Angry Typical ESPN

Of course they are not showing any matches today because they changed their schedule.

They're showing weight lifting or whatever, instead of tennis which was scheduled.

Just pathetic.

Did you get the memo? They only show Davenport matches.

OMG, It's the Strongest Man of the World Contest on ESPN and SpeedWorld on ESPN2! Both shows just started so it's not Bonus coverage of another sport. My guide says tennis, WTA Tennis!

Just like I've been saying for the past two days!

espn's site is updated to the second... while satellite/whatever guides are made weeks ahead.

I'm pissed that I was right but they show this same bullshit every afternoon. This or billiards or Poker or mom's auto show.

Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

That may be so, but in this case -- and in most cases over the next two weeks -- ESPN's site never said it would be showing tennis.
