Good to see the terrible TV coverage in USA continues...

No coverage during the live Dimitrov-Anderson match.

Tennis Channel was showing Citi Open replays and Tennisography.

ESPN is showing Little League World Series on ESPN2 when Tennis is in the TV guide. They're showing a replay of Around the Horn on ESPNNews, the channel they usually temporarily show live programming until ESPN and ESPN2 open up.

ESPN is showing sports center.

One good thing about Milos and others in Canada is that tennis is on TV like 12 hours/day now lol. They show almost everything. I remember 10-15 years ago they showed almost NOTHING. Heck in the 90s, you'd be lucky if they showed the French Open or Australian Open finals! Even then they were taped delayed and edited down to 2 hours and shown at 2 in the morning 2 weeks after it happened lol.

ESPN's contract should be canceled and given to TC

This is true. I don't particularly like Milos, but I get to watch a LOT of tennis now that I never did before Raonic.

Espn is more interested in little league baseball, then tennis. They should stay with that nonsense, and get out of tennis altogether.

Be happy you don't live where I live, OP.
There used to be a rather decent offering over here on Sport1 (pay TV), but unfortunately the contract with ATP got assigned to Fox, and the coverage went down even more.

Tennis fans are completely dependent on streams over here. Sucks!

Between Sky, Eurosport, BT Sport, BBC & ITV the tennis coverage here in the UK is pretty outstanding. All day coverage of all the slams on multiple channels, all the masters, the 500s, some of the 250s, the tour finals, Davis Cup, WTA. BBC even shows wheelchair and legends matches during Wimbledon.

Can't really complain.

I loved loved loved how the Federer - Ferrer match was not aired in the US.

I was told by ESPN to go to WATCHESPN app to see it where I was promptly informed that my TV subscriber does not offer access to their service.

Luckily I was able to get on my computer and watch it on ESPN3.com

Besides that I have also appreciated the priority of little league baseball running over into the tennis air time. Nothing is more important than watching 12 year olds play baseball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really wish "murica" was not dominated by fat lazy American men that want to drink beer, grill meat, and watch the same lame @ss sports over and over again.
 
Yeah, I was pretty shocked to find out that ESPN only just started their coverage of the Rogers Cup this weekend. I thought they always had tennis fans covered for at least all the Grand Slams and Masters 1000 events! Here in Canada we get every Grand Slam on TSN, every Masters 1000 on Sportsnet, plus other 500 events (Hamburg, Washington) and even 250 events (Halle) on Sportsnet.

It's a dream for a Canadian tennis fan.

I hooked my computer up to a monitor, did the "expanded desktop" or whatever option, and now I just watch the pirated live feed from Sky or Tennistv etc. I don't know how that's legal or why it isn't shut down, but it's almost as good as tv.

Uh, ESPN writes bigger checks.

I'm starting to think I need to get unlimited broadband. Even though I agree with you, it's obvious that 'over the internet' is the future.
