Anyone know why Eurosport is showing Dubai matches today, but over the weekend has very delayed transmission of Dubai, whilst they have Scottsdale semis and final live? They don't show the Dubai final until Monday morning :rolleyes:

Given that this tournament is much bigger, and has a much more interesting draw (even now!), this seems a bit crazy. But I guess that's ES for you ;)
