Tennis fans took to social media last night to vent their anger at Seven, which was screening a Nick Kyrgios- Jordan Thompson match from Wimbledon at the same time as Court 1 match between Ash Barty – Saisai Zheng.
Via 7TWO’s “megawall” viewers were forced to swing between both matches intermittently, which may have been the most frustrating solution of all.
Despite progressive score updates, viewers were unable to watch the single match of their choice.
Meanwhile FOX Sports had the Barty game in full.
Update: A Seven spokesperson said: “Nick Kyrgios and Jordan Thompson were tied in the third set of a thrilling contest when Ash walked onto court. We screened as much of Ash’s one-sided game as we could and enabled Foxtel to broadcast it in full.
“The massive audience ratings on 7TWO, which were comparable to a Wimbledon Final, show how engaged Aussies were in the epic five setter between Kyrgios and Thompson.”
