ESPN Coverage SUCKS!!!!!!!



What a fucking damn coverage they are doing this year! Last year it was a complete coverage with even results on the bottom marquee, and more longer! Now, pfffffffffffffff only few hours, and no results going down there

Why are we getting more and more worse coverages??
Well better than nothing.....

EVEN THO' IM SAD AND MAD AT ESPN!

Becool, I was actually happy with this coverage, It is about 6 hours a day. today they showed also Venus vs Lamade, a little Hantuchova vs Black, Guga vs The swiss guy, Leyton and Andre Sa.

I am happy to see some women tennis on tv. We gotta pray for Rodick, Sampras loss in 1 st round, and that's it. We got more women coverage.

But, really, I think it is a nice coverage.

ESPN showed today the second set between Venus and Bianka. Tomorrow the coverage will start at 9AM (Argentina) until 3PM. LIVE (if it is not raining)

Today later, in Sportcenter, they showed also an interview with Paola Suarez after beating Sandrine.

I am hoping for more tomorrow

espn lo que da es lastima su cobertura se vio reducida a solo tres horas nada mas y hubo pocos partidos de tennis femenino que es lo que deseamos ver, ojala espn haga lo que hace en estados unidos y transmita wta, que no se hagan los locos

Hi, we are speaking english here, cos Becool for example is Brazilian and doesnt speak spanish

By the way, today coverage was great for WTA. With all those rain delay, ESPN showed Seles vs. Montolio, Clijsters vs. Poutchek, Henin vs. Kapros.

I think this is pretty much than nothing

I agree, ESPN should cover WTA events like they do with ATP. But, for a while ( 2 weeks) we can watch our faves playing again

The commentator said they will show Serena tomorrow, but I think it will be taped, cos' coverage starts 9 AM (Argentina time) and the game starts at 7 AM ( Argentina time) and Serena is the first on central court.

But, really, I am glad to see some women tennis on tv, last time I saw Venus was in US Open 2001, and yesterday I was really happy after all this time.

BYE
