Too bad how self-centred America is in its DC coverage, but then its every country - Croatia, UK (BBC = Tim + Greg), USA, France..
On another issue, it makes sense that the Croats win because indoor carpets are their best surface, and they need confidence from something like this to maintain a good ranking. It would be funny to see Croatia have more players in the top 50 than the much more populous Britain.
You're lucky about TMS. Eurosport doesn't have the rights to cover those or Wimbledon for that matter.
I understand that other countries may not want to show DC ties that don't pertain to them, although I do think they should all show at least the DC final.
I would actually like to see more British players in the top 50. Tennis has always been huge in Croatia and in Yugoslavia before that. Boban Zivojinovic and Goran Ivanisevic are legends. I don't know what happened to GB, why there are no prospects or promising young players.
