I would like to watch the whole tourny not hal..  Completely agree ... it's so disappointing. Already as a non Sky viewer, I am limited as to which tournaments are shown on BBC, so having th ATP Final in London, I would have expected the BBC to air ALL the matches.

    It's crazy, but obviously financial.

    I'm just hoping that Andy Murray is in the first semi-final tomorrow. Otherwise I won't be able to watch it as I don't have Sky Sports.

    What kind of deal is that, when the BBC only shows half a tournament. smiley - steam

    Yes, it's really annoying. I've just started a thread enquiring why the final isn't being shown at all on the Beeb.

    I know that the Final will be on BBC 3, but it's coverage of the semi-finals which is bothering me.

    The BBC appears to be only covering the earlier semi today but, unfortunately, Andy Murray is in the later one (according to BBC News this morning), and this one is being covered by Sky, which I don't have. I don't see the point of only showing half a championship. It's very frustrating for tennis fans.

    We just have to hope that Murray reaches the Final tomorrow.

    Not only is the Murray match on Sky, but so is the GB doubles with Marray & Nielson on in the evening .... aaaargh, so frustrating!

    It's almost inconceivable that the BBC couldn't "afford" to buy the rights to air ALL the matches, especially in the latter stages!

    Can you imagine the uproar if the BBC treated football competitions in this shoddy manner?

    I know there will probably be online streaming, but my pc has a very small screen and my eyesight can't cope with it.
