Does anyone know what will happen scheduling wise with Eurosport and BBC Interactive. I would think that BBC interactive will allow viewers to choose which court they want to watch or if it is just one court? I hope its opposite to eurosport as there will be more variety then.

BBCi last year just showed one court but they picked which they thought were the best matches on the OOP on the televised courts and showed them.

Eurosport pretty much do the same but tend to bounce around courts midmatch a lot more in the early rounds.

I remember getting quite frustrated that they often were showing the same matches.

Well I hope they show Serena and not Safin who can't even play tennis at the moment!

safin isnt that bad. he's funny to watch and has got gazillions of fans. i watched quite a few matches of him this year and he still got the weapons, he just doesnt string the points together that well anymore.

still i'd like them to show serena as well as it is more interesting to see wether the potential juju ree clash could be a good one.

Well it would make more sense to show Serena's match first as it is 99% likely that the Safin match will still be going on when Serena finishes, being best of 5 sets and all. Thus, they could just go and switch to the Safin match after Serena but they probably won't do that. :(

I think BBCi is showing more than one court this year, at least thats what it sounds like from the website.
So I can flick between the Safin and Serena matches!

Hopefully we will not be bogged down by seeing the same players everytim. It was great to see some other players compete last year on the BBC, like Melinda Czink and Aravane Rezai, hopefully we can get something even better this year. Still, good on the BBC for covering it :yeah:
