I'm so happy and lucky to have the Tennis Channel. Their programming is strong, and repetitive, but I can't help but to notice that the ATP Tour events are Shown often.
Not only are they shown often, their shown "Live" and from the 1st Rounds till the Last. Usually WTA wise we get the matches Delayed and only Semi's and Final rounds.
Which leads me to believe that the ATP has vested more of an interest to air, has put up more dollars than the WTA? I can't imagine there is any bias here, but...I would love to see the WTA step up and pay for the Coverage of earlier rounds.
Last week we had the Men in Rome...Live, and Repeated. Womens Semi's and Final Rounds Saturday and Sunday...Tape Delayed
This week...the Men in Hamburg...LIVE, and Repeated. Womens Rome Semi's and Final rounds on Saturday and Sunday...Tape Delayed.
i don't know how much the packages are and the spot for veiwing times...thus having these tournaments overlapp...but the WTA should Step up and become more Vested..for their fans that support the channel.
are they in a financial crunch?
