Re: USA WTA coverage the worst on the planet!

The WTA is badly managed, that's nothing new.

The Vancouver main court has HD live stream + commentary.
The WTA should offer this for all non-televised matches.

Yes!

I don't know why every second or maybe almost every WTA International has a stream coverage and WTA Premier Mandatory events and the other Premier events during US Open Series have no coverage until 2nd part of the week.

Re: USA WTA coverage the worst on the planet!

I will never understand why is the coverage so bad there? Can someone, maybe Ben, clear this absurd situation?

Re: USA WTA coverage the worst on the planet!

The problem is that tennis has become very unpopular in the States. The general population knows for Serena, Venus, and maybe Sharapova. The WTA has done a terrible job promoting the sport over the last decade

Then, how it is possible for them to host so many tournaments?

This is true.
Jankovic vs Burdette was played in front of maybe 200 fans on Monday night.

Maybe, their tickets are too expensive, too?

Re: USA WTA coverage the worst on the planet!

Their MM coverage is also f******* stupid. They have coverage from court 2 in Memphis and court 3 in Washington, but not the main courts.

I think that everybody from USTA and all the tournaments directors have to be f***ing morons.

Re: USA WTA coverage the worst on the planet!

WTA's only fault here is that they have no power to force US channels covering it from 1st day. If contract details would be different they would do change the blackout, obviously.

I guess because there are no morons in Germany who don't care about the other countries where people like tennis more.

coverage was this shit even when they had Davenport, Capriati, Seles, Williams 10+ yrs ago
nothing changed, still no TV coverage till Thu/Fri for WTA events in US

at least get some cameras out so we can see it, if they dont wanna show it themselves

Re: USA WTA coverage the worst on the planet!

I just don't understand how its hard for them to get streams of WTA tournament early round coverage in the US. The technology is obviously there and no one else is showing the damn matches. I mean it wouldn't bother me so much if there weren't a channel already dedicated to tennis, IMO they just aren't using all of their resources on this issue.
