ESPN do have 2 available channels, namely ESPN and ESPN Classic, the latter of which does show live tennis from time to time. They should probably rename them ESPN1 and ESPN2.

BT Sport is also likely to have 2 channels. I note that 'Sailing 1' and 'Sailing 2' have appeared in the Sky EPG at 445 and 457.

So Brisbane International starts in 2 weeks and still no information on tv broadcast. Just amazing WTA.... *frustrated*

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

After the big announcements by MCS about theirs buying the rights for WTA in Europe, the schedule has been revealed.
Only 50% of the Hopman Cup covered, and only 2 QF and 1 SF live from Brisbane (all other matches showed delayed): how much of a joke is that?!
I think we should all turn our attention to tennistv.com, but I'm too afraid it's gonna be blocked in France because of MCS having bought the rights for my territory.

There is your great deal, WTA. Again: Publicity is just as important as money for the association. Such a huge mistake. I think Allester has to step down as CEO because of this MASSIVE fail.

What about a petition?

This deal is going to be so damaging for women's tennis, very frustrating. The WTA & perform should go crawling back to Eurosport right now to at least minimize the fallout of this massive fail but we all know that's not going to happen.

Maybe they will rethink their position for 2014.

Listen, I know you have a hard on for me for some reason but please don't bother, I won't respond to your baiting any longer.

You behave like a five-year old, it's really embarrassing.

He knows that, he just wants to annoy me. Don't bother...

Every five-year old can understand that the WTA having no TV presence in several major markets is a disaster, especially if you`re coming from having Europe-wide coverage the years before.

The WTA simply completely overestimated the appeal of their product to broadcasters. Yes, $10 Million per year from Eurosport wasn't all that much but at least it guaranteed almost complete coverage in Europe. Now they have no TV partners in lots of countries and probably end up with less cash as well...the few stations they have announced are hardly big names and probably didn't pay much.

This really is a winning formula. No coverage and no money. WTA just rules the TV world. Well at least they are consistent, the new WTA site is also more or less pure crap.

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

Stacey Allaster is ruining the WTA. She needs to step down. What will be the Tour be like in 2007?

They won't ever find a sponsor if they don't have TV presence.
Then they have the YEC in Tianjin and that loser tournament in Plovdiv.

What a joke.

Yes, but apparently, having no coverage at all is better than having to share the coverage with *gasp* other sports.
