There is no excuse for ESPN to not show the live ending of close matches. Instead they show tennis reruns.

Do they consider tennis a sport or not?

The whole idea of being a sports fan is to watch the end of close matches like Bovina-Obata. How ESPN can have the rights, be on the air, and show old tapes is beyond me.
They're crazy in their decision making.

Bovina-Obata was a really great fight. Small really talented immovable object met larger even more talented irresistable force.
