Angry New ATP livescore : complaining thread

I don't know what you think of the new ATP livescore but I loved the previous one and hate this new one :

http://www.protennislive.com/lshd/ma...worldtour.com/

1. on internet explorer I'm stuck on homepage, it works on firefox though

2. when you want to see matchstats of a current match and it's not the main court match, it automatically jumps to the main court match 2 seconds after seeing the stats of the match you wanted !! Impossible to see the stats of the match I wanted for more than 2 seconds !

3. the matchstats are too large for my screen : I have to roll down everytime instead of having a full vision as I could have with the ancient livescores.

Why is it that on the modern web, people always try to make better looking sites but which work like shit when their simple old ones worked well ?

Also Stevegtennis used to be such a simple site and working well and now they make it more complicated and better-looking but it's so much longer to load and I have many more problems

I may be very old-fashioned but I used to like the web much more 2 years ago when it was maybe less good-looking but working so much better

If you know a simple website (and where you don't have to register with your credit card like bet365) which has stats for a current match, please tell me

useless old guy

Re: New ATP livescore : complaining thread

I was seriously just about to make this thread. It's pretty, but it bounces me between matches, doesn't work half the time, and break points saved is listed as break points won.

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

I don't know about this one, but I certainly did not love the last one.

Re: New ATP livescore : complaining thread

Was wondering what all the moaning about the new livescore was ........... then I tried it.

It's as bad as the IBM slamtracker.

Re: New ATP livescore : complaining thread

You just have to use to it, I think. I wasn't happy when I saw there was a new one but now I find it better than the previous one, which was always stuck and had always problems

well I did try to use it.

Now working back with the old one, I realize what I mostly preferred : it's made for a small screen, you can see all of the infos you want on your screen without needing to scroll everywhere.

the only better parts of the new one I saw ? the possibility to scroll to challengers without needing to open another website and the players' face pictures

yes, the old one is sometimes stuck, but I doubt that the new one will be less often stuck from what I see.

Re: New ATP livescore : complaining thread

The new version is significantly worse than the old one. I couldn't agree more.

Re: New ATP livescore : complaining thread

New one won't let you select a match other than the one on primary court half the time, try it

Re: New ATP livescore : complaining thread

Saturday -> Click on results, says no results for that day, go ahead a day, suddenly switches to the schedule

Sunday -> Click on results, says no results, this time there is no option to switch days

Today -> Click on results, says no results for that day, go ahead a day, suddenly switches to the schedule
