    Too bad you don't live in the UK - with SKY TV, you'd get pretty much every Slam and every Masters tournament all year!

    =) Starsports broadcast Wimbledon, Australian Open, French Open and all the Masters Series. And we got another channel Supersport to cover the US Open. =)

    Yeah, I only watch EuroSport while I'm in Europe! Except sometimes it's in English, Greek, or German. They do show a lot of tennis and a lot of soccer (football).

    Yeh UK is ok for the big tourneys on TV. You get AO on eurosport,FO and wimby on BBC and USO on skysports(well thats who had it in '06,dunno about this year),masters series on skysports.eurosport does a couple of other tourneys aswell(e.g.dubai),but its mainly womens tennis.

    Truth. Eurosport's commentary is also much better than the BBC.

    Eurosport are pretty good as they often have the weekends play from the smaller ATP tournaments.

    I don't like Eurosport when it comes to the Majors as they show more womens tennis than mens. BBC interactive is loads better for the Australian, French and Wimbledon and Sky do a great job with the US Open.

    We obviously watch a different Eurosport. I got the German one, and they show ONLY WTA unless a Slam is being played. But they do show quite a big amount of poker, snooker, nordic skiing...oh the joy! :rolleyes:

    Ahh that could be the case. We have British Eurosport and they seem to always show Murray (who's been making the latter stages of tournaments alot) we also seem to get alot of coverage from tournaments in Europe.

    A quick look at the schedule shows that we get the Estoril semi's and final this week which is pretty nice.

    Eurosport sucks; when we had all those great past legends, Navratilova, Graf and Seles, they hardly aired it, yet we were subjected to all men's matches, even the ****ty ones. Now, all of a sudden they air women's matches (todays women suck) all the times and hardly the good men's matches.

    Also the Dutchy comentary sucks, can't shut up.
