Channel 7 coverage (or lack thereof)

Any other Australians getting sick of having to miss one or possibly two (rarely, three) points following EVERY SINGLE CHANGEOVER because Channel 7 just HAS to squeeze in a few more LOUD OBNOXIOUS COMMERCIALS?

Yep. It's also annoying how they're like "We'll now take a look at Rafa's press conference" and it shows the split screen thingo

They brought one of those up of Petkovic during a point in which Federer hit a tweener shot. What awful timing.

They are scumbags who should never have the rights to sport again. Nothing is live, full of ads and they skip points FFS.

Re: Channel 7 coverage (or lack thereof)

The biggest joke was last week when Alicia Molik's match against Petrova was delayed by 1 hour and 20 minutes but Channel 7 pretended it was live. Knowing that the real time was 4:30 pm but the clock at the back of the court said 3:10 pm kind of gave it away

Fox Sports also cover the tennis and the option of switching to different matches is at the viewer's discretion (as long as you have digital and can press the red button). For those who only have Free to Air, well you've got to make the most of what you have ...
