Attention please !! A watch party for us TTW members :- The Episode (1) 3rd may 2020

Which match should we watch in the first party??


  • Total voters
    32
  • Poll closed .
Hey guys, so we were thinking that amidst this lockdown, and absence of tennis, we should not miss fun.
So me, @Yugram and @TripleATeam have planned (yeah, crazy as it sounds, 3 polar fans) to organise a watch party for all who want to join and enjoy it.

First, I'll explain the structure of this watch party. It's a kind of party in which we all will watch the same match at the same time and chat about it altogether.

0) The watch party's match will be livestreamed at the decided time through some reliable source, you'll get the link. You can enter, leave and re-enter at any time as per your convenience.
1)Everyone interested will join the watch party's group on telegram, group's Link is available here.

The Watch Party - TTW

(MODs I request, please don't remove this and help us out in the tough times for entertainment)
2) please set your username as per the ttw username so that it can be comfortable chatting
3) the timezone will be decided through the analysis of joining members
4) please be polite in the chatting, anything violent or insulting will result in ban from 2 future watch parties.
5) don't worry about the privacy and your mobile number (lol tsitsipas), telegram has an option to hide it. So chill
6) at the end of the watch party, a small quiz related to match will be conducted and a Winner will be declared. There will be a surprise gift for the winner as well.


There is the poll in this thread about which match is to be included in the first watch party. Do vote there (please leave aside your fan bias when doing so).
The match of the Watch Party out of the four given options will be decided based upon the majority of voters. Poll will close on 1st may 6:50 pm GMT.


That's about it. Vote in the poll and join the party....

Rome 2006, because it's the only one of those not free and available to watch online whenever you feel like it... At least nowhere I know of :cautious:

I'll get it and share with you, Don't worry
Even if the majority votes don't fall for the same, we'll save the match for another watch party.

Thank you very much . Please join and invite other members too.
Not sure that I'll be able to make it. It's Sunday? What time? I'm EST.

I support the initiative, regardless.

Well done.

P.S. Why doesn't it open in Chrome?

Do people really want to watch the Sampras/Agassi match in grainy 01 tv quality. Maybe since I'm young it bugs me more than most but it really bugs me. 09 W F or 13 AO 4R are better matches and are in HD. Come on people!

I guess people on here are a bit tired of Big3 matches. But you have a point.

Well, there are many other good matches as well. There should be more options.

Well, the idea was that the options represent a match for every Big3 fanbase and 1 pre-Big3 Era match. We didn’t want to make a lot of options because it could cause no clear winner situation. What matches could you suggest?

All I care about is good matches in HD. And given the nature of tennis for the last dozen years those are mostly gonna be matches containing at least 1 big 3 member. The matches you chose are all classics though can't complain on that front. If we do this again though I suggest HD matches only I don't care if my fav is in it or not.

Wawrinka vs Gasquet RG 2013, Ferrer vs Tipsarevic USO 2012, Wawrinka-Murray RG 2017...Not really suggesting, just saying there are good non big-3 matches.

After all, there is Isner-Mahut from Wimbledon 2010. :p

I watched like an hour of it when Wimbledon broadcasted it lately. Quite crazy how many aces Mahut produced, it’s not like he’s a well-known bot like Isner.

We’ll be glad if you join on Sunday. (y)

Maybe I'll come for some time, but not sure I can stay until the end. I'm very busy right now.

Are you in to the organizing online learning?
Yes. Now I'm a master student, and everything becomes much harder. What I learned before actually looks easy right now, this is crazy.

I'm not teaching this semester though. Ironically, the coronavirus also makes it a bit easier for me because I don't have to waste time on the road. (and also because there are no tennis matches, though I'm not enjoying this fact)

Some of us not so young ones are nostalgic for the former greats though. :p And I imagine the video quality wouldn't be bad.

I don't know exactly how the watching works with this thing, but that match is on Youtube in magical condition. Nothing grainy about it.

Maybe the most neutral among the BIG 3-4 fans.

Krygios/Fed is like the only match since the agassi/pete one that is worth watching twice.

All of nadal and djokovics matches are identical, they have 0 variety

Yeah, it looks to be in good quality, 4:3 aspect ratio but it can't get better than that for a 2001 match.

This is a great idea - I'd definitely like to join depending on timing
Have voted - tough choice but happy to see any of those 4 again really

This one would be pretty good as a replacement, although the image quality is not that good (but still watchable).
 
Bump.
A gentle reminder for TTW members, the poll will close in next 18 hours or so. Please make a choice and confirm your entry, so that I can arrange for the livestreaming of it from a reliable source

I probably won't be able to join, so I'm voting "anything but AO13" (assuming this is becoming a recurring thing)
