I think the last tie was on ESPN Classic here in the U.S.....does anyone know if it will be on t.v. this weekend.? I really want to see Venus' matches with both Myskina & Dementieva. :D

whoa, from what i can see there won't be coverage, which is shocking since they promised it earlier this year...

It'll only be on the Tennis Channel in the states, but I'm hoping somehow the webcam that usually covers the Moscow tournament will be available to show the matches. If anyone can find info about this please let us know.

All,

My bad. No - ESPN's not showing Fed Cup, but they did the last time - and most likely because it was held in Florida. LOL!

They should show Fed Cup. There is an audience for this.

I guess about 3 years back ESPN stopped showing Tier level tournaments outside the US. Probably because they picked up coverage of Wimbledon.

It sucks how TTC has all this great coverage, but very few people actually have it. It feels like I never will

Wow, why don't I have the tennis channel?! Does anyone have the tennis channel that can tape Morariu's matches for me? I'll buy them from you...

That may not be true anymore now that Comcast has (FINALLY! )picked up TTC.

If there has ever been a time I wanted TTC it is for this weekend so I can see this tie. I want to watch Myskina so bad.

I have Comcast digital cable so hopefully I will have The Tennis Channel sometime soon.
