Will NBC "embargo" the Venus match?

Does anyone know if NBC has rights to the Venus match.. or even the Roddick one? BEcause I don't watn to get up at 6 AM if ESPN2 won't even be able to show Venus.

I used to list my favorite tennis players here...
...then they all retired.
I used to keep track of my rankings in fantasy games here...
...then I realized how much I suck.
I used to update this signature, once in a while...
...then I realized no one actually reads it.

Ummm i dunno. With Roger, Andy, and Venus on the schedule tomorrow it would be very hard to see them getting all three. I have a feeling that since they showed Venus today, they will go with Andy and Roger tomorrow, and repeat her match if coverage allows.

But tv rights with tennis is so backwards, they could very well embargo it. Its a crock of shit really. Especially with them replaying matches anyways.

I have a good feeling that NBC will show Roddick's match, so I'll be up with you to catch Venus!

NBC (regular network TV in the states) starting at 12 Noon Thursday is showing "Women's semifinals".

I am pretty sure ESPN will show it live.
