Default Live Scoring Subscription??

I'm taking a poll...how much would you be willing to pay for a Live Scoring subscription for ATP and Challenger level events? The quality would be similar to the quality delivered at the Pacific Life tournament (that is currently underway)?

I’m not particularly impressed with the tournament site as a whole (Pacific Life Open) – the scoreboard itself is quite average compared to others – particularly those on Grand Slam sites.
I’d perhaps consider subscribing to a service which included a lot more than just a scoreboard – I did subscribe to Wimbledon Plus last year but I was looking for specific info.
The bottom line for me… a scoreboard doesn’t = good coverage. Therefore a scoreboard alone isn’t worth paying for.

nothing, why do the GS do have live scoreboards for free and should start charging (via the ATP)! Because these are the events that most people actually follow... Besides if I could pay 400$ a year, I would invest in sports channels on the cable and watch them on TV rather than follow the scores online

that DC scoreboard was fine most of the time..but sometimes its like 40-15 then next thing is game over 30-30 in next one...and the Serve speed didnt match..like Player A serving..it would say Player B serving from last game.

i think the indian wells scoreboard is great, absolutely no problems with it whatsoever. i'd happily pay $400+ for tournaments to have this sort of a scoreboard. i don't think we should have to but i would definitely pay it. there's nothing worse than having serious money on a match and not having live scores

IMO the indian wells scorboard does the job. these scoreboards , as a lot of you know are often used in nth american tournaments. they should be at every god damn tournament!!!

it is pathetic to say the least that a so called high profile sport such as tennis most of the time have a void when it comes to match statistics. and the tennis admin wonder why golf has greater popularity.

golfing fans world wide get to see tournaments week in week out. but tennis fans have to scrounge a round for scraps of info here and there and try and figure out what happened in a match. the livescore forums here are a classic example , people following matches via game by game scoreboards , guessing who is serving. it seems that a lot of the time no one in the world has the match broadcast.

could go on and on... the sad fact is if you want regular reliable match stats at the moment you are dreaming.

i would subscribe to a service (with match stats) as the itf/atp/wta are a hopeless bunch that cant organise one themselves.

Why do I need to pay if there's tons of fans who give lives scores AND match updates for free in the tournament forums here?

i'm not arguing that the dc scoreboard has it problems but i'm saying a sb with stats, point by point scores and ball placement would be nice especially for the smaller tourneys were we have nothing
