    who cares, all i want to see is rod Dick and agassi blowouts. nothing else in tennis interests me more than the rebroadcasts of the rod Dick and Agassi. for me, once they lose I won't watch anyways unless they pre-empt the rest of the tournament to show old rod Dick routs.
    espn can do better though. when rebroadcasting roddick, who really wants to see the rallies. all i care about are the aces and P-smack's worship and awe at each and every one. just package the aces, keep the P-smack voice overs like "HEL-lo" and "this guy is unbeLIEvable!!!" and play the new Korn/backstreet boys song in the background

    now that's what today's tennis fans are DEMANDING!! just ask ESPN's market research

    Even though in general, a little more diversity would be nice, they can saddle me with a matchup like Agassi/Coria every day, thanks.

    coria, who the hell is he?? if he isn't american, i don't want to see him on MY television
    hopefully espn is working on the technology to blot out the live images of non-American players during matches and replace them with splices of johnny mac or some other suitable player
    that's a sure way to boost ratings

    Dude,
    why are you so angry? I could understand being pissed during Wimbledon last year, but Espn has showed live tennis during all of their broadcasts this week. There are 4 quarterfinal matches left & they will all be shown live.
    12: Henin vs an ugly russian chic
    2:Federer vs. Chela
    7:Coria vs. Agassi

    you are wrong Kevin Patrick. the other night after agassi's match with Hrbaty, ESPN was showing the taped roddick/safing match instead of showing live Taylor Dent match. Once again, ESPN America is proving to have no clue what the real tennis fan wants to watch.

    What will ESPN do when Agassi retires?

    prostaff85,
    You can't blame them if the live match ends early. They are only alotted a 2 hr slot. The Agassi Hrbaty match ended with what 30 minutes left in the coverage? By the time Dent got on court & warmed up they could have shown 2 or 3 games at the most. Plus some of us work during the day & would like to see some of Safin-Roddick.
