Re: BBC/Eurosport/Sky Sports/ Etc - Coverage, Moan Thread!

Did anyone watch Eurosport's French Open coverage last year?

Can anyone remembered at what stage they stopped all this IRRITATING flicking around between matches and just frigging showed a complete match start to finish?

Am I really going to have to wait until all singles are scheduled on Chatrier for that?

It's driving me up the wall.

and to Eurosport for the WTA show that they presented as RG coverage.

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".

Good question. I fear that as long as 2 matches take place at the same time, they're prone to continue with the flicking shit. This year it really annoys me more than usual.

Now they're already showing the 2nd womens match. First Henin-Hardenne and now Grönefeld-Kirilenko! WTF? I want Hewitt-Hrbaty damnit!
The same on British ES?

Sadly - yes Hewitt/Hrbaty would be a far better match than this shitty WTA rubbish - even Stepanek/Benneteau would be preferable.

I was worried yesterday that ES France would covered the French chick Rezai instead of Fed. Fortunatelly they broadcasted TMF and I love to hear Deblicker's* comments when Roger is playing .

I think not. Stepanek v Benneteau is incomparable to 2 top 25 wta women playing. I don't see what the problem is with them showing that.

Let's say everyone to their own I just happen to HATE womens' tennis - it's a personal thing - and at least Stepanek is a top-ranked player with a personality (like him or loathe him) and the fact he is playing a Frenchman means there will be loads of atmosphere on court. These two girls are like watching paint dry for me - I'm just hoping BBC interractive will show Hewitt when Hantuchova is over.

NBC is so useless. Their only matches they show live are the final, wtf.

Follow my Youtube Channel for all my matches

I'm glad that Swiss channels are showing Hewitt instead of that WTA crap.

Rosie, you just don't appreciate Kirilenko's beauty.
I can see Hewitt-Stepanek too on my Russian pay TV (NTV+ tennis channel). I will never complain about this service.

why does everyone want so see that arrogant loser? He's going to beat Hrbaty it seems so... i'd rather watch anything.

I hope they show Dementieva v Peer somewhere
