- Old Eurosport contract was worth probably $10 million/year (or euro? idk). It wasnt good business for WTA.
- WTA set up a higher price and legit demands for example "X hour live tennis per week".
- Eurosport wants the rights with the old terms because tennis is one of their main product, thats why they already bought rights of few smaller ATP/WTA tournaments to fill their free time. But dont want to pay much for the Premiers. They are still good market position having rights of 3 slams.
