TV Coverage - Is It Adequate

ok, i thought this would be a good topic to see the state of wta coverage in each country. how often you recieve coverage, the quality, if its interactive?
i know there is a huge difference in the amount of coverage each country gets, an example (atp) is germany who are recieving one hour a day of the toronto masters, whilst uk viewers recieve 6 hours live and 2 hours replay. Australia are apparently recieving 12 hours a day!

In the US for the US OPen series we have been getting a lot more coverage then usual. We are getting semi's and finals live! It's been nice. Not sure on the men's side but it seems like everytime I check ESPN Andy is on!

This is how they do it. During Wimbledon, instead of getting the second set of Maria-Ai live, they show a tape of Serena's easy win. Maria was almost out of Wimbledon, and NBC shows a taped blowout.
The Tennis Channel could have shown Serena-Bovina live. Instead they show a tape of Maria winning 0&1. And show the Serena match on tape.

The decisions are made by idiots.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!

well the us open series is a huge improvement, or maybe im just buying into it... were all these matches on tv last year too? i don't remember matches every weekend and sometimes all the way through the week like it's been this year. im happy with my coverage, but it could be better. i dont think ive hardly ever seen a euro indoors match.
