this is the first time this tournie is ever going to even get televised!

is it b/c serena has entered? it sure is to me like a last minute decision to televise the tournie! they never used to televise it. i wanted to see venus def davenport in 2000 6-4 6-1. they said she played so great and had like 16 aces! damn i hope serena is firing and just as dangerous!

It's televised every year. The only thing is that it's been usually on the local channel five station or on fox sports net, I think atleast one year. I can't recall them ever having the quarters on tv, but maybe that was on eurosport or something.

I guess we will be getting tape delay of Jenn vs. Maria. At this point I don't care! I just want to see a good match! Taped or Live!

I can find NO MENTION of this tournament in my digital cable PROGRAM GUIDE for ESPN2. Me thinks that once again we are getting shafted. :(

Same with me! Why doesn't ESPN show anything anymore? I don't think they are showing the Canadian Open this year too. And the Bank of the West website has different times that I have found here.

I think they will show it today on ESPN 2 at 1:30 Pacific, because that's when the Capriati vs. Vento-Kabchi match begins.

Jeff what are you basing that on?

Jeff
Jul 26th, 2003, 08:51 PM
Because it says on the tournament website that it'll show on ESPN 2 at 1:30.

I dont think they are showing it...My direct Tv doesnt have any mention of it either...Espn has done this before. a match up like this that wont bring in the ratings soo they probably cancelled it or something...maybe they will show the finals

if they scheduled to show the semis and are not showing them then they will not show the finals either. bet you on that!

Jeff

Lol...ok I strike that. I just checked the tvguide website, and it shows that it will show on ESPN 2 at 3pm (pacific). This website is very reliable when it comes to sport schedules. So well let's hope :)

So we still don't know for sure if or when ESPN will be showing the semi? GRRRRR!!!! I hope it's at 4:30, but 6:00 sounds more likely to me.

yeah i saw that too but it is weird that my digital cable shows no mention of it. but sometimes that can be wrong I guess. Hope tv guide is right

sorry those pages appear to have the same address but if you click on

tournament

and then click on "home"

you will see two different times listed in the lower right.

I have digital cable too and I don't see any mention of it on my schedule. However, the ESPN website says that it will be shown at 6:00, so I don't know what to believe.
