Me too, and even if one picks it up, it's not going to be to the extent of Eurosport. Eurosport was really good. Plus, if you bought the Eurosport Player online you always had that additional WTA channel too whenever a tournament was going on.

Maybe their coverage of US Open was ridiculous but that's mostly because SkySports had the rights too. WTA you just killed it for us, you really did.

" to promote tennis rights decentrally "

What's that suppose to mean?

No other channel will broadcast! That's pretty much the end of tennis in Germany! Thanks, WTA!

I'm screwed.
Sad, I noticed this year there has been a lot less tennis shown on Eurosport this year. Have enjoyed the coverage of the WTA and hope too see it continue.

O and the Foxsports guy is painful, its not that he says anything overly silly and seems likable but there are times when he clearly needs someone to bounce views off.

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

They want to negotiate individual broadcasting rights for different regions. They probably expect that they'll get more money this way. Whether this actually improves coverage is yet to be seen.

Yes, more money/better contracts for them does not necessary equate to better coverage. And worse coverage would equate to less money in the long term, but oh well. We have no influence in this.

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

It will be really bad when there'll be also no live streams. Otherwise I can live with that.
So we'll get to watch only 3 tournaments each year, where ES will torture us to death with matches of the local mugs until they lose.
And I'm tired of watching the likes of Kohlschreiber, Mayer...and of wishing they'll lose early.
So RIP ES!

This sucks so much. I actually liked ES.

Gee, thanks, WTA. Now I'll have no way to watch your sport at all.

Thank you, finally exactly what this is all about. I can't understand all the people praising the livestreams. I am not able to watch the european tournaments live at noon / afternoon and the australian / american tournaments live at night (european time). I HAVE TO WORK at noon / afternoon and to sleep at night because of getting up early in the morning to go to work.

Thats why watching live tennis for me was / is only possible some hours in the evening and on weekends. I was happy with Eurosport because I could always record tennis on my hard drive recorder and watch it after coming home from work.

So at least THIS is a difference between Tennis on a TV channel, able to be recorded and watched later, or live streams which are ONLY LIVE.

I can't imagine that I am the only one with the problem not having the possibility to watch tennis live on streams at each time on a day / night

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

Noooooo
People can complain about ES not giving tennis enough importance but at least they broadcasted matches from all important tournaments (bar Wimbledon). Now we might be left with nothing. Of course some countries will probably get good coverage but many will probably have no access to tennis on TV. I don't see how this is good for WTA.

Besides, if Polsat Sport starts showing WTA tournaments I will have to watch it on mute all the fuckin time

RIP Agasport too...

Not to mention the streams are ad-filled crap in 480p that become unwatchable in fullscreen I'd gladly pay a few euros for official, extensive 720p+ streams, but guess what, there will be none with the rights to broadcast in my country if ES player goes down.

No, but they now have 4 channels to fill and like I said they would never shaft tennis to favour winter sports and other such novelty crap Eurosport's mostly Mitteleuropa constituency seemingly can't get enough of - let alone snooker. They even shifted their golf coverage to a dedicated channel.

SportTV have always broadcasted a ton of ATP (wall to wall TMS/1000, a lot of ATP 500 since a couple of years or so, and now even ATP 250s), with no interruptions to show people in funny hats skiing at Scheissewald, Schwaben or some shithole in northeast Pomerania. The rather uncompelling WTA MMs (Bastad, Chokoroz) they broadcasted in the past didn't even get shafted all that much, though their Fed Cup coverage usually is as it coincides with the weekend's wall to wall football broadcasts.

So if SportTV do indeed purchase the rights, I'm almost positive they'll do a way better job than Eurosport ever did. Plus they don't give a shit about Agatha's scrawny, disgustingly ugly ass.

Still, all of this is pure conjecture at the moment. If MCS claims to be available in Portugal, maybe they have plans to market their channels here, hopefully including their all-WTA channel. If they don't, that should open the way for a local broadcaster, which can only be SportTV.

Looks like that might be the case. Happening virtually as we speak:
