Re: ESPN 2, stop showing men's matches

It's not like they just show men's matches. They usually show the highest seeds or players that are in "trouble" of being a major upset. Djokovic is a well known player and did lose the first set. There will be women's matches on tomorrow.

Do you have a computer? Go to espn360.com and you can see matches of your choice. If enough people watch women's matches on espn360 maybe they will get the message

Not everyone who has a computer has access to espn360. It's something that has to be worked out with your internet providers.

Re: ESPN 2, stop showing men's matches

I just hate when they show two men ranked like 40 and 80 play over someone like Dementieva or Azarenka.

Re: ESPN 2, stop showing men's matches

It was very annoying to me at first when I became a dedicated fan because I wanted to see more of the women's matches but I got over it since my faves matches are ALWAYS shown. However when they go away I wonder who they'll show on the women's side obviously the top ranked players but hopefully by that time the top ranking will be in the hands of someone a LARGE number of people will like to watch consistently....

Re: ESPN 2, stop showing men's matches

ESPN has hit a new low today. Not one single womans match shown, except Serena. Terrible.
