I've never had that problem.

The only problem I've had is that I cannot see any completed results. I literally don't know half the results of matches today, won't probably find out till I check on my iphone app tonight

I had no problem with the "completed results" function.

but I had similar problems as djokogonzo for current matches : I can select another one but 2 seconds later it switched to the main court one, at least when I wanted to watch the stats.

The old scoreboard still works, you just have to enter the current week (eg season 2013 week 1):

Re: New ATP livescore : complaining thread

Why is it that the ATP site can not get anything correct?
You can't follow a match not on the main court for more than a few seconds.
I didn't particularly like the old one, but now that looks so good.
It has a few good features, I'll give them that. But, its usability is zero.

It's definitely worse than that.

Re: New ATP livescore : complaining thread

There was no reason to overcomplicate the old livescores

At least the scores on the main site header are the same, they're the only quick update I can get on iphone without flash. The mobile version of the site is ridiculously slow to update.

can't rep you again, but thanks!

I haven't even used it much but one of my biggest complaints about it is that it's so big. When I'm at work, the old one sat quite discreetly on my screen among other, bigger (work-related) windows. These ATP folks should spare a thought for those of us stuck in the office trying to look like we're working and not draw attention to the fact that we're following tennis scores.

I often use this site for live scores.
http://www.flashscore.com/tennis/

I can just select 'live matches' or select my own matches and then shrink down the window size.

There is a "ATP/WTA Live" app which works alright.

Re: New ATP livescore : complaining thread

the only positive is that it has challengers and atp on the same site.

apart from that it sucks beyond belief so far.

Re: New ATP livescore : complaining thread

Oh, for god's sake...why couldn't they just leave well enough alone? It was simple and worked, so of course they had to mess with it. Hate the new one.

Re: New ATP livescore : complaining thread

I like it and I've had no issues so far, except some of the draws not displaying properly.

The old one needed to change. It took up too much memory for what little it provided and the flash movements were so 1992.
