I was wondering if any aussie posters know if any Network channels will have coverage to French Open or will it only be on Fox?

I think it's only on Fox. It's been like that the last few years.

Yeah only fox. Channel 9 gave up. I can't believe we have a grandslam yet we don't have all of the slams televised :facepalm:

its even more ironic when we have a player who plays well on the said surface and at the event.

yeah, I should of just flat out said what I meant :lol:

in the years Hewitt was #1 they always showed Wimbledon and US Open

we have sam who is a contendor (not huge but she is a contendor) yet we get no free to air of the french.

IIRC, they didn't televise any of sams matches leading up to the final. I have always had fox sports though s I would have just watched it on there. I don't even remember the final being on free to air

They definitely televised the semi with Jelena, and then the final, but yeah that was it. Channel 9 sucks ass.

You would think this being the first year since her Slam win one channel would invest in it. I guess they've realised it's not worth the investment.

Do they still show golf tournaments? I remember back in 2002-2003-2004ish, they used to air all the slams and golf tournaments on FTA channels even into the dawn when people are supposed to be asleep. But I haven't really watched TV on a regular basis since like 2006.
