Here in argentina we watch football a lot (of course), you can watch local football and almost all of the other important leagues, but there's a lot of others sports to watch, Last week I had on TV the 3 tennis tournaments of the week, I watched the 3 finals on sunday. I mean, even when here the most important sport is football, you can watch a lot of tennis too, we have a lot of tennis on TV. (and a lot of other sports too)

Re: *0* Fans Pix *0*

Atenea, lucky you are there in Argentina then! In Russia there's only ONE free sports channel! And the biggest attention is drawn to football there, of course. During AO and RG they've got a pretty full coverage (thanks at least for this ), but they weren't showing Wimbly this year We've also got cable tv, I believe 4 channels there: Football, just "Sports" and "Sports online". They showed Wimbly live on Sports Online. There's also Eurosport, but they hardly ever show tennis! I just dream that one day someone clever will create a Tennis channel

Marat >>> all the others

Re: *0* Fans Pix *0*

In england we get shown quite a bit of sport mainly the ones that involve us and also if you have SKY you have heaps and heaps of sports channels to watch what ya like but on normal tv it does lack tennis coverage (except Wimbledon which is like a big deal over here, prob cos its in england lol) and when football season begins on 13 aug, every weekend and some mid week footie coverage takes precedent (personally i dont mind), also most weekends we get like a sports grandstand coverage thingy in the afternoons

p.s. the thing with eurosport that annoys me is that when they do have coverage of Tennis touneys (other than the GS) its WTA

Avid Fan of:

Iguana, Biscuit, Pim Pim, the ledge that is Rafter! and my new love Nole!

Other Notable non-tennis supportees: Aaron Peirsol, LIVERPOOL, Kimi 'World Champ' Raikkonen, Thorkildsen, Adam Scott and many more......

Not where I'm from... I'd be glad of some soccer/football coverage. The only thing we get is the bigger matches of the Soccer world cup! NZ's very much a rugby nation so there is a lot of that. I'm not a huge rugby fan but I like the bigger international tournaments.

I can totally sympathise with lack of tennis coverage! The only thing we get on free-to-air is the last 3 days of a tournament that's played in Auckland mid-January and Wimbledon (and you get coverage of the other Slams and most of the Masters if you have Sky, I think). But I'd be all for a tennis channel!!! lol

Btw, Cindy19, loving your Andy shirts!!! Very cute!

Re: *0* Fans Pix *0*

Here we have TyC sports, they show tennis almost every week, DC & Fed Cup (even when Argentina is out) ESPN and ESPN+, they show all MS, US open series, and they have long coverages during GS, and ESPN+ shows "Copa Argentina de Tenis", that's a 4 days exhibition here on december, and also Fox Sports latinamerica, that also shows lots of tournaments

@Cindy: Messi will play soon with Argentina team (not sub-20, the big team)

ARGENTINA

Re: *0* Fans Pix *0*

Lbyf, sure, but not all people who love tennis have the chance to watch it! These cable channels might be an extravagancy for them. imo, it's unfair!

Re: *0* Fans Pix *0*

Just from reading all the posts I think Argentina gets the award for best tennis coverage!

Richard Gasquet, Andy Roddick, y Rafael Nadal

Carlos Moya, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Tommy Robredo, Mario Ancic, Bob and Mike Bryan, David Ferrer, Marat Safin, Andrew Murray, Edouard Roger-Vasselin, Julien Benneateau, Nicolas Mahut, Eric Chvojka y Feliciano Lopez
