    Sunday, March 13 -- TV schedule says ESPN2 broadcasts PLO 2:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. EST. and 10 p.m. - 12:00 a.m. EST. It's 10:15 p.m. EST and I haven't seen a single point! Right now I'm supposed to be watching live tennis and I'm watching the D.R. and P.R. playing baseball. Argh~! Anybody know what the deal is?

    Same here! Earlier I got Japan vs US in baseball, now some more Purdue baseball. No tennis :(
    I'm out in the West Coast, near the bay area, not sure what's going on, but I would have really liked to watch some tennis today

    ESPN didn't show any tennis, just world league baseball.

    this ain't a major....

    most of the players are just here picking up a check. look for Agassi and Safin to go out early...

    I've been watching live tennis on the Tennis Channel all day long. I've watched 6 full matches. The first match i watched was the Nadal v Hernych match live, then the Davydenko v Murray match live, then the Agassi v Goldstein match live, then the Federer v Massu match live, then the Safin v Moya match live, and very last the Roddick v Acasuso match live.

    They will be showing the Pac Life Open at 2am on ESPN2.

    I changed over to ESPN from NASCAR when the show listings said tennis would be on but instead it was the USA-Japan baseball game. I was a little disappointed however the baseball game was very entertaining. Too bad the umpires completely botched the tag up play by the Japanese runner at 3rd base in the 8th inning. In any case baseball is the national past time and tennis ain't so it is not too difficult to figure out why ESPN was televising the WBC intstead of the PLO. Now if they wanted to dump some of the grossly over televised college basketball in favor of tennis then that would have been a much better decision.

    The tennis channel is good to have but it has not shown any women's matches. When you consider the current number one and several former number ones are playing, some of their matches should be shown. They are title contenders.

    TTC is at the mercy of whatever feeds are available. Not sure who is broadcasting any of the womens' matches.

    In the Northern Virginia area, Cox Cable ESPN2 is showing Hewitt-Schuettler. Baseball is on ESPN. The tennis has been on since 2pm EST. They have Agassi-Haas at 9pm EST listed o ESPN2 also.

    I also wathced all the matches on The Tennis Channel yesterday. Moya-Safin was a good match to see. So was Daveydenko-Murray. Agassi-Goldstein was an okay match, but the racquet abuse was great to see.

    Well, espn is not yet showing demetieva despite promising to show that match. Instead, horrible Henman is the focus.
