I'm lazy to find the one from last week :p Anyway, I just saw Optus TV guide and it say Fox Sports will have US Open coverage from 1am for live! :eek: I thought they only have night sessions? :confused: At least we have live coverage on Fox Sports while Nine don't show up! :banana:

what about Free to Air TV?

It's like everyone else gets coverage of tennis except people living in Australia with only free to air tv. :tape: We didn't get ANY French Open coverage at all, only the Aussie's at Wimbledon, The Medibank International, Gold Coast Final, and the Australian Open. (which is all mainly Lleyton Hewitt or Mark Poo) That's the only tennis we get here...it's ridiculous!! :armed: I complained to ABC about there being no French Open coverage :lol:

And anyway even if we do get coverage it will be on during the middle of the night :awww:

I'm certainly not staying up until 1am. I wake up at 5:30am to go to work, so at least I'll get to watch some tennis for the hour or so before I leave.

Having said that, I can't believe Channel 9 haven't come to the party this year.

I feel so sad, It's like my ritual to stay up for the US Open and go to school sleepy the next day, now i'll be wide awake and well-rested, whats the fun in that??

I wish I had foxtel, but my parents think its distracting... :sad: :sad:

Yeah I'm really pissed about this too. It's fine for Nine to show from the QF but (i hate to say this) I don't think at least one of my girls is gonna make it that far. At least last year with the ABCs minimal coverage of RG it was something. Tennis use to be shown all the time on Nine (with highlights at 4pm) when my brother use to watch it but now I'm into it and they stop coverage, maybe i'm a jinx!

I think channel nine is showing oh so important ads for the ab-doer or something else equally fascinating. I feel so deprived. It's just adding to my bad mood :mad:

Just because idk, haha. I found out they actually had 4 hours of live coverage starting from 11am (UST) and then they take a break for 4 hours and they show 4 hours of live coverage again :S

coudl be different for you guys but basically this is it for us...

It's under "THURSDAY" (but really friday morning) (EST 1:30-4:30am): Men's Semi's

Friday morning (EST 9:30-11:30am): Men's semi's
Under "Friday night" [but really Saturday morninig] (EST 3:30 - 6am): women's semi's

i think there could have been a misunderstanding since the times are in "am" :confused:

It says there will be tennis on Thurs night at 1.30am (or technically Fri morn)
So it is just the semis onwards. Its good that they are showing something, but still pathetic :mad:

It's a great Slam to watch so it sure sucks that free to air isn't giving it the coverage it deserves.

Fox Sports 2 are only showing Men's matches this morning apart from the Lindsay Davenport Match as part of the Night session !

This is the coverage I have gathered so far from the tv guide, it doesn't look like its going to be live coverage.

Friday morning- 1:30-4:30 am (Mens quarter finals)
Fridary morning- 9:30-11:30 am (Mens quarter finals)
Saturday morning- 3:30 am (Womens semi finals)
Sunday morning- 2:00 (Mens semi-finals)

Either we are getting delayed coverage or they have made some mistake on the tv guide

What do you mean? That actually looks like it WILL be live coverage! Play on Ashe usually starts at 1:30am our time and the night session would then start around 9:30am...that seems to be right!

And then I guess for the semi's the matches start later...

So they're doing the Mens Q-Finals, but not the Womens - how pathetic :rolleyes:

I actually didn't really miss the coverage that much for the first 5 days (since it would mainly focused on such "classics" as Hewitt vs Costa). Now it's really starting to piss me off, especially after seeing todays main court line-up.

I can't believe we can't get someone to show it, given some of the crappy sports that do get shown.

Quite, all they ever want to show is Hewitt anyway.

Thank the gods for the AO.

Sep 4th, 2005, 11:15 AM
Oh, and yeah they'll show Sharapova so we can perve at a pretty 18-y.o.

I like Masha and I sometimes feel pro-Hewitt (I wax and wane on this; sometimes he pisses me off), but they are not the players I want to see all the time.

I don't mind watching maria and Hewitt..wouldn't mind seeing some of Kim's matches though! ;)
