Exclamation Re: Is ESPN covering YEC?

The cable channel, Versus, is carrying the YEC. If you live in the NYC area and have Cablevision, it is on channel 408 on the digital service.

Re: Is ESPN covering YEC?

ESPN does not consider women's tennis to be important.

I have heard they don't plan to show any women's matches at the AO.

Re: Is ESPN covering YEC?

It's pathetic. The YEC has fallen so far since it left New York in 2001. And now ESPN2 won't even cover the WTA Tour championships.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

Re: Is ESPN covering YEC?

ESP(me)N can shove it as far as I'm concerned. Their covereage sucked. Versus will be showing all of the round robin matches, not a select few, thank goodness. Here's the schedule:

Re: Is ESPN covering YEC?

In the US, the YEC will be televised on the OLN channel (Outdoor Life Network) on expanded digital cable.

DVR set and ready

No, the American viewing public does not consider women's tennis to be important, or at least not as important as poker.

Re: Is ESPN covering YEC?

I'm guessing OLN is now Versus because it has replaced OLN on my digital cable.

I don't know if this is a great idea. I will get to watch tennis but at the same time who the hell will be the commentators.

There's nothing worse than a commentator who doesn't know what the hell they're talking about.

Or

Not as important when you have none of
your prominent players apart of it.

or

ESPN is telling them what they like (or should like)
as men's tennis isn't nearly as popular as women's
ratings wise, yet ESPN2 has a full line-up of the
Master Cup for next week.

Austin, Ryan, Woodforde Form Versus Team For WTA Tour Championships


Tracy Austin By Tennis Week
11/02/2006


The final team has been named for the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Championships. Versus, which will televise the season-ending event in Madrid, told Tennis Week Tim Ryan, Tracy Austin and Mark Woodforde will form the broadcast team for the six-day tournament.



Grand Slam broadcast veteran Tim Ryan will serve as play-by-play announcer, Hall of Famer Austin has signed on as analyst and Grand Slam doubles champion Woodforde will be the roving sideline reporter for Versus' coverage.

The Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Championships have a new home this year. Actually, the Tour Championships have two new homes and one has been renamed. The WTA Tour Championships returns to European soil for the first time since 2001 when the tournament makes its debut in Madrid, November 7-12.

The tournament's new American television home is Versus (formerly known as OLN), which televised the Davis Cup semifinals between the host Russia and visiting United States in September.

The tournament concluded its four-year run at Los Angeles' Staples Center last November as Amelie Mauresmo edged French Fed Cup teammate Mary Pierce 5-7, 7-6(3), 6-4 victory in three hours, six minutes to become the first French woman in history to capture the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Championship.

Versus, which succeeds ESPN2 as the American television home for the 2006 WTA Tour Championships, will provide tape-delay coverage of the tournament starting on Tuesday, November 7. Madrid is six hours ahead of the United States' Eastern time. Versus plans to present six days of WTA Tour Championships coverage, concluding with the final, which will be telecast on tape delay starting at 6 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday, November 12.

Versus Network Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Championships Television Schedule
all times are Eastern

Tuesday, November 7 starting at 1 p.m.: one match
Wednesday, November 8 noon to 7 p.m.: three matches; 10 p.m. best match of the day replayed
Thursday, November 9 noon to 7 p.m.: three matches; 10 p.m. best match of the day replayed
Friday, November 10 noon to 7 p.m.: three matches
Saturday, November 11: semifinals 4-8 p.m.
Sunday, November 12: final 6-8 p.m.
