I will miss 7. Loved the app and 2 channels. I worry about 9. I don't have foxtel so if they pass some if it on, then I will be in trouble.
I agree. For all the flack 7 get during the Olympics ( and I assume Comm Games coming up) they at least have all 3 channels going if they can

Casey just retired.

great career in the end. Of course, had that amazing run into the 4th round(?) at the AO singles but will be best remembered as Ash's partner in the doubles and making all those grand slams finals. Great timing as they seemed to be going downhill in recent months. Good call by someone on this board when Casey didn't do IW/Miami and Ash were with Coco.

Well done Casey, very solid career. Had some injures early in her career and copped some criticism re her weight IIRC but she battled on and did very well in the end.

The big question is, what on earth is Seven going to do with the rights next summer with a couple of tests being played during January as well as the BBL, Aus Open may get shafted next year.

Well Done on Casey's career, obviously that run in 2008 in Melbourne will be my biggest memory.

Makes sense why Nine swooped on the broadcasting rights of the tennis after losing the rights to the cricket.

Essentially, it's a straight swap of sports.
I think it was the other way around, 9 wanted the tennis and were happy to off load the cricket.

Well done Casey on a pretty solid career, shame she had a lot of injuries.

Not sure about Ch9 and them taking over the rights. At least I won't have to put up with Ch Basil. I wonder who will get a commentating gig. I hope Jelena Dokic does and maybe Casey can have a go.

Not again ! let a younger player take the spot
It's a small tournament in doubles. Hardly taking any young players spot when you still have 40 year olds at the top of the rankings! He's there to support alex in his development. No issues for me.

Fair enough. Tennis is one of those sports that is hard to give up and honestly playing on the doubles tour in a small tournament wont stop anyone from developing or progressing. I see this more as a benefit to de minaur.
