Possible Tennis Channel coverage

I've been reading a lot of articles that are claiming that the Tennis Channel has obtained rights to the Family Circle Cup and that there will be a mid-April release date. Could we be getting some coverage from the FCC off the Tennis channel?

There were rumours of it opening earlier, but it didn't.

ESPN has the rights to FCC, not the org but the tourney.

Williams x2 Clijsters Golovin Ivanovic Li Jackson
Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

S'posedly due to debut at the Monte Carlo masters series event, April 14-20 2003.

I'm grown wary of Tennis channel press releases. Believe it when you see it.

ESPN had an article suggesting that 'ole Pistol Pete might be in the booth.
