View Full Version : I Hate Teletext - they told me the wrong score

Earlier this evening I was really happy because on UK Teletext on the tennis scores pages they had this result:

Daniela Hantuchova beat Svetlana KUZNETSOVA [7] 6-1 6-2

I was so happy and relieved that Danni had won this match so easily - until I came on the board and saw that Svetlana was the one that did the beating.

I really can't stand it when companies get the results wrong and cause the fans fake hope.

Has this happened to anyone else with their fave players

These latest scores sources are like my PamPredictions- rubbish.

Was it Teletext or Ceefax? If it was BBC Ceefax, let me know and I'll get the person responsible fired.

The official Acura site was also saying Daniela had won for about 15 minutes...
