These are supposed to be premier events yet seeded players are on court and there is no TV coverage. What a joke. Nadal and Djokovic on court today/tonight; Justine vs Lena D on the WTA side and none of it is on TV. And it's not even on tennistv.com, which is for paying customers. :roll:

Coverage starts tomorrow.

Coverage for Indian Wells was EXCELLENT between Tennis Channel and Fox Sports, the best its been in YEARS.

i hate how the us is so stupid, last week instead of showing indian wells, they were showing these ******** golf players play there little stupid games, i cant see tennis on normal tv, and when i do it is a blessing if it is a good match, thank god they make up for that in wimby,the french, and the us open, and cincy, those are the ones i remember seeing off cable

I can understand that Golf is popular because it requires 2 things, a set of working hands and legs (I guess you could swing from the cart), which most people possess.

I don't know how people can man the attention span to watch it

Coverage starts tomorrow.

I completely missed this -- I was looking for coverage on Tennis Channel, which doesn't start until Sunday night. But my Fox Sports affiliate lists it as being on today, tonight, and tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon.

I do wonder why there's no early round coverage, though -- I would have loved to have seen some of yesterday's matches.

This surprised me that even the ATP didn't provide a feed for yesterday's matches, and considering what happened, I bet at least a few of them are kicking themselves.
