Well then you should have tuned in earlier! This is the dumbest decision EVER and a total slap in the face. Those bastards promised us the Hewitt vs. Nadal match, but I guess they're too freakin' terrified to show a non-American matchup. Assholes. I will NEVER watch ESPN again.

When the hell are they going to show Kim??? She is the only top player they have not shown.
I guess I will root for Chanda to get to the QF, then maybe I can see Kim play.

Dude, they showed the whole match, and then the tiebreaker AGAIN tonight. This evening.

If they are doing this at the expense of Hewitt/Nadal, there will be hell to pay. Too bad they have this allergy to Spaniards there :rolleyes:

Don't mean to sound rude but if Venus won this match you wouldn't be so energetic about recording it.

I think this is a gloating thread because Venus lost....

Sorry if I sound rude but it is my honest opinion.

I saw the score online before going to night work, and was contemplating on recording over a Disney movie... but I'm glad I didn't, great to hear it will be on tomorrow!

Well, I had to work so I would've missed it had they broadcast it anyway, but I am glad they are repeating it.

What crap. I've been looking forward to Hewitt-Nadal since the draw came out, and even if it's a one sided affair, I want to see how much Nadal has improved. They've been promising it for two days. FUCK YOU ESPN ;)

I really don't see a reason why they should reair the match. But maybe ESPN is happy to show Venus losing. Pam sure was excited, and energetic about the upset. LOL

I already knew Venus lost before I even checked on the computer because I thought to myself why would ESPN show a women's match from the beginning of coverage? That is usually out of step with their programming.

What a stupid decision to re-air the match when other players are still playing. They could at least show Kim, or someone who did not have air time. Their is no need to show Venus losing again.

Booooo @ ESPN. I've yet to see ANY Clijsters. If they felt the need to replay this, they could have condensed it and shown *at least* highlights of the other 64 players left in the draw. Once was plenty.

OMG! DOES ESPN HAVE TO SHOW L-RAY TWICE???!!! I'M SO TIRED OF ESPN'S LOVE FOR AMERICANS!!!

Had they shown Canas-Henman over the much promised Hewitt-Nadal, I would have totally understood. What they ended up doing was simply disgusting. There was NO reason they couldn't have chopped up the Venus-Raymond match and made time for others.

Anyways... not long from now, Nadal will start making the second week of Grand Slam events. At this point, ESPN will churn out articles about how nobody in America knows or cares who he is, and they'll have nobody but themselves to blame.

I hate Lisa Raymond. All I wanted to do was watch Anastasia make Maria cry. But I didn't get to. They said they would show it. But they didn't. Why? Because Venus lost and they showed it twice. Anastasia? A 5 minute clip. Was originally the marquee match-up. Fuck ESPN.

Do you have ESPN? Because ESPN showed the last two sets of the Nastya/Masha match after Venus/Lisa. After the Russian matchup, they showed the 2nd set tiebreak again.

I Hate Life! How Did I Miss That Match! Maybe Because They Showed It Taped? Probably!

But More Importantly I Hate Espn!

Why Did I Have To Fall Asleep!

ESPN is hopeless. Even when they were showing Myskina-Sharapova, they mentioned Lisa and Venus fifty times, cut away to Brad Gilbert's "analysis," and kept hyping their big Raymond interview. The announcers go into genuine panic mode every time there isn't an American citizen on the screen. If Agassi and Roddick somehow both lose tonight, the entire network's gonna commit mass suicide.

Does anybody remember when their much hoped for Andre-Andy final at the USO was almost one point away from resulting in a Nalbandian-Ferrero final? Oh, that was almost such a beautiful day. Almost. Next time ;)

Let's hope so. I'm not going to get carried away and really believe that, though. Nalbandian is a bit of a flake.
