    Anyone know? Here in NYC, NBC covers 10AM to 1PM. Guess they'll show Fed-Nal?

    10 am in all time zones on NBC. It will be a taped delayed broadcast of Roger and David.

    Espn2 will show the second semi at 6pm et. NBC will reboradcast it at 1:00am in the morning.

    Thanks for that, MM . So Espn's posted TV schedule must be wrong as they have NBC airing the rebroadcast at 1am.

    is anyone else annoyed at the fact that NBC comes and messes everything up? It will be hard to wait to watch their tape delayed broadcast for me without looking at the results online. Why can't they show it live like ESPN? What a joke. And you always know if it will be a long match or not because they will start the match in progress or jump ahead in the middle. If they show all of it, you know its a quick match.

    i wasn't sure what was the problem.... NBC taking over coverage makes perfect sense.

    you know, we (me included) should always watch what we wish for. we complain about ESPN and TSN, but then look how screwed up it gets when another network gets involved... and let's hope nothing pre-empts the coverage.

    The worse part about this dual coverage is while waiting to watch the ESPN semi's (part 2) you don't dare watch the World Cup because you know they will blurt the FO semi results.

    overall, I've been happy with ESPN's coverage. I was particularly impressed the other morning when they came on extra early to show the Nadal/Hewitt match.

    I bet when NBC's contract with French Open expires ESPN with gobble it up to help get a complete monopoly on the GS tourneys.

    I don't recall NBC having the rights to the Fed Nadal matchup last year in the Semis...

    ESPN should attempt in the future to just some how buyout NBC's claim because do they not understand how terrible their coverage is?

    We have a great chance to watch two great semis matches live yet. . . I wasn't aware NBC had rights to semis I thought only weekends. . . what a pisser

    I think we should get rid of all the poor coverage both on NBC and ESPN. Let the tennis channel have a shot, or better yet whoever wants to cover the matches can, this is pretty bad coverage.

    Well, whatever network pays the money for the rights to broadcast gets it. We can't just wish the tennis channel would cover it, if they can't pay the bill.

    NBC's coverage just started, let me just try to understand this, instead of showing the 2nd live semi match, it's showing a rerun of the first? what the %^#*@^$*@)(... Tennis is the only one sports being broadcasted this way. I know that's maybe how the contract was structured but it exactly shows the incompetence of ATP and USTA (if USTA is even involved). Sad, these idiots are unable to prompt their sport like PGA is, and can't even negotiate TV contracts that don't shoot themselves in the foot.
