:woohoo:

finally coverage begins on the 12th which is the Sunday, where previously they started in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

I don't get the guide - anyone know what time Sunday & Monday? Will they be doing this for Miami as well?

A whole (hopefully!) TWO days extra :smoke:

Thank you! :hug:

I was actually looking to edit my post as I saw in the epg that a generous 3 hours of highlights was scheduled for Sunday :rolleyes: At least they give us 8 hours Monday night :)

Then it's back to normal for Miami, missing the first couple of rounds http://img2.menstennisforums.com/500/thumbs/angry.gif (http://www.menstennisforums.com/photos/showphoto.php?photo=20806)
I love the feed we get, & that's their schedule so... just don't see why they can't begin two days earlier :shrug:

it's not so surprising they don't usually show round one since there are 32 seeds and they all get byes.

I'm am looking forward to the masters series returning although i prefer the european events because they start at around 7pm in Australia so we get primetime tennis :bounce:

Indian Wells splits the 2nd round matches (where the seeds come into it) over Saturday & Sunday, & our coverage always begins with the 3rd round matches (except of course this year).

Miami is worse - 2nd round is split over the Friday & Saturday, 3rd round split over Sunday & Monday. As our coverage will as usual be starting with Monday's play, we miss the entire 2nd round and half the third. So in 2004, I missed both of Federer's matches, last year, was lucky with the scheduling in that he played his third round match on Monday. I would guess it's a money issue.

According to another thread, IW is giving earlier coverage this year thanks to Murray...

Well we've got a killer of a day Tuesday, with highlights from 9pm Monday to 5am then it's live till 6pm!
