Why there is so little tennis on eurosport this year :confused:
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) :sad: :sad: :sad: ... at least this is what I found on their page...

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... :sad:

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 :mad: ). 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.:mad:

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

nothing.................. only curling and snooker :fiery:
and they call it Eurosport (all kind of sports) !!! But I don't see any tennis??!!
The last three months, I have seen four matches!!!! :fiery:
About the J&S tournament, they only show the semi-final and the final!
Thats not enough. F**K !!! We will miss almost the whole tournament!
I think there is something wrong, definetely!!!!!!!!!!!

move to the u.s. and enjoy espn's great (nonexistant) coverage of everything from after charleston to roland garros where we will have agassi, duckman, fish, blake, jen, lindsay, and the williams sisters on all the time. and they show repeats of their matches instead of live tennis most of the time. and then nothing until wimbledon. then taped coverage of one semi and the final of each of the california tournaments. then the u.s. open. and then the year and champs. Eurosport is god...

Frustrating as Euroshite's tennis coverage is, I'm just grateful that whenever we get *any* coverage. It's a lot more than most other countries get.

Still, doesn't stop me from wanting MORE coverage :p

I always said this, and I'll repeat: Eurosport does more then any sport channel. I have 4, 5 sport channels at home, but others don't cover tennis AT ALL!!!
If not for ES I wouldn't see any tennis at all, so I always thankful!

My only wish is that they'd have rights for Wimbledon :(

Is Euro Eurosport (as opposed to British) really showing curling and snooker - its difficult to think of two games that are less European in scope without naming a US invention like baseball or something quaint like bowls or real tennis or caber tossing?
