I am just going on what I know, so please excuse me if it is wrong: I understand that Eurosport France is showing ATP tennis from Lyon this week.
I don't know if they will be showing the first match on Centre court tomorrow (which is Coetzee/Wassen vs Erlich/Ram), but if they are, and someone is able to record it, I would be so grateful. I can offer £ or exchange, although I have a limitied selection.
Please let me know, thanks. Of course there is always a chance that they will not show doubles. Ok, a huge chance.

They have announced the OOP and given the scheduled coverage for tomorrow. Live coverage will begin only at 14pm. They're also showing Linz and Basel this week. So it's a bit complicated when you wanna see some matches in particular. But definitely no chance we get that match you wanna have.

They only show singles. Tomorrow, they start at 15.30
YEs, a bit complicated this week, especially when you have several players in both tournaments. But, the coverage is good for once on Eurosport.

You'll never see doubles on tv except for DC on any French channel.

And you buy that? :rolleyes: That's a catch 22. They use this to justify not showing doubles so their popularity decrease, less people know about it and learn to like this discipline etc...when actually, doubles IS popular.

In France, it's not popular.. Personally, I watch doubles in the tournaments, but French don't show any doubles on tv, except DC

They did show the 2004 RG final Malisse/Rochus def. Llodra/Santoro but that was an exception !

I don't believe that. :shrug:

Or we can say that it's not "interesting" financially for the French medias !!
