Default Tennis on 1080i

How come the tennis on terrestrial HD is being shown in 1080i? I
thought 1080p was used for fast moving images and 1080i for relatively
static shots.


DTT doesn't have the bandwidth to do 1080-50p, it can only do 1080-25p
or 1080-50i. 1080-25p is used on DTT when fields 1 and 2 are the same,
which is not the the case with tennis.

720-50p would have the bandwidth on DTT, and that would give the desired
temporal resolution, but not spacial
