Dear Fox Sports Net
I have some feedback - you and your affiliate here in the New York City area, MSG
, are doing a terrible job of covering the Pacific Life Open
, one of the biggest tournaments in tennis outside of the four Grand Slams
During yesterday's now classic match
between Rafael Nadal
and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
, your programmers made the very asinine decision to stop coverage after the end of the second set. Your broadcasters didn't provide any type of segue - you just never returned to the match. I would relate the feeling to what it must be like to get a big present, open it up, and find nothing inside.
And, to rub salt in the wound, you started the evening's coverage of the tournament late because the game before ran over! Could you not have done the same for the tennis match earlier in the day?
I was accepting of the fuzzy quality of your telecasts and the way you tease viewers with 2-hour blocks (that's maybe
one set of a Nadal
match) of coverage, but cutting out an entire set of a now classic match with no explanation is unacceptable and a slap in the face to tennis fans and potentially new viewers for your channel. I hate to see what you have in store for next week's Miami Masters
Please do all tennis fans a favor and give up your pursuit of tennis. Actions always speak louder than words.
