It's so annoying. Why is ATP or the guys who run their website unable to guarantee a reliable scoreboard for their tournaments. This is TMS Indian Wells and not some Future in the middle of nowhere. I cannot remember how long this scoreboard struggle is even going on. They should just sack these idiots and employ some competent guys. If I suck at my job, I get fired as well...:rolleyes:

Just look at Dallas Challenger for example. They offered even livestream in a brillant way. There has to be sth. wrong for sure.

Yes, it is bloody annoying. For example my net connection is too slow for streams, I need a silly livescore.

Bunch of twats.

I think atp needs the tournament site provide the feed of live score and if they didn't get it, they didn't.

I have problem with the organisers of Indian Wells. The volunteers there are doing excellent job to make the tournament wonderful for visitors there but those with the power to run the tournament, those sitting in airconditioning offices and making the decisions are just terrible. Just like Mr. Disney.

I'll tell you what is happening.

Scoreboard operators at Indian Wells are deliberately holding back the scores for their own financial gain. For example, you notice the scoreboard always stops at break point or at 0-30........the scoreboard operators at this point clean up the markets on betfair as they know the score before anyone else and thus have a big advantage over other gamblers. This happens alot on outside courts which has no cameras. I would bet the people working the scoreboards are earning a fortune.

Hope this helps.
