It doesn't seem we're getting any during Fed Cup
weekend. Damn it! We had stupid Davis Cup
matches with Spain vs Usa and even a one hour
wrap up of the other matches...yet nothing about
FED CUP.

I'm pissed because SUPERSPORTS singapore
isn't really cheap and they advertise that they
are showing FED CUP 2002 and more WTA events.


HUH!!


So, if your getting coverage please do us a favour
and give us match impressions and reviews of
the ties your watching from your local area.


Cheers.:wavey:

France-Argentina will be televised in France. From the FFT website (translated):

Pathé Sport
The schedules of diffusion are to be determined. The meeting should be retransmitted on line, with in particular Nathalie Tauziat like consulting.

Which (if any) Czech channels are covering it? I get three of them via Sky (although 2 of them are only at certain times)

Gurl_tennis, Greenout

Do post if you have info regarding the screening of Fed Cup by Supersports. I agree that SCV is expensive and that they should try to provide comprehensive coverage of Fed Cup and WTA. Even the WTA events come to us late, if shown at all. ATP events seem to be very much on time.

NTV + in Russia will be showing live Germany - Russia tie. I will post my impressions in the Russian cheering thread :)

We are suppose to be getting a 1 hour highlight
show next Wed. May 1 of FED CUP matches.

Hurrah!!

I hope they don't change the schedule.
Channel 22 SUPER SPORTS are notorious for
changing schedules in the last minute.

Hi Greenout!

1 May is Labour Day, so we get a holiday. I will definitely watch out for the 1-hour highlight. Thanks for the tip.

By the way, did you catch Amazing Race 2 last night? Go Danny & Ozzie!!! Can't wait for Survivor 4 tonite.

FOR SINGAPORE Fed Cup!!

Re-checked the SCV max and it's still listed for
May 1 Wed. as 1 hour of Fed Cup highlights.
from 8pm -- 9pm.

Don't look in the programming magazine head
for the up to date schedule on the SCV max tv
web site.


We'll also get Amelia Island on Monday April 29,
at 6:30 pm .


No live FED CUP matches;but we can live with
a highlights show. :)
