I doubt very much we'll see a full RD 16. Lindsay/Dementieva is probably the best RD 16 match, followed by Jen/Schiavone then Venus/Zuluaga.

But we'll probably see Serena, since she seems to be NBC's darling

Here's what ticked me off about today's coverage.

1-the commericals after each game (which was done so they wouldn't have to show another match)

2-Why did they even show Serena (Serena to NBC is like Andre and Roddick to ESPN)? Had Serena been facing Pierce or Bovina it would be one thing...but a virtual unknown (like all of Serena's draw thus far)? Venus and Jennifer clearly had the tougher third round matches, and Jen went three.

3-The pathetic hours. It's too short.

I agree that Serena's match was pretty boring but I think they showed it because ESPN was showing Capriati vs. Bovina.

I did not watch the whole thing; all I know is that I turned it off at 6-3 in the Venus match, I came back about an hour later and it was 6-3 2-0...I was like :scared:

I think the problem is that they have to decide ahead of time what matches they will show. and the sponsors; not knowing anything about tennis think that Venus+Serena=Huge ratings and $$$$.
