HOW'S YOUR TV coverage?

IT was really good today. Damn good.

Saw the entire LD vs PIN , VENUS, JEN matches.

Saw the last set of PATTY vs Wynne,
AI vs ANGIE, DANIELA vs ZULUAGA, and
ANNA vs HENRIETA.


Thank you Channel 22 in SIngapore!!

Cool coverage

Ch 7 always gets a bit over excited with all the matches on they pretty much jump all over the place, so it can be a bit frustrating sometimes, but aside from that, I think there coverage is great

We have the Channel 7 Australia live "world"
feed with Fred Stolle, and company doing the
honours. Fred's really good; he actually can
comment on a female top 16'er with out sounding
patronizing, condescending nor dumb. He's one
of the few that actually know the strenght's and
weakness's in the current field of the women's game.

WISH I were in Singapore, because ESPN's coverage in the US sucks. Only Agassi's match was shown here. Unfortunately, ESPN usually airs the men's matches 80-90% of the time LIVE. The women's matches are usually taped and not shown in its entirety. ESPN, in the US, is the WORST!!!

Well...I know where your coming from. I'm an American-
and i use to shed tears back in the states watching
ESPN, USA network, TBS, and NBC's tennis coverage.
Hated the tv promo's for shows, local station ads,
national broadcast ads... etc..

We used to get Star Sports coverage for the Aussie Open...
But this year there is none...
We have a local channel showing the Aussie Open instead...
Which really sucks... we used to get it LIVE...
Right now... they are still showing the Agassi match..
I don't know why... maybe it got to do with money!!!

Ours was poopants.. First match that Eurosport showed was... Paradorn Srichiphan's. Now I don't have anything against the guy, but I would rather have watched the Henin match. At least with Sky we had an interactive service where we could choose which match to watch..
