View Full Version : What is happening with tennis coverage of Miami now that NCAA basketball is on ESPN?

Since CBS is pretty much dedicated to full-time coverage of the War in Iraq, what is happening with tennis coverage? Its supposed to start tomorrow, but will there still be any shows at all?

Please answer. :mad:

Its suppose to start tomorrow? I thought it started on Monday?

TV coverage starts tomorrow.

But bball is on, so what's gonna happen?

ESPN's coverage starts Sunday, I think.

They'd probably move tennis to ESPN2, or just live without it for a day.

with 24/7 news stations, such as CNN, MSNBC, why do stations like ABC, NBC, FOX and CBS feel the need to air it as well? It's not like all of them are airing something NEW...they are all showing the same thing!

It won't affect Tennis coverage at all...

It starts Sunday night on ESPN2.

Basketball won't be on again until next Thursday night, and CBS doesn't show war coverage at night (unless something really newsworthy happens).

What coverage? Oh, you mean when the tournament is already a third over? You must be talking about ESPN...how silly of me.

Mar 22nd, 2003, 02:06 AM
I think ESPN will show the finals now.
