Muguruza: Women's game deserves more TV

HONG KONG – Former world No 1 Garbine Muguruza on Monday called for greater television coverage of women’s tennis, as the game battles to recover from allegations of sexism that erupted at the US Open.

The Spaniard, who is struggling to end a slump that has seen her slip to No 15 in the world, welcomed a new five-year deal the WTA has signed with the Tennis Channel in the US, which aims to boost coverage and attract more viewers to the women’s game.

“I think it’s great; I think the more tennis we see is good,” the double Grand Slam champion said as she prepared for her debut match at the WTA Hong Kong Open.
