Yes, the post is repetitious but on the odd chance that someone at ESPN skims the TW board, let me reiterate that much of the flavor of this great tournament is being eviscerated by the largely all US player perch of ESPN coverage. It is like taking a gourmet meal at a French restaurant and tossing away all but the appetizer. By the time we get to the 4th round we have been deprived of the entre and vegetables and sauces and wine. We are left with some cheesecake and a special order of supersized fries. Expecially on the terre battue U.S. players are not the center of the universe. And barring an act of God, the Williamses will be around for your 4th round and beyond. The Agassi and Capriati matches were entertaining but were a lucky development. I hope that ESPN understands that Santoro- Clement was the showcase, not Venus Tanasugarn; in fact, ESPN hoped Affaire Santoro match would conclude in 15 minutes so they could get to the irrrelevant Venus hitting session. And so it goes, Slam after Slam. If we get a run of significant matches it will thanks to chance alone.
