Yes. I couldn't believe TTC switched to Federer FIRST SET when Venus was in a THIRD set. Thank goodness for channel 704!

LOL. That was ridiculous. Venus was almost out of the tournament and they were still showing a first-set tie-break.

Directv is the best

Thank so much to them because we don´t have WTA Coverage in Latin America (unless you suscribe with DirecTV )

It's outstanding. Hope it's available for all the slams.

About two months ago when I bought my house.

It's a proprietary cable system with programming provided by Dish Network, but the coverage is identical to what you're getting with DirecTV. 6 channels.

Re: The Tennis Channel/DirectTV Coverage...

Oh okay, then! You will get all 6 for Wimbledon, the US Open and the Australian too. It is especially fun when they start to put some doubles on and you can watch instead of some boring men's matches.

Re: The Tennis Channel/DirectTV Coverage...

Cool. Personally I think this is the greatest thing ever to happen to tennis. I cannot imagine going back to ESPN2 after this.

Re: The Tennis Channel/DirectTV Coverage...

Only drawback is they stop covering all the courts after R16.

Direct TV has such great coverage. I like watching the doubles matches when they show boring men's matches.

Re: The Tennis Channel/DirectTV Coverage...

I have direct TV in my frat house! Can't wait until the US Open!

What I don't like about it is that it doesn't show the later matches in the schedule

I love Direct TV. I dont think they know how much tennis fans appreciate what they are doing for the sport.
