    EXACTLY! I can't stress that enough. Even people that follow all tennis tour events can't get there heads around watching anything more than singles.

    Yeah your right sky fixed the red button problem with the option list when you go to record.

    But do they only watch the singles because it lasts for hours - you're all tennised out by the time the match is over !

    So what do you consider the premium badders events ? -

    Personally my order is MD,XD,MS,WD,WS - but suspect others will disagree !

    WD could be higher if it was not so dominated by 1 pair !

    For me I enjoy all the events excepts WD. But then again I am a bit badminton mad. To promote badminton in western culture for TV the main event should most definately be MS, MS, MS. Maybe some WS if they got into modelling and on/off court fashion(sorry just being honest)

    I'm not sure MS is best for TV - rallies are much slower than in doubles. I find and equally matched doubles match more exciting to watch than an equally matched singles match. I like both but doubles is my favourite - whilst doubles in tennis is seen as a side show !

    Oh and I agree that the use of the younger more attractive players off court could create more on-court interest !

    For you yes and me, but have you ever watched a doubles match with someone who doesn't play, watch. Their like where's the shuttle whats going on lol. Plus a lot of doubles is just about first 3 shots, brilliant for people in the know, not so good for others
