this

anw ES choice makes sense and WTA is the only one to blame for that. They (WTA) are giving more and more space to the "new markets" cancelling events in Europe in favore of Asia - Middle East, whose time zone is horrible for Europeans and ES surely doesn't get as many viewers early in the morning as they did showing the high quality matches of the European Indoor swing, considering that with the American Swing often being played late in the night for Europeans they broadcast only 2-3 months of tennis on a good time.

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.
