Australian Open 2013 - Web-site Glitches

It is just the second day of the Australian Open, and a lot of things have been going wrong with the live score being up-dated on the Australian Open live score link. Just yesterday, as the Maria Sharapova was on her course to win a double bagel and be the first player to move into the second round of the Asutralian Open 2013, there was a disparity going on in the score, with the IBM slam tracker always trailing the live-scoring summary. Here is the picture below:

This was just one picture. In the second set, the live-scoring showed that Sharapova was up 5-0, while the IBM Slam tracker showed Sharapova up by 5-0.

Now, in today's matches, I was watching the Roger Federer - Benoit Paire match, and when the match culminated with Federer winning the match 6-2 6-4 6-1, I went on to check the live scores of other matches and I found out that Di Wu, who had already made history in Chinese tennis by being the first Chinese male player in the open era to play at Australian Open, added one more chapter in the history of tennis in China when he became the first Chinese player of the open era to be seeded at a grand slam.

As per the live score web-site of Australian Open, Di Wu is the 17th seed for the Australian Open 2013

What is going on at the back-end of the live-scoring, only the Australian Open team knows, but here is to the hoping that such things don't happen.

P.S Our 17th seed lost a tight first set 5-7 to Ivan Dodig. O! I just checked, he won the second set 6-4, but is down a break 0-2 in the third.

Enjoy these small glitches till they last.
