Re: skysports NOT SHOWING SF LIVE!!!!

Check their schedule for Sunday, now that's even worse.

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.

Re: skysports NOT SHOWING SF LIVE!!!!

I'm off to Prenton Park for 3pm anyway, so I won't see any SF.

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

Re: skysports NOT SHOWING SF LIVE!!!!

I just turned on the tv expecting to watch Rafa.....Unbelievable.

Whats the point in showing the whole event up until the Semi Finals. It defies logic

Re: skysports NOT SHOWING SF LIVE!!!!

Thanks a million Sky.
The one TMS tourney where my fave player plays well in, and Sky don't show it live.
There's Footy, Rugby, Golf and shitty A1 racing instead.

Sunday afternoon all four Sky channels have live events: Premiership football, international cricket, motor racing and European rugby, and all those sports would be deemed more important than tennis even if a Brit happened to be playing.

Sucks, don't it?

I disagree, they'd make room for it if there was a Brit playing. Well, maybe not if it was Rusedski

With respect, I doubt if they would. They'd have to deliberately disappoint football/cricket/rugby or motor racing fans who are expecting live coverage of their sports as advertised, and there's no way they'd change their schedule just because a Brit had made it to the final of a tennis tournament.

Don't see why they couldn't put it on interactive though.....

They might have just had gillette on sky sports news and the tennis on sky sports 1 or something

I dunno, but I'm convinced they'd find a way if Henman or Murray were in the Semi's of a TMS.

Sky buy the rights to all the MS then chop them up for the sake of football and other sports.
