Canvas will show nothing, neither will TV1! :mad:
Eurosport will probably show most matches.

Fucking Canvas :mad:
Jan 12th, 2003, 07:59 PM
Like anyone ever watches Canvas when there's no tennis on it... :rolleyes:
Jan 12th, 2003, 08:04 PM
I think eurosport will show all matches. Coverage starts @ 1am CET and runs through the whole night & the next morning.
Jan 12th, 2003, 08:17 PM
I'm just gonna watch it all and stay at home from school tomorrow... :devil:
Jan 12th, 2003, 08:35 PM
Eurosport will start with men match. So not the Henin-Cassanova match.
Maybe ARD will show Henin match?
Or is their a German player who also plays an opening match today?
Jan 12th, 2003, 10:16 PM
Prinosil is playing Costa on Showcourt 3. That might interest ARD.
Jan 12th, 2003, 10:46 PM
ARD can also show the Arn-Nadia match, I hope so...
btw, any good reasons ARD coverage first start at 1:15?
Jan 12th, 2003, 11:02 PM
Arn-Nadia might soon be over, and I don't think that they have that court covered. It looks like Prinosil-Costa. :eek:
Jan 12th, 2003, 11:16 PM
Jorn, ARD isn't really interested in broadcasting tennis, so they start at whatever suits them. :rolleyes:
They will show Prinosil vs. Costa, I'm 99 % sure. Then Rittner vs. Evie probably.
Jan 12th, 2003, 11:26 PM
Woohoo, our prediction was right ! :rolleyes:
Thank god Prinosil sucks so much that it won't take too long. ;)
Jan 12th, 2003, 11:34 PM
So far, Prinosil is sucking 4-6, 1-4. Looks promising. Yes, ARD has some strange habits. What's up with the "Tagesschau" interruptions several times during the night? They always pull that stunt, and I have absolutely no clue why.
Jan 12th, 2003, 11:35 PM
Barbara Rittner-Evie Dominikovic isn't exactly something to tell the grandchildren about...
Jan 12th, 2003, 11:40 PM
20 minutes into their Aus Open coverage of 2003, ARD switches to a portrait of a speedskater!
Jan 12th, 2003, 11:41 PM
Well, they do that 'Tagesschau' thing regularly, so they won't stop that habit for tennis.
They are showing a report about an ice-skater right now, BTW. :rolleyes: :mad:
Jan 12th, 2003, 11:42 PM
ARD will show:
Anna K -
Jan 12th, 2003, 11:50 PM
But Costa will win much sooner than Paradorn it seems, so I wonder what they will put between. Oh, I forgot, they are not even showing Prinosol live, so they'll probably just relay that thing until Paradorn has finished the job.
Okay, shouldn't bitch, at least they are covering the tournament. And it's commercial-free.
Jan 12th, 2003, 11:53 PM
Well, Rittner is following right after Costa, and during the break they will certainly find another sport they can show. :rolleyes:
But I'm actually not surprised about this BS.
Jan 13th, 2003, 12:00 AM
ARD is a big joke. :fiery:
Of course they are free to show whatever they want, but their program schedule says TENNIS and only TENNIS, so I expect TENNIS, and not speed-skating.
And I don't even have Eurosport. I better go to bed instead of throwing my TV out of the window. :rolleyes:
