I wish the MSG Network televised LA instead of ESPN/ESPN2.

I really miss Bud Collins, Virginia Wade and the MSG Network covering the WTA's year end championships at Madison Square Garden. They gave the tournament excellent coverage. And the tournament had a big time feel in New York. This tournament in Los Angeles has all the feel of a Los Ageles Lakers exhibition game without Shaquille O'neal and Kobe Bryant!

And I taped wednesdays and thursdays coverage on ESPN. And they leave the matches before their conclusions on ESPN. I taped it both days only to find another moronic ESPN talk show on my tape where the end of the Henin-Dementieva and Maleeva-Hantuchova matches should have been!

This tournament should be a climactic ending to the WTA's season. But I think it's anti-climactic! Although Serena Williams is putting her final touches on one of the greatest years ever in women's tennis!

Why would they show something on MSG that took place in LA?

For many years, MSG televised the Chase Championships nationally. And they did a great job, too!

It helps when an Arena have there own TV Network.. I do have to Admit.. Espn coverage so far is nothing to be happy about.. MSG use to show ALL the matches.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow
