I know sky's contract to cover the TMS Series ends at the end of next year, and from what i can see i doubt they will renew it, is it just me or has the coverage been second rate this year, not showing live matches, cutting the programme short, it looks as if Sky's intrest in Tennis is becomming lets say less and less.

For instance i was p****d off when they did not show The Haas v Nalby match, and i reckon we could be in for the same tonight, the first two matches have taken forever today and i doubt Ginepri and Gaudio will get on before 2100hrs, i really hope they show the match, it should be a good one.

Wat does everyone else think of Sky's coverage??

I know Sky have their problems but in terms of overall coverage we do extremely well compared to a lot of other countries. I’m only basing my opinion on what I’ve read on MTF tho.

*Ljubica*
11-03-2005, 05:58 PM
I agree that Sky's coverage hasn't been as good this year than in previous - but, as athie says, we Brits are still really lucky with our televised tennis when you compare us to the rest of the world.

I know it's been frustrating sometimes but I hope Sky continues to cover the Masters Series. As others have said, it's actually a lot better than anywhere else in the world and think of the alternatives. Eurosport is the only realistic alternative and surely no-one here wants to rely on them for AMS coverage. Terrestrial channels will never cover it.

1) Barry Cowan
2) Commentators
3) Lack of Interactive Coverage for Paris Madrid
4) Cut off Interactive Coverage before end of Play
5) No Live Night Session in American events
6) No Coverage from First weekend of 10 Day Tournaments
7) Tendency to drop Live Coverage if they have too many other Sports
8) Obsessed with a few players
9) Too many replays of Henman rather than showing decent tennis

1) I like Barry Cowan :lol: he seems to like the same players I do.
2) Bill Threlfall is the worst by a mile. They haven't replaced the wonderful Petchey.
3) Can't complain about that, nowhere has it. We're lucky to get coverage at all.
4) Agreed, it is a bit annoying.
5) I suppose, but we get highlights the next day usually.
6) Once again, annoying but can't really complain.
7) Worst of the lot. Especially if its the Semi's or Final of a TMS. Surely they can make room.
8) I'd say fits in with 9. They're mainly obsessed with the Brits, which I suppose is understandable.

I think Sky generally do a good job.
We Brits are very lucky to get very good coverage of all 9 TMS events, not just 1 or 2 matches a day as others.
However as others have said, they're coverage hasn't been as good as previous years. Not showing all of the QF,SF and F at Madrid for example made me :mad:

i think Sky do a great job considering nowhere else gets the kind of coverage we get at times. They can't show Tennis ALL the time it's just unrealistic for them to put it infront of Football and Cricket etc but with likes of Andy, Tim and Greg possibly being in most of the TMS tournies this season they will show alot more coverage than they normally do i feel

Sjengster
02-22-2006, 04:30 PM
Are you really telling me that's the only reason they extended their coverage to include the first weekend? Hey, even if it is though, the result is all that matters. R64 matches available to see at last! I've never liked the way that IW and Miami seem almost half over by the time Sky get round to covering them.

They are starting Indian Wells coverage on Saturday instead of Monday
as they knew Murray wouldn't get a Bye in the First Round

Makes sense but at the end of the day we still get to see 2 more days of tennis. :)
With all the pullouts this year I wouldn't be surprised if Sky didn't show Rotterdam at all next year.

Yes! Not everyone is a lightweight who goes to sleep like a baby at 10pm! I am sure them showing the night matches would be worthwhile.

02-22-2006, 06:59 PM
Well correct me if I'm wrong here, but aren't the commentators at the US Open actually there on site, whereas they're not for the TMS events? That might explain why they can only work the same hours as we do, they're back here - I imagine Bill Threlfall would make even less sense at 3 in the morning than he does in regular daytime hours.

Plus they show highlights of the night's play the next day so it isn't that bad.

Jimnik

I hate highlights. I want to watch the tennis without knowing the final result. If the score is say 6-4 5-5, and there's only 10 minutes until the end of the program, you know who's won the match because they don't have enough time to cover a 3rd set.

Nothing beats full live coverage throughout the night - especially for insomniacs like me.

Yes that's correct I think thay my be on site for Paris and Madrid and for the Davis cup ties. But the rest of the time they are back in the UK.

I think that Sky do a great job but it'a a shame that we won't have Mark Petchey on this year as he is one of the best commentators. Instead we have to have the awful Barry Cowan.

Does the 2nd round of Indian Wells start on Monday? I thought the tournament started on Thursday already.

