What on earth were they thinking?

Even the ATP tour scoreboard is better, can't even get live serve stats :rolleyes:

I know this doesnt belong here but I posted in the "live streams" topic and I get a feeling it's not very active in there, so I'll ask here....why on earth is there no Wimbledon coverage on Eurosport 1 or 2 now, does anyone know?

What the hell? So that's why I didn't find anything on their site. The livescore board is gone? Along with all the stats? What the hell, what the hell?

Oh, and anyone else using the Wimbledon app? Am I the only one who has problems with the scores not propely updating in real time? It's several games behind the original live score and sometimes not updating for several minutes. And sometimes the whole app is freezing and I need to restart it. Maddening. :mad:

In other words:
Wimbledon livescoring = crap, where can we send our complains?
Why do we have to put up with that crap? :mad:

I don't remember Eurosport ever showing Wimbledon. Maybe 10+ years ago. They simply don't have the rights.

It's terrible indeed. I want to be able to see an overview of ALL matches going on at the SB, not something with with I have to scroll around over some 15 courts to see what the players are up to.
:stupid: :mad:

Wimby website is going worse and worse every year. It used to be the best GS site few years ago. Lot of info, paid live stream from 8 courts, matches to download after day was over( I miss this option most !), historic matches and Wimby films for free etc., etc.
It is all gone now. What a shame...

Wtf is going on with wimbledon site and scores this year its emmbarrassing this scoreboard i thought all grand slams used the same "IBM slamtracker" and its been that way for the last couple of years dont know why they would change it to this joke scoreboard.

Slam scoring and stats are always shit (eg slamtracker constantly doublecounting aces in the winners table, errors just going completely missing, etc etc). This is even worse than usual though


Just get protennis involved (they do the atp/wta events).

fancy look but totally unusable :facepalm:

Funniest of all is that that SB looks 'fancy', but doesn't manage to change the pictures of the players as soon as the first match on whatever court is over. Hilarious, actually.

Dear Webdesigners: 'fancy stuff' is nice, but rule no. 1 is: MAKE SURE YOUR SH*T IS ACTUALLY WORKING and USER FRIENDLY!

Cant believe the old slamtracker isnt available. The scoreboard is crap with every stats (usualy delayed) redirected to other page. I managed to load the pointstream now, its shit too, showing only stats of few matches on TV courts.

I'm using this page now, at least it has the scores, and updates automatically, though collectively, not real-time.

nothing new, they just lock down nadal fan celebration threads, any thread created by nadal fans......

i thought i would remind people about the old scoreboard, bring back memories......but they thought this small thread about courtside scoreboard is eating away all the cyber space in the world.......

I posted the following to one of the Gulbis threads, then it was suggested to me by "but-it's-ok" (for which, thanks) that I should re-post it here...

As Court 15 has no TV coverage, we normally would fall back on following the match as best we can on the scoreboard.

Alas, however, IBM have crippled this year's Wimbledon website. The SlamTracker scoreboard facility, with built in stats for any selected ongoing match is gone. In it's place there is PointStream, which to me is pointless.

There is a "Matches in Progress" page, which has seemingly promising links to Scoreboard, Stats and PointStream for every match. Unfortunately the Scoreboard option only gives the score of one match at a time on a popup, whilst the Match Statistics option switches to a page which shows the stats as presented in previous years for completed matches. However this display is not quite up to date, and is NOT dynamically kept up to date as the match progresses.

The website is therefore totally useless for following what is happening in all non-televised matches.

I've emailed the website several times to complain, and also to IBM's UK headquarters. My suitably scathing comments sent to a player's page have not been published. I hope that others will also be inclined to complain.
