Re: Week 45: Loughborough, Great Britain [Entry List]

If this tournament would've been played in...oh crap...Belize, we would've had scores until now, but it's unbelievable that in a civilised country like England there is no one who could update at all (at least once in 5 hours), this is a disgrace tournament really, poor management. Period.

Re: Week 45: Loughborough, Great Britain [Entry List]

Yeah somehow I put Zopp, somehow I trust his serve to get him in the next round. I'm more confident on Ebden tough. But it's frustrating that so much time has past and no result yet...it makes me verry, unconfortable

Re: Week 45: Loughborough, Great Britain [Entry List]

Just sent the following email to the LTA:

Dear Sir/Madam,

I would like to express the dissatisfaction of both myself and the wider global tennis-following community with the lack of information made available by the LTA about professional tournaments in the UK, in particular at Challenger level. I suggest that whoever receives this message should first read the following thread on an internet message board for tennis fans: Week 45: Loughborough, Great Britain [Winner: Matthias BACHINGER] - this should make many of the issues clear. It is quite incredible that for Challengers in countries such as Ecuador or Kazakhstan there are live scores available online and results are published within minutes of matches finishing, yet with UK Challengers we must wait for hours until the drawsheet is updated late in the evening, and along with many others I am baffled as to how this can be the case, as it would only take one member of staff a few seconds per match to simply write one line giving a result.

Any information you have on why this is the case or what steps are being taken to improve the situation would be much appreciated.

Re: Week 45: Loughborough, Great Britain [Entry List]

Michael Lammer (Swi) bt Marek Semjan (Svk) 6-4 3-6 6-4

Jurgen Zopp (Est) bt Flavio Cipolla (Ita) 6-4 3-6 6-4

Matthew Ebden (Aus) bt David Goffin (Bel) 3-6 6-1 7-5

But I'll take my time anywhere
Free to speak my mind anywhere
