Petition To Eurosport Anyone?

Eurosport have not stood by their published schedule of showing WTA tennis. Last night they showed snooker instead! At least here in the UK. And despite Martina's return, nearly zero coverage.

They used to have a link to email in from their website but i can't see it anymore!

Would anyone else join in a petition to them to let them know that there ARE tennis fans out there who may even outnumber their snooker fans?!

I'd be happy to draft the message!

Pfffft, be happy with what you get, some people in the USA barely get to see only the slams.

Considering how popular tennis is, eurosport actually gives TOO MUCH coverage.

I know that very well, I'm just saying, I think eurosport shows ALOT of tennis compared to all the other sports stations.

I don't get how sports like snooker and er, SKI JUMPING can be more popular than tennis. Sadly, I can see why Italian Serie F football is more popular because of all the losers who sit and watch a ball being kicked around regardless of how shit the teams are.

The coverage is OK, I guess. But they could at least schedule properly and stop fucking everyone about.

Women's tennis sucks.

Ski-jumping is awesome. And it's only in winter. Don't even touch it
But yeah I agree that snooker is uberboring

Its on - its just very difficult to find out when because they keep on changing schedules. Martina and Ai got complete coverage today, Nastya did yesterday.

Biathlon is not pointless. And I'd take it over Schruff vs Sugiyama any day.
