Eurosport not showing live tennis today

Just checked the tv guide and Eurosport are not scheduled to show any of the live semi finals today
This is really unfair as sky sports as usual are showing the mens tennis and they even transmit the live night matches which are usually the best of the pic. Anyone else annoyed over this?

ONE OF THE BEST FIGHTERS IN THE GAME
2004 WIMBLEDON CHAMPION
2006 US OPEN CHAMPION
2008 AUSTRALIAN OPEN CHAMPION
2012 & 2014 FRENCH OPEN CHAMPION

Congrats Maria you proved so many haters and fans that gave up on you wrong enjoy all the success that comes to you as you deserve it!

Re: Eurosport not showing live tennis today

I am a bit annoyed by this but they will show them the next day

Re: Eurosport not showing live tennis today

What's their problem with showing live tennis after midnight (apart from AO)?

Not being shown in Canada either live. But that is usual.

Still have tennistv, but it messes my laptop up afterwards. Plus constantly freezing.

their commentators are always in London (AO they are at site)
I'm sure the Sky ones are in a studio in London too but they show tennis after midnight.

Couldnt they just show the live tennis without any commentary

Just hope ES Player works though that seems to not show the night matches either

Good luck to my favs

Re: Eurosport not showing live tennis today

I find it so annoying they show the earlier matches but once it gets to the semi final/final stage they don't show it. Eurosport really is a joke :-/

ONE OF THE BEST FIGHTERS IN THE GAME
2004 WIMBLEDON CHAMPION
2006 US OPEN CHAMPION
2008 AUSTRALIAN OPEN CHAMPION
2012 & 2014 FRENCH OPEN CHAMPION

Re: Eurosport not showing live tennis today

It's not a joke and it's not THAT bad. Relatively speaking, we do get ALOT of coverage. Frankly, I think myself lucky I get to see so much tennis, especially at tournaments like this, when the coverage starts from the first round. They're showing the semi's eventually anyway.

Muguruza
Kerber
Safarova Bertens

Re: Eurosport not showing live tennis today

If they would show it would start at 1 AM and most people are not gonna watch then anyway.

Terrible scheduling by Cincinatti once more


but tomorrow (sunday) is space from 19:00 till 22:00 made free to show both women's semifinals

Schiavone/Jankovic wasn´t on the ES player schedule either, but they showed it anyway.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.
