OT: ESPN's Montreal coverage

Did they show any of today's matches other than the Agassi match?

When I turned the TV on just after lunch, there were apparently in a rain delay, since they showed Mirnyi/Hewitt from last night -- when they should have shown the end live last night rather than going to the second set of the Davydenko match. I had to do some work for a few hours, and when I turned the TV on again around 4.30, they were punishing fans by repeating their Golden Boy's match from last night.

Apparently, they've been able to get more than the Agassi match finished today -- but did they actually show any of the other matches? (I have a feeling they didn't, but I didn't get to see all the coverage.)

They showed Agassi's complete match, then whatever they showed of Roddick. They do this sort of stupid thing all the damn time which is why I turn it off. No need to let them think I'm watching when I'm really pissed

They did show a game and a half of Schuettler-Novak, though only to undercut Schuettler and remind everyone about how he got spanked in the Aussie Open final (it'll be a rematch tomorrow).

It just pisses me off so much when there was live tennis going on

who wants to see Schutler vs. Novak? Honestly they do what is going to be best for TV ratings, and even most tennis fans don't want to see some boring players they haven't heard of. Gosh I was furious when they were showing Acabuscka or whatever vs. Larose. I was like, "they show some crapshoot mens players and yet can't even bring us ONE early round women's match from non slam tournaments ".

They should show the most exciting live match, if they are having live coverage. Who do we get tonight, oh yes Roddick and than tomorrow we get Agassi. Just like we have all week, thats why I hope for Roddick and Agassi to lose early in tourments that are covered by ESPN. And I hate how Pat McEnore almost sucks up to Roddick. When he played Malisse and Malisse won the first set *gasp* Roddick might have been outplayed. And when Roddick was broken twice that set *gasp*, you can't break Roddick, what was Malisse thinking!? Sorry I had to vent a little, its just at ESPN.
