It means no Jankovic vs Kvitova on tv

Just had a look. Apparently they will be starting play on their online service where they will be showing the first matches of all camera courts before transitioning to showing play on TV starting from 3 am. Still doesn't make sense to me as there is no clashes with any other sport.

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

No idea. It's not like they had a clash with other live sports on at that time. I saw they will have a half hour daily show called "us open nightly" and are showing a few older matches in the lead-up as well.

sav001 ESPN is taking over the US Open coverage this year in Australia and they have already fucked it up. They will be starting their coverage not when the play starts at 1 am AEST but at 3 am instead. Why would you do that?

sav001 Just checked the Foxtel guide. They will be showing Wimbledon over 2 channels this year.

Seven are definitely showing Wimbledon this year. They sent out a press release a week ago and they have started promos for it 2 weeks ago.

I hope that doesn't mean we're relying solely on Woodbridge and channel 7 for Wimbledon tv coverage

I'm surprised by the SBS part of it too as I can't recall them showing any tennis since the late 90s.
Look like Foxtel might not be showing Wimbledon this year. They haven't sent out any press releases yet and theres no mention of it on their website or Facebook page.

I wonder if they will still show Aussies ahead of everyone else. As I said I hope they have better commentators than Sam Gore and Kevin Skinner

I think its better that its on ESPN as we will get much more coverage. For the French Fox Sports had only one channel showing it and most of the time they were showing Aussies with some big matches not shown at all.

sav001 Yep good pick up for SBS. Their coverage starts with the Quarterfinals. They will be showing the quarters, semis and finals live Australia wide.

sav001 ESPN has secured Australian and New Zealand broadcast rights to the US*Open tennis tournament, in a five-year deal with United States Tennis Association. ESPN*will have 150 hours of live television across ESPN and ESPN2, plus a record 1,300 hours streaming on WatchESPN with matches from up to 12 courts.

SBS will also show it on Free to Air TV.

Foxtel already shows Wimbledon. Seven only has the pick of what they think will be the best two matches of the day, otherwise Foxtel is free to show all the other matches.
