    Does anyone know how many courts will they show during Roland Garros? Will they only show Chartrier and lenglen or is there coverage from court 1 and others as well. I am thinking of subscribing for a month for only £3.50 to watch online. I have Eurosport at home but they show womens' matches sometimes when guys like verdasco are playing and I can't stand it.

    Thanks in advance. :)

    I've been using Eurosport since last year. For this years AO, i think there was coverage of the RLA, Hysince Court, MCA and on a couple of others I think. But most of them have no commentry.

    But its great because you get to see some great matches on the outside court which you would not see on the tv i.e the amazing Gasquet/Gonzo match from this year.

    I'd definitley recommend, its well worth it

    Thanx m8 :). Its only £3.50 which is same as not eating a burger for a day. Well worth it. I'm hoping to watch Gaudio-stepanek and the Gulbis match.
    I'll give it a go.

    On a second thought, I just checked the BBC website and it said there will be live coverage online so now I don't know if I should bother to subscribe to Eurosport online. I love the BBC coverage online, They did a great job last Wimbledon.

    It works fine under Mac OS X, with Flip4Mac installed. Not sure about Linux, though.

    Ha! I thought there's some DRM crap that works only with Windows Media Player, but it really works with the Flip4Mac plugin. Tnx for the info.
