taken this from another site - most you will probably have seen it.

The BBC have been contacted and have confirmed that the Aberdeen Cup is 'not on their sports schedules'. Contrary to reports from a few weeks ago.
Therefore, if you don't have sky you can't watch it.

I for one am gutted.

Shocking, you would think they would show it on BBC 2 or something, its rediculous, this is two home nations playing each other, as well as two singles matches between Andy and Greg. Surely they shouldput those matches on, considering they showed the Tim vs Andy match?
So some of us will just have to follow it on the internet, which is rather annoying Frown

personally i never saw anything that confirmed that the bbc are thinking about showing it.. but i did think there could be some chance, obviously not!  Evil or Very Mad i think this is also ridiculous!! ...yea ok, they don't have to show the doubles, fair enough.. some might prefer some stupid reality program.. but Andy vs Greg.. c'mon!!!  :x  i swear british TV has something against tennis!  Crying or Very sad

I'd be fairly suprised if they don't show at least Andy vs Greg but then again, in the BBC's mind, Andy has already proven he is the british no1 therefor lowering the interest in him taking on the british no2.

I do honestly think they should put it on. Maybe we should start a petition and send it to the BBC :-) (not that that would work lol)
also would any sites have livescoring for it?
hmmm :Idea: maybe ill have to move in  with a friend for the week :-)
