    Although I could care less for tennis, it was showing on the NBC affiliate out of Tidewater, VA. Luckily we get media from 2 seperate markets for people like one of my neighbors who is a tennis freak. Hope lots of money was raised to save lives of several (really all) children.

    Such hateful words! Oh, that’s right. In tennis, love means nothing.

    Thank goodness I was able to watch online. Friends and family coming to watch with me.Why not just leave tennis on the tennis channel? Shame on witn.

    While I understand the importance of raising money for a good cause the mens French Open final only happens at a certain time once a year. I attempted to watch some of the match online but it's hard to follow on my computer. I won't say I'll never watch WITN again but I'm irritated enough that it will be a while. Federer/Nadal match up at any final will always prove eventful, you showed the women's final but couldn't follow through with the men's?? Why show any at all?!

    I applaud you for raising money for sick children, but doing so during the Finals of the French Open, just like last year, if a bad marketing decision. Do you not understand how big tennis is in this veiwing area? You have lost a lot of viewers. We though the outcry from last year would have changed your timing. Slow learners, evidently.

    wow. i just assumed the guide was wrong last night and that they were going to actually show the match. i've always been a WITN guy, but no more. i guess i'll have to go with WNCT from now on. this is absolutely unbelievable. WITN i hate you.

    Once again you all have proved to be the absolute worst of the local network affiliates. This is Nadal/Federeor, an all time match. Do you think CBS would show something if it was woods /michelson in the Masters. Do you think Fox would show the childrens miracle network over the Super Bowl. Who is making these decisions. They should be fired. You know years in advance when the french Open final is. Why not schedule this telethon for any other Sunday morning when there is nothing on TV to compete. Complete ignorance.

    Came here from Raleigh for the weekend. Very disappointed that I cannot see the French Open. Will not come back to the area this time next year. The telethon is an important cause, but this was a very poor decision on someone's part and hurts the telethon.

    Why not show the telethon during primetime tonight when people will actually be viewing. Americas got talent must be too important. WITN sucks at everything.
