The thing I'm worried about and which has been mentioned here is when one broadcaster has both the ATP and WTA rights. Next year we'll have that situation here in Holland. Unless one of the extra channels will be used they'll have to switch between ATP and WTA. It'll also mean less coverage in HD.
It's likely they'll use another channel for this if necessary. I'm quite happy with the move from ES to sport 1. ES had fair coverage but not all that great. Sport 1 is very thorough in their ATP coverage with lots of tennis programming besides the tournaments themselves.
