I was wondering the same thing.

They hyped up Vaidisova to beat Momo so much and they got their wish.
Now they're not even showing Nicole. :lol::tape:

Livestreaming on channelsurfing.net is working for me though.

Weird if they dont show a women's quarterfinal and show all these earlier round men's matches. :o (didn't show Bartoli but this match is a little different)....this coverage :weirdo:

NBC shows Americans and Federer. The first women's match was almost unwatchable. They are showing world class tennis, not women.

Venus vs. Kuznetsova was actually very high quality. Just because the American beat the Russian doesn't mean it was poor quality.

:lol: oh goldenlox...

Although I only saw the last two games of the first quarterfinal.

Thanks God that channelsurfing.net exist.

Yeah that's right it wasn't working for me the link to centre court but I just waited like 10 minutes and it worked. So be a little more patient.

It's a pretty poor quality match anyway. Well, the first set was. :lol:

Grrr, I hate this court jumping by Star Sports. Not only are they depriving me of Ivanovic vs. Vaidisova, they're also depriving me of VIRGINIA WADE ON COMMENTARY! :(

Now theyre on the third set...Blah and ESPN is pretending like the match doesnt exist. :o

This is how womens' tennis gets a bad name.. Ana/Nicole is a higher quality match than Venus/Sveta was and more dramatic. Sveta lost her confidence after she failed to break Venus and never looked like winning it. At this point, either Ana or Nicole could take it.

I agree- Youzhny is not an attraction... and Nikki/Ana is on center court. :mad:

WTF? This QF is showing on Centre Court, and ESPN is not even giving it any airtime. Ivanovic and Vaidisova are currently fighting through a dramatic third set. Is ESPN planning to replay it later? It's obvious that Mary Joe must be doing commentary for it right now.

It's not that great of match anyway. I hope Ana wins; I can't stand the Y chromosome on the other side of the net. It's too bad men's tennis isn't B/3--the butt scratching monkey would have been out in two.

Actually, I thought Venus' match was pretty good. Sveta was playing well too.

I find the Ana vs Nicole match a bit boring, although it has gone to a third set.

Wow, they're showing the match on tv now. :eek:

The worst in all of this that Ana is the sexiest brunette on tour and Nicole the sexiest blonde. What kind of network is that? High quality 3rd set drama and the two cuttest on tour ............

It's a business. The networks show the players they can prove to the sponsors that the most people want to see. Take the Williams sisters out of the equation, and the public wants to see the gentlemen more than the ladies.

That said, ESPN is showing the last half set of Ivanovic-Vaidisova. Both of them are young, fit, white, not-unattractive, and tomorrow the winner be seen by a huge TV audience when they play Venus. A golden opportunity to break through to the American market, right before the max TV of the US Open series.

They are both at the point where they could become stars. Or wind up with an Elena Dementieva type career.
