just wanted to let you folks know. the two late quarters today, the semis, and the final, are all live. looks like they changed their scheduling because i'm pretty sure they didn't show anything during the week.

i don't know, i was talking about star sports india.

by the way, crowd attendance here is pathetic, with like 15 people in the stands. even antwerp was better than this. how can this possibly be a tier 2?

and the star sports commentary is just... bad. they might as well switch it off.


:help:

ESPN STAR has the telecast right for the Bangalore Open from this year and its aired live on Star sports India.
The crowd attendance is really low and this proves no matter how many big players u get in,home players are most watched and wanted by crowds and in India where people have started watching tennis just bcoz of the emergence of Sania Mirza without her this tournament was going to be just a disaster for sure.

So hope the organisers are listening this :lol:

no i meant just getting the williams and JJ wont be of great help until and unless sania is roped in to be a part of the tourny.
So next time the organisers shuld get practical and admit without sania the open was a sureshot failure
