Live coverage of Shanghai on ABC for Australians!...



When was the last time this happened

Sure, it'll be on ABC at 10pm (plus token highlights on Fox Sports) but for those of us with Foxtel, especially those who, like me, only have it for the tennis (well, I'm ditching it next year ) it sucks. I loved the coverage the last 2 years. And now that it's in Shanghai, with only a 3 hour time difference it seems a shame to have it tape-delayed.

Re: No live coverage of AMC Shanghai for Australians!

I looked at the Masters Cup website and it says that the singles matches start at 7:00p.m so if it is a 3 hour difference as you say, that would be live, wouldn't it?

Anyway, it's good news for me. I'm so excited! After the hurrendous coverage we've had this year on free-to-air (apart from the Aussie Open), it'll be great to see something unexpected.

Re: No live coverage of AMC Shanghai for Australians!

I have lost faith in free-to-air TV stations. No French Open, only the second week of the USO. I'd be happy if we can still watch the final, live or recorded, since Hewitt is likely to withdraw.

krystlel, I agree. Nearly all sports coverage this year is awful, maybe except SBS's Ashes series (I hate cricket, but I watched ).

Re: No live coverage of AMC Shanghai for Australians!

I just checked on the World Time Server website and Shanghai is 3 hours behind the Eastern seaboard in time.

So as they will have 2 matches on in the evening, it is more than likely to be live as was explained earlier.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
