BTW, peep the Hewitt pic of dunny doing his classic "come on" gesture.
ESPN2 has stepped up their tennis coverage tremendously.
IIRC, it was just 3 years ago when ESPN was derided/ethered by Jon Wertheim as "Eternally Shafting Players Non-American". They would stay showing rerun blowouts of the Williams sisters & Roddick, while a live epic 5-set match was going on bt non-Americans such as M Safin v F Gonzalez or some such. The only exception was the Non-American they vag-rided even more than the few American stars, Maria Sharapova.
Sharapova is injured this year, so we don't have to bare her-shrieking unsportsmanlike anorexic ass this year preempting more interesting matches.
But ESPN2 aka "the deuce" (no scatalogical jic) is rolling mad hours of live coverage.
Well done ESPN.
Here's the ESPN2 sched (source tennis.com):
