Eurosport coverage of Charleston

Is there any live coverage?

All I see is an hour highlights of the SF, and then a hour highlights of the final

Last year, they showed the Semi live and the final live.

Whats going on? (Said like Serena at US open 04 )

It's a tier freaking ONE

Re: Eurosport coverage of Charleston

Because tennis on Eurosport, outside the three slams they have, dies more every year? Only a couple of years they showed from R16 of almost every Tier I and II +they showed a lot from the large non-masters on the ATP, such as Dubai, Barcelona, Queens. I don't know why they don't anymore. Sometimes I suspect the tournaments themselves pay for coverage, ie Dubai and Doha always have good coverage on both ATP and WTA.

Re: Eurosport coverage of Charleston

Better some coverage, than none at all.

IW, Miami and Charleston have all been disappointing this year.
When you think Dubai we were getting three live matches every day. I guess ES coverage will improve again, when the tour comes to Europe.

(Hope it's true and JJ is in that final )

The coverage should be much better for Berlin and Rome.

I remember watching Golovin beat Venus in Charleston a few years ago on ES

That was a last 16 match....

Re: Eurosport coverage of Charleston

I was just looking at the Eurosport schedule today (hoping to find some Charleston coverage). It's a little disappointing, but I'm pleased there'll be some coverage at the weekend. I can't really complain too much about Eurosport - they've been a great TV channel for me over the years with their tennis and winter sports coverage...

Maybe there's a live feed somewhere? I'm gonna look for some coverage somewhere *crossing fingers*

So long, signature...
