    Sometimes the minor matches are more entertaining in the early rounds. Barring an upset, watching the top seeds not have to try too hard to beat a qualifier can be a bit boring.

    No Jim Courier as per the Australian Open so that is a bonus in itself.

    Same coverage as the last two years which is great for Perth as in the past we have to wait ’till 11.30 to watch Wimbledon. Hoping it’s the last year we see it in SD.

    @catherine
    You really want to watch Australia get thrashed in both events with England winning 5-0 and Australia not making it past the third round.

    Wimbledon and the Ashes. Not much sleep in July. Love it and cannot wait.

    @Armchair Analyst
    Well said!! Totally agree with you 100%

  6. Armchair Analyst June 13, 2013 at 2:52 pm -

    I really dont mind sport not in HD. Yes idealy it would be great if it was in HD and yes it is great when it is, however as long as it is Live around the nation on either of the channels is better then delayed coverage, especially for such a big event like Wimbledon. HD coverage of sport will happen but only when the analogue signal gets shut off around the nation.

    Foxtel’s coverage is looking rather redundant now that Seven is able to use 72. Foxtel will be offering only minor matches and extended highlights during the day for pensioners.

    i happy it on free airtv !!!!!!!!! good on you 7

    @jimbo k – no, great use of a digital channel would be to broadcast the tennis in HD instead of blokes fixing up trash or repeats of Family Guy.

    I’ll be watching Le Tour in HD instead.

  10. jimbo k June 13, 2013 at 9:56 am -

    great usage of the digital channel. I am happy it is done this way. Showing it live, rather than on delay.

  11. bill June 13, 2013 at 9:30 am -

    Don’t you love it, a week and half of HD coverage on Fox and then the finals in SD on Seven

    Another year of Wimbledon in glorious SD.
