Those are just stupid sports.

I would say it is more popular in asia and europe. Why don't we ask someone who lives in asia and europe, I bet they would agree.

Unfortunately it matters more what people in the US want to watch and at the moment its NFL, NBA, MLB, Golf, College Football, College Basketball, NHL, Soccer, High School Sports, Peewee Sports,
-
-
-
-
-
Tennis.

If more people demanded to see coverage of Indian Wells and Miami then perhaps things would change? I'm not sure what deal was negotiated for tv coverage of these two events but Tennis Channel is a disgrace for not having early round coverage of these two big tourneys.

If the goal is to get the popularity of tennis to grow than more matches need to be televised, none of this online stream shit. If I can't go to Tennis channel to watch matches than they aren't the "tennis" channel plain and simple.

Wozniacki and Kvitova on court 2 is just bizarre.
Raonic is on a televised court because they can sell the match to a Canadian broadcaster.

Sometimes I almost believe there's a conspiracy to kill the WTA.

The SB is one event which is hyped and hyped and even after that the worldwide viewing figures are grossly exaggerated.

Half of America probably only watches for the adverts and half time show too. Take away the crazy numbers in the US and the rest of the world watches more tennis than NFL; at least that's my guess.

For those wondering why no matches on ESPN...

What gets more ratings? NCAA March Madness or WTA matches in Miami? Especially in the scarce 18-49 MALE demo?

The Tennis Channel could do a little better job. They were showing encore matches yesterday from years ago.

No. No way, no how.

ESPN2 is showing the women's NCAA basketball championship. They should be commended for that coverage; it used to be completely secondary and almost invisible.

Do you really think world wide tennis draws more people then NFL? I highly doubt you can gather around 20million viewers world wide for any given women's tennis match at any event outside slams, that's how many people on average watch NFL regular season in US alone. NBC averaged during regular season around 21 million and FOX 24

Broadcasting from 4 courts would solve the problem.
