We took the US coverage of the US Open night session prior to 1999 and I remember one year - I think 1998, the match was Philipoussis vs someone, and instead of showing that showed a tape delayed match between the Jenson bros. IMO that's totally stupid. Now we have our own coverage, commentators aren't good but we don't get tape delayed at night sessions(unless its in a rain delay)

Venus? what are you talking about? she got about as much air time as Lindsay so....
Anyway I will give you Roddick though, yikes, I mean showing a match is one thing he is the world #1. But all the little extra clips at every free moment are a bit much.
I guess the Venus hype is on hold until tomorrow, when she's the big American in action. That initial post was based on the first five minutes, when ESPN established Andy, Andre, Venus, and Lindsay as the only players they care about. (Shocking!) Since then it's been all Roddick, all the time. I almost fell over laughing when Cliff Drysdale announced, "when we come back, we'll talk about Andy Roddick." He's all they were talking about already! Watching this US coverage, you really get the impression the other 127 men dropped out of the tournament.
ergggg..it's pathetic......they show Justine with a 6-0,6-0 win but won't show an exciting one!! Morigami and Pelletier were having a tight 3 setter....but they showed THAT boring excuse for a match...It really does SUCK!
what i hate is that roddick and gonzalez were at 2-2 in the second when karlovic and fish went into a third set tb on a camera court. i mean, come on, at least show me a few points of that match coverage, of course, ended right after roddick really, really boring match
The transmition has started, as usual, at 22 hs.......but they are showing Hewitt vs. Mammit, the match they shown live 21 hours ago!!!
They have about twenty matchs being played right now! but they are repiting last night show.
For example.... Agassi vs Berdych, or Kuerten vs. Ljubicic
Akenatón rules, Horemheb sucks
