Just checked the tv guide and Eurosport are not scheduled to show any of the live semi finals today :rolleyes:
This is really unfair as sky sports as usual are showing the mens tennis and they even transmit the live night matches which are usually the best of the pic. Anyone else annoyed over this? :confused:

Diddums.

Not being shown in Canada either live. But that is usual.

Still have tennistv, but it messes my laptop up afterwards. Plus constantly freezing.

their commentators are always in London (AO they are at site)
I'm sure the Sky ones are in a studio in London too but they show tennis after midnight.

Couldnt they just show the live tennis without any commentary

Just hope ES Player works though that seems to not show the night matches either :rolleyes::rolleyes:

Ratings? :shrug:

But then again they have no problem showing the U-20 football world cup, swimming, diving, etc. :o

I find it so annoying they show the earlier matches but once it gets to the semi final/final stage they don't show it. Eurosport really is a joke :-/

It's not a joke and it's not THAT bad. Relatively speaking, we do get ALOT of coverage. Frankly, I think myself lucky I get to see so much tennis, especially at tournaments like this, when the coverage starts from the first round. They're showing the semi's eventually anyway.

If they would show it would start at 1 AM and most people are not gonna watch then anyway.

Terrible scheduling by Cincinatti once more :worship:


but tomorrow (sunday) is space from 19:00 till 22:00 made free to show both women's semifinals

Schiavone/Jankovic wasn“t on the ES player schedule either, but they showed it anyway.

I think you can watch the semis live on Eurosport player and the ATP matches on tennistv.

Yeah, that sucks big. It is weekend time and for sure I would watch it even when it is a very late schedule for me in Germany. So it must be live stream.:o

Eurosport player and tennistv provide very good streams though. I never have any problems like buffering with them and the picture Ēuality is very good.

THIS SO MUCH. Friggin Americans get to see early round matches from IW and Miami too while everyone else gets to watch from R3 at the very earliest. :(

Typical Eurosport. I love it, especailly when they've shown LIVE coverage of the tournament all week and then when it comes to the final you only get highlights, one hour highlights. Now, you try not to look at the result but, no matter what it doesn't help when they have one player leading the other 6-4 6-5, they then take a commercial break and when they return there's about 3 minutes left of the programme and both players are in a tie-break. Then, Simon Reed asks 'can she take it into a third set?'.

What if WTA players took up cycling, maybe they'd show more tennis?
