Quick, name a sport, any sport.
Yup, ESPN does whatever it takes — spends a ton of money, too — to wreck tennis, too.
What ESPN is again doing to the Australian Open is right out of the ESPN, E for Excess, manual that gives instructions on how to drown every event it touches.
To think that here in the States one can sit down to enjoy a morning of live tennis being played in a major simply is too much to ask of ESPN.
First, like “Monday Night Football,” every televised match must undergo an on-site panel preview spoken by at least four of ESPN’s rotating experts. Thus, before the match has even begun, it has been beaten to death.
