Tell me what I say, hunh? $2K ain't spit. It's a defiant INSULT, telling the public, "We won't do anything to the Yankee corporate housepet--and you can't make us. Our little psycho can behave any way she likes."
Watch out for USTA retaliation against Asderaki.
But NOW, wanna hear weird? At 16:00 EDT, with no warning, CBS Network abruptly ditched coverage of the men's final. What I'm seeing here is Ellen Degeneris. Unless this is regional cable system hanky-panky, it would appear our media wants to get away from this whole USO cluster-yank ASAP.
update: Apparently CBS went to the USO about 19:00 EDT. Bizarre.
WEDNESDAY MORNING, 09:00 am EDT, after everyone is at work, Tennis Channel in the States FINALLY breaks down & STARTS to replay Sam def Serena Final.
They did not cut/suppress any more than ESPN2. The rescheduling tells it all: only other showing this week will be at midnight EDT. This was all about showing Serena's embarrassment as little as possible & to as few viewers as they could manage.
IOW, Sam gets cheated of US credit & exposure per a futile Yankee attempt at damage control.
THURSDAY: Again they seem to have heard us (and no doubt others). Digital cable guide now shows TTC airing the women's final in primetime tonight at 19:00 EDT. lol!
19:00: Nah--they frackin' did it again, running the Women's Doubles they'd previously scheduled. They ain't gonna show Sam beat Serena in primetime. No way. Don't that say it all? Look at this:
Tell me that woman is in her right mind?
