Stuttgart TV Schedule for Brits?

Is there ANY TV coverage for the British viewers of this tournament?

I used to have German TV (inc. DSF) with the old Sky - so there was lots of tennis on then, but this digital one only gives Sky Sports and British Eurosport - a BIG disappointment most of the year. I mean, Sky Sports isn't too bad as we at least see the Masters Series, but Eurosport is hopeless. Only the French and Australian Open and the occassional *highlights*. It's pathetic for the amount of money we SKY viewers pay.

I did cheekily ask Sky if we would get a tennis channel and they said there is no plans. But they've given us a Golf channel (nowt wrong with that), but we have constant Football...even though there is a channel dedicated to that sport. Its a real pain - the lack of tennis that is *sigh*

Oh well... Rant over

Just wondered if there was any coverage at all. I wish I had the old Sky again....

oh yeah, the Masters coverage is grand :) So a big :worship: to Sky Sports for that. But I want more :rolleyes: And moving to America for the tennis channel just seems very extreme and expensive :lol:

Well this is true :) See, it's not ALL doom and gloom :lol: I'm sure there is people out there willing to exchange matches on DVD or video. I'm mainly interested in this tourny for Rafa Nadal and (if he is playing there) The Scud :p I know people who will make copies if they get coverage, so its all good. Would be nice to see LIVE tennis though, huh? Still, only two weeks to go for the Toronto event... :)

Sadly again no tennis at all on Sky Sports or British Eurosport for the coming week :( I just checked the schedule now.
