Oh, please! They had barely any coverage at all! Each night and day session featured one match and maybe a tiny bit of another match! ALOT of it wasn't live! TNT has 9 hours of coverage from every court from the first match to the last. The USA Network had ALOT of coverage as well. ESPN did a REALLY REALLY horrible job and I gave them an 'F' for it. You people are all being way too generous with your grades...I mean, seriously...Think about the job ESPN did and then think about what other networks have done, and you'll find why I am posting this type of message...
