    I don't understand why FSN (or MSG+) doesn't televise tennis today - March 30th. The other days they have coverage. Only the Tennis Channel is covering matches today - and I don't get the Tennis Channel - lots of people don't get that channel. I am disappointed I can't see the Ferrer/Nadal match.

    Also, why does CBS only allot 2 hours to tennis on Sat. and Sunday for the Finals? Most men's finals matches take longer than 2 hours - yet, CBS only has tennis from 1-3 p.m.

    I share your frustrations but on the opposite side of the coin. My local FSN station must consider tennis to be obsolete, because they show no tennis whatsoever (excpet for maybe 1 or 2 quarterfinals).

    So I am very happy Tennis Channel has at least received some broadcast rights this year. I wish Tennis Channel would just show all of the tournament along side whichever other station.

    FSN is just too lackluster with its commitment depending on which area you live in...

    Our cable company doesn't even offer FSN - not even on the sports tier.
