LIP SERVICE: SI.com's Bruce Jenkins wrote the ATP Monte Carlo Rolex Masters is "one of the most prestigious events on the men's tour," and Sunday's final, which aired on ESPN3, "was nothing short of a dream" with Rafael Nadal playing Novak Djokovic. But during ESPN's "entire prime-time 'SportsCenter' -- 90 minutes' worth," there was "nothing" about the event. Jenkins: "Nary a clip, nor even the score. As the anchors signed off, with time only for a few short comments in passing, one of them mentioned that Djokovic had ended Nadal's eight-year command of the tournament" (SI.com, 4/23).
