Well, if we assume that he's not one of those ppl who use wrong country flags, then he's probably referring to the livestreams on the france 2 HP.
French Pay TV channel beIN Sport shows a lot of Olympic tennis btw.

German TV is only offering a few selected matches via live stream on their site, so I am using the BBC Player a lot.

Re: why Tennis is not getting any coverage ?

We had a good tennis coverage here in Latin America. Plus, the tennis tournament is quite debated in shows related to the Olympics. So, I have no complains

Maybe they are not showing it because the stadium is half empty ?

Well, I'm not saying that is not enough, but there is no doubt baseball is played in fewer nations that any current Olympic sport. The fact that some sports (like river rafting) is not really big in any country (at least as far as I know) is apparently not a concern.

If the US really wanted baseball on the program, though, the least they could do was to field a team strong enough to beat the Cubans. This they managed only once in three attempts from 2000 to 2008, after the amateur requirement was lifted. A few stars might have made a difference to the sport's Olympic future.
