Why do we only get the Direct Tv full court access the 1st week..and do you think there's any chance we'll ever get rid of Network Coverage...after all, they treat tennis like a red headed step child.

I have no idea why NBC insists on showing weekday coverage. It's one of the biggest disgraces to tennis to show everyone outside of the East Coast tape-delayed coverage in this technological age. Every year I hope that maybe NBC will give up their weekday rights to ESPN, but it's just not going to happen

Do they not have the interactive coverage on Monday? I was hoping they would. The website says the coverage is from Jun21-28
