Well, i have eurosport france & i get frustrated right now. They always skip the women's matches, except when Momo & Mary play. Tonight, for example, Mathieu/Sargsian : that's normal, the match was exciting so they put it in place of Lindsay/Bovina. Then i was expecting Venus/Rubin which started when Mathieu/Sargsian ended : no way for Eurosport. They go all the way with Henman/Tabara. :rolleyes:

other example : Thursday, Momo, Grosjean played at the same hour. Momo was live,then Grosjean, and in spite of putting the match of Clement live for the last games, they put the whole match, skipping the thrilling Schnyder/Hantuchova. I'm so mad :mad:

it's never going to please everyone and if you like both mens and womens tennis, you'll find they do give decent coverage of both events.

it has to be said, during the early rounds of Slams, the men's matches are far more entertaining on the whole. from the quarters onwards, the women definitely receive equal coverage and attention.

yeah i was disappointed not to get to see any of the lindsay bovina match because they havent seen any of davenport over here yet, well not what from ive seen. im actually surprised that they have stayed with the henman match instead of going to venus' match, just goes to show that mens tennis no matter who is playing is better than seeing 2 top women play, ratings wise. i always get bored with mens tennis.

agreed that the women's matches have been of a higher standard than we're used to seeing. But, still, they're not nearly as compelling as a whole bunch of men's matches. Myskina and Sharapova are the main casualties, and both lost with a tonne of double faults and unforced errors.

Not one match from the nightsession was covered by Eurosport LIVE, but they showed them the next afternoon. I think in the second week they will cover nightsession, I hope so. It would be a pitty to show one semifinal the next day, when you already know the score. :tape:

Sky is just as bad. They are showing Henman the loser in a three hour match with some nobody. Even more maddening they turn off their interactive service with its choice of matches for the night session so this is the only time of day you can't see AA.

Some hope ....Henman is in danger of losing his serve.........


Would the US show Roddick or Agassi if they never won anything? Why do we have to get henman then.

Put another way that just means the top men are just not very good?
