Still a joke really TBE. We have had Doha in full every year on Eurosport, and now they change because I presume they don't care anymore now they're losing coverage.

Bad news, but Eurosport's coverage was a joke, so it's not as big a blow as it might have been.

Eurosport Australia still hasn't returned my call. I shouldn't be too hard on them. They might have a new phone and be waiting for the on-site training.

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

This is really ridiculous, even channels which bought the rights are showing only QF, SF, F. Honestly this is a joke, is WTA so pround of the move? We will see when sponsors start to back off. No one will be interested in sponsoring product which is not promoted on television.

How much did Eurosport actually pay for the rights (if at all)?. Because lets face it they have them because BT Vision don't have a proper platform until July-August. I have a feeling Eurosport don't care because they have no real contract as such, so why does it matter to them to promote the sport. Snooker is the best of the other stuff they have (viewing figures wise) so they give it priority.

Obviously ultimately this is WTA's fault, they sold to a channel that have no platform to show the product on, a subscription channel starting from scratch that will initially have very few viewers. Unfortunately it seems the WTA has no long term plan, they take the quickest buck with no thought if it actually benefits long term.

This is made more ludicrous by the fact that Sky Sports were interested but BT Vision were willing to pay more (as they were desperate to get any old sport on their platform), despite the fact Sky Sports would have been a far better decision from a promotional stand point as we know they hype every sport they have through the roof, and constantly hammer it home on their 24/7 news channel.

I saw on Twitter that someone from Swedish Eurosport tweeted that Eurosport is gonna show WTA Barcelona, and the date mentioned was March 18...that really can't be right. The tournament is not even played and that date is way off.

I still don't have a single fucking clue as to what MCS is. I basically have no coverage of tennis on TV right now, which is sad.

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

No tennis on TV at all? I feel for you guys, it must be awful .
In Poland TVP has bought the rights, the matches are avaliable to much wider audience, like whole country in fact when on open channel but the commentary is very bad especially when Fibak is around and Fibak and Jonca combo is just dreadful, awful switch from Eurosport. But it's still better than nothing. I had to watch first tournaments via internet streams and I hate it. Hope they sort it out asap!

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

Overall what have WTA actually achieved from this change? Have they even got more money given the lack of any deal in many countries? Even if they have, they have alienated way too much of their audience. I almost get the feeling that they felt their product was worth a lot more than it actually was.
