Noticed the same. Depending on when the final is scheduled, perhaps ESPN are prioritising something else?

I have Film 1 and Sport 1 combined. In their joined programming guide for December there was an article that stated that they're beginning broadcasting WTA events in January accompanied with photo's of Maria and Vika. They have a whole channel for tennis alone which is good. Wasn't mentioned what they'd do with joined events, they have extra channels for broadcasting events, i hope they use them in case of a joined event.

I know that ITV have the games on that Day so there may be space freed up on the Saturday
Hope is all we have, the way things are going. I'll roll out of bed on Saturday January 5th and fire up the tv so. They might shove it onto ESPN classic perhaps?

- Old Eurosport contract was worth probably $10 million/year (or euro? idk). It wasnt good business for WTA.
- WTA set up a higher price and legit demands for example "X hour live tennis per week".
- Eurosport wants the rights with the old terms because tennis is one of their main product, thats why they already bought rights of few smaller ATP/WTA tournaments to fill their free time. But dont want to pay much for the Premiers. They are still good market position having rights of 3 slams.

OK TennisChannel, this is your opportunity to pick up Bradnum, Smith, and Durie for regular season events and get rid of Katrina Adams forever. Don't blow it.

That is going to be the problem with giving any tennis to ESPN and BT vision in the UK – as they only have one sports channel each and also have football rights. Sky has four channels – and Eurosport have 2 to show coverage on.

During the football season from August to May they will always prioritise football on Saturdays and Sundays over live tennis. That means for any tennis events they cover in the European/middle east timezones none of the semis/finals (if it finishes on Sunday) are likely to be shown live.

The Abu Dhabi final for example on 29 December will be shown 5 hours after the event by EPSN – and that is likely to feature Djokovic vs Rafa or Murray. If they aren’t going to prioritise the top men’s players they certainly won’t prioritise WTA or smaller ATP finals over the footie.

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

In a russian podcast sport-tv.podfm.ru, TV channel NTV+ was rumoured to had bought the rights to show WTA tournaments till 2016. But no official info yet, only rumours. If it's true, I'll have to buy satellite dish to watch the channel.

They are probably talking of Eurosport France, which sometimes has a different schedule than Eurosport International

What are you complaining about? The WTA does have it all lined up..

Now the question is, how can receive that mysterious network called TBA?
