Starting at 7:00am eastern time. The only thing I am worried about is that we will miss out on the starting matches. Scheduled play begins at 6:00am eastern time.

The play on two first courts starts an hour later than on the other ones.

I hope they stick to that "all-live" part. It would be a first for them. :p

Even though I will be at work, I hope that ESPN do stick to the live part so I can pickup other poster observations.

really? usually centre court and court 1 begin at 1pm local time (which is 8am for the east coast of the US), and the outer courts begin at noon (7am E. USA), so ESPN usually starts 7am with one eye on their morning show with Sue Mott, and the other eye on the higher profile outer court matches, and at 8am they go full steam into court 1 and centre, run live through the schedule of play there, then go back on tape to whoever they think is most high profile starting at 2pm or 3pm, or whenever the OOP is over...

wimbledon coverage for ESPN the last few years has been much more solid than that of RG or AUS, which is why i'm glad TTC has joint coverage for those 2 events now...

It sux that Tennis Channel isnt doing what they did for Roland Garros. I much preffered them over ESPN. ESPN is all about mens tennis/american tennis. And alot of it is "pre-packaged". Also, they only have 1 channel. TTC had 5 channels w/diffent courts.

They will show Roddick and Blake repeatedly so don't worry we won't see shit.
