That's outrageous
Are the "continental Eurosports" showing live semis ? If they are you can always get German Eurosport free on ASTRA.

Re: UK Viewers..Second Semi NOT on TV !!!!

That's ridiculous. 1700-1830 isn't even long enough to show the whole of the first semi. What do they need to show instead?

Re: UK Viewers..Second Semi NOT on TV !!!!



I don't have cables but am intending to go to friends to see Fedex-Kiwi today. What are the chances of it being on Eurosport? (I'm pretty sure it will be but want to make sure)

British Eurosport is a joke, it starts showing replays of games that have just finishes I.e Hewitt-Dent when there is live tennis going on, is this something to do with their rights because it doesn't make sense???

I wouldn't be suprised if it doesn't show Fed tonight.

Sky are a joke they monopolise all the top sport's and when there is a top event on that comes around once a year , they don't show it, how ironic, they have F*****g FOUR SPORTS CHANNELS FOR GOD SAKE!!!

They can't even show live coverage of a big event like this!!! an Utter joke

Are they going to do that? It would be the first sensible decision Sky have made.

Re: UK Viewers..Second Semi NOT on TV !!!!

we Canadians don't get it either... I guess it's cos they anticipate it being Rogi vs. someone and who cares, right?

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

Re: UK Viewers..Second Semi NOT on TV !!!!

Bloody disgrace. It was bad enough that Wales-England wasn't allowed to be shown on terrestrial, not even highlights. Sky should be stopped from monopolising all sport.

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

Re: UK Viewers..Second Semi NOT on TV !!!!

Totally Sucks!

I think for me the most talented of all times was (Marcelo) Rios. Marat Safin, 2004

Marcelo has an enormous talent. Gaudio, RG champion 2004

"Rios ... he has a beautiful game, great forehand and great touch," Federer, World number 1

Guillermo Coria: "Ríos and Vilas are my two idols"
