How is it possible such a big tournament doesn't even have streams until then?

Some basic principles to aid in understanding the lack of tennis coverage in the U.S.:
1) The WTA is located in the U.S. But,
2) The WTA's function is to promote the WTA, its officers and functionaries.
3) The WTA's function is NOT to promote Women's Tennis, NOR to promote coverage of Women's Tennis in the U.S., NOR to promote enjoyment of Women's Tennis by the fans, NOR to promote dissemination of useful information about scheduled tournaments.
4) It is simply about the money.
5) Once Women's Tennis in the U.S. has been reduced to a footnote in the public consciousness, the WTA will be merged into the ATP.
6) The Road to Oblivion will be complete.

Nah... It's just:

$$$$$$$$$
If any TV station offers the WTA money, all livestreaming goes out the window. If this doesn't happen, Bet365 (and other bet sites) smartly offer to cover the events. Needless to say, no one wants to pay the WTA to broadcast Internationals, so they get great coverage.
