I don`t have complaints about the coverage at Roland Garros since i have the French Open Mix on DirecTV. However i do like to see them show more doubles matches, although they did show Hantuyama`s match today, which is a good start.

I echo sentiments of the TSN coverage being horrible. I've been watching the coverage on my DVR and it all seems disjointed. Hopefully the coverage gets better as they move into week 2

I think the big problem is the time difference, which never bothered me when we had US coverage. You join coverage live, and show the "early" matches later in the afternoon when play's done. OR, there's enough LIVE tennis so you don't have to.

Now, they're determined to show us the very beginning of play, THREE hours after it started! So we're behind all day. That might be "ok" for casual fans who don't check scores online...but for people like us, its horrible.

After reading this thread I feel like my own gripe is small, but I'm really annoyed by the way ESPN2 HD shrinks the picture to fit in that stupid scoreboard. TTC is owning them in picture quality.

I agree with Isha. I saw Klara-Serena on Youtube. I could see the ball in the far court when the scoreboard wasnt there. When it was I couldn't.

What's with the original scoreboards? I don't get why networks don't just use the scoreboards the tournament gives them

Why does TSN get an aussie feed? I've never seen/heard commentators more boring than the ones we get.

Thank god for Hélène and Yvon.

TSN just hit a new low We're getting the National Spelling Bee Championships.
I hope RDS will join live at 2, but I don't think so

ESPN is showing venus' match now instead of live coverage!

If you aren't going to allow TTC live stream matches during your coverage, SHOW LIVE TENNIS!!

Agreed! It's the worst Scoreboard too!
I'm sure people who don't follow tennis very well get confused by it.

Re: BBC/Eurosport/Sky Sports/ESPN/TTC- Etc - Coverage, Moan Thread !!

I don't really object to the BBC showing endless Murray because it's swings and roundabouts. If we didnt have a top ten player, you can just about guarantee that the appetite and audience for tennis would be around nil, and nothing would be broadcast at all until finals weekend, like it used to be.

My biggest gripe at the moment is 'Game, Set and Mats'. I find myself strangely glued to it everyday, incredulous at the poor quality of the production, wooden presenting and supposedly "unique insights" of the snaggle-toothed former champion - sample quote: "Nadal and Federer, that's a great rivalry". Thanks for that, we'd never have noticed. But perhaps they have high viewing figures, as thousands of masochists like me tune in to see exactly how embarrassed they can be for other people. Poor Anabel Croft tries to hold it together but she's not the most skilled presenter, and doesn't seem to have any help from the production team. I'm sure the camera guy was drunk(er than usual) last night, fliming from over her shoulder as she talked to Mats...
