View Full Version : Who will ESPN show tomorrow??

Mar 23rd, 2003, 12:31 AM
Coverage begins @ 12:00 pm USA west coast time...will it be a tape delay of the 11:00 am match? Guess they won't be showing Serena.

Mar 23rd, 2003, 12:35 AM
3 pm eastern time...

Mar 23rd, 2003, 01:42 AM
They will probably show Jen.

Mar 23rd, 2003, 02:00 AM
trust me it will be a mens match.

Venus Forever
Mar 23rd, 2003, 02:01 AM
trust me it will be a mens match.

Either that or Capriati. :rolleyes:

Mar 23rd, 2003, 02:02 AM
Usually Jen takes precedence after Andre & Andy. ;)

Mar 23rd, 2003, 02:27 AM
According the website:

"Sunday will mark the beginning of live television broadcasts as ESPN2 will feature No. 2 Venus Williams against Emmanuelle Gagliardi at 3 p.m. on Stadium Court."

Mar 23rd, 2003, 02:42 AM
Venus is playing two days in a row? :confused:

Mar 23rd, 2003, 03:29 AM
[QUOTE='1jackson2001']Venus is playing two days in a row? :confused:

yes, she said so in her interview in GM!! I guess it's the norm for this tourney for her to play two days in a row!! I don't remember last year if she did :p

i figured it would be my queen, hopefully church will get out on "time" seeing i go to a black baptist church, service starts at 11am, an we are usually done around 1:45-2pm :(....although god is good and i get my praise on. Im gonna still set my VCR!

Mar 23rd, 2003, 11:38 AM
Since they said we are seeing Venus that can only mean that we are really going to see Mardy Fish (USA) vs Nicolas Escude (FRA) on Grandstand!

Mar 23rd, 2003, 02:45 PM
Knowing ESPN it's a highlight of Venus' match :rolleyes:

Mar 23rd, 2003, 04:39 PM
Yay I hope they do show Emmanuelle :D

Mar 23rd, 2003, 05:58 PM
I'm confused... It's 2pm Eastern, right now the Lakers and Spurs are on and it's only the 2nd quarter. They keep putting up an "ALERT" that says You are watching the Lakers vs. Spurs for continuing WAR coverage go to ABC. Were the Lakers supposed to be on ABC? The score board shows ABC logo instead of ESPN! I better see some tennis today! :mad:

Mar 23rd, 2003, 06:11 PM
is that on Espn or Espn2

tennis comes on Espn2

also i think Venus has precedence of Mardy Fish
normal viewers would be like, Mardy who?

Mar 23rd, 2003, 06:51 PM
its already 3 PM eastern time. racing on ESPN2

Mar 23rd, 2003, 07:08 PM
Arghh!! Stupid rain!

Mar 23rd, 2003, 07:14 PM
Lucky Jen fans, they could see their fav's match now.

Mar 23rd, 2003, 07:20 PM
I told you we would end up seeing Jen. ;) I wish they would show some of the Sarah vs. Ai match.

Mar 23rd, 2003, 07:45 PM
w/out rain we would've saw Venus, but clearly Jennifer would've been the next best choice, seeing throughout the week they will want to show non stop men's coverage, but w/ their seeds starting to drop and dissappear, this tournie is looking like Agassi to win, and they will be forced to show the womens cuz ratings wise we do'nt want to see number 102 vs. 96 :)

Mar 23rd, 2003, 09:35 PM
ESPN did their usual piss-poor job of covering tennis...cause the rain delay we got to see Capriati, which is okay, only we only got about 30 minutes of the Vee-Em match. Would it have killed them to show the entire thing and postponed golf??? :mad:

Mar 24th, 2003, 03:19 AM
just thought I'd share this: I watched the 2hr coverage. I never turned off the TV in my room and was busy in the other room. I came back and they interupted the Golf to show Venus's score and her waving to the crowd. I swear it was 30 seconds! Unreal! I really think that ESPN shouldn't pick up tennis in MARCH! There is too much going on w/ hockey, baseball Spring Training comes to an end, and of course MARCH MADNESS (NCAA B-ball)! I wish HBO or someone would pick it up!

Mar 24th, 2003, 03:38 AM
And tomorrow we will be just in time to see Andre. :mad: I hope Amelie's match and Hen's match takes 2 hours each. ;)

Mar 24th, 2003, 03:45 AM
We get to see Iroda-Serena I think as well... :)

Mar 24th, 2003, 04:06 AM
what will espn do when he retires
if you ask 92% of america..andy who? james who? mardy what? is that some kind of drink?

Mar 24th, 2003, 05:07 AM
no lets hope amelie and henin win very, and i mean very quickly, that will hopefully get andre on court before the coverage starts...and are the live tomorrow? if so, then we just might get to see serena, but if they aren't live, no serena, it will definetly be Andre :evil:

Mar 24th, 2003, 05:41 AM
nope we should be okay :)

coverage tomorrow(Monday) begins at 1 pm ET which is 2 hrs after coverage begins. So it looks like we will get to see the tail end of Capriati-Taylor and then some andre coverage ;)
