    Has anyone else noticed how freaking annoying that scoreboard is that Espn used. It takes up the whole left side of the court. So annoying..............

    I actually like it better than the one that took up the whole bottom of the court, whereas this one does not even come close to taking up the space the last one did

    Yeah, but this new one in the upper left corner stays on during the points which blocks the view of the ball many times!!! Get rid of it!!! It's annoying!!! :x

    Equal as annoying is the commentary with the constant information at the bottom of the screen. How many times do I need to see a basketball game results from last night.

    USA networks did a much better job than ESPN. The tennis majors are trashed, thanks to ESPN, if any rain delays we will be back watching the Williams sister’s rerun matches.

    I agree with everyone that ESPN has not done a good job at covering the French Open. In addition, the scoreboard they are using is quite annoying. However, I am glad they picked up the French, because it seems like no other network would have, or would have had so many hours of coverage. Just my 2 cents.

    My beef regarding the scoreboard is that is impossible to know who is ahead at a quick glance from the kitchen because the server's score is not given first. True tennis fans are looking for the server's score on the left, and the reciever's on the right. But that is not happening. I have to walk up to the TV and see who's name is next to the score to know who is ahead. Very annoying.

    i didn't really mind the scoreboard, it dissapears every so often, and it doesn't block that much.
