Demand for tennis DVD's??

Ok, I've come across web sites and people here on the forums selling tennis DVD's and I definitely think there might be interest in those. My question is, how much demand is there and at what price?? I have tons of VHS matches from '04 but just recently bought an expensive DVR/DVD recorder. I have several '05 Monte Carlo matches on DVD in high quality, including Fed-Gasquet and I'm wondering if people would buy at the $10 Canadian ($8 US approx.) price.

It's awesome that guys like JustmeUK are turning matches into torrents but I know for myself I like watching matches in high quality on a big tv instead of a small section of my computer.

I love having them for myself to watch but I'd like to provide a service for the tennis fan community as well. I'd love some feedback from others. Thanks!!

Re: Demand for tennis DVD's??

I forgot to add that I know others are offering matches as well, but I'd like to do it in a less expensive manner than what others are doing. $15-$20 US seems like much to me.

Unfortunately, no. Only what TSN is willing to show here, and doubles is usually not included.

Re: Demand for tennis DVD's??

Everytime the same? Not necessarily. The variety of a vendor's produce usually reflects his work. Thus, if he had singles, doubles and mixed, I'd be more inclined to look at his collection overall.

Jim Thomas - Max Mirnyi - Jordan Kerr - Rohan Bopanna - Andy Roddick - Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi - Ilia Bozoljac - Chris Haggard - Jan-Michael Gambill - Donald Young - Nathan Healey - Lleyton Hewitt - Jamie Murray - Olivier Rochus - James Blake - Vince Spadea - Tim Henman - John Isner - Travis Parrott - Paul Goldstein - Tim Henman - Wes Moodie - Arnaud Clement - Michael Russell - Jeff Coetzee
