Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

It used to be alright but no one even wants to play it any more. It's such a joke

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

Agreed.

Gosh, 7 are so desperate to show an Aussie that they're replaying Sam's loss to Zheng right now WHO THE FUCK WANTS TO SEE THAT AGAIN!

This Sydney tournament has become so weak. Such a shame. Brisbane has really stolen its thunder. They don't even have a night session now (but rather, a 'twilight' session) as there are practically no headliners.

They still have night sessions, starting Wednesday

Sydney used to be so good. I remember when Roger used to come here and play

Oh, OK

The women's event is still OK I guess with several top tenners. But the Aussie public barely know players like Kerber and Errani (no offence, I like Kerber) anyway. Having one of the big 3 here would've been better.

The men's field is just shit. It should be upgraded to at least a 500 tournament. Having both Brisbane and Sydney as 250s is a joke

Weird thing is, the men's doubles draw is totally stacked The Top 14 in the world are all there. Nestor/Bhupathi with combined rank of 16 aren't even seeded!

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

Why does Kooyong even exist? they don't even try its like watching a 2 hour warm up. It shouldn't be televised imo.

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

Exactly and they always act like its so important. No one cares about, there isn't even anyone in the stands this year it's just stupid. And it's aesthetically displeasing.

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

It's a glorified practice session. Always has been and always will be. Unbelievable that they televise it.

This.

But I'm curious... what exactly do you dislike about them? I can't quite put my finger on why they bother me so much...

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

Just that they're on every add break. Then I changed the channel and they were on that channel too. The "typical aussie" angle seems a bit forced too

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.
