C More Sweden will also start from the QF.

(Will not be shown on C More Tennis as there's Davis Cup...)

The BT Sport channels will be on Sky. They were always going to be on Sky.

Then again, you need to connect your Sky box to a landline so you'll still need one of those.

I was under the impression this was one of the tournaments that would be shown on ES Int. But I had a look at the schedule for ES Germany and ES NL and neither are showing any matches from this tournament.

No surprise, it's not an International. The only WTA events Eurosport will show Europe-wide this year are Internationals (Linz, Luxembourg etc.), for the GDF Suez Eurosport is mainly serving as the national broadcaster in France I think.

Nope, absolutely nothing aside from the Internationals on Eurosport. Right now not even Stuttgart has a deal lined up...

The danish ES commentators keep saying there will be more tennis on ES (other than FO and USO) but they have only Linz and Lux.b. Maybe Stuttgart and Birmingham...

So a complete shambles. What is the WTA actually doing? Surely it's better to give everything back to Eurosport in these countries where nothing is getting shown than just have no deal at all. And I thought we had it bad in the UK!

I don't think Eurosport Germany has a lot of resources, certainly not like UK where it seems to be rather independent.

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

We only have it on British Eurosport for 2013. From next year it moves to a channel that currently less than 1% of the population subscribe to lol.

Surely it makes sense for the WTA to just accept any nominal fee from any German broadcaster just to get it on TV. I know tennis is not that big in Germany, but it's not going to get bigger with no tv coverage. Sports that are struggling or growing tend to just take any deal that gets their sport on televisions. It can't be good long term for WTA if Germany has no tv coverage, and will only make it look more second class vs ATP (presuming ATP is televised in Germany).

ATP is on a subscription channel barely anybody has...it really is an issue of tennis being incredibly unpopular in Germany.

Add the fact that it's notoriously hard to schedule for TV broadcasters( draws, match-lenght etc.), it really is a big turn off for them and not worth the trouble.

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

It's ashame. WTA seem to have the attitude of if they don't stump up the money we don't care about them. This is such a short-term view though. They should be giving it away for a euro in Germany if that is what it takes to get it on TV.

In the UK they have just taken the biggest money from a new channel that is desperate for any sport it can get its hands on without thinking about the long term consequences of the deal (at a time when the interest in womens tennis here is on the rise).
