    This may not be a particularly sporty question but recently I saw the ITV advert for the French Open, and while of course focussing on the tennis, I still could not work out what music was playing, can anyone enlighten me please?

    Am I the only one really pee'd off that ITV has got the rights to show the open? It kills the viewing experience for me when there are adverts while the players rest.

    I agree, it's really disgraceful. Scandalous. They should play one advert before each serve of the nadal so we can watch the changeovers.

    obviously would've preferred the bbc to show it, but I don't think itv are that bad, any other channel would've had to have adverts in between. Also when the bbc was showing it in previous years, didn't they only show the latter matches of the tournament? (semi-final onwards) I like how itv are offering a much more comprehensive coverage as well.

    I find myself switching between ITV4 and Eurosport all day.
    I really love it, the coverage is great. I don't mind the ads, because usually when an ad is on ITV, Eurosport is still covering and vice versa.

    Not to mention the HD on both ITV and Eurosport is magnificent. I don't understand how people watch in SD these days!
