    In addition to cutting the pilot pen from its' coverage tonight, espn has decided to show little league instead of tennis now too.

    That is because the coverage was supposed to begin today at 2pm.

    Unfortunately, as much as we like tennis, the ratings on the Little League Championships are probably 4 times what they are for tennis.

    Yes, they announced that tonight's taped match will be Donald Young vs. Davydenko. Hmmmm....whom should I bet on? ;)

    I was excited to see tennis until I saw the match with Huntchova and Aganes. I was glad the young girl won but it was one of the most boring matches. The tempo was slow and heavy. I guess it might have to do with the weather. Here on the east coast it has been gloomy/rainy and rather cool

    U R not joking...took me 30 long seconds to decide it was not worth my time. If WTA tanked I would not even notice it was gone (would not have said this in the 80-90's).

    It was supposed to be on at 10:30 as well, and so far there is nothing. It isn't the first time that ESPN has postponed or cancelled tennis coverage without notice.

    Looks like I've got to eat my words, tennis coverage has just begun on ESPN. Thanks, ESPN. Please forgive me ;)
