Arrow Tennis Show Idea: Thoughts

We have been thinking about doing a bit of an online tennis show for some time now, but Im trying to gauge if anyone would actually watch it...

The show would be basically some people chatting on skype, live video, and running through the latest results, news and whats happening in the game.

We could get some top players on the show and also famous faces.. What does everyone think?

Re: Tennis Show Idea: Thoughts

I think some insight into what the locker room is like would be cool. It's the only part we never really get to see on a regular basis. Also, maybe following different players on like a video-blog segment would be pretty cool.

Sounds interesting, what platform do you plan to use. You might be considering P2PTV in one form or another.

Re: Tennis Show Idea: Thoughts

First of all.. what is P2PTV I couldnt find anything about it... Guessing its software and not a platform.

Aretha Franklin can be done

Anyway, how're you guys supposed to get the top players? No offense but they're extremely busy people

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Tennis Show Idea: Thoughts

It is better to start off small and then hopefully get some top players over time.

Re: Tennis Show Idea: Thoughts

I think the best idea would actually be NOT to be aiming for top players, but actually make a show that covers ITF events and journeywomen that have been on the tour for years. They are the ones that deserve the media attention as, as it has been mentionned before, the top players are already very busy and seen in the media.

This way, you could also easily find posters from here who are attention big ITFs or smaller events, and players there are actually much more inclined to participate to such things!

Re: Tennis Show Idea: Thoughts

Thing is they get a whiff of success and run like hell from here, as if its gonna get them blackballed from any future WC's (like our "illustrious" Jamie On Court, aka Jamie Hampton). Even Kimiko left in preparation for her comeback, she might have just wanted to introduce her name to fans here too young to remember her. Maybe retired players would be more likely to stick around (like CD's lovely pal Melanie MAH-wah, from the Kuh-BECK City area).

Re: Tennis Show Idea: Thoughts

Yeh.. I think it would be good to have a consistent line up of a few people and then have a guest or two every week. Younger players and older players are going to be more inclined to join the lineup.

It would also be great to get more people to go to the tournaments.. take photos and send them to our site.. we are always looking to add as much content as possible.
