    Although it was cut off midway through the third, I thought it was some of the best tennis I'd seen of the whole tournament.

    Wish they'd show more dubs on TV.

    Yeah some of the best dubs I've seen in awhile. It's a shame they're not shown more often due the lack of "star" power pro dubs.

    It's too bad doubles is always on the back burner. (Court?) For those who complain about the repetitive boredom of men's power singles matches, watching a few good doubles matches which proceed at rapid pace could get even the most anti-tennis person interested. It was one of the most exciting and fun matches I watched these last 2 weeks, and fortunately they showed the whole thing . (tsn Canada ESPN) I really am feeling for ESPN watchers in the USA.

    Santoro/Llodra won...will play Malisse/O Rochus in the final (this surprised me) which I don't think ESPN will show, it but maybe some French sports network will pick up. That would be fun to watch.

    Yeah, that was some great doubles.

    Bryan bros were playing pretty well, they could have gotton that last set.

    ESPN did show the whole thing on the west coast. Bryans just screwed up the third set , lost a break and match.

    McEnroe said "We have 3 hours of live tennis today, stay with us....." I got excited and thought they were going to show mens dubs finals. Not suprisingly, they show the replay of the coria/henman match. :roll:

    Is it hard for NBC (or any major network) to appreciate men's doubles ? When was the last time they show a gran slam men's doubles championship ? The major networks dont realize that fans would like to watch the quick exchanges at the net.

    Showing mens doubles would help club players play doubles at the highest level since majority of us play doubles....

    What a shame, one of the worst telecast in recent years !
