NEWS AND COMMENTARY ON WOMEN'S PROFESSIONAL TENNIS
Sounds like you might have actually seen some women's tennis.Here is Australia, all we got was the ATP matches
When I found out it wasn't live, I didn't even care to watch. They showed pieces of several matches, ATP and WTA. I imagine that today, at least whatever is shown will be live.
I found it funny last week how several USA TODAY articles essentially made the point that this important Indian Wells/Miami stretch of two-week, non-slam events is the time when tennis is possibly most visible outside of the slams. Oh, yeah?(At least Dish Network provided additional channels to handle the spillover, since local sports coverage was aired on the "normal" FSN affiliate in Washington D.C.)And, really, FSN? What, was Versus' schedule too full? With all the NCAA basketball coverage, I can understand ESPN not carrying Indian Wells. But FSN? How can the Powers That Be justify not having the early rounds of these events on Tennis Channel? What's it there for then?
I'm wondering what kind of financial machinations went on, Todd. FSN...really. It's not even a real network, and its regions apparently are required to show only a minimum of Indian Wells (and, I presume, Miami).
