Tennis Coverage

Where to start - currently watching Federer vs Berdych. First set over then a ton of ads and coverage returns and we have missed 3 serves!!!
Really not what I'd call LIVE coverage. Can you please get your act together. This is happening all the time now & is disgusting & absolutely frustrating for avid fans. You've been getting away with it for a few years now. Please stop it!
Please can the 'hourglass' side shots - they don't show anything but the ball going backwards & forwards - practically useless
Now Federer is serving and someone is interviewing a jockey!!! So rude!!!
The constant gambling ads really denigrate the sport you are televising. Gambling is a huge social problem and due to absolute greed you are doing your best to normalise it. I only hope that you will see the light very soon or the government is lobbied to step in to stamp out gambling ads.
To be continued....

Tennis coverage

Why do you let the ads run too long? We continually miss the first one two points in a game.

The coverage is bad, some commentary is pointless, the camera work is amateurish.

Learn how to produce good tennis coverage - watch what the BBC does for Wimbledon.

Television coverage

Terrible coverage. Constant switching of channels and trying to cover all tournaments on one channel as was the case today. Don't bid for the tennis if you can't provide proper resources.

I hate to think what a mess you will make of the Commonwealth Games.

Australian Open Coverage

Can the volume of court side microphone be reduced so that the excessive grunting is not heard.
It is ridiculous the noise that is made and most people I know dislike the grunting.
Come on 7 reduce the noise markedly

Australian Open Coverage

The Australian Open coverage provided by Channel 7 to New Zealand Sky Sports 3 is poor. Live matches are taking place and yet viewers are being shown whole matches, from the beginning, which are either already finished or stil in progress. Furthermore, the commentators present the match as if it is happening live and underestimate the TV viewing audience's capacity to track results online - something that is common practice. Why are paying viewers being robbed of watching live matches?
