The year Roger won, there was a lengthy pre-final interview/walk around the shrine with Safin. Nothing with Fed
It's also the only year I've watched when they didn't show a sit-down interview with the winner after the ceremony
As for Channel 7's coverage, I thought 2004 was bad enough when they didn't show Fed v Morrisson
Last year, in contrast, was great. They showed all Federer's matches, regardless of other Aussies on other courts.
This year, they haven't shown him yet. Having Foxtel digital active as well, it's unbelievable that no channel is covering his matches live. It makes me, as usual hope all the Aussies lose - ASAP.
What's with the AO scheduling Federer's matches at off-peak times? All the other big names have been given prime-time slots, plus full coverage (if you don't count the insane volume of commercials)
And I'm sick of Channel 7's (all Aussie commentators in fact) grudge against the Argentines. But that's another matter.
