I'm talking about the TV coverage. The streams are what are being shown on Direct TV and Dish Network, which is what I was talking about. The TTC network coverage is very fragmented, IMHO.

Re: Coverage of FO is disgusting!

I think TTC is doing a great job, they always do at the slams and I am glad they have all 4 slams now. Its very enjoyable to watch and they show a lot of tennis.

SERENA 21 GRAND SLAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Coverage of FO is disgusting!

Try to get Tennis Channel or Direct TV coverage. You can watch couple matches live at the same time, and later they repeat most important ones!

Re: Coverage of FO is disgusting!

Disgusting is the right word. German ES had the cordiality to show us one full set of Nadia vs. Pova and then they switched to cycling.
And now I can't even see Venus losing

Plus we get uninterrupted coverage from first ball until the the last point. That doesn't even happen with the U.S. Open where there often isn't coverage from 5pm to 7pm.

The only thing I'm dissapointed about is no court choice without direct tv
I totally agree. I walked home from work to see the last set of Ouanna v. Safin and Lucie v. Venus, and I had two channels to choose from. In the past TTC would aburtly end at noon and ESPN2 would show whom ever they wanted often on tape delay , but this year TTC has been covering whatever matches are on court before noon, and surprisingly, ESPN2 has showed matched not on tape delay and also the matches that everyone wanted to see.

You could get RDS if you wanted in Ontario: just an extra $7 for a few French channels and you would be all set.

(RDS is a must channel as a Habs fan!)

I guess the BBC is being slightly better this year in showing some different matches, but they always seem to find a way to televise Murray At least they shew the final set of Simon cruising past Kendrick

They showed that instead of Ana RG was good last year when Murray lost early, it seems to free up the rest of the BBC schedule.
