Smile Where's The TV Coverage Of The Defending Champ = Venus

Not once has CBS cut to the Venus match. I am toooo fit to be tied - and even w/them showing James Blake.

Venus is the defending champion and yet - she is not getting the coverage she deserves IMO.

Too tied up in knots to even expound further.

Lucky you, Becool! Here in North America, we get the men's.
But this Blake-Hewitt match promises to be a good one. This is gonna be tennis galore from two great shot makers.

If they do show Venus match it will be taped-delayed.

Venus' matches are boring until she plays a big name.

Yes she's very fast and powerful

Muller didn't had any chances

But crowd tried to cheer her up, but Venus was there

I love Vee, but I don't have any complains today... I enjoyed the Seles /Cho match, and now I am so loving Blake/Hewitt ... I'm hoping that Blake beats that loud -mouth frat boy

Even Venus looks bored with her early round matches.

I think at times Venus kinds of embarasses her opponents. I was a little ticked because I wanted to tape the match, but I knew it was another slaughter. Vee is in a class of her own, and I know Mueller wasn't going to be up to snuff with her.
Also, the James/Hewitt matchup is pretty heated. Go Jamie!!!!!!!!!!Kiss some Aussie ass!!!! Even though I think Hewitt will win. Good luck to my boy!!!!

I know they will show Jenny regardless of what the score is, she is America's Sweetheart. Anyways, I guess I will watch that one and she what Caps is up too.

I have been fuming here in Germany also. Where is the tv coverage of 2-times defending champion. You would think people know something about respect!

They are back!

I think I've seen like a few seconds of her on Australian TV and that was during the sports news

Oh well, the final is coming up.
