NBC Wimbledon Coverage

Postby Moder » Fri Jul 04, 2008 7:25 am

I am disgusted with NBC's coverage of the Wimbledon 2008 Semi Final match between Federer and Safin.

As an eastern time zone US resident I got up eagerly on July 4th to see some live tennis on ESPN only to find out it was being 'embargoed' (their word) to a tape-dalayed match at Noon on NBC. To me this is the type of thing that holds tennis back. Serious fans are a put on the back burner so that the large company can make even more money off the casual fan.

I decided to send NBC an email: nbcsports@nbcuni.com :x

Maybe 100 more might get their attention...


Sorry for the rant! This probably isn't even in the right section of the forum.

ESPN Classic is reshowing the Men's Wimbledon Federer vs. Nadal final this weekend for those interested. My time zone has it on Sunday, Aug 24, at 3pm eastern. They have a full 5 hours of coverage so it looks like they intend to show the entire match.


and yes, I realize the irony of replying to my own rant message of tennis coverage for extra tennis coverage... Better too much than not enough!

Does everyone thing Wimbledon is the best tennis tournament? I've always thought the Wimbledon is the top tennis tournament and that it's the one that all the players really want to win. Is this just because I'm English or is it true?

Yes, Wimbledon is he the oldest tournament or games of modern world, older than the olympic.
it started in 1877. just thought that ... 132 years old.. this is a dream of every tennis player to win wimbledon title...
but now a days Australian open has made his marks on tennis lovers heart. i have seen more exiting matches in Australian open
than any other tournament since last three years....
