... to have live commentary for every match that we can't see? I mean they could just get someone that's there to do it OR hire people, it would be a lot better than biting ur nails at a SCOREBOARD?

So why can't it be done?

Well they would have to pay for commentators for tiny courts and tiny tournaments. Would be great though or at least fix the good dam scoreboard

Tennis earth does text commentary which is handy if you don't want to go nuts with the ole internet usage. But I think they still only do the main tournaments that have livestream.

2nd page, not so important :awww:

Seriously, I agree. In fact, would it be so hard for them to just have a permanent, FREE livestream all the time. Not just for the big finals and stuff. Access to regular tennis coverage is so hard to get.

It is IMPORTANT ! Can't you see the caps :p

I understand that the free live stream all the time would be a bit hard, cos they won't be making any money!

But with Bogota and Memphis with no coverage cos no one wants to buy it - they should offer live commentary! I mean i know a lot of people on this site who could work for them and do that :shrug:

I need a meeting with Larry Scott :lol:

So do I! I would have so much to say to him, it seems like they're doing so much wrong!

Has Bogota EVER been shown on ANY tv channel? What's the point of holding the tournament if only the 500 people who show up can see it live? :o


I think there should be a thing on their website where you can download/watch full matches. Not those 2 minute highlight reels they have.

WWW? Fool commentating vs Scoreboard
Surely its better to have commentary.

Yeah! And they could hire good people!

We need more streams! And free streams for the internationals!

But by that rule half/ all the ITF tour would be scrapped :lol:

I like the idea! A little revolution.
