Is it worth it watching tennis on Wednesday???

Specially for those of us who live in the States. I know ESPN is gonna show Andy's Match all of it and today they kept on saying it. I thought Patric McEnroe was going to have an ORGASM when one of the other commetators said something about it. I do not wannnnnnna watch this match!!!!!!!!!Don't they get that point, that is them (commentators) who are the only ones who wanna see this match and not us!!!!!!! I just hope they show some women's tennis, besides the ending of every match!!!!!!!!!

well some people like watching Andy, so yes people do want to watch this match. but i do agree, the commentators have to lay off the pro Andy shit. its really getting on my nerves, and i even like the guy.

Jelena Dokic.Vera Zvonareva.Tatiana Golovin.Mary Pierce.Monica Seles.Martina Hingis.Anna Kournikova

ESPN has promised to show Venus and Lindsay as well as Andy's match tomorrow, and I'm fairly sure they will show those matches, live or taped. I mean, hell, they showed Ferrero today

They already overcovered the boy when he won against Sanguinetti

Today was Ladies Day and we saw very little women's tennis!

Well, I am not complaining--am I ever!!! Liking everybody--or atleast making an effort not to despise anyone hardcore really helps because coverage will NEVER be "unbearable."

Venus is on centre court before Roddick so ther is no reason they shouldn't show Venus' match live in it's entirety.

So your obsession with Vera hasn't completely wiped out that love affair you had with Grande once upon a time!

Espn is showing a lot of women's matches. Today they showed Serena, Capriati, Harkleroad, Henin.

I hope they keep doing the same for the rest of the tournament

VENUS WILLIAMS
SERENA WILLIAMS
PAULA ORMAECHEA

Actually this Wimbledon has been horrendous. I only saw Serena's complete match, that was the only women's match I believe they even showed today.

And Monday was even worse, they just showed the end of Venus, Kim, and Lindsay's matches.

Clearly this Wimbledon is not about the women.

They showed Capriati and Serena's matches in their entirety already! Plus parts of Henin's and Dokic's matches...

Guys - I love women's tennis too, but honestly, I think y'all are whinging a bit much...so far there haven't been women's matches of nearly the same calibre/drama as the men's matches...I don't know what matches have made it on TV there, but the majority of the guys matches I've seen from being on the grounds have been 4 or five sets and decently close...even among the top seeds. The same cannot be said for the women (look at Clijsters half-hour match, for instance). And, yes, of course they should show the Roddick-Rusedski match : You have one of the title favorites and against one of the remaining Brits. How can Venus or Davenport stomping over another player compete with that?
