10 Comments for 2011 US Open Tennis TV Schedule: ESPN2, CBS, Tennis Channel

Colin Says:

The BBC are pretty good with the slams; they cover the Australian, the French and of course Wimbledon.
As for me, I stopped watching television about six years ago, and I’ll be watching this USO online. It isn’t as good as a good TV picture, but it’s adequate. Tennis is essentially a simple game, and as long as you can see the lines and the ball, you’re OK.


Doug Says:

Don’t leave out DirecTV’s coverage with its mix channels on 701-707. You can watch various matches and not just what Tennis Channel, ESPN or CBS chooses to show you. It’s the best way to watch the slams on TV. And I agree with Colin. While I haven’t abandoned TV, you can more or less pick and choose the match you want to watch onlnie.


Will Novak Djokovic Win the US Open? Says:

[...] Tennis Channel has early coverage at 11am, then ESPN2 owns the rest from 1pm tomorrow. Click here for the complete US Open TV schedule for the US. [...]


barbara cass Says:

Chris is mistaken —Martina complained about Monica’s noise at Wimbledon. I think it cost Monica the match!!!


bfd Says:

ESPN2
So, you leave the Isner/Bagdadis match at 7-6, 7-6 to show Roddick/Russell. What were you thinking? You probably would just be happy showing Roddick/Blake matches. God help us if they ever play. That match would be replayed until every tennis fan in America would poke their eyes out. Roddick is no more. At least Isner has a future.


Esther Stulman Says:

The commentators at the tennis matches MUST STOP talking while the ball’s in play. Their commentary over the play is VERY distracting!!!


Holly H. Says:

How come Sharapova is allowed to screech once the ball has passed over the net to her opponents side?? At districts last month my tennis partner was called a let/hindrance upon because she talked to me when the ball was on our opponents side. Maria is so annoying and I can’t believe she gets away with this. Couldn’t her opponents call a “hindrance”?

Holly


Nicoh Says:

Martina has always been my favourite player, and I have loved to see her play for many years.
However, can she please stop talking for a while during the matches? we really do not need or want to hear every technical stroke detail and what the player should or should not have done. PLEASE


Joy Colizzi Says:

Evert, P. McEnroe, and Gilbert talk too way much especially when players are in the match. Restrict to between points and limit comments.


John Says:

Have to say Chrissy did a terrible job tonight. Patrick and Brad were quite good both in color and analysis. Brad, 1 out of 2 predictions … very entertaining and enjoyable. Also, congrats to patrick and Brad for putting up with Chrissy and not responding to her sophmoric comments.

It is easy to understand why Andy R. commented on “tennis analysts”. Chrissy takes it one step further she has no idea how she comes across to a tennis intelligent audience.
