Worldwide TV finally going to show TMC Documentary!

Looks like it'll be good. Mixture of on and off-court looks at the players

Leave it to ESPN to cut it to focus on Andy and Andre

Tennis Masters Cup Uncovered Premieres Monday

Have you ever wanted to follow a player from the court into the locker room?


Have you ever imagined what it would be like to ride with a star on the morning of game-day?

Have you ever wondered, "what do players do on their day off?"

Now you can experience it all for yourself with the exclusive documentary "Tennis Masters Cup Uncovered." The one-hour documentary will debut Monday night, December 22, on Eurosport.

The film, produced by Tennis Properties Ltd (TPL) for the ATP and presented by Mercedes-Benz, follows the world's top stars both on- and off-court at the Tennis Masters Cup Houston, where the ATP Champions Race 2003 and the sport's biggest payout were at stake.

See all your favorite stars as they chase $3.7 million in prize money and the title of Masters Cup champion in the world's most high-pressure tennis tournament. See Andre Agassi doing his pre-match preparations, follow Juan Carlos Ferrero on his day off, watch Andy Roddick shooting hoops and much more.

No other tennis show on television will bring you closer to the stars and the drama of men's professional tennis.

More than a dozen international broadcasters will air "Tennis Masters Cup Uncovered" which premieres Monday on Eurosport at 23:45 (CET). Sky Sports in the United Kingdom will air the show five times over the New Year's holiday beginning on New Year's Eve at 6:00pm, 9:00pm, 1:00am and again the next day at 10:00am and 3:00pm.

The U.S. broadcasters, ESPN2 and The Tennis Channel, will first air the documentary during the weekend (January 17-18) prior to the 2004 Australian Open. The ESPN2 version will be called "Aces: Agassi, Roddick and the Masters Cup" and is scheduled for 12 Noon on Saturday, January 17th. DVD copies of the documentary will go on sale next month on ATPtennis.com.

Check back for all broadcast times.

It will be interesting to see if everyone around the world gets the SAME version...

No doubt we Canadians will get what you Amers will get... that is, the Andre and Pandy show... how exciting, as if we don't see enough of those guys on TV, even if it has nothing to do w tennis...

actually, i'm sure we'll get about the same things being shown, i just think ESPN renamed it to entice people to watch it. lets face it, your average american won't watch something to do with tennis these days if it doesn't include Agassi or Roddick. quite sad actually

Re: Worldwide TV finally going to show TMC Documentary!

it'll be the same except on ESPN because they are cutting it in half.... so Naldo we can't get the same thing, it'll only be half as long lol

so RogiFan you should get the full hourlong version. Everyone should except the US (unless you have TTC). You're getting on TSN, not ESPN so it should be the full version I should think.

Thanks bunk. I hope TSN shows it at a decent hour - not 1 am on a Sunday or something like that.

oh it's gonna be played at some weird ass time on TSN, you can bet your bottom dollar on that and bunk, obviously we won't be getting the exact same thing, but what i meant was that we're gonna be getting similar stuff. we are for sure gonna see the full length of AGassi's part, and also Roddick's part. we'll most probably get the full version of Ferrero and Federer as well, since they won Slams this year, and are in the top 4. the others, Coria/Schuettler/Moya/Nalbandian (Daveeeeeeeed ) we will probably see a shortened up version of theirs. i am really looking forward to this, it'll be cool to see what they do besides practice/play!

Re: Worldwide TV finally going to show TMC Documentary!

well it sounds like there was one full version produced. TTC, Eurosport, etc. will be showing the full version. ESPN2 in the US will show a half-hour edited version. What TSN will show in Canada I have no clue, but if they show the full version, it should be the same full version.

so then just right click it and "save target as" and you'll have it in your pc, then just play it on whatever thing you got. its a good little preview, but some of them are quite stale

Oh he looks pretty damn hot, if you ask me. Camera shows him (close up) getting a massage, and as he turns his head to the camera, his curly black hair falls so perfectly over his face ....*sigh*

Can't wait to see the behind-the-scenes locker room shenanagins.

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!
