Exclamation Uk peeps lets get some damn coverage

So i knw i am not the only person frsutrated with Sky refusing to show night matches, and only doing minor coverage of games not involving the brits! and with the USO coming up i certainly don't want a repeat of last years and now henman v roddick oops no soryr here's some teleshopping mess up.

so i decided to send them a very and i do mean VERY long complaint and i figure the more people who do it the more chance of them actually doing something about it, even if they just put it on interactive at night so we can see it i'm sure it can't interfere with their busy teleshopping schedule so much

if you want to help us out and complain please do so at!

if youre not in the uk feel free to complain too and pretend you are, you know we'd do it for you!

Good Luck to my boys

Re: Uk peeps lets get some damn coverage

I am extremely pissed that I have to watch Rafa's match via a livescoring portal on the Internet, yes.

My gosh, I wish they'd get their act together; it's not like it's that late here, so they could show the night matches!- I don't need Chris Baily and Peter in a studio to chat after the match- send them home to bed and just put on the live coverage!!

Re: Uk peeps lets get some damn coverage

Peter Flemming is irritating.

I mean both he and Chris Bailey take about an hour to explain how someone hits a forehand. They take ages just to finish a sentence and make stupid faces and pause all the time

Re: Uk peeps lets get some damn coverage

excatly! and i don't see why we can't have it on interactive if we can't get it on normal coverage! and you know we're not gonna get any coverage of rafa/paulo tomorrow coz they're gonna be replaying greg getting his butt kicked by andre (please god let him get his butt kicked) all day! so i'm gonna have to pay someone on here to send me a dvd coz it's 2 of my fave players against each other

so yes everyone get sending complaints then hopefully we won't have that have that problem during the USO

Good Luck to my boys

Re: Uk peeps lets get some damn coverage

luckily, you have coverage of all masters series, and interactive. We have nothing, only Hamburg.

Re: Uk peeps lets get some damn coverage

be happy with that what you have. When Premiere showed the Masters Series they showed us 2 h's per day or even a match went over 3 sets and they finished coverage after 2.

People whinge endlessly about the journeyman ex-pros who make up Sky's commentary team, but if you don't know who Peter Fleming is (one half of one of the greatest doubles teams in history), something must be wrong.

Ah, Bails. Charming fellow, but he has all the insight and erudition of a tsetse fly.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Exactly. Why he's the face of Sky tennis I will never know.
