Even today, when they showed a lot of good tennis, they managed to spoil it by their unprofessionalism. Like during the changeover of Myskina-Rubin match, when it was 3:2 in the third set, they showed the current scores and one of them was "Rod Laver Arena, Nalbandyan-Canas 6:4, 4:1". Knowing that Myskina-Rubin are also on RLA, not only it was an obvious indication that the match they show is taped ( which was completely unnecessary ), given that their match is already almost 2 hours long, you can easily calculate that the match has very little time left, which meant that from that point it was completed very quickly. At that point I was sure that Myskina would quickly roll through the rest of the match.

Let me say this:
I completely understand why ESPN does what it does...but it doesn't mean I like it
