Becuase they are desperate to show a match where a Williams sister loses. Notice that Venus' 1997 USO semifinal match against Irinia Sprulea (sorry if the spelling is incorrect) isn't on ESPN Classic. Why? Because Venus won.Callie20 said:That was a horrible inconsistent match, why would they make that match an instant classic?
So have I (last year, when there was that Sunday rain delay that lasted most of the day), but never on ESPN Classic.jenglisbe said:lizchris - I have seen the Williams/Spirlea match plenty of times during U.S. Open rain delays and the like. It's definitely viewed as a "classic" and is still shown by network television.
