Re: ESPN 2, stop showing men's matches

It's not like they just show men's matches. They usually show the highest seeds or players that are in "trouble" of being a major upset. Djokovic is a well known player and did lose the first set. There will be women's matches on tomorrow.

TT Singles Current Ranking: #9 (CH Ranking: #1)
Titles(11): Zhuhai 2016, Singapore YEC 2015 Eastbourne 2015, Dubai 2015, Linz 2014, Cincinnati 2014, Wimbledon 2014, Marrakech 2014, Quebec City 2012, Cincinnati 2011
TT Doubles Current Ranking: #48 (CH Ranking: #8)
Titles(8): Zhuhai 2015, Stuttgart 2015, Sofia TOC 2014, Cincinnati 2014, Bucharest 2014, Tokyo 2012 (w/New_balls_please), Stanford 2012, Carlsbad 2011, Osaka 2011 (w/rvugt)

Do you have a computer? Go to espn360.com and you can see matches of your choice. If enough people watch women's matches on espn360 maybe they will get the message

Not everyone who has a computer has access to espn360. It's something that has to be worked out with your internet providers.

Re: ESPN 2, stop showing men's matches

I just hate when they show two men ranked like 40 and 80 play over someone like Dementieva or Azarenka.

LUCIE SAFAROVA!!

Madison Brengle!!
Tsvetana Pironkova, Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams, Lauren Davis, Petra Kvitova, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Timea Bacsinszky, Madison Keys, Kaia Kanepi, Klara Zakopalova, Agnieszka Radwanska

Elena Dementieva - Always my number 1 2012 FITD Olympic Gold Medal Champion!

Re: ESPN 2, stop showing men's matches

It was very annoying to me at first when I became a dedicated fan because I wanted to see more of the women's matches but I got over it since my faves matches are ALWAYS shown. However when they go away I wonder who they'll show on the women's side obviously the top ranked players but hopefully by that time the top ranking will be in the hands of someone a LARGE number of people will like to watch consistently....

Re: ESPN 2, stop showing men's matches

ESPN has hit a new low today. Not one single womans match shown, except Serena. Terrible.
