So i knw i am not the only person frsutrated with Sky refusing to show night matches, and only doing minor coverage of games not involving the brits! and with the USO coming up i certainly don't want a repeat of last years and now henman v roddick oops no soryr here's some teleshopping mess up.

so i decided to send them a very and i do mean VERY long complaint and i figure the more people who do it the more chance of them actually doing something about it, even if they just put it on interactive at night so we can see it i'm sure it can't interfere with their busy teleshopping schedule so much

if you want to help us out and complain please do so at!

if youre not in the uk feel free to complain too and pretend you are, you know we'd do it for you!

I am extremely pissed that I have to watch Rafa's match via a livescoring portal on the Internet, yes.

My gosh, I wish they'd get their act together; it's not like it's that late here, so they could show the night matches!- I don't need Chris Baily and Peter in a studio to chat after the match- send them home to bed and just put on the live coverage!!

Peter Flemming is irritating.

I mean both he and Chris Bailey take about an hour to explain how someone hits a forehand. They take ages just to finish a sentence and make stupid faces and pause all the time :fiery:

excatly! and i don't see why we can't have it on interactive if we can't get it on normal coverage! and you know we're not gonna get any coverage of rafa/paulo tomorrow coz they're gonna be replaying greg getting his butt kicked by andre (please god let him get his butt kicked) all day! so i'm gonna have to pay someone on here to send me a dvd coz it's 2 of my fave players against each other :sad:

so yes everyone get sending complaints then hopefully we won't have that have that problem during the USO

be happy with that what you have. When Premiere showed the Masters Series they showed us 2 h's per day or even a match went over 3 sets and they finished coverage after 2.

People whinge endlessly about the journeyman ex-pros who make up Sky's commentary team, but if you don't know who Peter Fleming is (one half of one of the greatest doubles teams in history), something must be wrong.

Ah, Bails. Charming fellow, but he has all the insight and erudition of a tsetse fly.

I have a bit of a soft spot for him, though; he's the gormless, parochial face of British tennis, and for some reason I love it. Don't you think he encapsules everything that is so marvellous about Sky TV?

I wouldn't go that far, but I actually don't mind Peter Fleming; he's actually quite entertaining- although he does tend to go a little O.T.T when he's commentating matches.

sjengster you seem to forget the age of alot of people here peter flemming is hardly the most famous player to walk the earth and he's still a shit person to be on there he just babbles about fed, and henman all the time its' annoying and i don't give a damn about the people they have on their when they talk shit i mute it but fact is they SHOULD be showing night games and when it coemsto USO ALL the big matches are at night so we're gonna see none, by senidng emails we're at least trying to make a difference!

Full stops, please. I'm not exactly ancient myself and I know enough about tennis to know who he is; I've said it before and I'll say it again, you don't have to be a famous, all-time great and worldbeater to make a good analyst or presenter. It's not essential, although I admit some of Flembo's wackiness goes a little too far.

Are they not showing the night matches at the US Open this year? They always have done in the past.

well we dunno in previous years they have shown night matches of TMS too and as they're not doing it now we don't know! so at least by emailing we can TRY and make them show them! it can't fucking hurt can it? it's not like threy're gonna get emails and cancel all coverage!

as for fullstops fuck you i'll type how i want!

and i didn't say his ability changed how good an analyst like i said i don't give a damn anout who commentates i actually love the fact that when they do have interactive there is NO commentary it's so much better
