you certainly didn't include Venus and Serena when you said all Americans, did you?

I dunno actually...they seemed to have the men's and women's coverage pretty evenly spread at the slams...as in amount of coverage. Of course, when both American men and American women are playing at the same time the men get the coverage...

If you look at the TV scheduling throughout the whole year tho, it seems to me more WTA events are covered than ATP events...

I just hope for a variety. I don't wanna see every Jen match. I don't wanna see every Williams' match. I hope they include coverage of Justine, Amelie, Kim, Monica, Jelena, Vera....etc.

I am not working for the next two months and will be home for RG and wimbledon, now if only I could go and see them live.

When I think of life, sometimes my response is "Oh Damn!". But I still think of life anyway, "Oh Damn!!!"

ESPN definately shows more mens, to me anyway

while NBC and USA if i remember showed more Womens matches

but your right, it depends on the draw and when the american women/men play

i just think its rediculous that if Venus is playing on Center Court and Dickhead is playing on Suzzane Lenglen, they'd show that stupid guy getting beat up

You know V's match is only going to be 55 minutes anyway so why not just show that then show the other one?

Please stop calling him that. It's not nice, and if I made fun of your favorites name you'd be mad. Thank you.
