Bianca Andreescu calls out TSN for not airing her Wimbledon match

Canadians wishing to watch Mississauga's very own Bianca Andreescu battle it out in her first round match at Wimbledon were left dissapointed yesterday.

Sports channel TSN informed its viewers that Andreescu's match would be "joined in progress" following the conclusion of one of two men's matches with Denis Shapovalov or Felix Auger-Aliassime.

The 22-year-old Canadian tennis star went on to call out TSN for not airing her Wimbledon match on any of their channels.

Andreescu took to Twitter and said, "sad to see Canadian fans tweeting about not being able to watch most of my first round match at Wimbledon."

She also took to her Instagram stories to air out her thoughts, asking "no problem for Denis or Felix tho?"

For many Canadian viewers, the only way to watch Andreescu in action was via TSN's website or app.

However, many people reported errors finding Andreescu's match on either platform.

Although TSN eventually went on to fix the error, many tennis fans were upset about the situation.

Others said after testing out multiple streaming links, they still couldn’t manage to find Andreescu’s.

TSN responded by saying that the entirety of the match wasn't shown due to "scheduling conflicts."

Some suggested that with all five channels TSN has, they could've shown Andreescu's match.

Other fans said they missed up to 90 per cent of Andreescu's match as a result of the broadcasting mishap.

Andreescu emerged victorious in her first round match, in a 6-1, 6-3 win over Emina Bektas.

The Canadian tennis star advances to the second round, where she will next face 17th seed Elena Rybakina of Kazakhstan.
