Many here have pointed out over the years, and in recent weeks, what a travesty it is that Tim Henman is ignored by cable programmers who care only for the mainstream "blockbuster" matches that are usually a waste of time but make good headline news. My biggest problem lies with Patrick McEnroe et. al. as they cruise thru the French and simply refuse to acknowledge Henman's accomplishments. When they do mention Tim, they are smirking. The only answer I can come up with is that the announcers have been told to stay focused on what ESPN considers to be headline news and to ignore Henman's run. Why else would otherwise-intelligent Patrick McEnroe be so hush-hush about this great story? If it's true that the announcers are being kept in line by the network, well, I'm embarrassed for them, they should know better, and they're supposed to be journalists, after all. Then again, I guess it takes a good chunk of change to buy the suits Patrick McEnroe is wearing, and ESPN is his Sugar Daddy, so maybe it's all very clear cut. Regardless, the facts will stand for all time: Henman has made a tremendous run in the French, and if we try hard enough, we'll be able to find DVD recordings. ESPN can kiss my grits in the meanwhile.
