NBC Tennis coverage is using the new NBC Sports graphics package.
At times a scroll appears at the bottom updating the scores but it's not formatted correctly and the bottom is cut off.
The NBC bug was normal for the first match but now it's solid and looks bad,
I hope this is an error and they go back to the semi transparent bug.
