Many WTA fans in the U.S. are feeling the same confusion that Serena Williams is feeling, and that is how does one watch women’s tennis on TV!

This year in the U.S., with the exception of Grand Slam and U.S. events, WTA tournaments are no longer being televised on the Tennis Channel. Instead, WTA matches from Madrid and Rome and others are being aired on beIN network which has limited distribution in the U.S.

It’s been so frustrating for so many, even Serena took issue in a tweet yesterday.

Serena did the get answer to her question, but the fact the best player on your tour doesn’t know where to watch events is not good.

Unfortunately, beIN has a deal with the WTA for the NEXT FIVE YEARS! So if you live in the U.S. and don’t have beIN, you’ll beOUT of watching the WTA.

Gregoire Gentil Says:

You should also mention that WTA ended the TennisTV.com partnership early this year. There is no offer to watch women tennis online too except the pirated streams.


Catherine Says:

Your decision to not show women’s match’s is doing nothing but hurting the interest in women’s tennis. If your trying to lose interest in the sport your doing a great job !!!


Pamela Says:

I have been wondering what’s going on with women’s tennis. The channel beIN.. I’m not sure if that’s the name. It definitely begins with the letter B. I have AT&T u-verse. The channel I’m talking about is right under the tennis channel (1660) I used to be able to get it. Now, I can’t. Although, when I was able to watch (back than it was both WTA and an occasional ATP match) sometimes they were in Spanish!! the channel shows a lot of soccer matches as well. I don’t even know if AT&T carries that channel. Why would the WTA do something like that? It has to loose them thousands of viewers.


Pamela Says:

Catherine – I completely agree. Only hurts women’s tennis
