Will any German TV televise RG longer (outside ARD ZDF)?

In the past years I got use to that ARD and ZDF have a great coverage from Paris. Every day 5 or 6 hours live tennis.

Now I saw the TV guide for next week, and both channels have only 2 hours a day from 14.00 cet to 16.00 cet.
It's very little, they can't show a full match of Schüttler at all....

Is there probably another German TV station which also show matches from RG at other time?

Does it switch from one station to the other? i only have ZDF and usually you get action one day and then nothing on the other day.

eurosport is broadcasting the entire day....

it's a shame ard and zdf reduced the coverage....

"We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls"

Tennis coverage has very bad ratings in Germany so ARD/ZDF show as little as possible, and no one else is willing to show tennis.
Thank god there's Eurosport. If they only didn't have Giro.
