Will there be ANY coverage of the matches starting at 5 AM (here in the US)?

Coverage as in TV or online? Does anybody know?

I know "Wake Up To Wimbledon" starts at 6 over here, but what about the matches that start at 5?

I'd like to imagine that in order to beat me a person would have to play almost perfect tennis. - Venus Williams

I don't think ESPN contractually allowed to show matches before 8am est

Maybe there's some coverage at www.channelsurfing.net? I haven't checked as I bought the Wimby Live package.

It looks like there won't be any coverage for Americans between 6:00am and 7:00am EST except for wimbledon live. ESPN will most likely show the conclusion of the Venus match first and then live tennis after. I don't think any television station is prepared to cancel an hour of programming to make space for early Wimbledon matches.

The Williams Sisters

It's great to be a fan of the two most talented women in tennis.

Only IDIOTS count out the Williams sisters!!!
Serena: 13 Slams, ranked: #1
Venus: 7 Slams, ranked: #2
