Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams
Dear Mr xxx,
the way you have read and interpreted (the news) are correct. Eurosport will not broadcast the WTA Tour from 2013 onwards, because the contract with the WTA for a paneuropean broadcasting has not been extended. Tennis still remains an important sport in our programme. We will again broadcast three of the four Grand Slams (Australian, French and US Open) live and partly exclusive. Furthermore, we will show some selected ATP tournaments and perhaps one or another smaller WTA event. We are still negotating new rights packages, but cannot comment any further on the current situation yet.
Until the end of October we will still be live and exclusive on air on the way to and during the WTA Championchips.

it says here they are still negotaiting so perhaps there is hope. It would be such a shame if they lost this...
