Another screw-up in the TV coverage

As we all know, ESPN2 has that continuous scores ticker scrolling across the bottom of the screen. Well, during tonight's (even more) delayed coverage of Jen/Justine, guess what they did? In the middle of the very first game, the ticker got to "tennis". Then, when it said "Bank of America WTA...." etc., I figured it would give the result of the first match. But no, the first thing to scroll across after that was "Henin-Hardenne def. Capriati in 2 sets". Way to keep your viewers tuned in!

Morons.

although it will probably be eurosports coverage, so that's good. what bugs me the most is that i have espn on cable, but they are showing things like nascar replays and fishing. it is really annoying
