Re: Eurosport.

I will have to dig out some of my older eurosport threads- they were quite colourful for the most part.

Re: Eurosport.

Don´t say something like that about Eurosport. It rocks. I love it.

Who wants to play with my balls?

Re: Eurosport.

Eurosport does a reasonable job. It's not a pay per view channel. It just doesn't have the money to show live tennis all the time.

Re: Eurosport.

Re: Eurosport.

Wow, ok, me being a total gearhead, you mentioned "Eurosport", and my first thought was EuroSport (www.eurosportacc.com). Ha ha ha.

Re: Eurosport.

Eurosport is okay, but they don't show enough ATP.

I have nothing against WTA, but I think it's unfair that 75 % of their tennis programmin is from WTA.

And I like ATP more.

And they almost never show ATP...

The difference being, ESPN shows SOME of the world's best at TMS events while Eurosport doesn't even show these events at all. Therefore, if you are a fan of men's tennis and are forced to rely on Eurosport for coverage, you're pretty much screwed.

Re: Eurosport.

Why are Eurosport so big about women's tennis, while they virtually ignore men's tennis?

Don't they want to telecast the "real game"...?

Exactly. We must wait for the French Open to see men's tennis again on Eurosport, since they won't show any ATP match in april and they have no coverage of the Masters Series tournaments.
I think the last finals we got to see live on Eurosport (except the finals in Scottsdale) was the finals of the Australian Open.
So no comparison with ESPN.

They might show one of the Spanish tourneys, I vaguely remember having seen one of them last year on Eurosport.

Not true . Eurosport showed Dubai.

Re: Eurosport.

The finals in Dubai was not live, at least in Germany.
Last year they showed some clay tournaments, that's true, but I checked the programms of april and there are only WTA-tournaments (Amelia Island, Charleston and Warsaw). I hope it's not true, but that's what I read on several websites.
