They're showing some awesome vintage matches. Each round successfully. An you can follow it with livescoring on their website. And I love the selection. Just finished watching BJK vs Navratilova 1980 and now they're showing Venus vs Hingis 2000. Because of the schedule of the premieres it almost feels like a real tournament. Makes me miss Wimbledon much less. I know French Open did similar thing but Wimbledon took it to the next level :D

Yes! It's a really nice idea; I watched Lori McNeil's 1st round upset over Steffi Graf the other day.

Venus-Steffi from 99 was a phenomenal match. 2 of the best ever athletes in a gripping match 😀😀

I like it a lot. I just wish there was even more of it. It's good to see some of those matches again and also some of the much older stuff. You can really see how the game has changed.

It sounds like a great idea but oh dear I do not want to live through the 2009 semifinal again :cry:

Me either. Poor Safina! Never stood a chance.

I know the back injury didn't flare up until the 2010 Aussie, but the Wimbledon semifinal ended her elite career. Only won an international event after that, I think?

Exactly that's why I love it. Also the fact they're were showing those early round matches. I had a chance to watch Venus vs Magdalena Grzybowska (Vee's debut) for the first time.

Great idea :) But I‘m also afraid to see Serena/Dementieva 2009 again :( Can‘t watch it.

Overall nice move from Wimbledon. US Open is also uploading some old matches day by day.

I've been noticing how much colour they allowed back in the day! I wonder when the literal 1-inch (or is it 1-centimetre) logo rule came in? It was so rude that in 2017 they gave Vee an official warning after her mwatch because her bra strap came a little lose and was coloured.
