How did they announce it? Actually very surprised they would say something on air. They probably didn't say if they have some new options for next year? I can't believe Eurosport has no tennis next year. Well, besides three Slams.

The danish ES commentator this week said more times on air, ES don't have got the WTA rights for next year... mainly he added a yet also... But he said it was not looking good for ES to get the Rights...

It's odd that they are talking about it on air. Maybe so many are asking about it?

Someone asked on SMS. He said unfortunately Eurosport lost the WTA rights for the next year. C more Tennis got the rights. Then he said they will still have AO,FO and USO and possibly one or two additional WTA tournaments.
But the main rights are lost.

This is indeed a big fail cause C more Tennis will never show WTA over ATP. I wonder how many WTA matches they will show every week? Probably the final only (if it doesn't clash with the ATP final), then no matches.

Gee, that's awful. Like we discussed it here before. How will Eurosport fill the space that tennis leaves behind? One or two additional tournaments is really needed. Maybe they'll pick up some smaller ATP tournaments as well.

I guess every possible exhibition tennis will be on Eurosport next year. They need all they can get.

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

CMore (Canal Digital) have mainly all the 250 mens also if they want to show them, so ES can't get (m)any...

In Denmark we has C8 so they can show mens on CMore tennis and womens on C8. Can't that be done in sweden showing tennis on CMore Sport?

^ It can, but I doubt it. They have plenty of other (more popular) sport events. It's unlikely they will show tennis on 2 of their channels.

Not here in Germany because Tennis doesn't have really high TV ratings expect for the Grand Slam tournaments on Eurosport.

They will show more Football, like this week where they show the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

For UK
Announcement to be made during Istanbul or week after
My source says "rumours it's SKY"

That would be awesome if it is so

That would be great. The women will probably be bumped to red button outside of PM/P5s but it's better than nothing and they'll probably snap up ES commentators too. Plus there should be match options too.
