Is this for real? The only channel showing Wimby is DSF and only from 4pm every day? :fiery: :fiery: :fiery: Has it always been like that?

:sad::sad::sad: Hold me, uhäääää. DSF is bad and evil and only a vassal channel of Premiere, which is a god damn Pay-TV channel in Germany. So it's not a surprise that DSF will only start at 16:00 CET and on Premiere it is starting 2 hours earlier. God, I hate that.:mad: But that's the price we have to pay, our golden times in terms of tennis are long gone.:sad:

excuse me, remember 99, 00, etc

it was even worse.
Premiere had 2 slams and U had no live pictures in free tv. No internet live streams

DSF shows about 5 hours live tennis, it's not that good as eurosport with the other slams but much better than in the past

It depends what you mean with the "past". I'm with you in terms of the situation back in 99 and 2000, no doubt. But I'm obviously a little bit older than you and we already had a way better coverage of all the GS-events back in the late 80's and 90's. I remember that our national TV-Channels like ARD and ZDF had a very HUGE coverage of all GS tournaments at that time. It was like heaven for all the tennis fans. But as I already said, this all came to an end with the retirement of our great heroes and the lack of new heroes. In terms of Steffi we most likely will never have such a tennis heroine again.

But I agree, it's better than nothing. But let's hope that the main focus won't be on our german players. But on the other side I'm not too scared about that, because...hahahaha, everbody knows the sad truth about that, right.:sad::lol:

God, I really hope all german players exit in round 1 or 2 .... I can already imagine it ... A Top-Player like Justine,Federer,Serena etc. is playing on center court and they will show Martina Müller on Court 49 ..... :fiery: :fiery: And the commentators are horrible ... even more so than on Eurosport .... when Sharapova is playing you get the feeling the commentator is secretly masturbating :tape: DSF is pure crap :o

if you think it's great to see Federer defeating...i dont know... Aisam Ul Haq Qureshi 6:3 6:2 6:1.... :lol: Then I'll better like to see a match with lower ranked players which is competetive.... no matter if there's a German or not in that match.

only my opinion ;)

Really annoying.:fiery: All these commercial breaks, but the most annoying thing is this focus on the german players.:o What the hell, so I hope nobody would see this as a lack of patriotism, when I hope that this problem won't exist very soon.;) Because in the end I only want to see some excellent tennis and hopefully my fav playing, nothing more, nothing less.:angel:

I didn't want to believe it but it's true. The DSF commentators are sooo boring. :BIG YAWN: What annoys me the most about the Eurosport commentators (and not just the tennis ones) is the large amount of unnecessary English words thrown into their commentators. Things like "Jetzt muß sie richting fighten." Do they think that "fighten" sounds better/cooler than "kämpfen"? And since when do people say "serviert" instead of "aufschlagen"? Are tennis players serving tables as waiters and waitresses now? :tape:

I could not agree more with your comment.;) We want to see the best possible tennis and I'm sorry, besides a 100% fit Haas, no other german tennis player can give you that right now. Sad but true.

not only the first week. I don't know why they call DSF still sports Channel. It's a Quiz Channel. It sucked last year, it sucks this year.
How is a channel like this, getting the rights for wimbledon?

btw Premiere isn't better. They are showing Haas and Kohlschreiber. Now Becker & Haas.

It would be great if eurosport would show it...like the commentators much more..they prefer quality matches over germans (eg i would love to watch henman moya instead of becker chela)

BTW, DSF seems to hate womens tennsi
