    I like watching men's atp tour on tennis channel but how come tennis channel shows atp tour majority of the time (well right now seems like 100% of the time).. and never divide it to show women's wta tour.. I'm a guy and I like watching females play, (especially when they get frustrated and talk to themselves.. it's cute to watch).

    I'm not really sure. A good part of it may be just that mens tennis is more popular.

    Im not sure but I think the the wta sony ericsson open tour is only sold as a package to broadcasters. If this is true, broadcasting single events from WTA SE is really expensive.

    Eurosports(my source for tennis) has AO,RG,USO+wta tour. They only show few atp events in a year(dubai semis+final,valencia). Ive really wondered why they cant divide the competitions, with all this equity crap between men and women. This is the reason I think Sony Ericsson has some stupid package contract. Eurosport bought the wta crap and now we dont have atp at all.

    I'd like to go on the record as saying that I'd rather watch WTA tennis than squash, raquetball, or pin pong any day.
