Aussies: complain about 7's coverage!!

Again this year im disgusted at 7's coverage of the Medibank Sydney tournament. They are so selfish they try and cover the Sydney tournament and a crumby Mens Exhibition in Melbourne. To do this we miss heaps of excellent womens matches, thus we missed 3 out of the 4 womens quarters today and goodness knows what we will see tomorrow if they will show that stupid exhibition and if we miss the womens semis ill send a nuclear bomb to seven

Im sure its against this countrys media laws that a network can hoarde sporting coverage at the expense of other networks which seven is doing, if they cant cover both give it to another network OR put it on their new HD channel.

Aussies if you think the same ring them and complain!

What do you expect from Channel 7 this time around? I get used to it now and it doesn't bother me at all.

Re: Aussies: complain about 7's coverage!!

I was disappointed they showed and continued to show Roddicks match, but it didn't shock me. Usually during this time of the year they only show show womens matches at the Hopman Cup, Gold Coast final and the first day of Medibank when Kooyong hasn't started, and the final.

But they are showing Vaidisova and Jankovic's match at 10.30

Re: Aussies: complain about 7's coverage!!

unfortuantlely, mens matches are more popular than womens. most fans would much rather see roddick play than a henin or ivanovic.

unfortuantely, thats jsut the way it is... theyre giving the people what they want...

dellacqua • dokic • groth • molik • stosur
holland • mirkovic • moore • rogowska • wejnert
clijsters • hantuchova • jankovic • sharapova • venus

Re: Aussies: complain about 7's coverage!!

I don't understand why Foxtel doesn't cover anything from the Summer of tennis apart from the hopman cup and the open, you would think they would show one of the Australian WTA or ATP events.

Re: Aussies: complain about 7's coverage!!

they better show th sf between henin and ivanovic

i mean why not show a REAL tournament over some stupid exhibition even that means nothing

I really hope they show it, i mean they LOOVE Ivanovic so hopefully it will get shown

i think they should show the first match at kooyong while the doubles is being played then show the sf

Re: Aussies: complain about 7's coverage!!

I'm cool with the coverage.

With all due respect to the medibank event, there are no matches there that would be better that Baghdatis/Davydenko, which was on today. Or even Roddick/Ljubicic

Well for starters my interest in mens tennis is only like 30% compared to womens, tho i do like mens tennis more if i see it live for some reason! The thing is too that the mens is exhibition and how is it any better, youve got all bar 3-4 of the top 20 women in the world playing Sydney. Also now 7 has their new HD channel they could play one tournament on each channel but instead their playing stupid crap re runs of shitty shows. The ABC took the hopman cup when 7 wouldnt show it, let 7 show their crappy mens exhibition and let ABC or another network show the Sydney tournament in full.

Re: Aussies: complain about 7's coverage!!

Yeah, the medibank has most of the top women, but they're not playing each other yet. I'd say Justine was taking her match less seriously than the guys in Kooyong today. Kuznetsova and Srebotnik was probably the best match during the day on paper, and neither of them are massively well known.

If they don't show Justine and Ana, then I'll start complaining.

Glad I haven't been home to watch it. I just wish they would cover the night sessions live so I have something to watch when I get home from work, they should put them on Foxtel.

All matches on T.V today where absolutely boring!
Davydenko and Bahgdatis were both playing average, the match lasted for like half the coverage and there were no exciting rallies the whole match.

Ljubicic wasn't even trying, just moping around the court while all Roddick did was serve un-returnable serves, lucky this match finished quickly.

Chris Guccione was even more boring with his serving, Lleyton couldn't get anyway returns in and it was sad watching his hopes being destroyed by somebody who can't even have a ground stroke ralley.

They could have shown repeats from last year, ANYTHING would have been more entertaining then todays matches!
