Serena/Petrova to be on ESPN2 in 20 minutes.

Serena has just won the second set 7-5.
We will see the dramatic conclusion to the match with the 3rd set when ESPN continues coverage at 9pm tonight.
I know it was unlucky that ESPN could not cover the match, but we cannot blame or curse out ESPN. Instead, the Australian Open organizers should have put this prized matchup at a better time. ESPN's scheduling is defined while the order of play is made up daily. Don't get mad at ESPN, get mad at Tennis Australia!
At least we can see Serena close out the match in the third set. :]

Re: Serena/Petrova to be on ESPN2 in 20 minutes.

how do you know ESPN isn't going to start the match from the beginning at 9pm and show it delayed?

Hopefully they won't do that.

I think they'll have enough common sense to show it live.

Re: Serena/Petrova to be on ESPN2 in 20 minutes.

Maybe. :/! I didn't think of that. I just think it would be so silly considering Federer, Kuznetsova, and Mauresmo will be on if the tape is shown. Well, if they do that, I will allow the ESPN anger to resume.

Re: Serena/Petrova to be on ESPN2 in 20 minutes.

I think showing the match live and with drama would be ESPN's best option! Serena is up 1-0 in the 3rd! I must say, I am pleasantly surprised with Serena. I really thought Petrova was going to take this easily. Come on Serena! ( and Come on ESPN2! Show it live. :] )

Re: Serena/Petrova to be on ESPN2 in 20 minutes.

I NEED TO SEE YOUZHNY. So they better show all of Fed/Youzhny live, god dammit. Also, Kirilenko/Kuznetsova should be a good match and definitely Gasquet/Monfils. They should NOT play Serena/Petrova from the beginning on tape delay (if that is their plan) until after live tennis is over and before Safin/Roddick begins at 3:30 am. I'll be really pissed if we miss live tennis because of fucking Nadia Petrova.

Re: Serena/Petrova to be on ESPN2 in 20 minutes.

Serena is like Muhammed Ali. You have to knock her down and keep her down. If you knock her down and let her get up off the floor she will kill you. And that is what is happening to Petrova right now.

Re: Serena/Petrova to be on ESPN2 in 20 minutes.

In a "coming up next" they showed the players walking onto the court. That implies to me that they'll show it from the beginning.

I hate ESPN. I bet they'll show it from the beginning. I hate them.

Re: Serena/Petrova to be on ESPN2 in 20 minutes.

If they show it from the beginning, just be glad you're getting to watch your favorite player at all.

In the entire tournament, I have seen my favorite player complete a total of two points while some of you have seen two matches.

Re: Serena/Petrova to be on ESPN2 in 20 minutes.

how could they make a last minute decision like this? OR isn't it last minute?

Re: Serena/Petrova to be on ESPN2 in 20 minutes.

Well my favorite is playing Federer today, and I want to see him live. If ESPN blows this for me, when they can show the rest of the 3rd set live and the beginning of the match later on after live tennis, then I will be pissed.
