Women's Final Is On One Hour Delay

The women's final is being broadcast on a one hour time-delay. The USOpen site was correct when it says 7pm. This is a shame for the fans. I wish USA Network was covering this live.

The match will probably be over by the time it starts on TV.

Re: Women's Final Is On One Hour Delay

Re: Women's Final Is On One Hour Delay

what the heck? What kind of second rate operation are they running? Who in their right minds shows a major sporting event on tape delay? :retard:

this is on par (excuse the pun ) with the crap the LPGA does in their limited TV time slots ... and that is not a good thing!

For as long as I remember, the USopen finals have been starting at 2am my time meaning 8pm local time

Who is spreading this smut? It is not being shown taped. Get out of town. CBS and the USTA are not THAT dumb.

Re: Women's Final Is On One Hour Delay

They just got the time wrong on the site... Which is particularly dumb obviously. They deal with hundreds of matches during the tourney and now one final, they don't get it right
