESPN showing the same players over and over is why.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

A lot of y'all should be glad to get to watch Patty slice and dice Sharapova up today. Are the haters never happy?

I agree, but this is what usually happens. There wasn't a single American women left in the draw by the time the coverage started, and the top American women didn't show up. They would naturally show the American players before the others.
Sharapova is very recognizable.
We just saw Kim vs. Nicole last week too.
Either final match up could be interesting.
But yeah, the fact that they're showing women's tennis is nice.

Obviously I'm disappointed that Eurosport won't show Kim, but hey they showed the same match week ago. I think that Patty-Maria match will be much more interesting than watching again Kim-Nicole.

Swiss champs.
