A was watching the eurosport news. They showed a couple of women matches and results. But there's was nothing said (not even result)about the Henin match.

Now I just checked their website. Most of the women matches are reported. Just guess who's missing? Yes right, nothing about the Justine match? I say who? Justine Henin-Hardenne? Oh what the hell, who knows her?

Oh how rude and arrogant of EUROSPORT! O the arrogance!!!

They must not be a true tennis station if they didn't know all the players. LMAO

Doesn't matter, I like it when she's kept quiet, so she can be the underdog, slightly but certainly moving towards the final! :D

Maybe that was because she was not playing at one of the main stadiums today ... just a guess ...

But Eurosport's coverage does ****.

Eurosport's coverage has been something between terrible and awful this week. They always choose Williams or Davenport. For example yesterday, they didn't show Bartoli-Capriati 'cause there was some Venus playing..

yesterday they said they would show Justine's match today - anyone seen it (I turned over from the mens matches)? They promised Serena's match and showed that annihalation. If they can't show a competitive match lets at least see Serena's main opponents.

You must be out of your mind to think that Eurosport will televise
Henin instead of Serena. When Eurosport got to know Henin or Clijsters.
Isn't this year Eurosport got to know about these girls after winning
the Italian and German Opens.
Tennis is about making money and Eurosport wants the viewers for the money and not about showing some just some girls who can't bring any
in-take.

I agree with the first statement.
Coverage, well is ok-ish. They can't broadcast everything.

eurosport coverage is a crap!tomorrow they r going to show capriati vs vakulenko and venus vs farina instead of lindsay vs dechy and suarez/clijsters (who play on central court!).
of course they cant make everyone happy but still i guess they do some wrong choices...like this morning when they showed shaughessy vs sugiyama.Both arent europeans,both arent champions so who really did care? :rolleyes:

This is really no-brainer. Television company -> Tough rating competition -> survival of the fittest -> make as much money as possible from ads -> show interesting characters/players on tv -> choice of two blow-out matches -> serena is more intersting than justine -> show serena.
You -> stop whining.

I was able to watch Justine's first round match through Eurosport International...how could you say this?:rolleyes:

I was even amazed to see Justine's new adidas outfit and I must say she now looks like a real tennis player out there.:eek:
