...none of us are going to get to see it on TV? Any chance of ESPN shifting and covering the match since it's high profile or no?

Maybe not live, but I guarantee we'll see it on tape delay once coverage gets underway.

If it happens, I want to see it. I don't care if it's taped. ESPN better air it. I mean, WTF is up with Poker on a sports channel???

best shot of watching a taped showing is if its either a great match, or if masha wins. since shes such a big draw they like to show her matches when she wins, just like with serena and andy rodick. if she loses then we'll just see clips.

so another reason we should all root for masha!

Pretty sure Venus is American and is a big name so ESPN wouldn't have any problem showing her win either...

Today is the first round; friday and saturday is the second round; sunday is the third round. it'll be on if it happens.

what part do you not agree with? you think in espn’s eyes that venus is bigger than masha?!? they have an order of importance. glad that some of my favorites are on the top, but most of the times the make the dumbest decisions and most people who like tennis and watch espn know what i mean.

heres’ the espn order from what i can tell:
1. agassi (when he was playing)
.
.
.
.
.
2. rodick / serena /
3. federer / masha
4. nadal
5. james blake / venus
6. American men
7. American women
8. Justine
9. the top atp players
10. the top wta players

don’t get me wrong they will show venus over any non-american, but she’s not as high profile with espn as serena and masha are.

so another reason we should all root for masha!If you think Sharapova gets higher TV ratings than Venus, you're living proof the crack epidemic is still in full swing. Ratings = money, and that's all that interests ESPN.

It´s so sad that Eurosport won´t show the match if Maria and Venus meet :rolleyes:.

They start coverage from the fourth round on Monday and even than you´re not sure which match they will show.

TomTennis
Mar 22nd, 2007, 11:23 PM
Nope, actually I was right :p

Eurosport 2 are showing Live WTA Miami from 15.45 for an hour, but because it is live im guessing they will show the entire match and not just an hour of it.

Now all we need is for the tournament organisers to schedule it at the right time.

so when do Vee and Maria play? (assuming they both get to rd. 3)
it's on Monday right? their side of the draw will play Thur, Sat & Mon?

If you have no nielsen ratings to back this up, might as well shut up.

eat my ass! just offering my opinion, nothing more. :confused: dont have to agree, sharring how i see espn and who they always show.

if masha and venus are playing at the same time, it will be interesting to see who they decide to show.

excuse me? ur crazy if you think masha is a bigger draw than venus. what type of stuff are you smoking sugar?, surely masha is a big draw and all, but she will never be bigger than venus. if you dont belive me just check venus's tv ratings versus masha's, then get back with me on this. i get so tired of people like you, that try to convince sane people on the brilliance on masha. let me break it down. sugar, just because she's the highest paid in endorsments right now, dont mean she's more popular or better. get it?, somehow i dont think you do.:help:

Um, Venus is a big draw for tennis fans in the states too. I think they'll show it regardless of the winner.

So now that Maria won, do you think ESPN will show a repeat broadcast of this match? If it rains they'd be out of their minds not to. Once coverage begins out best bet of having footage of the match would come from rain delays during live coverage. Or am I wrong, and has someone finally uploaded the match?
