Tennis fans should boycott KCBS forever. In addition to showing the women's semifinals of the U.S. Open tennis tournament on a tape-delayed basis when the rest of the country was seeing it live, KCBS flashed a graphic on the screen at 5:01 p.m., when Hana Mandlikova was in the process of breaking Chris Evert Lloyd's serve at 2-3 in the sixth game of the third set, saying that the news would start at 5:18, thereby ruining the drama of the rest of the match. There was no time left between 5:01 and 5:18 for any result other than Mandlikova serving out the set for the upset of the tournament.
A pox on you, KCBS! Do us a favor and let NBC or the cable networks televise tennis and stick to your beloved game shows.
