Eurosport sucks! You wouldn't be so amazed by it if you were here during the US Open when they would stop the broadcast to show live speed walking in China or where ever it was...

Other amazing sports (on Eurosport 2)- snooker, curling, those fat concrete block carrying guys, freaking darts world championship!...the only alternative thing i like is that Japanese viking thing

well, if you are not only an ATP-tennis fan Eurosport is well. The ATP coverage sucks hard, but if you are interested in different sports, then Eurosport is well. You have many different football-tournaments (youth's and seniors), you have cycling, you have athletics, you have loads of snooker, you have Olympic Games 24/7. Most of the stuff is live-coverage, so when you are a sportfan in general, Eurosport actually rules.

well, ATPwise Eurosport has 3 slams (no Wimby), no AMS and occasionally other tournaments (like Queens and Vienna)
WTA coverage is much better with a lot of tier I's.

so you're only sounds pretty damn good to me. ;)
us Euro's still have to look elsewhere for the Masters series [in my case: taking an expensive subscription on a pay channel 3times a year when back to back Masters which I cancel within the first month to avoid 1year contract]

I'vee got Eurosport Asia/Pacific here in Australia. I am a big sports fan in general so I love it but the only thing I hate about it is there is always fkn WTA and some atp. Maaan I wish it was the other way around. Also there is absolutely no coverage of TMS events :mad:

I have no Fox Sports :o which has the Main events (grand slams and TMS tournies) but hardly any regular ATP tournies.

Many European countries show AMS on pay-TV, in some other countries there isn't even a way to get AMS coverage on pay TV. So it's hopeless that Eurosport would show it on free TV.

I think here we are the most fortunte:we have Eurosport(3GS+Queens, Viena, etc)and 3 other sportchannels:Sport.ro(Wimbledon),Telesport(all the MM tournements around+Davis Cup)and SportKlub(Masters Series)
The problem in Romania is the football. All the channels (except maybe Eurosport)are capable do cut every(and I mean every)transmition or broadcast to show football.
Guess what was broadcasting SportKlub when Nadal was trushed by Federer in Hamburg?
And if the Madrid final does not begin at 07.00 PM CET guess what are they broadcasting live?
All the above are for about 10EUROS monthly but sometimes I feel such a frustration!
I don't like to see taped tennis, it's feeling strange to cheer up for a player when all has been played already!
