Thumbs down Ski jumping over tennis in Poland

This is one of many examples of how tennis is unpopular in Poland. Fed Cup Poland-Belgium meeting will be broadcast in TVP Sport (sports channel which belong to polish public broadcaster) - available only on very few cable networks and digital platforms - while their main channel TVP1 will broadcast World Cup in Willingen in ski jumping. C'mon, ski jumping is every week while tournament in Poland is a rare stuff. I must watch tennis via livestream if it will be as I don't own this f*cking TVP Sport.

Do ski jumpers ski with poles? If so, there's your answer.

Re: Ski jumping over tennis in Poland

C'mon, they jump every week and Adam Małysz won't start in Willingen. Only one Pole, not very famous one - qualified.

Is there really a need for all your hurtful comments? If you don't have anything good to say about someone, why not just stay quiet? Radwanksa won't go away just because you hate her. As a matter of fact she's been in the top 20 for quite some time now, there's probably a reason for that.

Maybe the Poles don't even know that they have a player in the top 10 of the WTA ranking

Re: Ski jumping over tennis in Poland

winter sports suck.

But don't worry,now that global warming is on the way,the snow will melt and these awful sports will vanish for good.

No, we have courts like.. everywhere. Really, lots of people play tennis here. It's just the media that doesn't do anything to promote it. But even without it I don't think it's that bad.

Same Thought what a cool idea/promo thing that would be

Maybe they should do it, they could combine showing the tennis & the skijumping at the same time then & kill 2 birds with 1 stone

Don't despair. As little as 12 zloty will buy you access to sport.tvp.pl

Well they say women shouldn`t be the president
Cause we go crazy from time to time
Well push my button baby here I come
Yeah look out baby, I`m at high tide
