I saw that 17 of the 18 highest rated TV programs in 2022 were NFL games. The 18th was the presidential state of the union address that nobody watches but is on every channel. I'm sure the Cowboys vs. Bucs will be one the top rated shows in 2023. ESPN pays billions in TV rights so no doubt they are going to bump AO for football tonight.
The hurtful part is they devote The Deuce to the Manning Brothers commentary on the same game aired on ESPN.

He desperately needs a new coach if these injury set-backs are permanent and is no longer capable of redlining like that. He needs a complete overhaul in his game and get built back from the ground up.
When he does stand on the baseline he's spraying errors left and right. He needs a big change if he wants to get back.

He really needs to learn how to hit a neutral position slice when the ball is too close to accurately rip a backhand. He only hits slices when he's doing this defensive fadeaways off one foot.

Travesty day at ESPN. how do i watch this ? ESPN and ESPN2 NOT carrying this. if you don't have ESPN plus and pay for it, you don't see aussie open all night til NFL is over with like Midnight ??:mad:
I ended up watching this on the ESPN+ app on my iPad for the grand total of $9.99 for the whole month, easy cancel in iOS settings. Worth it, if they indeed carry many/all matches. On the one hand: annoying to pay for yet another thing, but on the other hand, $10 for the entire AO is fine by me.

I remember doing this once, and then having to subscribe to Sling because there were some matches that were blocked on ESPN+ if you didn't have a qualifying cable provider. Hopefully that's different now.

Thiem is going through 2015-16 phase of Rafa’s career, Rafa made adjustments to his game from 2017 and Thiem needs to do that as well if he wants to become a top player again.
Ps- Not saying Thiem is on the level of Rafa but I see similarities in that 2015-16 phase of Rafa and age is also same

ESPN+ advertised having all of the matches through the final, so it'll be quite disappointing if that isn't the case for some reason.
