    I have not seen any ads for tennis rackets or other equipment while watching the French Open. You would think this is an ideal spot for racket manufacturers. Very few sponsors this year on the ESPN coverage.
    Also thought the announcing was terrible for the Women’s final yesterday. They should call the match; it is not a social hour. Never gave Myskina the credit she deserves for setting up the points. All I heard was how bad Dementieva serve is, well she beat Venus and Lindsay to get into the final.
    NBC is coming across like without an American, why broadcast the match!

    There'd better be some good Americans soon, or ESPN will stop broadcasting tennis. I never thought I'd say this, but "Shape up, Andy. "
