Henman, henman,henman and more henman! i hate this man... ive got 2 days off and thought i might see a few decent matchs but he's hogged up the coverage for today and when he eventually looses brit eurosport will probably be analyzing and lmourning his defeat for the rest of the day!

i hate him!

Well, in Germany, we get coverage from 2 channels, one will begin his coverage at 2pm. Eurosport shows Tennis since 11am. First, we saw Sandrine vs Justine, got the last minutes of the match Petrova-Castano and now they show Agassi vs Haenel (?)...

Taped coverage of Agassi on ESPN2 here in the States with no mention of the women's matches.

I'd greatly appeciate any feedback on the first Chatrier match. Thanks.

ESPN2 now gives "updated" scores that are, in reality, over an hour old. ESPN is an embarrassment to the sport. Live action on 16 courts and they can't show any of it?

Then you have Michael Jackson & that name speaks for itself, no hype needed at all.

Hmmm... first Agassi on ESPN, then Davenport. Boy, I wonder if Roddick, Serena, Venus and Capriati will be up next and tomorrow?

Henman in a great comeback in a 5-setter live? I mean, why would anyone want to see something like that when they can watch taped coverage of match that wasn't close? I just wonder why ESPN bothers to go on air at 8am. They could start at 12 noon and have the exact same show.

I know ESPN got a lot of complaints for the coverage last year. And this is their response to it. Essentially, a big middle finger to anyone who actually bothers to tune in to watch.

My coverage is the same international feed as Australia's Fox Sport's.
We had the entire Justine match, then onto the Paradorn, switched over
to Coria, then onto taped Agassi ending last set, live back to Lindsay entire
match, then taped ending games of Henman, then now live with Roddick.
Pretty good.
