I mean the WTA is clearly more up to date than the ITF, the ITF still host the slams in NYC, London, Paris and Melbourne. Clearly Beijing, Kinshasa, Florianopolis and Baku would be better locations. These are the "emerging markets" after all.


Pathetic.

MCS is a French TV channel that covers several sports; they will create another channel which will be fully dedicated to tennis. MCS has been covering a few International and ATP 250s for the last few years. From what I've read, it will be available on cable and satellite, but on the Internet as well, which could be good. I mean, LSHunter, hahasport, lemonsport...will be destroyed by the FBI sooner than later.

I'm so devastated by this news. Was about to subscribe to the cable which will air ES channel.

On the other hand Eurosport here not showing live the Beijing final (even on ES 2) is unacceptable.
Good riddance.

Yesterday commentators said that British ES supposedly shows it live and on others it would be delayed to 14.30

Haha, in Sweden that means virtually no WTA or at least the coverage is very limited. C More with ATP rights won't move the men's matches out of the way, because of these matches. And rightly so.

The Eurosport boss on twitter said they were also negotiating. This was very surprisng but I guess the WTA got what they wanted. A bit more money and no coverage.
