Well guys - over my time here we've seen some good informative websites (namely the Slam ones, and honestly - I'm not biased here!)


And some truly fucking APPALLING ones...

Sooo for each tourney - let's see what's good and bad!

THIS week - we're in Madrid... and whilst not quite rivalling the Dubai (I think) Fisher Price My First Website look, this one with its sideways scrolling and it's cryptic clues as to where to find the schedule of play is truly truly CRAP!

Thoughts?

Madrid website is awful and you said it - beside general appearance and having to scroll sideways, the most important thing, THE SCHEDULE, is made in such an annoying way. Must say I'm glad I'm not running picks for this. And thank God there are people on this board who make OOP nice and organized in tournament forums.

^ .... and not having the draw sheet in a normal one-page format with list of seeds and points.

Especially as the WTA site draws page has been f****d up for most of the week, and still is this morning.

Madrid website :o. WTA website also sucks and the "news" are sometimes approximately 2 days old. :(

... pista 1... pista 2... :rolls:
Pistas even on web page in English...

I've just found the pdf version :rolleyes:
It was off the bottom of the screen, and I had to close all my tabs to see it. Why did I do this? To find the OOP on another page, which I'd seen earlier.

Stupid website :ras:

I absolutely hate the Madrid website. And it is so disappointing for a tournament of this importance to have such a website. Really a shame if you ask me. :(

I feel all included in forum life in creating a new thread. :bounce:

But this morning I was just growling... literally... at the site ... made the office grump leave me alone, so... you know... bonus!

It is 10 PM CET, but the OOP for tomorrow is not published yet on Mutua pista 1, 2, 3 website. :o Consequently, the WTA site also has not the OOP for tomorrow. :(

Guys
I fed back to the IBM SlamTracker team about the server not being shown on the main screen section (not the All Courts Tab) and also that the mph server speed wasn't being aligned to the right player... seems to be fixed today.

Go JJ!

And what about MY FAVORITE PLAYERS? I can't remove Rafa (not necessarily Ana :o) at all. They fixed him in that section probably assuming that he'll win again.

:o Rafa and Ana still decorate MY FAVORITE PLAYERS section. :rolls: Well, this website worked ok except that section (:mad:) and some other sections. From 5 to 1 i give them 3. :shrug:

I only hope that i won't be watching Rafa's and Venus's smiling faces the whole two weeks on the Wimbledon website. :awww:

Well, this thread is all about websites. So I have to say, it is about time to have an update on Jelena's site. A new blog would be nice, too, because it became very unsteady recently. Last entry is still the one after she won Marbella.:rolleyes:

I think that she does not give a damn for her fans. :shrug: Obviously she doesn't think that she should address her fans at all. She only smiles when she takes picture with them here and there. One more minus for her. :o :(

what about new wta site?

I am not so happy about it. Looks great, yes, but it doesn't work too well. Don't know if this is a problem only I have but every time I am looking for more than one thing and spend a little more time it tells me when I want to check another section (especially the players' profiles) that the website takes too long to respond :o it's really annoying...
So I'd like to know if anyone else is having this problems? :awww:

Saturday, 2 days before the AEGON International.
No information on Demented, Jelena, Ana or any other player that will compete.
Where are the draws?
WTF is going on?
Is this http://www.lta.org.uk really the official website? :confused:

I think for Eastbourne it is... and the LTA site is :speakles:

No! They changed it last night! http://www.lta.org.uk/Global/Downloads/Results/2009/AEGON%20British%20Tennis%20Series/AEGON%20International%20-%20Eastbourne/Order%20of%20play.pdf How couldn't you find it? :confused:

Everything that bothers me with this website is that you must go to WATCH, then to AEGON International, and then to ORDER OF PLAY, and finally to click Order of play. 4 clicks. :( IMO, the first two links are not necessary. The link to OOP should be on the main page, just one click, and you get it. :shrug:

I clicked on OOP when I got in this morning and got yesterday's.
And shit is flying at work so didn't have enough time to fuck about looking for it.


I think the LTA's sites are crap anyway...

Although sometimes the WTA site for OOP info isn't any quicker...

:rolls: I can't remove Roger and Venus from MY WIMBLEDON which is the same section as MY FAVORITE PLAYER on the RG website.

I'll try again tomorrow, but I have no hope that I'll be able to change anything. :yeah: :bigclap: :rolls: :mad: :explode:

It's OK Rozzie. :lol: I am happy that I can follow Matches in Progress while I'm at work, and see the OOP. :shrug:

Have a nice time in Wimbledon (and don't forget to bitchslap ~ ♥ JJ ♥ ~ ) :yeah:

Interesting - i changed My favourites to andy and JJ and then shut the thing and opened it again and it kept it. will check again tonight after I turn the PC off.

I have been practicing my bitchslap... I think I've perfected it now.

I have to pay £25 to park at the nearest car park to where the queue is... but it will be worth it if I get a chance to see her royal GOATiness.

AND... I get to see Nole today...

Just the same thing with usopen.org. :lol: Why the hell they call it My USOPEN org if we can't personalize it. :shrug: I'm sorry but none of these guys is MY FAVORITE. They can't force me to love Roger, Rodick, Rafa, Venus and Serena. And why the fuck Roddick, Rafa and Venus? :confused: Venus lost to Serena in quarter finals last year while JJ reached final, and Roddick and Rafa didn't reach final. Where the fuck is Murray who played final last year? Unfair, unfair, unfair! :mad:

Homepage is crap. News section has no news, they could rename it to olds. I can only watch livescores and completed matches, as well as schedule of play. Only 3 normal pages. All GS websites this year sucked. :(
