BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) -- ESPN and ESPN2 will air more than 50 hours of live coverage of the French Open under a one-year agreement announced Thursday.
The networks also will have about 20 hours of taped coverage of the May 27-June 9 Grand Slam tennis tournament.
The deal includes both women's semifinals and one men's semifinal. NBC will air the other men's semi and both singles finals.
ESPN aired portions of the French Open from 1986-93. The tournament was on USA Network last year.
