NBC blows. Now they are showing tape delayed Sharapova and Nadal instead of live 5th set Patience v. Djokovic. Oh, and it is all presented in glorious NON hdtv.

i dont know about HD but the final is the only thing NBC will ever show live....9am ET/6am PT

even the semis are taped...

at least they do a slightly better job at wimbledon....but overall tennis coverage is not up to par with any network

Of course they will only show the final until it is time to switch over to the Celebrity Bullriding Pre-Competiton Analysis show.

One of my favorites is the "9 am in all time zones" bull that the pull at Wimbledon. So, I have to watch with an hour delay because of the stupid Today show? Lame. The only way to change this is to use a live internet stream and just not watch NBC coverage at all so the ratings plummet. Then maybe TTC or ESPN will pick up the rights.

nbc is the regular channel, msnbc is their cable/news arm. but the match will be on nbc proper. live, as others have said, which will give them a lot less chance to screw it up.

is the final on nbc going to be in hd?It should be. I get a seperate channel that carries NBC in HD. I don't know how your channels are set up.

Nbc was broadcasting the tennis today in 4:3 mode on their hd signal. Looks like they are just taping the Tennis channel feeds instead of using the espn2 hd feeds..

Nbc blows.. they even show Hockey which has almost as low viewership as tennis in HD..
