Nine Tennis Coverage


#347

Sam Stosur’s match against Bouzkova started in 2018 and finishes in 2019


#348

Telecast of Brisbane International finished at 1:18AM (AEDT on 1 Jan 2019). Happy New Year!


#349

I don’t know how many times the hosts have referred to Brisbane’s river and how beautiful the city is, but is that all they’ve got? Like a pre written sentence or two script? When returning from ads showing the city. Lame-ish.

Erin molan has done a good job tonight though.

#351


Alternate coverage of the Brisbane International on Show courts so I don’t have to put up with the pop-up ads of Married at First Sight and voiceovers.


#352

Won’t this be directly head to head with the anticipated Federer vs Serena mixed doubles on the main channel?


#353

Yes…

They are two completely different competitions so it can’t be helped unfortunately.


#354

What channel will that be on?


#355

9GO


#356

So they have Serena on the main and the Brisbane International on 9go!? Just want to know what channels to flick.


#357

Correct.


#358

Hopman Cup has been on the main channel in Perth with the exception of 5.30-7.00pm for Hot Seat and News.


#359

Wonder if this was a stipulation in the rights? Seens a bit odd, as Hopman Cup is older and locally iconic to Perth, but historically Brisbane International has rated better.


#360

Seems like it’s a Nine initiative considering they’re doing the same thing for QLD viewers regarding the Brisbane International (at least in the daytime)


#361

Vic regional news set seems to be now used for Hopman cup coverage. Huge improvement.


#362

Any caps? What makes you say this?


#363

Because it was on my television.


#364

Good to see they added something local to the Hopman Cup feed, with a Perth city backdrop now behind Bec.


#365

Yes I see they’ve added a plasma screen to the WWOS / Sunday Footy Show set, featuring the Perth sky line.


#366

Seems kind of counter-intuitive that all of Nine’s flashy promos in recent days were about “Federer vs Serena”…

Yet it’s mixed doubles AND just hit midnight in Sydney and Melbourne :sleeping: Better hope the late share is big in Perth and Brisbane (9pm / 11pm respectively)
