It all comes down to money and how much does your budget allow to spend on this. IBM don't do this for free.

Re: Wednesday OOP + scores

It's nice that all 4 Grand Slams are run by IBM. I don't think tournaments (or their sponsors) want to spend the money to hire people of that caliber.

Re: Wednesday OOP + scores

I will say that the facility on the UCLA campus is a great place to watch tennis though!

Re: Wednesday OOP + scores

the tournament person is going to call my cell phone in a bit after she walks over to the court and gets the score

Chela/Tursunov is after the doubles match but Hadad/Mello has already started.

Maybe on the way to the courts she can use her cell phone to smack on the head the person in charge of the online scoreboard

Re: Wednesday OOP + scores

tournament girl says

Mello is up 5-1

yet they are not sure who is on serve and she will let the IT guy know that the board is down.

ALSO, HAAS OR MALISSE TONIGHT?

Re: Wednesday OOP + scores

Believe me, the technology is not that expensive. This tournament has $1M in prize money...it isn't some rinky dink Challenger with no sponsors.

It all comes down to their focus...they are totally focused on the "on site experience" rather than supporting the entire ATP Tour from all channels (onsite, web, and TV). Frankly, 95% of tennis fans are not at each site...but the ATP/tennis in general does little to promote the tour and support the general fan who follows the tour each week. The new US Open Series is a good step in the USA to provide weekend TV coverage but there are an increasing number of fans who want web access (almost everyone is comfortable with the web these days).

This tournament is a great example of what is wrong with tennis...
