Federer live on tv?

Cervantes

Anyone know if Roger's match will be shown live anywhere?

Raquel
08-16-2004, 04:19 PM
I can watch it in the UK live, I can give updates if you can't see it where you are Cervantes

Cervantes
08-16-2004, 04:23 PM
ah, it is on one of the digital channels? i wish we had something like that over here. so far i haven't seen one tennisball one the dutch television (not surprising since we don't have anyone competing)

Cervantes
08-16-2004, 04:24 PM
updates would be great Raquel, thanks

Cervantes

I am in the Netherlands, but I do have access to satellite so if some Swiss or German station airs it I might be able to see it.

ytben

Yes Raquel, any update will be greatly appreciated :). No coverage for me :(

Raquel

1-0 Roger, holds to love

Thanks Raquel :kiss:

Really appreciated!

Come on Rogi!!!

Cervantes
08-16-2004, 04:45 PM
Can't find a Swiss chanel, did find tennis on German tv, but they're showing Massu vs Kuerten.

Raquel
08-16-2004, 04:46 PM
Roger holds for 3-0 :)

Tracy Austin just said that when Roger won Wimbledon, Gstaad and Canada back to back he was the first person since Borg to win 3 straight titles on 3 different surfaces :worship: I didn't know that!

studzien
08-16-2004, 04:46 PM
This match is live on Slovakian TV, but on satelitte it's encrypted :(
Federer leads 3-0*

ytben
08-16-2004, 04:46 PM
:D :D Keep going Rogi!

Cervantes
08-16-2004, 04:47 PM
Slovakian TV rules! Unfortunately I can't get it, I just went through 100 channels but I only found Kuerten vs Massu on ZDF.

Go Roger!!

studzien
08-16-2004, 04:49 PM
I think that Slovakian TV rules too.
Yesterday Safin-Kucera, today Moya-Enqvist and now Federer-Davydenko.
And commentator language is like Polish ;)

Raquel
08-16-2004, 04:51 PM
Davydenko holds for 3-1. Went to Deuce

Roger is playing so well. The crowd were gasping in mid rally at the backhands he hit in one rally!

It is so windy at the stadium, but Roger is coping very well :)

studzien
08-16-2004, 04:51 PM
What a nice Federer backhand play!
Davydenko holds to 40.
Now it's *3-1 for Federer

Cervantes
08-16-2004, 04:51 PM
I don't need commentary, I just want to Roger's awesome tennis.

3-1 to Roger now

lsy
08-16-2004, 04:53 PM
wow...thanks guys.

Good to hear that he's coping well out there, really relieved to hear.

Keep going Rogi!

Raquel
08-16-2004, 04:54 PM
4-1 Roger :)

Davydenko is standing so far back to receive serves. Staying very deep.

Roger is looking in good form so far, especially on backhand

Davydenko breaks for 2-0. He hit 2 great winners in that game.

Raquel
08-16-2004, 05:24 PM
Roger just got a warning for hitting a ball out of the stadium. Very frustrated with that last game.

Come on Rogi!

@Cervantes: 11954 H 27500 3/4

hm, I don't exactly know how it works, but I'll give it a try. Is that the satellite position or something?

TheHawk
08-16-2004, 05:25 PM
Yes, the coordinates of the channel, the two you found are on 12110 or something like that, the one you need is on 11954.

ytben
08-16-2004, 05:27 PM
Rogi :eek: Thanks for the comments Raquel. C'mon Rogi, let's break right back here for my nerves!

Raquel
08-16-2004, 05:28 PM
Davydenko 3-0 (Roger had 0-30) Roger throwing the racket down after a couple of unforced errors.
Davydenko playing well, some great rallies and the crowd enjoying this match.

Roger fired up after that last game, attacking the net and hitting harder than normal but overhitting on some shots.

tschaeggy
08-16-2004, 05:29 PM
oh oh, roger isn't that cool in this moment, he seems to be frustratet,racket to the floor, ball out to the roof- what happens??? come on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Calm down Roger, break him now!!!!

Raquel
08-16-2004, 05:34 PM
Roger breaks back for 2-3 :) A couple of brilliant forehands from Rogi, forcing errors. Roger coming to net more and hit a winning volley at 15-15. Amazing forehand winner to break!

Davydenko is a great scrambler, getting lots of Roger's good shots back but Roger doing enough in that game

yanchr

asotgod
08-16-2004, 05:55 PM
I have been wondering about that myself, but my perception is that he is serving and volleying since he has been making too many unforced errors from the baseline. I guess the windy conditions are affecting him from getting his rhythm. Same for Davydenko. This match is pretty much an error-fest.

LCeh
08-16-2004, 05:56 PM

No matter what the reasons are, this is a shameful display from Roger as the #1 player in the world. You dont serve for a match and lose the second set the way he did. What's wrong with him?

Yes, the coordinates of the channel, the two you found are on 12110 or something like that, the one you need is on 11954.

