BBC interactive to show as much as Eurosport!
From the BBC website
"The French Open will be live on BBC Interactive.
For the first time BBC Interactive will allow digital TV viewers to watch action from matches for the entire duration of the event.
Coverage begins on 29 May and runs right through until the 11 June from 0800-1800 (approx) every day. Digital TV viewers should press the red button on their remote at any time during live action from Roland Garros in order to access the service. "
In previous years, BBC have just shown the singles finals live. Whilst of course British Eurosport will have lots of coverage, it is sometimes marred by having to break off for other events. The article doesn't make it clear if there will be any choice of courts. This does seem to indicate an increased commitment by the BBC to tennis, following their live coverage of the Australian open evening sessions.
