Barcelona coverage is an absolute joke

I went to check some of the matches that were being played earlier, quite fancied watching the talented youngster Zverev against Bellucci. but to my shock found out that the match wasn't even streamed. It wasn't the only match either, WTA matches doubles matches, challengers and futures were all there but no sign of Barcelona. I ended up watching this match.



This is an absolute joke the fact that a player barely ranked inside the top 2000 is getting streamed but no Barcelona featuring a potential future slam winner, Nishikori has also in the past not been shown on tv at this event the fact that one of the best shot makers in the world was not shown is unacceptable, they need to get there act together otherwise it should be demoted to a 250. This is an absolute disgrace.

Re: Barcelona coverage is an absolute joke

They turn on the cameras from 1:30pm CET.

It is pretty stupid, IMO. Generally, the 500 events are the worst for streaming and that doesn't make a lot of sense.

It's all PR... Someone started talking about Coric and now you guys believe he's so wonderful kid, his highest ranking - 84, Dzumhur highest ranking - 87. The same actually. Difference? Coric made it via wildcards - to Basel for example, Dzumhur had to reach it by hard work, on qualies, challengers.

Re: Barcelona coverage is an absolute joke

It's always like that in the ATP 500's, only central court streamed worldwide and another court streamed locally (some events, like Tokyo or Rio).

Probably they can't stream the first match because of some restriction in daily matches allowed. Remember, Barcelona has a 48 player draw, while most of the others 500's have a 32 player draw.

Re: Barcelona coverage is an absolute joke

I agree-it stinks! I never even got to see Denis Istomin play. I also wish the commentators would just shut up already. Someone should apply duct tape to James Blake's stupid mouth.

Bucharest has three courts streamed, right? Centre, no. 1 and no. 4?

Federer on what aspects of Rafael Nadal's and others' games elevate him as a player
I have actually helped more the other players than they have helped me to improve, because I put tennis in a different league.

Guess who?
Next year it’s going to be better for Davis Cup and they might be rewarded by me playing again more often.

You guys are the real joke, complaining about Internet Explorer and MSN, but having no words about the lame Catalan organizers.

Re: Barcelona coverage is an absolute joke

I don't know if 2014 or 2015 but Court 1 was streamed too. There are a lot of interesting matches on that court like tomorrow's Paire vs Cuevas

I don't understand but is also a tradition not streaming the first match on centre court

Re: Barcelona coverage is an absolute joke



j/k But seriously though, it is odd that 500 level tournaments have less coverage than 250 ones, when you naturally think the higher tier tournament would have more coverage, I mean 1000s and Slams have a lot more than the previous 2 but the 500's have the least coverage I think among all ATP coverage and that includes Futures and Challengers (the latter two I think are free-to-view). Barcelona is probably the worst with the first match not even shown. I mean you already have the camera so why not use it?
