So I assume no WTA matches in Eurosport International next year?

It's unlikely. Looks like Eurosport is filling the WTA gap with lesser ATP tourneys.

^ Seems like Eurosport will show Grand Slams + Birmingham, Linz and Luxemburg

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

I emailed Perform earlier to ask them what the situation was with the UK. They've just sent me a link to TennisTV :P

So RIP Tennis on TV in Germany, Poland, GB and likely DK


Even I think a danish TV station will try get the Rights to show Caro's matches...

Please visit my Caroline website.

Btw, Here in DEN ES can't show much mens matches to fill the gap as they don't have the Rights...

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

There was an interview in a German tennis magazine with the responsible executive recently. They're in total denial, still claiming that everything will be better next year while it is obviously near to impossible to reach Eurosport's level of coverage, let alone better it.

Hat sich einer der Zuständigen dazu geäußert welche Sender für Eurosport einspringen? Gibt es dann überhaupt noch tennis im free TV oder nur noch Sky & co?

The WTA shouldn't be struggling.
They have international superstars such as Serena and Maria, a Chinese in the Top Ten and a bunch of hot girls.

That's a winning recipe. Someone isn't doing his job correctly.

Yes, it's gone off my listing guide too. New developments though; Hopman Cup highlights on ES, WTA Shenzhen on ESPN (only semis and final), ATP Brisbane highlights also on ESPN.

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

I just emailed Daniel Franck, Joint COO of IEC In Sport to ask what the situation is with UK broadcast rights. Wasn't really expecting a reply, but got one straight away!

Dear Dan,

Thanks for your mail. Yes there will a broadcaster in the uk airing the wta but we can't tell you which one until the channel decides to do a press release about it.

Cheers,

Daniel

Very interesting if that's a real E-mail and you're not just bullshitting us.
