Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams
There was a funny article posted in the german section of this forum. I believe it was from TennisMagazin where they interviewed Chris Wallace from the WTA Tour. I guess he's the head of commuications. He apparently promised that there will be more tennis coverage in German compared to what Eurosport offered. That's very unrealistic. Well it won't happen on TV. They are pretty stupid if they think that everyone is gonna watch on line and watching some streams. People are pretty conservative when it comes to TV habits and patterns. Especially the middle aged want to sit down and watch some good tennis on TV, not trying to be some kind of computer experts.
Anyway the interview was pretty funny because this WTA guy didn't seem too relaxed during that interview and the magazine obviously took a pretty cynical approach to their story. They had some insider from the TV branch who said that the WTA is making a huge mistake.
