Re: How is this going to work...

Is ESPN not showing any coverage at all this year?

Serena: Queen of the odd in OZ.

Venus: Please follow suit and win Wimbledon again.

Re: How is this going to work...

I just checked and ESPN does have coverage. I didn't know TTC had obtained rights to the AO like it did the FO.

Re: How is this going to work...

ESPN2 has pretty extensive coverage.

There are also any number of online streams.

The only women's players ESPN2 will show are Serena, Venus, Lindsay, Maria, and Justine but as I expect the Semifinalists to all be among that group, it shouldn't be too bad.

Re: How is this going to work...

ESPN has the same amount of coverage as it did last year. TTC just added more live hours. Basically, nearly 24hour coverage. TTC offered a livestream for the French, I am sure it will do the same for Melbourne.

I think it was posted last year that they obtained rights to the AO and Wimbledon. So Direct TV customers get interactive early coverage programming which includes TTC. I just wish they had exclusive rights because ESPN is known for time-delayed/taped matches.

Re: How is this going to work...

Even more so this year. If Serena, Sharapova, Davenport or Roddick are first on, you'll be sure ESPN will repeat it with their time window rather than show Henin, Chakvetadze, Djokovic, etc.

Re: How is this going to work...

Will DirecTV have the 5 courts option for Melbourne? That would be awesome!
