Its a mixed event, I assume they will just show the Centre Court, men or women!? The womens event is actually much better than the mens in terms of stars, so I wouldnt worry.

The coverage of Eastbourne was awful at the best of times, to be honest. Endless coverage of men's tennis, yet the BBC decide to shun the women

Re: No BBC coverage of Eastbourne wta?

Women's tennis coverage on BBC is a joke. They always show Eastbourne women's till this year maybe they haven't cos of the world cup. On another note I live in UK and was on my holiday in the Maldives last week and on satelite tv in my room I watched most of two women's quarters, most of semis and final from Birmingham, Uk and that tournament has never been on UK TV what a joke

Re: No BBC coverage of Eastbourne wta?

Eastbourne used to be a tournament only for women and the BBC was all to happy to broadcast the tournament. Since it is a mixed tournament now they will broadcast the men, it is very sad that since the mixed tournaments, I only speak of the non grand slams,women are put in second place. It is important that women keep their own tournaments but they obvious cannot find the sponsors. The women are bragging they all play so well but honestly put they are boring.

I remember Channel 4 once showed the Birmingham final in the 80's, Shriver v Maleeva final - other than that it's never been on tv that I remember.

The BBC are probably more interested in showing Royal Ascot than showing Eastbourne
Thank god for Eurosport
