Re: Tweeting from ITF tournaments is forbidden now

I will never understand how providing a live score 5 seconds earlier than the official feed will benefit anyone. It's not like the official scoring is 30 minutes behind. This is too much pandering to hard-core gamblers. Millions of people watch tennis without feeling the need to bet on matches at all. Even if they play the occasional bracket pick'em contest, they have to fill out the entire thing, right down to the final match, before the first ball of round 1 is struck. Just get rid of betting on matches that have already started and you won't have a problem.
