Re: I can't see the damn ball!

I had the same probs last year in this tournament, something about Monte Carlo, it can't be just the clay, I didn't see any problems with the Houston event TTC showed.

Yeah, same here, the ball almost flickers mid-rally. Very odd. Maybe it's the coloring of the camerawork or something?

Re: I can't see the damn ball!

On my regular TV I can barely see the ball, but on the wide screen HD set (even though the broadcast isn't in HD) I can see it much better. That being said, I've been watching MC for years and it's always been difficult seeing the ball there.

Thanks for saying that. I thought old age was catching up faster.

Re: I can't see the damn ball!

Odd. I have pretty bad eyesight, and I can see the ball absolutely fine. I do have a widescreen TV with sharp picture quality, but I didn't this time last year and I've been watching Monte Carlo since 2002 with no problems in picking up the ball.

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: I can't see the damn ball!

Well, even sky sports feed isnt that clear. It can be, when the lighting is correct. But when there are shadows, it isnt 100% visible.

Although, the sky sports interactive feed is alot clearer and sharper so its easier to see.
