Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

thankfully i was at the open for the first four days so i haven't had to put up with channel 7... yet but i've read through the thread and agree with what a lot of you are saying, obviously 7 has exclusive rights to show matches on Rod Laver, so they should stick to showing them. if casual fans (aka. the people who think tennis is only played in January) are that keen to see "crowd favourites" (aka. any player who has made a random run to the open final) they can switch onto foxtel and watch. i watched Mitchell and Duckworth for the whole match because i had an interest in that match, but if i wanted to watch it at home i would've been happy to watch it on foxtel or even a stream, it shouldn't have been on 7 for it's entirety when there was Williams, Azarenka or whoever playing... it was a challenger level match anyway...

also agree with the comments on the aussie flags on the scoreboard... it seems a bit weird to me. we can tell by the way the commentators talk up the players like they will all be world number one and win career grand slams that they are australian, we don't really need the flag too!

i've hardly watched any of 7's coverage and it's already pissing me off!!

Wonder if the tables were turned, would 7 show a Bojana Bobusic match over Roger Federer? Of course not.
It's always Aussies first in the first week It's all about ratings and I'm telling you an Aussie will get higher ratings than Serena smashing some mug.

Really if you don't like what they are showing, just watch it by other means, it's so easy now

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

Don't know if this has been mentioned but Fox Sports showed that WTA strong is beautiful ad and at the end it showed live tennis from Doha Feb 17-18. So looks like Fox Sports won't be picking the slack from no Eurosport coverage. So looks tennistv might be the only option, of course unless you are happy with semis and finals only.

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

at Fox showing split screen of 2 matches - whatever happened to the red button?

Also annoying is 7 showing press conferences on their "megawall" while matches are going on.

It would almost be better off watching matches on the computer

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

Yea caught that one. Poor choice of words, I think he realised it as he was saying it but it was too late. Sam Smith handled it very well and moved on with minimal awkardness.

In Sandy's defence he says that about every player. Still totally awks though.

Re: AUS TV - 2011 Coverage

I Wonder if they will show Ash/Casey or Sharapova v Makarova

Most likely the singles match but I think they'll switch it over from time to time.

It's because she's not dancing anymore

Todd Woodbridge: I was talking to John McEnroe one day and I said my name was Todd and he said I've got a dog named Todd
Sam Smith: oh dear


that cracked me up
