I just got Foxtel recently and had a flick through the TV Guide for next month and surprisingly there's coverage of a tournament from semi-finals onwards just about every week. It will be delayed however and within the time allocated but that's how it always was.

There'll be coverage for:
- Stuttgart
- Kremlin Cup
- Zurich
- Linz

I wonder if this is due to the new Fox Sports 3 channel and whether we'll be seeing all the tier 2's as well as tier 1's from now on because that would be awesome. Hopefully we'll get to see more of the YEC also.

yeah can't wait to see some more tennis....Fox Sports is serverely lacking in tennis coverage (with the exception of GS's of course) Its good to see more WTA tennis tournaments

just hope they don't do what they used to do

where they give it in highlight format

i.e cut a 90 min match down to 30-45 mins

No, you have to get the Sports package. Sorry for not being clear.

Well they're allocating three hours for the semi-finals so even if they do cut down, it won't be too much as to make it seem like highlights because I hate highlights - they never accurately represent a match. :lol:

If you've got the Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2 channels, you should be able to get the new one without paying anything extra.

But that may leave more time for tennis on the other two channels.
