The Aussie bashing at these boards is bordering on ridiculous at the moment!

Please leave us poor Aussie's alone!

So the website went down - OMG that is like the first time ever a website has gone down in the history of the internet. Think just how many people are accessing that site every minute of play - it was bound to happen

So the scheduling sucks - blame the organisers and say "Organisers" instead of "Australians" - generalising is mean!!

So the Aussie players are favoured - NEWSFLASH: the majority of people who attend the Australian Open are (shock horror) AUSTRALIANS and believe it or not we do prefer to watch our apparent "crap" players over other overseas competitors.

The picks at Australian are really unnecessary and you should all be thanking your lucky stars that you don't have to be here and watch Channel 7 who seem to have forgotten that women tennis players can also play night matches!!!

Larry Scott is a moron.

It's funny how the only time people respond to me on these boards is when I shit stir.....I hate having to be an a*sehole to get any attention!

When I just post in regular tennis conversation threads I get ignored....

Larry Scott is a moron.

How is that channel 7's fault that women haven't been scheduled on night matches as much? :P


I've actually been impressed with channel 7's coverage, they're showing most of the aussies, but a real wide range of matches too

You don't think Channel 7 have a hand in the scheduling each day.

I have been privy to how it works and the ITF, WTA, ATP Paul Mac and a channel 7 rep meet mid afternoon each day and work out the schedule - seems the WTA isn't doing a great job.

Channel Seven's coverage does favour the mens draw - but I suppose they are just playing the numbers

yea... thx for your 2 point negative rep... and then you wonder why ppl don't pay any positive attention to you...
also, it's a little crazy to post here just to get attention. most people on here want to read what other people think/experience/know about tennis... it's a discussion board.

and also, i can clearly see a lot of united states bashing going on pretty regularly on these boards, but i don't start a thread to whine... so what there are 3 or so threads that say something negative about australia... that's nothing.

Maybe that is because there's not many aussie women left in the draw, cause as you know, almost every night match thus far (if not all, I'll have to check) has involved an Australian, and Molik is the only Australian left.

Like I said - shit stirring is the only way to get Yanks to pull their heads out of their a*re!