Sjengster
02-24-2006, 04:30 PM
They tend to mix it up depending on who's playing - the first round with no seeded players starts on the Friday, I believe, then seeded guys start playing over the weekend. The whole draw is onto the R32 by the Monday. I wish they would be more uniform with the scheduling though, it's the same thing with the US Open where the first round is staggered over three days - it's daft, and of course the reckoning comes at the other end of the tournament with the semis and final on consecutive days.

Are we going to miss the end of Hewitt because Henman
will start before he ends??

We missed first set of Agassi last night.

Also why did they not show highlights of Moya v Safin ??
I was wondering the same thing about interractive :shrug: Wonder what has happened?

Jimnik
03-13-2006, 07:03 PM
They never have interactive coverage for IW and Miami. I think it has something to do with the fact that it's a joint ATP and WTA event and they can only cover the men's matches.

Their coverage for these 2 events is, unfortunately, much worse than for the other Masters Series events. Personally, I would love to see the night sessions LIVE and I would love to get interactive coverage but it won't happen :sad:

:yeah: Kudos to Sky Sports for staying with the Hewitt/Scheuttler match to the end, even though Henman/Berdych had started. Good decision.
I agree that the reason there is no interactive for IW this year is because the womens matches which Sky do not cover would create too many long gaps in the coverage to make the service viable. We probably won't see interactive coverage for Miami too for the same reason.
Keep up the good work Sky, you are still the best. :)

Guess that makes sense - though I was convinced they had interractive coverage there last year :confused: My memory is obviously playing tricks on me, but because I always go to the 5 European Masters' I was sure I had seen interractive coverage at more than just the US Open and the two Summer US Masters. Not having the night sessions live doesn't bother me personally because I'm always fast asleep long before midnight :zzz: - but I guess it would be a nice additin to the programming.

And another problem

Sky start Live tennis today at 9pm UK

so their highlights don't start until 7 (Why cant they show them earlier :mad: )

BUT the matches in Indian Wells begin Live at 7

????
So in fact when I thought I would get a rare chance to see Gaudio play live on TV - I won't be able to now because his match will probably be over by 9.00pm :rolleyes:

On screen Guide is now saying LIVE at 7

Simple answer is to Have two Interactive Tennis screens at 7

One is LIVE at 7 and then Highlights during Hingis,then back to live

The second shows last nights highlights while the women are playing
and then LIVE on the second court for men

Simple ???

Way too simple for Sky.

then switch to Roddick and then Federer on Court 1

Nadal will be on too late for Sky

They have NO EXCUSE not to show Court 2
on an interactive Option to see
D Nalbandian (ARG) vs P Srichaphan (THA)
M Ancic (CRO) vs I Ljubicic (CRO)
J Nieminen (FIN) vs M Safin (RUS)

I'm not sure, but I think they don't have interactive in the first two rounds. All in all I like Sky Sports much more than Eurosport. It is one of the good things of living in England. In Chile we had full coverege of Viña and Buenos Aires, and sometimes quarters or semis of a mayor event when a Chilean was playing it. We had ESPN which also showed some random matches, but Sky Sports is by FAR the best, even without interactive.

I hope you're right but wouldn't it make more sense to have interactive for the first few rounds? In the latter stages of the tournament, all the matches will be played on Centre anyway, so they won't need interactive.

I guess, if we compared the coverage to the rest of the world, we are quite lucky here in the UK. But we do pay quite a lot to get these Sky channels so it would be nice if they delivered their promises.

The Interactive service is PERFECT with court sound and NO Commentary

Its very boring watching without commentary, especially because there is no atmosphere often on those courts. Add to that no chance to see replays, its even worse. Some of the commentators are ok, but even the crap ones are better than listening to a plain broadcast with no atmosphere.

Stupid commentators said Volandri had never reached the top 40 :( on the contrary I think Filo has been to like 28? in the world.

I was surprised to see how many negative comments they said about murray though! After the match, they said quite a few :lol: Usually, they cant say anything bad about him or roger federer.

I hope Henman or Tommy win their match quickly, but th likelyhood is of 3 sets of tie-breakers unfortunately.

Overall i think the sky cover is still very good. But i think it is not sky in the decline for tennis. It is the world. Tennis is in decline at the moment.

Looks like we will miss most of Nadal unless Henman is quick

Sky dont have Interactive for night match

Two hours to go and we have still got a set of Safin and all of Henman


safin, please be quick, 15 mins for one game, deuce 8th times.... come on, i want to watch nadal's match.....

Yeah they always close interactive when there is still stuff on the courts they arent covering. Looks like we wont get nadal at all.

What annoys me is that they stopped the interactive coverage. :(

I really wanted to see Almagro v Davydenko.
