The ATP have ruined their livescoring

Having sold off the rights to their live score feed to a company that provides livescore feeds for bookmakers, the protennis scoreboard is now often minutes behind real time, dire.

I have a vested interest in this, but does anyone else care?

Re: The ATP have ruined their livescoring

I use bookmakers sites with streams anyway, but it sounds like a sad state of affair what you say... I believe it's meant to lure people into gambling or to forc certain bet patterns with delayed scores.

Either way, far from impressed and I'm sure big cash is made on this.

bet365 scoreboard has always been faster then protennis scoreboard but I've certainly noticed a slowing down lately and sometimes it freezes as well.

Re: The ATP have ruined their livescoring

Are you referring to the live scores on the ATP site?

Re: The ATP have ruined their livescoring

Is it the protennis site's issue. I know today there was a problem, but the Brisbane tournament twitter feed said it was their problem, I think.

Re: The ATP have ruined their livescoring

The atp live scoring was always slighty behind bet365s live scoring for example. I don't know about other bookies

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

It's the same on all 3 tournaments this week, and the announcement of an agreement with this company was made some time ago, although it did not go into specifics it seems the main upshot of it for us is that the protennis scoreboard will be between 30 and 90 seconds slower than it was previously.

Re: The ATP have ruined their livescoring

Is the same company now providing the data for everyone as i assume was the Atp plan or are betting sites still sending their own people?

If its the same company are you suggesting theyre doing it on purpose to favour betting sites who they may have a longer relationship with or just just that they're incompetent?

Is something untoward going on?

I've been using betting sites almost exclusively this year such has been the difference
