I know that's right. It's very fraustrating. Also, all next week they will be showing the early rounds of the ATP Mercedes-Benz tournament. Why not the WTA tournaments? Then they show all of these re-runs of interviews and other crap. If they don't step it up, the TTC is not going to survive.

ESPN and ESPN2 have exclusive rights to US Open series events, which BOW is.

Isn't the Mercedes-Benz tournament a part of the US Open event?

ESPN doesn't have exclusive rights. CBS, FSNE, they are also showing some matches at some of the tournaments.

Maybe they didn't have a contract to show the early rounds.
