Fox Sports (Aus) begins IW coverage early!



finally coverage begins on the 12th which is the Sunday, where previously they started in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

I don't get the guide - anyone know what time Sunday & Monday? Will they be doing this for Miami as well?

A whole (hopefully!) TWO days extra

Re: Fox Sports (Aus) begins IW coverage early!

Thank you!

I was actually looking to edit my post as I saw in the epg that a generous 3 hours of highlights was scheduled for Sunday At least they give us 8 hours Monday night

Then it's back to normal for Miami, missing the first couple of rounds
I love the feed we get, & that's their schedule so... just don't see why they can't begin two days earlier

Re: Fox Sports (Aus) begins IW coverage early!

it's not so surprising they don't usually show round one since there are 32 seeds and they all get byes.

I'm am looking forward to the masters series returning although i prefer the european events because they start at around 7pm in Australia so we get primetime tennis

Indian Wells splits the 2nd round matches (where the seeds come into it) over Saturday & Sunday, & our coverage always begins with the 3rd round matches (except of course this year).

Miami is worse - 2nd round is split over the Friday & Saturday, 3rd round split over Sunday & Monday. As our coverage will as usual be starting with Monday's play, we miss the entire 2nd round and half the third. So in 2004, I missed both of Federer's matches, last year, was lucky with the scheduling in that he played his third round match on Monday. I would guess it's a money issue.

According to another thread, IW is giving earlier coverage this year thanks to Murray...

Well we've got a killer of a day Tuesday, with highlights from 9pm Monday to 5am then it's live till 6pm!

Fox Sports has adjusted Monday's schedule & coverage now begins at 11:00pm not 9:00pm.
We're being bumped for car racing
