Super Sports relays in Singapore are devoid of any imagination.
The Roland Garros coverage, for instance, has been occasionally marked by matches between top players being sidelined for lower-rung duels.
When live matches are on, they show recorded matches. When a match between Federer and Wawrinka is under way, they telecast the Tsonga-Nishikori duel. This is not to take away anything from the latter match, a thrilling five-setter, with the remarkable fightback from Nishikori not enough to take him through.
A live doubles encounter is more fun than an old singles match, particularly from the last-eight stage.
For Grand Slam events at least they can use a few channels for the telecast. What is the point in hosting WTA finals when major international events are messed up?
