No ESPN!!!!! I'm so happy USA is broadcasting the US Open. They show so many good matches and it is not all based on when the American players are playing. And it is always live (unless there is rain) which means we won't have to watch the same match over and over again!

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Our tennis coverage is mostly mens tennis, and mostly Aussies like Hewitt and Scud. Whenever they show womens tennis they tend to show only a few games of the least interesting match, for example they'll probably show Clijsters vs Liu
But I cant wait either, at least I'll get to see SOME tennis after so long!

Plus, for us fans of Justine, they have no choice but to televise her matches sometimes, since she is the 2nd seed. And the same goes for Kim fans, you will get to see your fave a lot more than you are used to, since she is top seed. This is an unusual treat for American fans of one or both Belgians! Can't wait!

I love the USA coverage. Only if they would keep shwing the french Open like they used to. I love the commentating and I love watching the good LIVE matches and they show some dubs too. Its good to see that the USA is showing the US Open

My Forever Fav: Jelena Dokic

Serena Williams, Ana Ivanovic

You mean we'll get coverage outside of american men/men/american women? I hope so!

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!


Sorana Cirstea - Stefanie Voegele - Michelle Larcher de Brito - Alexandra Dulgheru
