    I just looked at the weather radar I guarantee the match won’t be starting at 7, and might not start today.

  2. So happy I thought I would have a quick look at TVTonight to see if anything I have missed and I would have missed this news if I hadn’t looked. Thank you very much for the update David. I appreciate it !

  3. Great news. I was waiting for her quarter final last night and happened to put on the radio to find out she had already won.
    But I did see a tweet from sbs saying they couldn’t show her game because they wern’t allowed to broadcast from the court she was playing on.
    Anyway go Ash!

    I don’t know whether to cheer SBS broadcasting the semi, or castigate them for not broadcasting the quarter and ’16 which were also played during primetime.

    Ash is now the 17/10 favourite to win the whole damn thing.

      As far as I’m aware SBS bought the rights for the main PC court. Most of Barty’s matches have been on the secondary stadium or outside courts meaning they’d have to buy additional matches to show her. Plus they’d have to mess with another channels schedule to show it unless they went for On Demand only.

      It’s all a bit messy.
