living in canada sucks......with respect to tennis coverage

someone please tell me there's television coverage (preferably live) for agassi vs. hewitt tomorrow.
this is a crime against nature and sport if i can't watch it in canada. i know espn is showing it, but canadians don't get that channel and TSN is showing the blue jays vs. yankees from 2-5. i don't say this often, in fact i've probably never said it, but if i can't watch this match live somehow...or at all, i hate this country

I live in the US; but I can't watch it either because I don't have cable! I think I'm going to have to break down and get it (for my pathetic 13" tv) before the US Open. Did you find a webcast?

I find it extremely irritating too.

TSN carries the finals for ALL the Euro Masters Series but can't manage to slot two hours for Cincy? Fucking Hell.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

it's terrible... why doesn't canada like tennis more?..
we live in a country that puts baseball over tennis... a meaningless, 3 hour-long baseball game vs. the finals of a significant tournament.

Re: living in canada sucks......with respect to tennis coverage

TSN showed the Rogers Cup all week, which no one else saw. I never watched women's tennis before, but those Russians played fantastic tennis. Were you watchng tennis 3 years ago?? Well, there basically wasn't any & we're living in tennis heaven now. Have you looked at the coverage for the USO? Huge. Considering we have only Nestor as a top player, we are very very lucky to get the coverage we do get. And Daniel/Mark won the doubles...good for them. Instead of complaining, e-mail tsn (audiencerelations@tsn.ca) & tell them you love watching tennis & would like them to show even more.

Re: living in canada sucks......with respect to tennis coverage

rogers cup is better than no tennis at all, but it's like watching the atp in slow motion.
i had to watch the 3rd round and quarters at 1am with tape delay this week, and they didn't even show the semis or the finals. normally, with any masters series event, we get minimal coverage of each round, but in this case we got none.

i'll do that.

No, because the seimi's and finals were on CBC. Always check the TV guide . Here's an online one...set it to your city and cable provider...http://tvlistings2.zap2it.com

PS Where do you live? they showed Rogers 8 hours a day in Ottaw/Montreal, probably Toronto too on TSN. It was there, contact your cable company and tell them what you think.
