They're coming back to show Venus wrapping up her match. Wish they'd instead show some of the reasonably competitive match between Davenport/Stosur, but I should just be happy that they've at least acknowledged the women are playing today -- 4 hours into the telecast.

Yeah - Venus is on now.

I understand them showing Hewitt - how do you not show the top seed and defending champion losing in the 1st round?

If nothing else, they are showing live tennis so far!

Women's tennis always gets the shaft. But with Hewitt in trouble, you know they are going to follow that match closely.

Fuck-whore-mongers! They are showing the fucking interview with the ugly ass bitch Roddick instead of showing the damn Davenport-Stosur match! We already got a fucking half-hour documentary on Roddick's career we don't want or need this! Turn it off! Fucking whores! I am sooo pissed I hate RodDICK with all my god-damn soul ;(

Oh I don't think so. ESPN has great coverage.

There you go. If any of you have missed ESPN's tremendous coverage, I think that about fills you in - I think you don't have to watch after that update.

If it was a player you liked being interviewed, you wouldn't complain.

In the larger scheme these little interviews are important in helping the image of the players - and thus the game. Of course, one could aregue that only die-hard tennis fans are watching right now, and they already know these players.

Let's see what they show next...

Oh wow, There showing Lindsay now. What do ya'll have to say?

But I agree the talking needs to stop. I frankly don't give a shit on what Pat Mac has to say.

Let's send them some more e-mails.

Thankfully they're showing Lindsay now, so I'm a little more pleased with the company

But they're not off the hook

God they finally show the fucking match and god damn Stosur is choking like Anabolic Annie on a 10 inch rod....She fucking threw away that whole last game!

I'm soooo pissed =(

Jeng...that's not true....if it was Justine being itnerviewed I'd still rpefer to see tennis being played! And it's not helping tennis at all cause Roddick is the most annoying human being ever! (oh wait....Trish101....)
