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

Given that the UK sports channels have published their schedules over the new year, the only broadcaster left that could show Brisbane is BT, but who launches a sport channel at Christmas? It could be that they're just going to miss the start of the season while they get their act together or just launch it FTA on their own platform only.

Here in Nordic countries we has a Tennis channel, my guess they will show the first up China MM, (IF not Brisbane) even it not yet in their schedules...

They have now add they will show the 6 TOP 10 mens playing just after Christmas...

Please visit my Caroline website.

Sky listings up to January 12th show only one tennis program; the Murray/Djokovic USO final on December 26th. Both stations could still be in the running, heck, anything is possible at this rate!

This is 100% incorrect though. Cos Sky 100% are showing the Abu Dhabi exhibition at the end of December. I presume, but I don't know for certain that Eurosport are also showing ATP Doha like normal the week after too.

The IEC deal starts January 2nd. Whoever has it will have to pay for Brisbane so why not show it?

If ESPN have Shenzhen then they probably won't be showing Brisbane and Brisbane is part of the 22 tournament package.

That's a winning recipe. Someone isn't doing his job correctly.
have you seen the quality of women's tennis?

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

It has moved up quite a lot in the last year.
The thing is, the journalists don't pay any attention and are happy to write their same old stories from 2007.

Well if it's BT it's far from certain they will have a channel to show it on, at least not one available outside of their own platform.

Sky Sports, ESPN and British Eurosport have published their schedules but, granted, as we've seen already they can change this far out (not that any already pre-scheduled live events would be moved for the tennis).

I have emailed all the agents and journalists advising about this mess! Serena's agent came back to me, and asked what it was that I was wanted to know! At least she came back to me no one else did. So I explained it!

100% incorrect? So when I look on Skysports.com for live tennis listings I see this. Now, sure, I do recall they've shown that exo in prior years (and might well do so again), but obviously you have that scoop.

There needs to be more public media pressure on the WTA. But there won't be any because it is not interesting enough.

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!
