Re: NBC

American television is a business.

Taped American players ratings > most live non-American players ratings

Re: NBC

WHAT IS WITH THEM... AN AMERICAN STATION FOCUSING PRIMARLY ON AMERICAN PLAYERS!!

WHAT HAS THIS WORLD COME TO!?!?!

It's like that with every station in every country.

In Canada, they'll show a taped hockey game Canada verses Germany with Canada thrashing them 8-0... over a very close and exciting live game between two other countries.

In "Swiss land" I bet dollars to donuts they'll show a Federer whoopin' over a very close match.

God. This board is so anti-american it's ridiculous.

Re: NBC

Did you expect anything else? ESPN would rather show a blonde borefest than an exciting match...no surprise this predicatble blowout is on

Re: NBC

It's obvious. NBC is an American-owned station, of course they are going to play an American's match...no matter how much of a 'borefest' it is. Hate to break it to you, but most Americans don't know who Murray is, so what point would there be in showing that match if the ratings aren't going to be that great? And it's just not just American TV that does that, so don't even start. Every country's station is naturally going to cover more of 'their' players than another's. The US is going to show the American matches, it's not that big of a deal.

Oh really? You're trying to say television stations in your country doesn't market their broadcasting towards Indian viewers? If I recall, I remember a women Indian tennis player receiving a whole bunch of hype in all the Indian newspapers, during the Aussie Open. And she what? only won 2 matches? That's biased.

Television stations in India broadcast whatever their market demands, which is again, biased.

If they don't, no wonder India has the economic problems that they do.

Re: NBC

I'm hoping that NBC swtiches to the DAvid/Murray match at the end of the Andy match - which probably only 1/2 hour to go.

Por favor...don't show an old match from this morning.

But I bet they will show an old match from the morning...

Re: NBC

NBC is dragging and hoping Murray will finish the match FAST so they can show Serena!
