The Australian Open Vault!! (Free matches of the AO online since 1998!!)
 
This is the best thing ever. :cool: Surprised there was no thread about it.

A lot of matches online since 1998, it has the 2009 Nadal vs Verdasco, the 2005 Federer vs Safin, and even the long 2003 Roddick vs El Aynaoui!! (along with many, many more!)

Here's the link: http://vault.australianopentv.com/

The other Slams need to catch up soon with the AO's doings or the Aussie Open will have become the best Grand Slam soon :worship:

They are the best slam, fan-wise, I think. They offered live streaming of all of the qualifying draw matches earlier this year, and I remember some people saying they also were streaming the wildcard playoffs this past week. I like being able to watch the juniors and doubles matches on their video streaming service too, looks like ESPN3 will air the juniors finals, I don't think you can watch the juniors finals in any of the other slams. RG is almost impossible to get any of the outside courts, AO has I think eight streamed live. GOAT slam :rocker2:

That's a very good feature. No question Australia gets alot of things right. More than any of the other 4. It's close between Australia and the US Open which is the best run slam.;)

The page works in Chrome but not Firefox for me.

This is great but I'm so cut it doesn't go back just one more year!

I want to see Moya v Sampras (1997 final) and 16 year old Hingis.

Yanks can't even afford a roof over AA stadium and several finals have been postponed in the recent years.

Yes I know, the USTA and the US Open in many ways is a complete joke.

you are right here... the AO is leading the way as far as access for all goes... the camera stream for internet on qualifying court 1 started to truly display the quallies as the more than credible tournament that it is... anyone that has been to any quallies of any GS know the quality present...

not only this, but last year match highlights from all televised aussie open series (brisbane, sydney, hobart) matches going straight to youtube for internet consumption is also leading the way...

but, you really have to wonder how far the USTA has their head up their own arse... how deep is it really... i mean, Rod laver Arena was built for the 1988 AO... 1988 ffs... how much time does a yank need to cop on... but no, 10 years is not nearly enough... and, as it result it goes like: 'oh my god you're so right... wow.. yeah... let's build it... the biggest tennis stadium ever... that's ahhsum... where do i sign... this is gonna be soooo ahhsum...'

works in Safari for me (PC version). I will try Safari on a Mac tomorrow at work.

Given how much bandwidth this would consume and what that would cost me, I'll have to watch these at work anyways :p

Hope they don't mind :angel:
