Serena has just won the second set 7-5.
We will see the dramatic conclusion to the match with the 3rd set when ESPN continues coverage at 9pm tonight.
I know it was unlucky that ESPN could not cover the match, but we cannot blame or curse out ESPN. Instead, the Australian Open organizers should have put this prized matchup at a better time. ESPN's scheduling is defined while the order of play is made up daily. Don't get mad at ESPN, get mad at Tennis Australia!
At least we can see Serena close out the match in the third set. :]

how do you know ESPN isn't going to start the match from the beginning at 9pm and show it delayed?

Hopefully they won't do that.

I think they'll have enough common sense to show it live.

Hopefully they won't do that.

I think they'll have enough common sense to show it taped.

how is that common sense when there's still live tennis to come?

Maybe. :/! I didn't think of that. I just think it would be so silly considering Federer, Kuznetsova, and Mauresmo will be on if the tape is shown. Well, if they do that, I will allow the ESPN anger to resume. :[

I think showing the match live and with drama would be ESPN's best option! Serena is up 1-0 in the 3rd! I must say, I am pleasantly surprised with Serena. I really thought Petrova was going to take this easily. Come on Serena! ( and Come on ESPN2! Show it live. :] )

I NEED TO SEE YOUZHNY. So they better show all of Fed/Youzhny live, god dammit. Also, Kirilenko/Kuznetsova should be a good match and definitely Gasquet/Monfils. They should NOT play Serena/Petrova from the beginning on tape delay (if that is their plan) until after live tennis is over and before Safin/Roddick begins at 3:30 am. I'll be really pissed if we miss live tennis because of fucking Nadia Petrova.

Serena is like Muhammed Ali. You have to knock her down and keep her down. If you knock her down and let her get up off the floor she will kill you. And that is what is happening to Petrova right now.

In a "coming up next" they showed the players walking onto the court. That implies to me that they'll show it from the beginning.

I hate ESPN. I bet they'll show it from the beginning. I hate them.

If they show it from the beginning, just be glad you're getting to watch your favorite player at all.

In the entire tournament, I have seen my favorite player complete a total of two points while some of you have seen two matches.

how could they make a last minute decision like this? OR isn't it last minute?

Leo_DFP
Jan 19th, 2007, 12:59 AM
Well my favorite is playing Federer today, and I want to see him live. If ESPN blows this for me, when they can show the rest of the 3rd set live and the beginning of the match later on after live tennis, then I will be pissed.

Nah if anything they will show the Serena/Petrova match again tomorrow, but i can't see them showing taped stuff directly after live stuff. That would be weird even for them.

Something I noticed is ... look at the ESPN2 sign in the top right -- it doesn't say live. :[

OMG. I'm writing ESPN about this. They're gonna show Serena on tape from the beginning. Way to ruin the drama.

Canada's coverage doesnt start until 10! Who has a livestream for america's ESPN? I would love to watch the match either way.

It doesn't say live, and it would say live if it was! Also, they would have gone to Serena immediately. I hate these idiots.

those stupid, bastard cock suckers. :fiery:

As soon as i saw Petrova-Williams first on the schedule, i knew that this is going to happen. Why the f*ck couldn't they put them as the second match and then ESPN would HAVE to show it live

Should I keep watching the scoreboard online? Or should I try and save some drama to see how it ends on TV?

Pathetic. They would normally show this at 3pm tommorow but they are gonna be whoring Duckboy and marat. Its a shame when you claim live when its not. I dont even wanna see the ugly first set.

If Serena wins this, do we consider this a choke for Petrova? She was up 5-3 in the 2nd.

Fiiinnnaaalllly...someone talking about Serena's matches. Thank you. Some of us don't get to see much of the TV coverage so it is great to come here and find out how Serena is doing. Sounds like an awesome match...Serena is doing better every match!
