Eurosport Viewers.. Rate this year's AO Coverage!

So...

What grade would you give Eurosport for their coverage of the Australian Open this year?

1 = Lowest
10 = Highest

5 is a fail - 6 is a pass.

Re: Eurosport Viewers.. Rate this year's AO Coverage!

I give it a 4

- They stop before play is finished.
- They zap between matches so you can't follow either match properly.
- Commentary seems to have reached another low

Oh and we get replays of matches when actual live tennis is on

coverage is great. I can't complain at all. A little highlight show would be a nice extra feature though

I also think coverage is great and I don't know what all these people want from EuroSport? They show many matches and they stick to where the action is most interesting. I actually don't remember to be irritated with their's choice of court not a single time! So thumbs up for EuroSport And the commentary sounds good enough to me.

Re: Eurosport Viewers.. Rate this year's AO Coverage!

I’ll give EuroSport a 7 – after all there’s always room for improvement
From what I have read on MTF, European coverage is better than most so don’t give them too hard a time huh!

Re: Eurosport Viewers.. Rate this year's AO Coverage!

8- Swedish commentators are pretty good. I kind of like when they switch between matches this early on, you get to see more players this way. It's a shame though they don't cover the night session now at the week-end when I have time to watch. Is biathlon big on the continent?

Raglefant? Dovregubbe?

Re: Eurosport Viewers.. Rate this year's AO Coverage!

I didn't get to watch much of the live coverage during the week, but based on what I did watch - I liked the commentary and I didn't mind switching between the matches (but only because Rafa and Marat aren't playing ).
Basically I'm just happy to be watching any tennis at all. BUT I miss the highlights show and I think that no night matches over the weekend is pretty much a disgrace. So a 7 from me.

Re: Eurosport Viewers.. Rate this year's AO Coverage!

Alot of work is needed to pass! I give them a 3 at best, some days its a 2

Luckily, I have bbci which means my coverage all together is probably a 5!
