I'm really pissed off that in this day & age there's no 'red button' feature or something. While a lot of viewers are only interested in the Australians, there are also a lot who want to watch the best players in the world. It's bollocks.

This.

Lets be honest, who cares about irrelevant, obnoxious and overhyped Australian players anyway.

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

let's be real guys ... casual Aussie tennis fans would obviously want to watch Tomic or any other aussie player than Serena. They can't always cater for everyone

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

I see no problem with them showing our top ranked Aussie male causing a first-round upset. You guys thinking it could or should have been otherwise are a bit TBH

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

^ Agreed. I may not have been that interested in the match, but I see no issue with their scheduling decision.

To think otherwise is a bit whako really.

But anyway, back to the issue of Aus coverage. Wally Masur is a fucking dipshit.

No im not saying that. It was just that Tomics match was so boring and I was so annoyed they scheduled it like that becuase I was sooo looking forward to seeing her on tv.

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

At least 7 showed some Robson/Kirilenko.
Although they kept having to remind us they couldn't "contractually" show Djokovic

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

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

I would've thought with 7 being the free to air channel they would get the pick of the matches to show

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