Exactly. The WTA's problem is that people don't care enough to begin with in some markets (like Germany)...so why would anybody care about people not caring?

This is just an error/not properly updated from them. Unless they have changed their schedule (seems unlikely). They advertised showing Abu Dhabi at least a couple of times during WTF from 27th December. The fact Murray is playing it, it seems unlikely they would have changed their minds. And they've shown this
event for several years anyway.

Also with regard to the matter in hand, and in the UK. Is it not surprising that their seems to be an apparent deal in the UK, but such a deal is not being advertised. If it was BT Vision as seems to be the general consensus, you'd think they'd least advertise as such given it's not like everyone already has access to it. The lack of any sort of press release anywhere really seems strange when you consider the season is 1 month away.

With 1 month to go and mainly only coverage in french speaking countries known, will we get WTA coverage with only english speaking comments... Like we get for ATP coverage in Denmark?

They would have to have lost the plot for this not to be the case.

"Unlikely" equates to what percentage figure? Not that an ATP exo is foremost on my mind.

WTF= ATP World Tour Finals, yes? I'll cheerfully admit I watched very little of it on Sky, so I'll take your word for it on those promos.

Anyway, that's enough for me.

I got a reply from Danish C More...

I asked "Will Canal 8 or C More Tennis show WTA Premier tennis next year?"

Quote:
Hej Jørn

Tak for din mail. Vi kommer ikke til at vise WTA tennis næste år.

No, C More Tennis won't show WTA tennis next year.

Please visit my Caroline website.

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
Got pretty much the same reply.

Quote:

Dear Sirs,

I am emailing you to find out if you have any firm news regarding a broadcast partner for WTA Premier events for Ireland and Great Britain for 2013 and beyond. With the 2013 season less than four weeks away, some positive developments would be most welcome. I am aware that tennistv.com will be providing online coverage, but I would like to have the option of television viewing as well.

Best wishes

............

Dear Kieran,

Yes, there is a broadcaster confirmed for next year but which one will be released when the channel decides to do a press release.

Best regards

Daniel

It did appear in some TV shedules that British ES would show it. But it has since then been removed from the schedule.

How much does ESPN cost in the UK, as it is an extra? I can't find any listings on the ESPN website saying they are covering the China Event, is this because Laura is playing there?

I believe the BSkyB site shows the ESPN schedule but only for a few weeks ahead.
