According to a headline at www.tennisreporters.net (I don't subscribe so I can't read the full article) and a comment on the tennisweek forums, ESPN will not cover Indian Wells and Miami this year. Indian Wells will be covered by Fox Sports but that is not a national network, so the coverage will be all over the place. Hopefully its not too late for the Tennis Channel to get on board somehow, this is really going to suck for US tennis fans.

There's probably a darts tournament they need to broadcast.

This is what we get for feeling relatively warm and fuzzy about their Australian Open coverage.

This is why I didn't send ESPN a thank you email for the extended coverage of AO matches. :p :mad:

Re: No ESPN coverage for Indian Wells and Miami

It's more of a blurb than an article.....

It's official: ESPN dumped both Indian Wells (the Pacific Life Open) and Miami (the Sony Ericsson Open). The Pac Life will be shown by local Fox Sportsnet affiliates and the same goes for the SE until the finals when CBS comes in. As a Fox tennis columnist, I'm somewhat pleased, but Fox isn't sending their own crew, so it will be a collection of analysts picked by TWI, IMG's broadcasting arm. Justin Gimelstob is said to be in the mix. Hopefully, numerous Fox affiliates will pick up the action but how many is yet to be determined.

Re: No ESPN coverage for Indian Wells and Miami

That little blurb doesn't even mention that TTC will pick up anything they haven't shown in years' past (aka the first couple days before ESPN ever started coverage). if Fox picked up ESPN's rights, TTC won't increase their coverage. We'll have to wait and see about that I guess :shrug:

I predict by 2010 the only tennis ESPN will be showing is Wimbledon. :eek:

at least ESPN's tennis coverage is still better than their soccer coverage

FSC is the best...3 or 4 premiership games a week plus Serie A and FA Cup...there's an American network who knows how to please....the only thing ESPN does good is put on every Syracuse game

Boo... :sad:

The tennis channel seems to be having an adverse effect on ESPN's coverage.

But this has nothing to do with TTC that I've seen :confused: It seems to me like ESPN is dropping the coverage and it just happens now that TTC picks a lot of it up. But until I read that TTC is picking up IW and Miami, I will assume they haven't
