I never realised the surface at Moscow was so slow.

I never realised the surface at Moscow was so slow.
I watched it too and found it quite funny when the commentator said that Moscow was slower than Filderstadt.......

I always thought a carpet court would be faster than a hardcourt, no matter how quick the hardcourt was????

Marcus1979
Oct 21st, 2004, 04:54 AM
Maybe that is the reason why players such as Davenport and Venus lost that week as they like the faster surfaces.

Damn you foxtel people... :fiery: :sad:Yay! I am now one of those people.:devil: I watched the Kremlin final, although I may have missed the elena/bovina one. It was scheduled for 9.30 to 12 yesterday but when I got back from work, only soccer had dabbed. I figured foxsports had screwed the programming. But now I think someone in my house may have changed channels realised too late i was dabbing tennis and dabbed soccer all over it:fiery: Thanks kerni2003, I am off to kick some butt:fiery:

our coverage is not as bad as I thought it was.

I was pleasantly suprised when I realised all the matches over the next month.

Its strange how channel 7 does the Aus Open, but Channel Nine covers the other slams. Wonder why?

It may be a contract issue.

7 may of only wanted rights for Australian Open and Sydney International.

I do prefer Channel 9 coverage however.

its puzzled me as well why 7 have just part of the tennis.

Lemonskin.
Oct 21st, 2004, 11:44 AM
Will 7 broadcast the Sydney International?

And will 9 do the YEC?

Marcus1979
Oct 21st, 2004, 12:01 PM
Usually its follows

Hopman Cup - ABC
Gold Coast Final - 7
Adidas International - 7
Australian Open - 7
Roland Garros - 7 (what Happened this year) / Foxtel
Wimbledon - 9 / Foxtel
US Open - 9 / Foxtel

Foxtel also have rights for the odd SF and F for other events as well as YEC for both ATP and WTA.

Sing Halilulauh!!!!!!! They shit me, they has so much advertising with Serena and show no WTA events only ATP. When they do they never list it at the front sport section so where stuck looking thru everyday to be dissapointed every month.

Thanks for the heads up,

Here is a tip.

Go to the Foxtel website and type in "WTA" and have it listed as Month ahead.

it should list all WTA tennis coverage over the next month.

Foxtel used to have much much more WTA tournaments coverage.... But since they started to broadcast the ATP Masters Series, they cut down the coverage of the WTA tournaments. :(

NO! You're shitting me! :rolleyes: I have been following tennis for about 10 years now - I DO know this. But that's ALL the coverage we get for the year, except for maybe some of the AUssie guys matches at Wimby and the USO! :p

Besides, I'm usually at Canberra, and the AO so don't watch tv those weeks!

And I KNOW basketball gets no free to air cover...did you read anything I said?

Oct 24th, 2004, 06:07 AM
They've showed the 2nd semi-final Molik vs Schnyder at 8am!!!!

I was a bit disappointed about it, coz' I tried not to check the scores for Maria vs. Elena match so that it would be more excited to watch...... but then, they showed the 2nd semi-final and already being told by the commentator that Maria won the 1st semi-final!!! :(

BTW, Alicia was playing pretty solid throughout the whole match except the very first service game!!!! :)
