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).
