The only good part about it is that I don't have to listen to Cliff's annoying ass anymore. :lol:

Brad is an ogre who can't pronounce Kuznetsova. Can't believe they cut off the match. B-Ball sucks.

They would never leave basketball for tennis...we always have to wait for the end of overtime to see tennis. Grr!

I'm not a fan of Hingis, but I'm pretty sure that Hingis would draw more fans to ESPN than women's college basketball :rolleyes:

I don't like it anymore than any of you, but ESPN is contractually obligated to cover the NCAA women's tournament.

BTW, Hingis just lost 7-6, (11-9 tiebtreak in the final set).

Yes, but they could have waited for the match to be over, then show the basketball game from the beginning.

I understand because it is an important women's basketball game. But they should have played the rest of the tennis match on ESPN instead of basketball highlights (or whatever) which can be shown later on tape.

Its typical of ESPN sports coverage and their incompetence to realize that people are more compelled to watch a WTA professional tennis match going into a third set tie-breaker, rather than watch a womens college basketball game where one team has a 20 point lead.

I'm not shocked, they employ grand slam singles winless commentators that can't even pronounce the names of the players their commentating.

Dumb Asses :rolleyes:

It's not the Williams sisters, Roddick or Agassi playing so why should ESPN show a match featuring a Swiss and a Russian when Women's basketball is on?

They should give up rights to show matches that go into overtime on the tennis channel. The best part of the match not even shown :fiery:
