I hope eurosport show some competitive matches in the early rounds. The thought of watching Federer, Nadal and Coria crushing and humiliating poor ol' Sela, Burgsy and Carlsen respectively doesn't really excite me. :p

Grosjean vs Monaco could be a good one.

Naah...don´t forget that cycling will be shown from 3pm-5:15pm. Looove cycling...ohaaa! So probably only one set of Roger, which is btw enough for a first round Fed match.

Eurosport is a cheap channel which allows a lot of people to see tennis, because if nor for ES I wouldn't be able to see any tennis at all!
They are doing a great job anyway (ES Int. that is), and people who are not spoiled with tennis coverage can appreciate it, really! ;)

Eve83

Stop complaining so much people, you don´t want to get gastric ulcers just because Eurosport didn´t show your fave playing;)

Up to 10 hours coverage/day...how do you think fans of other sports will feel?

JustmeUK
05-23-2005, 01:12 PM
actually it doesn't really bother me :).. however if I am listing things I hate about ES coverage it has to be the parts of matches as mentioned and how they interleave Women's matches in. that is even more of a turnoff! (even if Hantuchova is so delectable sometimes!)

As I prefer WTA over ATP;)...hehe

Well, I tell you what they´re going to show tomorrow (I have the eurosport sixth sense):

Henin-Hardenne vs. Martinez
Safin vs. Sluiter
Agassi vs. Nieminen (maybe one set?)
Sharapova vs. Linetskaya
....if court 2 has a cam: Ivanovic vs. Foretz
and of course Roddick vs. Tsonga

If there´s enough time at the end: Mauresmo vs. Dominikovic taped

;)

Lady
05-23-2005, 09:53 PM
I think that would choose Mauresmo over Roddick
(no court 2 at all)
And they will choose Agassi over Marat, I'm afraid (choosing to show a complete Agassi match, they are obsessed with him)

Spunky, is it Ian Somehhalder (or something like this :o ) in your avatar?

I prefer the coverage of Wimbledon and Us open to the French Open on Eurosport. On bbc you can chose which court you want which is great!

I don't want it to be Agassi's last Rg but he is getting on a bit. I hope he can go out with a bang!

Predictable - the WTA channel was bound to show Henin even though she's been featured in full already. :rolleyes:

I don't know why I harboured even the slightest hope of seeing Coria - and I particularly wanted to get a look at this young guy he's playing having never seen him before - but of course it wasn't going to happen.

Roll on Wimby and the USO - not that I prefer them, but I have interactive :D

Yes me too, i woke up expecting to see djokovic :(

oh they just announced there is important giro (so we miss 3 hours coverage). from 2.30 cet to 5.30.
fucking wankers, whenever we get chance to see atp they are off covering the cycling.

how much are we gonna miss 2moro? 5 hours? :eek:

They didn't show Sharapova's 1st match full, no?
I don't really know, I think they showed Agassi then.

If the day starts with the mens match and womens match at the same time, their strategy always is to show womens match (because it's supposed to be shorter), and then switch to mens match!
And this will probably work if Justine won't start fooling around! ;)

Off course Guille is making easy job right now! ;)

France 2 website has a pay per view option with the following courts available :

P. CHATRIER

Court 1
Court 2
Court 3
Court 6
Court 7

http://roland-garros.france2.fr/videos/index-fr.php?inc=offres

- 1,69 euros for two hours (one time),
- 3 euros for one day
- 15 euros for one week
- 25 euros for the tournament

It is possible to buy 2 hours by SMS.

Instructions / information are however only in French.

Streaming is OK.

My theory is that the Eurosport Company can only get matches that the French TV are showing because it is Eurosport, and also that the there are certain courts which British commentators are allowed to cover.

Eurosport have to decide to commit to 100% coverage or not at all. Every year the first week is interupted with 3 hours or more of cycling during the time when the best matches are on, which is extremely annoying for tennis fans. I have a motorised dish and can get France 2 when ES goes AWOL, but for viewers without any options vent your annoyance and frustrations by email or text. Perhaps if enough people do that they will shift cycling to ES 2 in future. Let's hope so. :mad:

What are you talking about Vaiva? ;) The Sesil/Venus match could be one of the biggest grand slam upsets in women's tennis history. :eek:

because there is live tennis on, it would be pathetic to show a replay when they can show live coverage

Vaiva, I understand Venus played badly. But maybe Sesil's great mobility and defense made her do it. ;)

Quite - and for the most part, I haven't.

This year I seem to have spent far more time watching live scores on my computer than watching tennis, which is rather a shame considering clay is my favourite surface and these two weeks ought to be the highlight of my tennis-viewing year. Give or take some dodgy weekend scheduling, I enjoyed my clay court Masters coverage infinitely more (Sky, all is forgiven).

I just hope that next year they can sort something out with ES2 so that at least we don't lose the primetime mid-afternoon matches for the whole of the first week when there is so much of interest happening.

So stupid. Although I whine about Giro as well, Eurosport has commitments and must fulfil them. Otherwise you migh have no tennis at all :p

They've shown some of Rafa after live matches. Better than nothing. I'm grateful at least for that bit. As for Dave, last time I checked, Eurosport did not have a crystal ball to predict the duration of matches. Dave was moved to court 3 because previous matches took longer than expected on the original court, and court 3 had no Eurosport cameras, tough shit. Deal with it.

If it is so unbearable for you, find a career with Eurosport and make changes happen. Until then :baby:

I have no choice too, that's why I don't complain. I was very upset that they couldn't show Rafa-Richard, but there's nothing they can do.
I just accept it!

You dont complain because they have shown matches you like (when others have been moaning about the wta bumrush, you have been loving it). You are one of the lucky ones who gets what they like from euro.

I love only Justine's matches. I prefer ATP over others.
I don't complain because I understand ES's situation.

If you have freeview, the interactive service does not work today, but it will for all the other days. That could be the reason why you can't get the RG interactive service.

There is going to be precious little live tennis on ES sunday so go to BBC interactive and France 2 on astra 1 if you want to watch some men's tennis. ES favour shorter wta matches because it fits in well with their fragmented coverage. :rolleyes:

Saturday under 2 hours of men's tennis compared to over 5 hours of women's tennis. :( This cannot continue otherwise ES should be stripped of RG coverage, and given to a creditable sports channel such as Sky which has interactive service.

With Pierce, Henin-Hardenne, Davenport and the unavoidable Sharapova they can even beat yesterday's record ;)

I'm in the UK so I'm watching British Eurosport - I don't know if it's the same for all countries. I'm guessing they'll show whatever they deem to be the "big" match. It should be Grosjean-Nadal, but if Sharapova is playing at the same time as they are, I wouldn't feel too confident about them making the sane (quieter) choice.

Sharapova... if only! It looks like Federer and Moya play at the same time :( . Hmm... then for whom Eurosport (I think their translations're the same in all european countries... at least the most of trainslations) will give the priority?.. Maybe Rafa is more interesting than Roger?.. I wish...
