Sky's coverage of Henman Canas match?

Sky's coverage according to Digiguide doesn't start until Sunday but Tim's match against Canas is on tomorrow probably about 11pm. It should be a good match of contrasting styles of two motivated players. Plus Tims British so I need to cheer him on.

Has anyone heard whether Sky are going to show this?

I've sent them an email but don't expect a reply.

Thanks

There's no TV coverage, period, anywhere in the world, before Saturday.

I don't think there's even a feed Sky could get their hands on.

So, highly doubtful.

They complain not enough people are interested and watch tennis and then they don't even bother covering the first three days of an AMS.

What is the point of all the changes the ATP are making if fans can't watch when they want to.

Not a lot they can do when the host broadcasters who provide the feed aren't even showing anything before Saturday.

That doesn't, of course, explain why Sky aren't starting coverage until Sunday....but in the case of these first few days it is genuinely out of their hands.

Yes, Indian Wells and Miami's feed is always slightly delayed.........

Sorry should have been clearer by 'they' I meant ATP not Sky. I assumed that there are probably not even cameras on the courts until Sat for financial reasons.

Tim will need to play until he's 40 for the sake of the DC team or else Alex Bogdanovic will be the second singles player. :scared: :bigcry:
