    Why wasn’t Marie’s first round not televised on any stations carrying French Open; Serena was dominant on the coverage!

  2. D. Wilkinson says:

    I think its pretty crappy that ESPN is not televising the latter in the day matches and that the Tennis channel is. There are a lot of us who can not get the Tennis channel.
