On ESPN's website their tv schedule says that they are showing andre agassi vs. Sebastian Grosjean at 1030... why would they do that?? This is the one match everyone has been talking about.. I think its' time we all let espn how know how we feel about this..

On TV they are scrolling that they will show Agassi vs Grosjean AND Davenport vs Henin-Hardenne.

They won't.

If Andre is playing, ESPN WILL show Andre.

Please don't get your hopes up.

It said that coverage tonight will be of both Andre and Lindsay. You'll notice on the schedule that Andre vs. Sebastien is AFTER Lindsay vs. Justine, so they're probably going to go with Lindsay's match first. They have been going in schedule order of matches of the one's they are planning on covering lately - which makes sense, as they can then tape all of their show and then show that rather than tape one part and then go back and make it seem like they have no idea what happened in the original match, which would be utterly ridiculous.

When has ESPN advertised a women's match when the men's top half is being played?

If Agassi is playing at 10:30, they will show him live. I'll be right, and let you know about it.

:rolleyes: They said both matches would be shown, and I'm betting Lindsay-Henin will be first.

I highly doubt it, but we shall see.

Since it's raining we should hope it rains more until we can see the lindsay-henin match live :p

They'll probably show match point of Henin-Davenport on tape. :rolleyes: We'll be lucky if we get a game or two which is pure :bs:

The rain delay should only be affecting the junior's matches, which were supposed to start an hour ago.

I'm assuming they'll use the roof on RLA.

I hope Lindsay totally SQUASHES JHH. I was really upset when i saw that JHH accused Lindsay of fabricating an injury! I would call that projection--JHH seems to have injuries and time-outs whenever convenient. I think JHH is a very poor sport!!!!!!!!

The roof is closed today on Rod Laver. The men's doubles match is
on right now. I'll be getting' my coverage today featuring Juju vs LD.
I feel gutted for you guys being screwed by ESPN.

They'll show Agassi live and whatever time's left, they'll show women's...:rolleyes:

Well, at least the dubs is going the distance so far!!! Who knows, the timing could still work out pretty well! 2 tiebreak sets and a long 3rd set, and there we go- live women's tennis quarterfinal!!!!

What is really sad is that I will probably sign off and not watch the match point by point on the internet just so I can enjoy it on TV. And then I'll get to see a few points of a match I chose to wait several hours for when I could have known the score in advance. ESPN sucks, but what else is new......Better than nothing I guess......

Oh, and go Etlis/Rodriguez, hold!!! Good now it's 3-3, now go Nestor/Knowles, hold!!!! I don't think I've ever been this much of a fair weather fan, but I just want this match to go LOOOOOONG!!!!!

Perfect, no breaks of serve, looks like another tiebreak, or at least a 3rd set...

This is working out perfectly!!! 2 long tiebreak sets split between the 2 doubles teams!!!! Now just keep it close in the second and we should definitely pick up live ladies action!!!! I don't think I ever wanted a men's doubles match to go long, but there's a first time for everything!

They will show Andre first, and eventually get around to showing Lindsay and Justine. I don't understand the suprise. They will show Lindsay and Justine in it's entirety whether it be tonight or tommorow.

It's possible if both Andre and Andy's matches go long, that they won't show the women's match.
