3 Comments for 2012 US Open Tennis Schedule: CBS, Tennis Channel, ESPN2

evie Says:

The CBS Sports Network is also carrying some of the coverage.


Colin Says:

Evie, just at the moment it’s the courts that need some coverage!

Since I am looking forward to Murray doing well – I hope! – I don’t like to say this, but…

I’d like to see this entire tournament wiped out by the weather. Perhaps if that happened, the powers that be would at last be forced to take some real solid decisions.


Sandra brown Says:

I would much rather watch an American play than Maria S. The Russian, at nite when I am able to sit down and enjoy it when I am paying for it.
