belgians: reaction canvas on not covering Kim-Lindsay (in Dutch)

Hi,

As some others on the board, I also send a mail to canvas Sunday evening to express my disapointment in them not covering the IW final.
Today I got an answer. For those who care I'll put it on the board

Bedankt voor uw reactie.

Door het op het laatste ogenblik gewijzigde aanvangsuur van de wedstrijd tussen Clijsters en Davenport, viel de match op een voor ons "ongelukkig" moment. Ten eerste, wisten we niet eens wanneer ze exact zou beginnen, omdat er nog het einde van een mannenmatch vr zat. Moeilijk qua communicatie naar de kijkers toe. Ten tweede, houden we uiteraard rekening met de wensen en behoeften van de reguliere Canvas- en Ketnet-kijkers. Vandaar dat we eerst wl tennis hadden geprogrammeerd om 21u. (met de nodige ingrepen in de
voorziene programmering als gevolg, maar helder en duidelijk gecommuniceerd) en dat we na de uurwijziging beslist hebben om de wedstrijd niet in uitgesteld relais uit te zenden.

Wij zijn in deze ook het "slachtoffer" van de eenzijdige beslissing van de
organisatoren en de Amerikaanse televisie om het aanvangsuur te veranderen.
Excuses, ook wij vinden dit zr vervelend, maar het is helaas niet anders.

met sportieve groeten,

Frank Van Laeken.
hoofdredacteur TV Sport.


On my question as to why they didn't broadcast it later in the evening they didn't answer.

Too bad for us tennisfans, but I kinda understand they didn't show it live (not knowing the starting time and not knowing this days beforehand so they could communicate it). I agree with you that I also don't understand why they didn't show it at 9o'clock anyway (as they were planned to broadcast it then anyway)

I'll try to translate:

Thank you for your reaction

Because the schedule of play was changed at the last moment, the match between Clijsters and Davenport was played at an 'unfortunate' hour for us. First of all we didn't know when it would begin, because the men's match had to be played first and it was unpredictable how long that would take. This caused problems in our 'communication' with the viewers. Secondly we of course also have to keep in mind the whishes of the 'regular' canvas-viewer. Because of this we originally did program tennis at 21h (with the necessary cuts in the normal programming, but that was clearly communicated to the viewers). For the same reasons we decided not to broadcast it after the schedule of play had changed.

We are also 'victim' of the one-sided decission of the organisers and the American television to change the schedule.
Our apologies, we too think this is very annoying and uncomfortable, but unfortunely it can't be changed.

'sportive' regards,

Frank van Laeken,
head of TV Sport


ps. I hope I did a good job translating. If anything isn't clear, don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you for the translation. It makes sense to me. I'm sorry you didn't get to see the match.

well, at least they apologized for the omission... I understood that Lindsay Davenport also complained about the very early time for the final match after playing a late SF against Capriati? Anybody read about it?

Ik vind die uitleg van Va toch maar flauwekul, hoor.

Volgens mij hadden ze toch het risico kunnen nemen om de match in uitgesteld relais om 21.00 uur uit te zenden. De kans dat de match nog niet begonnen zou zijn op dat uur is bijna onbestaande.

Misschien was er een technisch probleem om de match te beginnen uitzenden, terwijl hij in werkelijkheid nog bezig was, maar ik betwijfel dit toch sterk.

Ik heb het gevoel dat ze het zich gemakkelijk gemaakt hebben. Ze hadden de match de dag later kunnen herhalen (zoals op de Aus Open).

yeah Lindsay complained and certain fans used that as an excuse (not on this board but on the other one)

to quote kim: "it rains on both sides of the court"

She complained about the early time, but I don't think it had anything to do with her match with Jennifer, which ended around 11:00 pm Friday evening, over 36 hours before the women's final. As for the schedule being changed, I don't think the organizers had much choice as about 3 inches of rain was falling up until about 30 minutes before the matches started on Sunday
