some people were interested in his interview, some weren't. if you don't care, ignore it
First of all, watching that you have done a literal interpretation of the expression " worlwide tennis news ", please forget it, because it seems that creates confusion.
I'm not criticizing the fact of posting a Blake's new in GM at all , because i understand that people has the right to post messages about players , being these players very known or been less. I'm not gonna criticize a tennis new about Blake or Mertinak or Bracciali..
What i'm criticizing is that this new isn't talking about a match, talking about a concrete tennis fact, this new is to talk about Blake is gonna be on an american TV..
The problem is that out of the States this new lacks of great importance since this show isn't easy to watch ( sometimes is in pay per view TV's or you need to have a satellite dish aerial) . I have no channel to watch this show, and the 99% of persons in my country have no idea who is Oprah , and if i ask my neighbour do you know Oprah he would tell me : " Oprah what "??
I know this show can be watched out of the States BUT do you think that more than the 1% of french , german , italian citizens watch this show ??
In fact i doubt that more than a 5% of european MTF users are gonna watch this interview with Blake ..
As i unsderstand this new has a very local
importance , i understand is more logical to post this new in Blake's forum, because we aren't talking about a match of James but an american TV program watched mainly by americans..
I hope you have undestood what i mean, the problem isn't Blake, the problem is this new is about the schedule of a TV program.
