Angle of camera during tennis coverage?

Do you guys prefer tennis is shown with the camera angled/at court level or from above. I like it when it alternates.

Re: Angle of camera during tennis coverage?

i dont like court level. the usual above one makes it easier to follow the ball. The lower one is to watch the players movements which should not be the focus during the point. Its ok to show that stuff between points though

Go Hewitt and other Aussies

During a match I prefer above. Court level hides a lot of the view

Re: Angle of camera during tennis coverage?

During the points I prefer a mixture of about 90% above the court and 10% court level camera. From above the court is the classic and should be the priority, but sometimes it's nice to be a bit closer to the action, too, because it gives you a different impression on the speed of the game, although your not able to see other details (such as where exactly the ball lands).

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

True, that's why it would be great to get dvd's with possibility to relive it from both angles

Re: Angle of camera during tennis coverage?

If Tennis were as popular here in Germany as Formula 1, then we would get 5 channels with different angles. Player 1 closeup, Player 2 closeup, TV View, Court level view, umpire view, etc.
