Lol great. Does that really get more viewers than the tennis? As Patrick says though, almost certainly there will be streams Monday-Saturday from Doha.

Something still doesn't sound right to me. Eurosport have always shown Doha and Dubai in full, in fact in the past it has been one of the only events that the commentary teams were on site and would do post-match interviews with the players. To not be showing a Premier 5 at all when you have "full coverage of the WTA tour" doesn't sound right.

One thing that is intertesting is if TennisTV is to be believed. WTA coverage of Indian Wells is to start on Saturday 9th March. This is 2 days earlier than in previous years so would be an improvement. Having said that, it would still only see coverage begin mid-way through round 2. And still less than half the coverage ATP Indian Wells receives (WTA 20 matches, ATP 47 matches).

There's nothing to show on Eurosport about WTA tennis now. All premier tournaments are in a local broadcaster which telecast Eurosport as well. Very nice though with Chinese commentators and anytime replay...

Lol yes. The irony of that it wasn't the actual snooker running past midnight. It was the fact that some Dhaka rally that was scheduled after the snooker apparently couldn't be cancelled. Because that apparently is more important than grand slam tennis.

The problem with said theory. Is nearly everyone who knows about Eurosport player will know they can just stream the matches for free elsewhere, and not be like a minute behind the live action either.

Actually, yes the Dakar Rally finish is more important than earlier rounds of Grand Slam. In motorsports there are few things more important, if any at all. Also Masters final in snooker is something like Grand Slam final in tennis
It's EuroSPORT, not EuroTENNIS, you know...

But whatever it is, is not even being aired live? How can it be that important if it's not being aired live? There is also no way British Eurosport (bare in mind British Eurosport is separate from Int'l Eurosport) are getting more viewers for the Dakar Rally than the tennis. It was a bad business decision.

Also that is terrible from Eurosport re-Doha. Not showing a P5 before the quarter finals is just .

A quick question if ES isn't showing it will we still get streams via MCS or the other EU broadcasters?
