Live Scoring, Webcams, Radio + Website Portal

OK...seems like very few are interested in only live scoring. What about a tennis website similar to the functionality found for the grandslams (US Open, wimbledon, French - Australian does not have webcams or radio)?

In addition, the site would have more including:
- Weekly player features (who is hot, on the comeback trail after injury)
- Equipement updates from the tour...who is using what.
- Weekly ATP and/or Challenger location information (sights to see in the city, information about the hosting club, etc.)

Please take the poll...

Would you pay a monthly subscription for that? Please take the poll

Nothing. But i would pay for a site, that offers a live-stream for every important tournament (masters series, grand slam) and a few other tournaments. Live-Stream has to be in good quality (that means, the ball must be visible).

Re: Live Scoring, Webcams, Radio + Website Portal

I remember watching a live cast from an arabic sports channel during the AO. It was great not having to be bound to only espn coverage meaning I got to see more than just American players. I would defenatly pay money to have a service like that all year round....

i wouldn't pay anything for that stuff

I'd pay for live-steams of matches (assuming that the quality was good), i might pay some for radio if it came with a good scoreboard but i would perfer that i could pick and chose my events, not pay for a whole year

Re: Live Scoring, Webcams, Radio + Website Portal

I would pay for live streaming matches in a fashion similar to what I received during the tournament in Netherlands. The feed was clear. However, I paid for live streaming from Z-Cam for the Dubai event, and it quality was terrible, I was pissed. The Netherlands' feed was free....................isn't that ironic.
