Re: USA WTA coverage the worst on the planet!

You know what, I can understand that TV stations are not that much interested in Tennis if it's not very popular BUT TENNIS CHANNEL? WTF?

And it's really funny because internationals have really great coverage...almost every of them... even some Baku or Guanzghogu (I don't even know how to spell it ) [Hsieh def Robson in the final though I remember that ]

And in the US you have this whole USO series and two PM.......

But I've read some time ago (maybe even on TF) that US Open will be showing every court (don't know when though)
so that's something good at least..

I mean we are in the 21st century and they can't take two webcameras and put them on the centre court.

Coverage is good as long we can see a doubles match with Castano...

The author of this tread knows it. He wanted just ventilate his anger and give us an option to spit on the US coverage.

at least get some cameras out so we can see it, if they dont wanna show it themselves
Yes, but this late start/limited coverage was typical for almost all tournaments back then

Not current and not singles, but Zimbabwe has a former #1 and multi-slam winning doubles player who is still making waves on the doubles tour.

Re: USA WTA coverage the worst on the planet!

I'm surprised not enough fans who are present don't record some of the matches and upload that amateur footage. That is better than nothing. 10 years ago, when noone had a decent camera phone, understandable, but nowadays, it's weird.

I always found Australia has bad Tennis Coverage. We get the Aussie summer and that's it pretty much unless you pay for pay TV and even if you that only gives you other 3 majors coverage.

You would need to be authorized to 'reproduce' any part of the events. But if you ask formally, you will likely be dennied. Play stupid and they will likely pretend not to see you .

Interesting. But still it is incomparable to the US.
