.... In that colour scheme?

Lambzig Sun 27-Jan-13 09:32:57

YANBU, I totally agree, its almost unwatchable.

Celticlassie Sun 27-Jan-13 09:33:57


If that's not tennis... what the hell is? grin

DreamsTurnToGoldDust Sun 27-Jan-13 09:34:30

grin it looks as though its being held in a community leisure centre from the 80s.

Unless it's in all white and on the lush green grass of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club then it isn't proper tennis. Harrumphs like a horse

It's brilliant! Just enjoy the fabulous talent and ignore the colours.

BooksandaCuppa Sun 27-Jan-13 09:44:55

I knew that's what you were going to say!!

Of course it's proper tennis. But they do look vair scruffy.

Sparklingbrook Sun 27-Jan-13 09:48:03

Can't watch. The trainer squeaking is setting my teeth on edge. grin

seeker Sun 27-Jan-13 09:50:42

And those squeaky shoes!!!<shudder>

Sparklingbrook Sun 27-Jan-13 09:51:15

YY seeker stop the squeaking!!

slartybartfast Sun 27-Jan-13 09:51:17

oh i agree, its just not tennis

Sparklingbrook Sun 27-Jan-13 09:52:13

Anyone seen cricket lately? That's not cricket either. Not a cricket white in sight. angry

MrsDoomsPatterson Sun 27-Jan-13 09:54:00

The officials look like they work for easy jet.

And where the chuff is the Robinson's?

EuroShagmore Sun 27-Jan-13 09:54:29

The squeaking is very annoying.

Startail Sun 27-Jan-13 09:58:25

The mouse powered trainers are very annoying, and black clothes against the black backdrop is horrid.

Floralnomad Sun 27-Jan-13 09:58:35

You get used to it , have you lot not been watching it for the last two weeks ?

MrsDoomsPatterson Sun 27-Jan-13 10:01:44

Yes, I have. Squeaking not bothering me. Looking forward to Wta starting tomo!

SnakePlisskensMum Sun 27-Jan-13 10:12:43

The squeaking shoes are awful but at least there's no Azarenka style screaming!

Floralnomad Sun 27-Jan-13 10:14:20

The only problem with the tennis is that the cricket is on the other side , I'm having to watch that on Sky go at the same time !

Some observations from a non-tenniser.....

1. That blueness is hard on the eyes.
2. The squeeking is setting my teeth on edge, surely something could be done to stop it.
3. Their feet are the size of canoes.

Sparklingbrook Sun 27-Jan-13 10:19:11

Yes Taggie good points.

From another non tenniser-

1. It is too blue.
2. It is too squeaky.
3. It goes on too long.

Sparklingbrook Sun 27-Jan-13 10:21:02

And I have gone right off Andrew Castle since his 'when sorry isn't enough' advert. angry

Vibration damper? confused

TaggieCampbellBlack Sun 27-Jan-13 10:23:51

4. Their nasty nylon outfits are virtually identical. It's very hard to work out whos who.

Floralnomad Sun 27-Jan-13 10:36:20

Murray has black shoes , Djokovic has white , although you don't see much tennis if you're watching their feet.

Startail Sun 27-Jan-13 10:44:03

I wish they'd make them wear different colours.
