Is there an athlete more dominant than Roger Federer? Don’t say Tiger Woods or Steve Nash. Not even that Japanese hot dog eating guy could touch the Swiss tennis master. He got rid of Andy Roddick like he was Mandy Moore. I’m also a semi-fan of Maria Sharapova, but she’s about to get waxed by Serena "I Am Way Too Out of Shape to be Winning" Williams.
Why wouldn’t ESPN film the Australian Open in High Definition? There are only four Grand Slam events a year, and the other three finals all end up on network TV (NBC I believe). If I was running ESPN’s tennis division, I would do everything I could to turn our broadcast into the broadcast to end all broadcasts. I would try and find some ultra-HD way of showing the tournament. But I’m not in charge of ESPN.
