Hmmm, so this means Linz will be the last regular season event ES show, and the Tour Championships the last ever WTA event?

Hopefully the commentators pick other work. Not having Jo Durie behind the mic would be a loss.

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

What I've heard, Eurosport has national contracts. I guess it's obvious that the WTA won't be shown in many ES-countries after this year. There's even a chance that it won't be shown anywhere by Eurosport. But who is gonna show it then? I think the WTA is overpricing their product. Maybe some station will pick it up in France, and maybe some small station will pick it up in Spain. No one will buy it in Germany, I can't see anyone in the UK being too interested. In the Scandiavian countries there aren't really any good options either. C More has the ATP rights, why would they buy WTA if they can't show anything?

Eurosport was pretty much the best thing that the WTA had. In the long run this isn't good news for the women's game.

Eurosport has shown hundreds of hours of tennis for many years. I doubt they would show only three Grand Slams next year? That would sound very odd. Maybe they'll buy some smaller ATP tournaments and a few WTA tournaments.

Yeah it's true C more won't show WTA over ATP, and they basically have rights for most ATP tourneys. If this turns out to be right, I'm afraid it will be the end of WTA in Scandinavia (and northern Europe)!

We still haven't got an official confirmation though.

Ithink Canal Digital started C More Tennis for a reason, they may know they also can show WTA next year instead like now show same mens turny over and over....

In DK Danish C8 Sport and C More Tennis can share the Rights...

But i can see it more expensive in Sweden to get that new Tennis channel... here C8 is part of my TV Channels...

It would be a dream to have WTA on SuperTennis, no more Bundesliga or other shit to be casted instead of tennis but could they afford to buy the rights? :\

Ah yes, I forgot about Moscow. Not an event I get excited about, tired players, that massive, almost empty venue. As for Luxembourg, ES don't show it here anyway.

C More Tennis is basically the same as Canal Sport 2, or whatever it was called. Just the name has changed. It was allways full of tennis anyway. And when should they show WTA? The big tournaments are very often at the same time. And there are so many ATP 1000 and 500 tournaments that they don't need more. And probably they calculate that the price is way too high. I doubt the women start playing their matches at 8 am so they don't have to show ATP reruns at that tme slot. And they haven't really bought any smaller WTA tournaments when there are off-weeks like this week. And during the Slams they can't show anything anyway.

C+ Sport 2 don't showed many reruns in tennis like C More Tennis now... But in Denmark we have C8 also who will show the same mens 1000 tournaments, so maybe they can share with WTAs also... But won't help in Norway og Sweden...

The only thing I can tell you is that I have honestly received that mail just like my fellow German poster did. And all the other posters received the same answer freom different countries as you can find in this thread. I'm sorry, but I'm not faking.
