Sorry ladies, but A-Rod TV at the USO

Well, at the USO this year Andy Roddick will be the toast of the tournament. He has won two straight masters series titles and gained the #1 position.

I hate to say it, but I think this is gonna give men's tennis a surge and the women will be left behind at the USO. You have Roger Federer, Juan Carlos, Agassi, Mardy Fish is starting to play well, Moya, among other players on the ATP.

Now while I've always been a strong believer that the women outshine the men, with no Serena, Monica, Lindsay half injured, Mauresmo out, Kournikova almost retired, Venus trying to recover the good days of 1999 are gone.

The new girls cannot challenge Kim or Justine at the moment at all. So I think we will see alot of easy matches for them til the finals. Hopefully a good match will come then, but don't hold your breath.

TNT is covering the USO, so get ready for ANDY TV!!! I guess he will just have to do.

USA network is covering the US Open, along with CBS. USA seems to like the women. They had balanced coverage last year.

Venus, Jenn and the men.

BTW, I saw my first commercial for the US Open today. TNT, I guess, given where it was on the 'dial'. The only two players in it were Agassi and Venus. And Venus got twice as much screen time.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

I think if you have favorite American tennis players you should be fine (male or female). I expect Roddick to have many night matches.
I think any network other than ESPN will be much better

I'm just glad that ESPN doesn't have the US Open, I thought USA did a good job of covering matches last year. Will someone please, please fire Patrick McEnroe! God I can't stand him and hope to that some how he doesn't make his way onto the USA network. Because of Patrick McEnroe I now hate Andy Roddick more than ever.

I have a feeling that Roddick will not win the US Open (although he's considered a favorite). And I really hope Brad Gilbert DOES NOT commentate... he's kind of a vile creature... very disrespectful to other players... I'm rooting for Federer, Guga, Younnes, and Keifer...

I have a feeling Andy Will lose very early...I mean...winning a TMS (twice in two weeks) and a Slam almost the following week...on the men's tour is VERY hard...hell I would not even expect Serena to do it.

Roddick is an annoying fuckwad. I hope that his airtime can be easily avoided. :retard:

You know what? USA is doing TV coverage, and they do an amazing job. They show ALL the top players...not just Americans.

We'll see a lot of Kim-Justine-Lindsay-Venus...as well as Federer-Roddick-Agassi ect.
