Yes, they only showed the mens events from those tournaments. Fox Sports have an agreement to show all the Masters Series tournaments for men (live every day) which is great if you like mens tennis. But they only show limited women's tennis.

You need Eurosport for the womens tour

Fox Sports can get Eurosport tennis matches like last year! Why they don't do it anymore?

This year they are constantely advertising WTA Events, every issue has a little guide of how Foxtel are showing us tennis all year. They constantely mention WTA, but are not showing the little amount of tournaments we at least got to see last year.

Only Aussie here to win a title over summer was Alicia Molik....and Zeroooooo coverage of it...makes me sick...wasn't even on the news...it was ground breaking news for womens tennis here....however then again the ABC in Australia claim to "be promoting womens sport" however they cut the Womens Basketball final with 90 seconds to go AND Netball final last year with a few minutes to go.

U CANNOT support a cause (as womens sport has become here) and promote it only to leave a crowd of watchers wondering what happened!!!! Disgracefull....Our Netball team are now won world Championships twice in a row! Our Basketballers are second only to the US.....but they don't ever cut "Jack-High"!!! who wants to watch fucking lawn bowls?

For Internationallers....The Australian Womens Hardcourts was given "Zero" coverage...not even covered in the news at night Perhaps Cathy Freeman could try to play tennis with a WC and we could see some.
