13 Comments for 2013 Australian Open TV Schedule: ESPN2, Tennis Channel

Matt Hill Says:

If only the French Open had a schedule like this.

Ben Pronin Says:

And for everyone else who doesn’t have tennis channel?

cindy bennett Says:

I can only sympathise with those who don’t have a
tennis channel. I added a sports package to my
Pay T.V. yesterday and I will get to see every
match for the two weeks for $20. There is a GOD.

Jonathan @ peRFect Tennis Says:

Pity they don’t put it on terrestrial TV. Would get more kids into it for sure!

There are zero matches on the BBC this year until the final. Terrible really.

courbon Says:

@Jonathan; You are absolutely right!When I was a kid I use to watch McEnroe and Connors battling it out while eating sunnday lunch…I would understand if there is no place for sport because of the history, education, drama programs…but with all reality TV and endless cooking and renovation programs?Give me break…I guess, sport became big bussiness (like a music years ago)-you have to pay…

alison Says:

Courbon the only tennis available here in GB on terestrial TV is Wimbledon in summer,all the rest of the GS and other tourneys are all on sky tv,its the ony reason i got sky tv for was the sport,it costs me 60 pound extra a month,apart from the sport i dont watch much else as its all a load of crap.

alison Says:

Oh and queens club tennis,thank god for the age of the internet.

Craig Allan Says:

I thought nester was part of one of the best double teams ever?

chanel lugo Says:

I find it hard to believe all the hype thats being said about Maria and how well she’s doing.She has’nt played anyone really but Venus and that always seems to happen with Maria.It seems that tennis is setup to keep her in the tournament longer.Not saying that the ladies she’s playing are’nt good but you guys make it easy for her. Also I think its unfortunate that she’s allowed to scream like that, how on earth could anyone concentrate.She’s doing it from start to finish.maybe if she stops screaming the entire tournament she could catch her breath long enough to win without the matches being fixed for her.Granted the most of them scream but not like that. Azeranka does it also.Its unfair to the opponent and the fans.Your real tennis Queens are Azeranka,S Williams and several more.If you guys want Sherapova to be a true champion let her earn it dont give it to her.Watching a Sherapova match is like watching a Wwf wrestling match.

chanel lugo Says:

World #1 Azarenka /// The real #1 Serena

MAEibank Says:

I do not believe Williams ankle picture was a pick of her ankle…looked to me like a knee…she would be a docs if it was really that bad…match was the worse I have ever seen Williams play…Stephens was given a gift or a thrown match?

Emiga Says:

For those who have no access to Tennis Channel, you can access the matches, both live and replays on ESPN3.coom. Good luck and enjoy!

Peter Says:

does anyone know when the Australian Open men’s final was first played at night? And when was the first time the final game was televised on commercial television?
