Whats wrong with Canadian networks?

How come there is no network in Canada carrying the IW and Miami this year? I remember last year there was some coverage.

IIIIIII do! But they dont care, they'd rather show boxing that's over a year old. At least channel 52 shows tournaments at the end of the year, moscow, sanex championships.

maybe they should do tennis on ice
I'm sure that'd be more popular over there

hey guys, so to let u know that I had tsn half a year or so ago, and it was so annoying, there coverage! That's why I swithced to satellite(direc tv), you get such better coverage, and anybody who has a chance to switch, do it! For yourself! That will teach them a lesson! Canada is one of the best countrys in the world, if not the best, but out coverage blows! For example, last year, they said they would show Serena Williams against Lindsay Davenport, a match I was so excited, I couldn't wait(Querterfinals, Indian Wells), suddenly, it didn't show! I was so upset, and it was when Serena played the best match! argh, still mad at them, then I decided to switch, and I am very happy I did, not only do you get more tennis, but more everything, but tennis is the reason I swithed, couldn't put up with bull shit anymore, nor sportscenter, they promise all the coverage, and then they don't show it.
Well they won't have my rating points, lol.

Superhero, you switched to Direct TV which you could see all the American channels only? Do you know what is the website address that provides the channel listings? I have switched to digital cable. I would like to see the comparison of this Direct TV and my digital cable. There is a channel called WTSN (Women's Sport Network, 50 percent of women's tennis coverage). I really like this channel since they show international women's tennis coverage (taped) even the low tier events as well.

So far, I watched ASB Bank Classic and Hong Kong matches. Next week, they will be showing SF and F for singles and F for doubles for the Diamond event in Belgium where Venus won diamond tennis racquet-shaped trophy.

Also goods news for Canadians, Sportsnet will be showing women's tennis coverage starting next month. Here is the link where you can see the programming schedule for the rest of this year:

Hope it helps!
