View Full Version : Versus Bashing Thread

I'm watching some endless(ly boring) deuce game in the sharapova/dementieva match, and in this one game the wrong score has flashed at the bottom of the screen THREE times. they did this during the petrova/mauresmo match; jumping the gun in long games. more annoying than this is that they've lost their signal a few times in their first few hours (during the first match, they had to cut to commercial and an entire game's worth of play was missed).

i really don't care the championships are not on ESPN, but it would've been nice if the WTA sold the broadcasting rights to a network competent enough to 1) show the match without interruption, and 2) call the score correctly

I could ask for an international network.. cause.. a lot people cant watch the tournament so..

So damn annoying. And I agree about having a competent network carry coverage. Versus can take a flying leap for all I care. Wta tour tennis is in the doldrums as far as tv coverage is concerned.

when is the last time you got to see 3 womens matches from the Championships live and back to back in the US?

I thought we'd get different commentators for this shit.
Why'd ever get my hopes up?

Versus is new at this. But I'm glad today was live

Nov 7th, 2006, 09:28 PM
Yes that was annoying :o And we couldn't see some of the challenges...

I was able to order versus for $4.95 for 30 days. So far I have no complaint.
