Smile To Canadian tennis fans

Hi guys,
i'm moving to Toronto, ON and I would like to know what channels are broadcasting ATP and WTA tennis tournaments there, so I can subscribe a cable TV package that includes such channels.
Thanks a lot for your answers.

Re: To Canadian tennis fans

TSN & TSN2 (TSN is the main sports channel in Canada...)

Don't expect any WTA coverage... they don't show anything. Might as well watch and record free streams online.

Re: To Canadian tennis fans

you can find some free streams online but rarely are they any good. as a last resort, you can download matches off torrents.

there's a great paid service by eurosport, the eurosport player. it's not pricey and gives you access to a bunch of courts (and other sports).

Re: To Canadian tennis fans

TSN shows the grand slams and ATP Masters Series and the Canadian Opens. That's it.
No WTA tournament coverage other than the Canadian Open.

My Forever Fav: Jelena Dokic

Serena Williams, Ana Ivanovic

Yeah, TSN and TSN2 will give you all your Canadian coverage (which is really good considering how unpopular tennis is in our country. I think all our coverage is to respect tennis as an "elite" sport and cater to us crazy niche fans).

WTA you get the Slams, Canadian Open, and Miami semis/finals (maybe IW too). Its definitely worth getting, even for not that many events shown.


Congrats on moving to Toronto, awesome city!

Re: To Canadian tennis fans

Yep, the only WTA coverage we get is the Rogers Cup. And last year the final of YEC.

I don't think they showed Miami finals or semis for women's in a couple of years I watched the Miami final on CBS

Re: To Canadian tennis fans

Our TV coverage sucks. I watch everything on live streaming. Atdhe.net is pretty decent.

Welcome to Canada!!

Oh my bad. But we still got it, so w/e.


I miss Sportsnet showing all kinds of WTA. I remember being bored to death watching Amelie beat Coetzer at Amelia Island in 02/03? it was great.

Sportsnet showed the Hingis-Dementieva Kremlin Cup match in 2000.


And a couple of years ago, we were getting WTA Miami coverage from ESPN ... not sure what happened?

Re: To Canadian tennis fans

I'm trying to find a program so that can record online streams. That way I can watch stuff later... Replay Media Catcher works with a few streams (JAmieOwen uses it), but not the justintv / ustream ones

LOL I remember seeing Myskina vs Schett in Moscow on Sportsnet back in the day, it was sooo random.

Canadian tennis coverage But I'm not complaining, I guess I'm just used to it at this point. Live streams are essential.

Re: To Canadian tennis fans

I used to love all the coverage of obscure Tier III & IV events that used to show sometimes on WTSN. Sadly that channel doesn't exist anymore.

Serena Williams/Venus Williams/Angelique Kerber/Serena-Rose Zhang/Qrystyna Wang/Golden Flowers
