Re: Aussie free-to-air gets a weekly tennis show!

As if I needed this! I don't know if it'll keep me calm in the lead up to the aus open, or make me even more excited

My fingers are crossed it isnt purely Aussies loving Aussies. I can tolerate it if it's about 60% pro-Australia, I'm just hoping they talk about people that arent in the top ten every now and then.

I will be down there for the Aus Open, and that's where all the money for me has been going.

It's a great tournament and a festive atmosphere, something the US Open wishes it had.

Re: Aussie free-to-air gets a weekly tennis show!

About time! I remember when they had the ATP Tennis show on the ABC, as well as TMS coverage, but they stopped that. Finally something tennis-related when no Slams or DC are on.
Hopefully it wont just be about Aussies. I saw Sandon Stolle do little pieces for the Channel 7 coverage a few years back and it was good, he was very funny, so hopefully its more of the same.

FryslanBoppe: I agree about the Aussie Open. Its the only Slam I've been to but I think its got the most energy and atmosphere out of all the Slams, just judging by TV coverage of all the rest. Your money is well spent

Sandon Stolle is a good bloke and hopefully this show will be a good one.

Don't forget that FB will be coming from Scandinavia to watch the Open, and I have been there as well and the other Slams apart from the US Open, and it's definitely a great tournament, though McNamee is a bit of a wanker.

Go free-to-air. Hopefully they'll keep to WTA portion of the program to a minimum.

Re: Aussie free-to-air gets a weekly tennis show!

Hmmm well I'm quite content with my cable tv But this is good - I got a letter in the mail about it the other day but it didn't say too much. Hopefully its worth watching.

Bring on the AO


GOOD LUCK

Fernando Verdasco | Paul-Henri Mathieu | Richard Gasquet

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga | Marat Safin | Juan Carlos Ferrero | Carlos Moya | David Nalbandian | Mathieu Montcourt | Nicolas Mahut

Re: Aussie free-to-air gets a weekly tennis show!

liz why did u get a letter in the mail about it?!!!! and why didnt i?!! lol
i'm a bit skeptical about it...ten bucks it'll be australian-obsessed or americanised...hope i'm proved wrong!

Séb Grosjean ; Arnaud Clément ; Guillermo Coria; Marcos Baghdatis; Jo Jo Tsonga
Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick are arrogant pigs

Re: Aussie free-to-air gets a weekly tennis show!

Only just started buying that (grabbed the last 2)

Not sure if I'll keep buying them though, but what I really like is the availability of back issues....I think I might grab some back from when Rafter won his uso titles, made the wimbledon finals, and also maybe some of Cash, and Lleytons 01/02 titles
