It's very unlikely ES will make an announcement stating they've lost the WTA rights. Instead stations that have signed deals to show WTA from 2013 onwards will make announcements. So far Sport1 (Holland) and yesterday MCS (http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-A...0912_MCSTV.pdf) have announced deals. Both are premium TV channels (I'm assuming MCS is) and probably won't be to happy if their premium content is available on a free to air station.

The whole structure of ES International and the country specific editions could still mean some versions will still have WTA tennis next year. For example in the past few years British ES has shown slightly more tennis then ES International.

Overall I do think this is a bad move from the WTA. Probably some media rights company has been telling them their rights are worth more then what they currently make with the ES deal. In the short term this could be the case, in the long run it'll mean less coverage.

So bye bye tennis. I won't really bother with online streams, especially during the clay season where I can't even see the goddamn ball!

Will we at least get ATP Queens?

Nope, that's official, at least for France and a few other countries:

No more snooker, curling or summer's ski jumping ... what a relief!

Unless ES are going to share the WTA pie in those countries, I don't see this as a fake. ES are hardly going to be rushing out the news that they've lost rights to one of their prime sports. Perhaps negotiations are ongoing?

I can't understand how Allistair thinks it's good and lucrative. Here in France everyboy knows Eurosport, few people know MCS...

So basically we know that this MCS TV group will be available in "France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Israel, Portugal and selected territories in sub-Saharan Africa"... what will be of the other countries?

Other broadcasters will announce it when the negotiations finished. Why do you banging your head?

How long ES has WTA coverage? Did it really helped WTA that much or helped Eurosport more? Probably its time to try somethign new.

Probably true, but about the italian Eurosport commentators I can say it would really be a sad thing to lose them. They're very good and however this situation will end I hope to have them working for whatever broadcaster will (hopefully ) make a deal with WTA and have the rights.
