Re: Eurosport Loses Roland Garros Tv rights

I didn't really understand why Eurosport AND Sky were both showing the US Open this year...

Re: Eurosport Loses Roland Garros Tv rights

Nooooo

I only have Eurosport to watch some tennis on TV I was looking forward to RG for years and how will I watch matches from the comfort of my sofa. And now this heartbreak.

Thank god we got one sport channel last year, it's plenty of tennis there, but they won't be showing RG. And the comentators suck, they have no clue about tennis, just some random football mugs picked from who knows where.

I hope Eurosport somehow gets back TV rights and I hope they will show us more ATP tennis. There is just too much WTA!
I also hope some Eurosport manager is reading this.

It won't happen.
The reason why Eurosport shows so much WTA is because the rights are much cheaper (and I dare to question 'why' that is, ).
ATP and slams (more and more in the future I guess) are mainly on pay-TV channels because a lot of tennis fans find it worthy to pay for it, this in contrast to the WTA.

Not so sure about this. Eurosport had very extensive rights to the ATP Tour in 1995-99. I remember all the Super 9's were well covered and pretty much week after week lots of ATP tennis. Back then they didn't have US Open. Also the WTA had a very good reputation ten years ago, it was on a high back then. Eurosport picked up the WTA rights around then.

Eurosport is after all a huge company and like I said as far as I remember there's always been loads and loads of tennis on the channel. Really, if they would lose their tennis coverage, the whole channel would suffer so much damage.

They don't have many exclusive rights, and they don't have any real football, so I could imagine they would really invest all their efforts in tennis. I'm sure they won't give up RG easily.

What I've noticed from Eurosport (the Dutch version that is), is that in the course of time more and more very obscure 'sports' are being showed there - I even remember several 'strongest man' contests, as well as a contest on which lumberjack could seesaw through big trunks of trees the fastest.
I still think it's a matter of $$$$$$$$$ first and foremost.

Well at least they still cover the winter sports pretty well.

Yes, the TV rights went up for the ATP, hence they cover the WTA instead

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
