AUS Tennis Coverage (2)

I'm lazy to find the one from last week Anyway, I just saw Optus TV guide and it say Fox Sports will have US Open coverage from 1am for live! I thought they only have night sessions? At least we have live coverage on Fox Sports while Nine don't show up!

what about Free to Air TV?

It's like everyone else gets coverage of tennis except people living in Australia with only free to air tv. We didn't get ANY French Open coverage at all, only the Aussie's at Wimbledon, The Medibank International, Gold Coast Final, and the Australian Open. (which is all mainly Lleyton Hewitt or Mark Poo) That's the only tennis we get here...it's ridiculous!! I complained to ABC about there being no French Open coverage

And anyway even if we do get coverage it will be on during the middle of the night

I'm certainly not staying up until 1am. I wake up at 5:30am to go to work, so at least I'll get to watch some tennis for the hour or so before I leave.

Having said that, I can't believe Channel 9 haven't come to the party this year.

Channel 9 is showing from the QF's onwards.

"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."
