Eurosport

Why there is so little tennis on eurosport this year
the same with J&S - last year there were matches each day,this year they are going to show only 1 semi-final (live) and the final (re-live) ... at least this is what I found on their page...

Eurosport prefers to cover stupid sports like curling and snooker.

and when they do decide to show tennis its never on time!! u guys should email them if you go to the website and go onto the tennis section theres a comments email address. Its worth a go the more people who email the more chance we have of gettin to c sum tennis rather than the oh so boring curling and snooker which in the uk is also being shown on bb2 POINTLESS!!!!!!!

I've just wondering what to wear, because I thought "I will be on tv" Last year they were showing matches each day, so I hoped that it would be the same this year... BIG disappointment...

Good luck to POLISH GIRLS

not only that, they replay the finals starting from midnight and the replay is not even complete (e.g. is the Venus-Conchita finals only the 3rd set was shown ). Their news report is even longer than what they have shown.

They use to cover tennis beautifully but now, they're treating tennis like second class sport.

U are all right. I really think Snooker is OK and I like to see it one or two times a year, but it´s quite every afternoon. WOW, how interesting to put a ball around...
