The FFT's Super Shit WTA Signal

They don't move to Chartrier when Fed & Berdych come on court. Instead, they show the last set of Blake/Monfils, followed by Blake's chat with Ramos, followed by a look at the draw, then the end of a women's match, then results so far today, then bloody musicians & a f***ing scenic tour of Paris, before finally moving to Chartrier. What an absolute joke. Disgraceful.

edit: this year's coverage has been much better than last year's, but way too much dedication to women's matches.

well calm down, it's normal to show a final set with a french player, against the wolrd N°8, instead of the begining of a 1st set
after I agree with you for the music and so on :o

Fed whooped his butt nice and easy. Many errors by Berdy at the beg. of the first set... you didn't miss much... what was Blake complaining about w/Ramos though?

Thanks :)



what was Blake complaining about w/Ramos though?Well, I wasn't really watching, or listening, but it was stuff like this: he was asking Ramos if he'd ever played at a high level, telling him he (Ramos) didn't perform at a high level (today), that he (Blake) doesn't complain to the umpire often, so when he does, like now, he's got a point. I think the commentators said it was something to do with Monfils distracting him near the end or something...?

Anyway, I haven't read the Monfils respect thread but I'm sure there'd be better info in there than what I came up with, not to mentionn clearer :lol:

absolutely, I was on the Chatrier and I almost fell asleep.. ( and then I saw first set of Mauresmo and flee back home :eek: ) Acutally my best match today was Mahut/Benneteau beating Youznhy/ Tipasrevic) the only thing thath put some atmosphere was the time they show Gael's victory on the screen, ppl were clapping more than for this boring match ( and anyway we could heard of all the sound of court n°1 and we knew Gael has won before we saw it on screen)
