I can't believe NBC can't even put this in HD.

i know it is a shame the superbowl of tennis is not in hd, what a shame. i have yet to see tennis in hd, maybe they will show us open in hd, i guess tennis in hd is not a huge priority.

I am watching right now and I imagine the reason is that (I believe) other TV networks use the BBC feed - no HD in England yet!

That could be the case. Only way to know is if the US Open, as mentioned before will show in HD

Some of the events have contracted with private companies to provide the feed. This way the association can sell the feed to many outlets over the world. We won't see HD until the private companies have the equipment.

While no HD is broadcast in Europe yet (and only 2 sat channels) they've had widescreen EDTV for a dozen years... And the BBC has been producing content in HD for a couple years now, for sales to the US as well as for downconversion for other markets.
