    Impossible to estimate the duration of a tennis match...

    If they have given 3 hrs between both matches , we would be fine.
    impossible ? i dont think so. They are matches with tie breaks.

    The video/sound quality of the CBS match is horrible.

    It's like tennis on public access television.

    If the Fed/Blake match was delayed, it might interfere with Big Brother. And sadly I think more people watch Big Brother than they do tennis...:-(

    I was annoyed by this as well. It looked like the used disposable picture cameras or something to broadcast this... colors were all washed out and everything was fuzzy. What the heck? ESPN2 had a perfect feed all week.

    What are you talking about? If the TV network wishes to show both matches live, it has no choice.

    Agree. I tried HD and it looked as if they were shooting the cameras at a regular TV. You could hardly see the ball at times. Awful picture quality!
