Which is great because at means we get tennis live. And NBC is showing the singles finals live next weekend. But I'll still bitch about them as we get next to no swimming of gymnastics live.

All I saw of tennis today was 2 points of Roger's match when they showed highlights, not covering it at all unfortunately. Hopefully when Milos and Vasek plays tomorrow they might show some of it live

In the US, the Bravo Channel (subsidiary of NBC) is showing exclusively tennis for about 10 hours per day. MSNBC and NBC are also reporting on Olympics, with some tennis coverage.

Btw, why is badminton an Olympic sport, but not baseball or softball?

There are a lot of things that shouldn't be an Olympic sport before they got rid of Baseball and Softball. Not saying they're not Olympic worthy as for a lot of sports the Olympics is basically all ther is, then nobody cares about them for 4 more years. That's not the case with Baseball and to a lesser extent softball but they shouldn't have gotten rid of them

Badminton is big in Asia and has a lot of countries participation in the World Championships, not like baseball which is big in a select few countries and basically non-existent in the rest of the world. They dropped baseball and softball because of the "must be present in a lot of countries"-requirement. If they had two drop some more, badminton would not be the first to go.

I really think this argument is ridiculous. The sport is huge in Cuba, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Japan, the U.S., Taiwan, and South Korea. Plus it's popular enough to field competitive teams in Mexico, Canada and others. There are several sports in the Olympics where there's not this global reach and popularity, it's not like American football which is only popular in the U.S. The truth is that it's just not popular in Europe, and Europeans have dominated the leadership at the IOC so they decided to get rid of it.

It's because tennis doesn't belong in the Olympics.

archery is great! It will be over in a couple of days anyway
the BBC has dedicated 5 channels to cover tennis alone, so it's probably to do with the network that covers the Olympics in your country.
