Angry tennis fans have given Channel Nine a report of the Australian Open a day after day.
The two-week grand slam started in Melbourne on Monday and it was not long before eagles with eyes blinked about the new house of tennis after Channel Nine signed a $ 350 million six-year deal for broadcasting rights that put an end to Channel Seven & # 39; s four-decade reign.
From unknown commentators and ignorant presenters to the standard of comment and image quality, viewers found a lot to complain about.
A mix of current and former tennis stars and Channel Nine presenters headlines the Australian Open coverage of the network, which came under attack on Day 1 of the game
& Channel; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & # 39; Channel 9 & # 39; s coverage of the tennis axis is as good as expected Tsitsipas game as he is Greek, a frustrated fan tweette.
Another addition: Terrible reporting & nowhere near the excellent standard viewers who are accustomed to channel 7. Do the world a favor, channel 9 and go back to what you are good at in the Big Bang theory! & # 39;
Viewers were not happy that they could not see Bernard Tomic (photo) in action
The criticism continued in the first night of the game when Australian Bernard Tomic's showdown against Marin Cilic's sixth seed was kicked off in favor of defending champion Caroline Wozniacki's straight sets against Belgian Alison van Uytvanck.
& # 39; How much I want to see Bernard Tomic lose, I think it's great Channel 9 does not show the game at all, & # 39; added a tweet.
Fans also complained about the commentators, despite fan favorites Jim Courier and Todd Woodbridge who made the switch from Seven.

& # 39; Who does comment for Duckworth against Nadal match? South African accent? & # 39; tweeted earlier in the afternoon.
Another addition: "It could probably do without the minute-long monologue at the end of every commercial break & # 39 ;.
In case you're wondering, the South African commented on the loss of Australian James Duckworth against world number 2 Rafael Nadal was former player Wayne Ferreira, a two-time Australian Open semi-finalist.
Even experienced commentators Courier and Woodbridge came under fire, with one fan accusing the two of drowning the energy and entertainment of the game.
& # 39; Show players and Channel Nine viewers some respect and STILL PLEASE when the point is played, & # 39; they said.
& # 39; You do not have to be the entertainers here! Give the players and the audience some space … please! & # 39;
It did not take long before fans expressed their anger at Channel Nine's Australian Open coverage
But not everyone was critical about the coverage of Nine.
Last year channel 7 paid us to view every job and every action of the Australian Open. At 9 Now free, you can see every court live … FREE. Are not we glad that the cricket and tennis networks have traded ?, "tweeted a man.
Another addition: & # 39; This year Big Bash quickly became Big Bore this year. At least the Ausopen has started! & # 39;
From the unknown commentators and ignorant presenters to the standard of comment and image quality (pictured), viewers enough to complain about
