Fox Sports (Australia) not showing Tokyo

I checked the TV Guide about three or four days ago and the semi-finals and final of the Tokyo tournament was still on the schedule but now it has been taken off.

Since Tokyo is a tier 1, are they ever going to show any women's tournaments?

Also, according to the updated TV Guide, Foxtel are only showing the final of the Delray Beach (ATP), whereas they were originally going to show the semi-finals as well.

Really annoying how they got me looking forward to seeing some tennis on TV only to take it off the schedule.

Re: Fox Sports (Australia) not showing Tokyo

That's so typical of Fox Sports.

I thought the point of adding FS3 was to show more sport, not to show more boring replays of the A-League.

Instead, they're showing the 5th(?) replay of the Australian Open review.

A-League.

They said they were going to show more tennis on FS3, what a load of rubbish that promise was.

A-league is almost finished, any chance they will show more of other sports after that?

We can only hope. What else could they possibly show after the soccer has finished?

Re: Fox Sports (Australia) not showing Tokyo

They've got plenty of room to show it on the schedule especially since the coverage wasn't live anyway. They just don't want to put in the money and would rather put in cheap repeats/replays .

Re: Fox Sports (Australia) not showing Tokyo

Maybe they may show the Tokyo final a week later like they often do with the womens tournaments ... I don't know why they do that though.

Luckily I have Eurosport and they are showing the semis and final. But it's in French and I always prefer the English commentary on Fox Sports. So here's hoping they show a replay at some stage.

Fave recent players: .. Seles .. Hingis .. Serena .. Venus .. Federer .. Roddick .. Hewitt .. Haas .. Rafter .. Safin .. Radwanska ..
60s/70s: Evonne Goolagong .. Francoise Durr .. Chris Evert .. Margaret Court .. Nancy Richey .. Maria Bueno .. Billie-Jean King .. Lesley Turner .. Virginia Wade .. Ken Rosewall .. Rod Laver .. Bjorn Borg ..
Entertainers: .. Diana Ross .. Dionne Warwick .. Shirley Bassey .. Randy Crawford .. Burt Bacharach .. ABBA .. Woody Allen .. Maggie Smith .. Gena Rowlands .. Judy Davis .. Heath Ledger .. Little Britain ..
Inspiration: .. Jeshua Ben Josepth .. Conversations with God .. Abraham with Esther & Jerry Hicks .. P'taah ..

Probably more Soccer, or Cricket, or anything that we've already seen 34568927048523903418 times.

Re: Fox Sports (Australia) not showing Tokyo

guys email feedback@foxsports.com.au and complain. The more people who do it, the better, even if you don't live in Aus.

I am also a big follower of Womens' Artistic Gymnastics and it used to get nothing, but after persistence and emailing the coverage has really increased to over 16 hours per month.

I thin FoxSports shows a lot of gender bias in that the ATP tour is on much more, and most of their sports are already male dominated. That could be a good angle to take.

Re: Fox Sports (Australia) not showing Tokyo

this is mine:
thanks alot fox sports, once again you have snubbed womens sports again. It was advertised earlier in the week in the tv guide that you were showing the WTA tokyo semis and final now you are not. Im sick of you screening d-grade ATP events like Delray Beach & Rhode Island and not showing top class womens events like Tokyo. We live in the year 2007, i thought their was equality between the sexes, but apparently not, and this is coming from a male. please at least show a replay sometime next week, I think its the least you can do.
