Is there any live coverage?:rolleyes:

All I see is an hour highlights of the SF, and then a hour highlights of the final:rolleyes:

Last year, they showed the Semi live and the final live.

Whats going on? (Said like Serena at US open 04 )

It's a tier freaking ONE :(

Eurosport have been CRAP this year when it comes to tennis.

Because tennis on Eurosport, outside the three slams they have, dies more every year? Only a couple of years they showed from R16 of almost every Tier I and II +they showed a lot from the large non-masters on the ATP, such as Dubai, Barcelona, Queens. I don't know why they don't anymore. Sometimes I suspect the tournaments themselves pay for coverage, ie Dubai and Doha always have good coverage on both ATP and WTA.:confused:

Better some coverage, than none at all.

IW, Miami and Charleston have all been disappointing this year.
When you think Dubai we were getting three live matches every day. I guess ES coverage will improve again, when the tour comes to Europe.

Here's (http://yahoo.eurosport.com/tvschedule_clng0_day2.shtml) what I see. :wavey:
(Hope it's true and JJ is in that final :lol:)

The coverage should be much better for Berlin and Rome.

I remember watching Golovin beat Venus in Charleston a few years ago on ES

That was a last 16 match....

I was just looking at the Eurosport schedule today (hoping to find some Charleston coverage). It's a little disappointing, but I'm pleased there'll be some coverage at the weekend. I can't really complain too much about Eurosport - they've been a great TV channel for me over the years with their tennis and winter sports coverage...

Maybe there's a live feed somewhere? I'm gonna look for some coverage somewhere *crossing fingers* ;)
