Patrick Mouratoglou, he owns a tennis academy in France where Dimitrov and Chardy train.

ATP 1000 and 500 are impossible, but 250 tournaments would make sense. And they are sold individually. It would just seem so odd if they would show just three Slams. The biggest tournaments in tennis, but nothing else.

spot on. I hate eurosport. Shoving in commercials every chance they get; switching halfway during a good match because Sharapova will blow another clueless teenager offcourt and that is more interesting .

Really, it can't get any worse, just as long as it will still be televised.

The whole WTA is a mugfest, not just the clay season. Three hours of pushing and all that other nonsense. But I have no clue what the WTA is thinking. They won't get a better partner than Eurosport. No major network is gonna pay for that anything special. If the WTA executives think they can get a good deal, they are 10 years too late.

Roland Garros (UK Eurosport, ITV)
Wimbledon (BBC)
US Open (Sky, UK Eurosport)

Sky also show all Masters series events, Rotterdam, Tokyo and Dubai.
Yes, my list was correct then. Eurosport has three. That's two more than Sky and ITV. I wouldn't call that shitting. US Open rights are obviously pretty weak at the US Open. But the rest of Europe gets Ashe and Armstrong from start to finish live.

On a another note while we are laughing at Eurosport. This thread is titled Eurosport Loses Roland Garros TV rights. Yeah, sure did.

And maybe they'll push for the ATP rights in 2014! That means Bradnam will commentate all the Masters 1000 and Grand Slam finals for years to come. And he would be the GOAT commentator.
Great news. After Henin retired, the WTA clay season has been an utter mugfest every year. All WTA players should be relegated to outside courts during RG, until at least one of them learns how to properly slide, move and hit with spin, rather than mindlessly ballbashing like they do on hard courts.

Besides, how will they fill the missing hours? Armwrestling and some wrestling from the 80's?

And what I know of, Eurosport is pretty different in different countries. Eurosport Germany is different than Eurosport Portugal. And so is Eurosport Scandinavia, or British Eurosport.

Good example is the US Open. Apparently the Brits get a only the first week live, when the rest of Europe gets the whole two weeks. A huge difference, but the same channel.

TigerTim: Does ITV shit on Eurosport in Australia and US Open? And does BBC shit on them during US Open? Or does Sky Sports shit on them during RG? Or is it so that only Eurosport shows those three Slams?

And by the way I'm just guessing here. I don't have some Portuguese Eurosport commentators as my buddies.

Besides, how will they fill the missing hours? Armwrestling, rock-paper-scissors and some wrestling from the 80's?
