Nine Tennis Coverage


#267

will be interesting to see what graphics Nine use for the leas up tournaments. Seven used to use the world feed, Tennis Australia graphics and then their own for the Australian Open. I wonder if Nine will follow suit or start with their own look from the first tournament.


#268

So they can’t even send anyone to Perth? That’s piss poor form. From the studio in Melbs.

You would think that Launching the tennis on Nine, it would be hosted from Perth. :man_facepalming:


#269

Does it really make a difference? Either way they’re in a studio.


#270

Caps:



#271

Not used to this at all but it will take time to adjust.


#272

It looks as though Clint Stanaway is in Melb to produce the HOpman Cup. But what about Bec Maddern? Will she do the coverage from Melb or in Perth?


#273

The shitty Sunday footy show set? At least use a tight shot of the news set with an animated background, etc.

They could’ve even used the STW news set (it’s about two streets away from Perth Arena).


#274


Used a megawall on the screen. Never seen that before on Nine’s tennis.


#275

“After the Tennis”:


#276

Nine are using Tennis Australia graphics for their presentation unlike 7


#277

Yep. Any sporting event in this country should not be hosted out of another city. There is talent everywhere, it’s really not a good look.


#278

Please tell me they’re not actually using that old line anywhere!

Networks seem to have adopted the “dates” instead for Q1 promotion now


#279

For example, if you search “Sydney International” on Google Images, Johanna Griggs appears in a couple from 2011, where she was definitely on location.

So Seven used to send even the hosts across the country.

Although Nine’s Wide World of Sports is different, they’ve always utilised those studios for hosts. Just a different approach. Economical? Easier?


#280

No, they didn’t. I was making a joke …


#281

Sorry! :joy: You had quotation marks, so a poor presumption on my part.


#282

How do you capture images


#283

All previous Hoan cup coverage: abc, ten and seven have all been hosted from the venue. God knows wtf nine are doing.


#284

Again, what difference does it make?


#285

Authenticity and quality of coverage. It’s just tacky.


#286

Rubbish. Makes no difference at all. We are watching for the sport, not to see the host for a total of maybe 5 minutes throughout the whole coverage.
