Whenever A Dick was in a tournament, ESPN never failed, with all their might, televise his matches, LITERALLY, from 1st round to wherever he reached. Same cases when the Williams played too. I know if they are in the final that's not avoidable. Otherwise, I REALLY WANDER if ESPN understands that tennis is an International sports with INTERNATIONAL players who have varied talents / skills / other appeals that any avid tennis fans WILL BE interested in viewing them in action. And also, to you all at USTA (if you had influenced this arrangement at ESPN), is this the best you can do to promote tennis ? ALSO, if A Dick stays as one of the top American despite what he rank will be, say for the next 5 - 8 years, is the chance of switching on the TV and seeing him in it more than 75% (as long as he is still in the tournament) in the next 5 - 8 years, like how it has been ? ESPN, did you conduct any research to find out what the characteristics of TENNIS VIEWERS, who, really is the reason why your tennis programs exist, are ?
