What will happen now that Federer isn't going to play his night match because Pavel withdraw? Are they going to put Venus and Lindsay at night like they should've anyway?!

I doubt it. I think that they're going to keep them scheduled at the same time so they can show it on CBS. It's all about the money/ratings.

No. Lindsay/Venus stay where they are. They have moved Sharapova/Myrni vs. Navratilova/Paes to Ash as the second night match.

If the Agassi-Sargsian match lasts as long as the Henman-Kiefer match, it'll become a night match anyway. Whatever the case may be, the Venus-Lindsay match deserves to be shown in its entirety, so if CBS can't do it, move it to 7:00 so USA can show it all.

Well...how long does CBS's coverage last? At the rate these matches are going, I wouldn't be surprised if CBS doesn't carry the entire Venus/Lindsay match :(.

Agassi should be done in 3 quick sets. Sargis is tired.

:( They should have moved Venus/Lindsay match to after Juju/Nadia :mad: At least Tim kept up his record of playing long 5 set matches here, hopefully Andre can play a long 5 setter too so Venus and Lindsay can play at night :) otherwise I won't get to watch the match coz our tv will be occupied by other family members till late tonight :o wish my family were into tennis like i am, make life so much easier

No, please donīt!!!

According to the updated schedule itīs gonna be Mariaīs mix-doubles match, I think it depends on how much time the Justine match will take.

It wouldnīt be fair to the people with day session tickets, if the Venus-Lindsay match will be a night-match and of course it wouldnīt be fair to all the Eurosport viewers like me;) Iīve been looking forward to this match all day (well, basically since the draw came out).

Sargis is cramping now. This looks to be a quick one...

Yep, this is what I think as well. Two retirements on one day... :confused:

I'd like Agassi to make quick work of Sarg so I can tape Venus and Lindsay :).

Thereīs no way Sargsian can make it through the match if it lasts longer than three sets. This could be a very quick one.

according to sky in the UK Lindsay and Venus are moving to the night slot with Justine and Nadia. Bit garbled but that was their story just now.

crowd havn't been told yet they said!

I can't watch the match no matter when they play it because my stupid local CBS station is interrupting the tennis for coverage of the aftermath of Hurricane Frances. I mean don't get me wrong, I totally feel for the people that are being affected (as am I, being i live in Orlando), but is it really necessary to show aftermath coverage? That's just over doing it a bit too much.


P.S.
Thanks for letting me vent.

CBS is being bitchy and decided to inform me on Clintons bypass surgery. RAH!

I hope they dont get moved to the night slot because then I'd have stayed in all day for no reason.

Well according to the schedule itīs still the same:

http://www.usopen.org/en_US/scores/schedule/index.html

Donīt think Venus and Lindsay will be pushed to the second night session match, I mean they have probably already waiting for two/three hours because of Kieferīs long match and it wouldnīt be fair to both of them.

I hope they just play the match now and CBS stays on the air with the match as late as 7PM and if it runs past 7, USA could pick up the coverage.

The four point bow means Agassi is done. It's getting closer. I'm getting nervous.

Sky says "Coverage from this court has now concluded" :confused:

How bloody stupid are Sky?! Why on earth have they taken interactive off just as Mary v Sveta is about to start?! :mad: Or has it been moved to the night match?!

They'd better show it tomorrow afternoon. Or fingers crossed Eurosport later today - though I'm not hopeful.

Scoreboard sayssveta/mary is on armstrong but hasn't started sky is indeed saying interactive has ended early. What is going on? They did say Lindsay and venus were moving to the night spot so spmeone has to be. perhaps its Sveta/Mary and the doubles to fill the slot but someone could be up to 3 AM if it all went wrong.

it is only fair to not move Venus/Lindsay match to night match.
If I bought a ticket at Arthur Ashe day today, I will be pissed as hell to see Henman vs Kiefer which was good until kiefer start tanking, and Agassi beating a player who is not as good anyway and also much too tired to give it a fight!!

ali
Sep 6th, 2004, 10:17 PM
Well Mary and Sveta are on court warming up so they're match hasn't been moved. I don't understand why Sky have cut the coverage early. Bet it would still be on if TimBoy was playing! :mad:


I'm so mad!

Eurosport are showing a recoding of a men's third round match from Saturday! :mad:

Tomorrow afternoon they will just show a repeat of the entire Henman match. Eurosport seem to have lost the plot and the rights to show any live matches! :rolleyes: :mad:

Sveta and mary are now playing. Sky have nothing, Eurosport have a last round mens match on - no one is covering it? Tennis Channel was were sky were getting it from. Have they gone to bed too? Well we did get Rennae in two doubles maytches but a GS 4th rd is a bit more important?
