British Eurosport need to fucking die

anybody else REALLY concerned with the coverage of women's tennis this year at Roland Garros?

for example. WS....8 matches...coverage of 2 sets

Your right they should rot in hell for tody and yesturday. We missed the Cappy match because of HIGHLIGHTS of a football FRIENDLY between France and Fucking ANDORRA!!!

Then they put cycling on and stop us from seeing Mary vs Venus, and today we miss Elenas win, and Serena and Venus.

Considering they are the home of Womens Tennis they are being really shitty.

I agree we ought to see enough of Venus and Serena to see how they are. Its even more annoying though that Sveta/nastya wasn't shown as it was actually the tightest match we have had and predictably so. Next they will be complaining the womens matches are uncompetitive again and showing bits of Serena's.

Yep, it is so frustrating. My thread after Day 1 voiced your concerns exactly, I had an awful feeling that this was going to happen! On the bright side, it is better than just BBC coverage.

I now, cycling has to be the most boring sport in history to watch! I would love to see the rating vigures for Eurosport, I wander if tennis gets less viewers than cycling for them to show it, I doubt it though somehow!!

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.
