Davis Cup on TV.
« on: February 27, 2005, 03:37:55 PM »
I looked at the ESPN listings in the newspaper  for the Davis Cup and this is what I found.  It wil be live this Friday at noon PST on ESPN2.  It is listed for three hours with Billiards to follow.  After that is is a two hour College Gameday which gives all the scores of college baskeball tournaments.  It looks like we will only get to see the first match but if that match goes five sets ESPN2 could cancel the billiards and shorten the College Gameday.  It is played outdoors in California so you hope for no rain.  It it were in Flroida coverage could start three hours earlier since ESPN2 has three hours of billiars before Davis Cup as well and we would get both matches.   It would be nice if ESPN2 were to let the tennis channel coverage the second match if they can't do it but if the first match were very short with a retirement ESPN2 might give us the second match live. Even without a retirement  if each set were a half hour ESPN2 might give us part of the second match.  On Saturday ESPN2 will not show it until 7:00 PM PST for two hour so it will probably be on tape because they want to show it after ten solid hours of college basketball are over.  It also helps if there are rain delays because you will most likely get to see it if it ever gets played that day.  Then if no tennis gets played on Saturday ESPN2 could give us the second match of Friday.