I can't set the coordinates with my remote control and I still can't find the channels. The decoder set all channels when first installed it and I can't seem to manualy overwrite it.

Thanks Raquel for the updates. I just dont think it bodes well for the #1 to be losing serve numerous times when serving for a set or a match. He did that in Toronto also against I think both Arazi and Solderling. That's not good.

asotgod
08-16-2004, 06:14 PM
Yeah yanchr. He can keep doing that or else his major opponents will start getting confident. He needs to be able to serve out a set or a match effectively, no matter what. I guess he needs to calm down more and find a central point between going for his shots and making sure they are played into the court.

Raquel
08-16-2004, 06:14 PM

15-0 ??

nd he will raise his game for sure!
its always difficult first round matches....even if ur #1 in the world!!!!

Keep your serve and confirm your double Break!

asotgod
08-16-2004, 06:18 PM
calimero, I understand all of that and that Davydenko is a tough competitor. Nevertheless, it is not good for a #1 to keep losing serve when serving for a set, or like today, a match. It's not all about the rhythm and the court. If he could get himself to a position of serving for a set or a match, he must learn to serve it out. Whatsoever, he needs to improve that, he needs to.

Raquel
08-16-2004, 06:18 PM
Roger *4-1

0-15 - Long rally, Roger nets a backhand

asotgod
08-16-2004, 06:22 PM
The good part of this match is that Roger is serving and volleying a lot. That will be necessary in other matches as well as the U.S Open. He sometimes get too caught up in baseline rallies or too comfortable in his abilities to rally that he forgets to come to the net to finish up points or make returning difficult for his opponents. When opponents see him serve and volleying, they cannot just take full swings at returns. Hence, he makes them guess what he is up to.

Even though I saw half of the match (had to go at 5:5 in the second)
I still apreciated to reread the scores here.

Well me too was disapointed that he didn't finish in two. But loosing that game just showed that Roger is no Robot after all - and I belive he was much more nervous than he approves to be. Only shows how much he want a medal (preferably the dgolden one) here.

Keep going Roger!!

Crap, the German "tennis"-channel is showing a recording of Ferrero-Fish. Hopefully they will show Federer later on.

I hear that Brovo is showing tennis in the morning but everytime I switch to bravo i see Table Tennis LOL... Maybe I am just picking the wrong times to switch to that channel... lol

by mornings i think they mean at like 4am because whenever i wakeup, they are just wrapping up the matches

Anybody have live coverage for Rogi's match today? Any live update on the score will be greatly appreciated.

Sorry, not here at least. We have volleyball, sailing, badminton and judo on right now, but no tennis at all. Even when the BBC do go to it, I think it will be the main court, and not court one.

Jtipson you keep bringing me bad news :p

Sigh, I guess I will have to count on that lousy nbc scoreboard.

Do I? My apologies! The NBC scoreboard was completely bananas last time I looked at it, it had Roger, Tomas and a woman playing in the match :(

The nbc board is messed up but swap the lady for Federer and the scores are just ok

This match seems to be an error fest. The W-UE ratio is 6-9 for Rogi and 3-15 for Thomas.

ytben,

much better than yesterday. Almost every match seems to be on the negative. Maybe the Athenians cannot differentiate between a forced and an unforced error.

We have Venus Williams on in the UK so I can't give updates today :sad:

Hopefully, he's playing well. Hopp Rogi!

ytben
08-17-2004, 03:48 PM
:lol: yeah that may be it. I originally thought the error fest is because of the wind

Rogi got the first set 6-4 :D :D
One more set to go Rogi and please no third set today please

Raquel :hug: We're on the same boat today. I'm really mad, my cable have 6 channels for Olympics. Three are empty right now showing nothing but the schedule :mad: They can use one of those to show some tennis.

Crap is the word, esp since poor Juanqui lost... :sad: :sad: I wanted him to end up on the podium, Marat too... :sad:

OK, Rogi, easy 2nd set today, OK?

GO, ROGI!!! OPA!!!! ;) ;)

ytben,

It's true the wind and the surface itself are factors, but I think it's a combination of forced and unforced errors, unlike it's stated on the Olympic website.

:sad: :sad: :sad: Me too RF, I was so happy when both Juanqui and Marat won their first match easily. Thought they have pretty good chances in this tournament.

1 all. Let's break him now Rogi! Sending +++++++++++++++++++++ vibes to Rogi.

Its so sad that it's this challenging to get live updated scores. I uses Athens2004.com and ITF's website and they both are inaccurate and slow as hell. We would never had this problem getting scores for a GS. This is supposed to be the great Olympics.

Juan Carlos Ferrero lost because of lack of confidence, but based on his game, I think he can be a threat at the U.S Open. Marat is just a headcase. I am so disappointed in him. You cant have that much talent just to not be able to put it to use rightly. He gives up too easily. Laundgren has a lot of work to do in the next six months, or it will be getting close to over for Safin. Pretty dismal performance.

Exactly my lady ;) This is really pathetic considering this is Olympics.
