London 2012 Olympics: The Other Players

Quote

Why are BBC Online not showing Court 1 or 2 with the better matches on.Seems weird that they are showing CC and Court 18  confused

I thought that earlier, very strange. Still, Djoko finished now on Court 1, Heather Watson scheduled next on Court 18

or maybe not - all play finished it seems

Yeah weird they never showed Djoko when he was in a close game for a while on C1

For some reason they showed less tennis on the Olympic channels today than yesterday - and yet there were a few channels with nothing showing for hours which could've been used for tennis. Yesterday matches from Centre, Court 1, and Court 2 were on tv. Shame they didn't do that today as I would've liked to have seen Ferrer and Novak's matches.

Yes found the BBC livestream myself.  Guess I'm just going to have to go with livestreams unless I can get the red button to work.



Have u solved problem? U will need to re-install I think.

Anyone else noticed some almost half-hearted performances from some of the tennis players?

Yes I've noticed that too. Have to say that I'm struggling to really get into the event, which wasn't the case in Beijing.

It must seem strange for them to come back to Wimbledon after only 3 weeks. It would probably have been better for it to have been on hard courts to give it the feel of being a new and separate event, but of course it would have been a waste of money to build new courts just for the Olympics. Vera Zvonareva commented about how it doesn't feel like they're in the Olympics because of the Village being so far away. It's not like they can really go to any other events to watch, unless they want to be travelling for nearly an hour each way, and likewise other athletes can't really come to see the tennis either.

But Andy does seem to be taking it seriously, and if the top players progress in the event I'm sure things will liven up towards the end of the week.

Robson (6&4) and Watson (2&2) both into R2. Smile

Four Brits in R2 then. Baltcha in action now, on serve against Ivanovic.

Also, how is the Dubs seeding done?! Djokovic and Troicki seeded 8th whilst Fleming and Hutchins weren't seeded at all.  Should be done on Doubles rankings but for some reason they've just made them up on the spot. Disgraceful.

They have been showing the tennis on three or four different channels. On Sky the Olympic channels start at 450 there are over 25 channels showing different sports. On freeview they start at 150 to 174 I saw Delpotro was on today aslo Roddick,and Isner so there were quite a few different matches on today. You just have to keep flicking through the channels. And of course you have the red button.
