We rarely get any coverage on Fox, so good luck on Free to Air . . . .

I wish they would show more tournies and perhaps with Alicia and Sam doing so well they might start to show you some more tennis on tv.

GO THE AUSSIE GIRLS

Hopefully free-to-air will at least show the grand slams that's if they don't already show them...

Yeah ch 7 usually shows all 4, aus open gets the best coverage, but the other ones, well this is what happened last year, are on really late at night, always or usually delayed. BUt maybe they will show some of Molik's and Lleytons matches earlier, or have better coverage if htey do really well.?

aus free to air has really really shit coverage

The French open last year, only had a really crappy 25 minute "highlight" show on the ABC.
That was really pathetic

Will we get any free-to-air RG coverage?

I checked the ABC site and didn't even see the Highlights in the TV guide.

In NZ they even televised some matches from at least one of the $10k womens satellites. AUS free 2 air TV is shit! I had fox installed just before the AUS Open for this reason. I don't think I saw anything of the FO last year except brief highlights (usually mens of course) on the news.

So we don't even get that 25 minute show anymore - how depressing.
I thought the Oz open got huge ratings this year, so why is the coverage of the French getting progressively worse?
No French Open, no Premier League - Australia free to air sports coverage sucks!

I'm annoyed that Channel 9 won't be showing the daily highlights for Wimby.

Did they show it last year?

I relied on the highlights as they had an even number of men's and women's matches, as opposed to the night broadcast when we'd only ever get the Aussie men.

I think the highlights show was last on a few years back, not last year from memory.

There won't be many Aussie men left for long this year!
I just hope they don't show Henman early on, I remember they wasted several hours last year with his first round match.

Not only did Henman take half the coverage he got out of jail, so we can all enjoy his next match.

Tonite will probably be Scud,Federer then Hewitt with some Womens on at 3am again. At least the Serena/Haynes match was worth staying up till 5am for!
