This is a 'deLuxe' Tennis Masters series and I think ESPN has a contract to televise most of them (esp. those held in US) from beginning to end.

Of course the WTA could try to get a deal going with ESPN as well, as most of their summer hardcourt tourney's are in the US and are star studded affairs. Who knows why they don't market better. It is a shame. Not having ANY coverage from Stanford this past weekend was a JOKE!

Yeah...I don't understand why the WTA has been so late on the ball with TV coverage!
It's time for some new leadership at the WTA...the current leaders aren't doing a good job...with Serena, Venus et al on top, women's tennis should be one of the most popular sports in the U.S. right now. If it isn't, it can't be the players fault...it has to be the organization's fault!

One? Marketing job?

pft, I think a coup d'etat is in order...

I agree! A coup d'etat is in order.

When the WTA is very popular in the States, there is no TV coverage for many of the Summer events.

I don't understand. ugh!

Europe seem to get much more WTA coverage than the US, eventhought the tournies are in the US right now... lol, strange.

Eurosport shown Stanford from semis, and will show Sandiego from QF.

We also get Montreal from more or less the begining then full coverage of Usopen... plus before that we have coverage of the clay season, but i got to say it was much less than last year.

The WTA couldn't promote a free piss-up in a brewery.

It's a joke Free! But it isn't funny! I've been waiting since 1997 for better cable television coverage for women's tennis. And I'm still waiting! I've been waiting since 1997 for a weekly or monthly WTA television update show, like the one they had circa 1994. And I's still waiting! I keep saying 1997 because that was the year women's tennis seemed on the rise due to the great young blood they had on their hands! Martina Hingis, Anna Kournikova and Venus Williams were all on the way up. Then Serena Williams hit the scene in 1998. But somehow the WTA dropped the ball where cable television coverage is concerned. The men still own the cable television coverage. The women are still in the dark ages where cable television coverage is concerned for women's tennis!

And Fox Sports used to show the occasional semifinal and final on cable television and over the air Fox television. What happened to that? Women's tennis television coverage has actually gotten worse recently! And that is a disgrace

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

I swear,I would be happy if they just regularly included tennis scores on the ESPN/ESPN2 ticker tape!!!

They show ARENA football scores more often than they show tennis scores.

and god forbid you miss a score, since they seem to include them randomly, you can't take your eyes off the screen for the next 20 minutes to try and catch up.
