    For crying out loud, how many tournaments are going on and there's absolutely NOTHING on TV?

    This is so so so sad.

    Time Warner Cable has a tennis channel, they show matches from Dubai.

    Is there any online broadcast from Memphis?

    Well it looks like TTC is showing Dubai semis tomorrow and the final on Saturday, and some Buenos Aires coverage later in the day on Saturday. Who knows why they couldn't show the earlier rounds, they've had crap on all week... showed repeats of last year's matches at the Tennis Channel Open...joy. At least you'll get a lot next week, when the '07 Tennis Channel Open is televised.

    Actually, it's TTC that i'm complaining about. The most re-runs of shows EVAR.

    You all will be very disappointed with TTC's programming for the most part. Re-runs of Center Court and Bragging Rights.

    But I'm sure when the right tournaments roll around, it'll be real nice.

    With the clay court season coming, i think you all will adore The Tennis Channel. You get extensive coverage of Monte Carlo, Rome and Hamburg Masters. And of course, the coming French Open.
    Enjoy =)

    Yes... I love when Masters Series are on because 22/24 hours a day will be coverage, since all the Tennis Channel has to offer is the same 3 episodes of Bragging Rights, the same few episodes of Destination Tennis, and a bunch of No Strings and Center Court.

    No Tennis on TV for me until late May when ESPN2 begins showing the French Open matches.

    The whole problem is that I pay $60 for digital cable to get the $3 sports package that has TTC.

    LOL yea it's expensive. :( The things we do to get TTC.

    Cheer up dude.. TTC will show the women's final of Memphis International, Dubai Championship, the men's final of Beaunos Aires. Aren't these enough to cheer you up? At least you get Henin vs Mauresmo :)

    There may be no TV, but this Challenger has Live Streamiing free!

    It really ticks me off that other tournamensts either don't have it or charge huge amounts of money to view when it obviously cost them nothing to provide it. And the players in the challenger are lots of names we know. Enjoy.
