McEnroe: Coria Will Take Roland Garros Title
By Tennis Week
05/25/2005

John McEnroe has seen the next Roland Garros champion — on the court in the 2004 final. The 1984 French Open finalist believes 2004 Roland Garros runner-up Guillermo Coria will take home the title at the conclusion of the French fortnight.

"What I think might happen is that Federer and Nadal will beat up on each other in the semifinal and let Coria in through the back door to win the title he should have won last year," McEnroe said.

NBC Sports’ coverage of Roland Garros begins Saturday at noon Eastern time and concludes with live coverage of the women's and men's finals next Saturday and Sunday, June 4th and 5th — a total of 17 hours in all.

Host Ted Robinson takes a break from his role as the play-by-play voice of the New York Mets and anchors NBC's coverage, accompanied by analysts John McEnroe, Mary Carillo and Bud Collins. This is Robinson's sixth French Open for NBC, McEnroe's 14th, Carillo's third and Collins' 24th.

On the women's side, McEnroe sees the winner emerging from the potential Maria Sharapova-Justine Henin-Hardenne quarterfinal match.

NBC Roland Garros Schedule

Saturday, May 28th, noon-3 p.m. Eastern time — Third and Fourth Round
Sunday, May 29th, 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Eastern time — Third and Fourth Round
Friday, June 3rd, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. (all time zones) — Men's Semifinals
Saturday, June 4th, 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Eastern time — Women's Final
Sunday, June 5th, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Eastern time — Men's Final

ESPN2, ESPN Classic Plans Record Roland Garros Coverage
By Tennis Week
05/17/2005

Roland Garros will reach American audiences as an instant classic. ESPN Classic will televise the French Open for the first time, offering live daily coverage from Paris starting at 5 a.m. Eastern time during the first week of the French fortnight. ESPN2 will also provide daily coverage throughout the French fortnight.

The 2005 Roland Garros begins on Monday. To view the Roland Garros Television schedule, please click this TV Schedule link.

ESPN2 and ESPN Classic's combined coverage schedule includes an unprecedented 109.5 hours from Roland Garros, including 80.5 hours of live coverage. Last year, ESPN networks scheduled 88 hours of coverage and aired a total of 99 hours of coverage from Roland Garros.

The network's decision to air its entire Australian Open coverage exclusively on ESPN2 — rather than bounce back and forth between ESPN and ESPN2 as it had done in prior years — paid dividends as ESPN2's live coverage of Serena Williams' 2-6, 6-3, 6-0 victory over top-seeded Lindsay Davenport in the Australian Open final registered a 1.5 rating and was viewed in an average 1.35 million households making it ESPN2's highest-rated and most-viewed tennis telecast in history. Five of ESPN2's top six-rated telecasts in history occurred during the 2005 Australian Open.

Tennis fans tired of the network's propensity to air compelling matches on tape-delay in previous years. ESPN executives said the move to ESPN2 and ESPN Classic enables the network to televise more live tennis. It may also aid a ratings rise as fans won't have to channel surf to find the French Open.

"The move to ESPN2 — and utilizing ESPN Classic on weekday mornings — allows us to bolster our schedule to better serve tennis fans with what they crave: more live tennis," said Mark Shapiro, ESPN executive vice president, programming and production. "In a very short time we have established ESPN2 as America's tennis destination network — The Grand Slam Network."

Planned highlights for the French fortnight include:

Each weekday through the quarterfinals on Wednesday, June 1st, fans will be treated to at least nine hours of continuous live coverage.

ESPN2 will televise both women's semifinals live Thursday, June 2nd and one men's semifinal Friday, June 3rd.

A nightly highlights show (90 minutes or two hours) will be aired on ESPN2 for the first 12 days of the tournament, through Friday, June 3rd.

The tournament will again conclude with one-hour SportsCenter at the French Open specials on ESPN2 immediately following NBC's coverage of the women's final on June 4th and the men's final on June 5th.

Multi-Emmy Award winner Dick Enberg, who completed his career Grand Slam at the Australian Open in January, will call his 19th French Open, along with Cliff Drysdale and Tim Ryan, analysts Mary Carillo, Mary Joe Fernandez, Brad Gilbert, Patrick McEnroe and Pam Shriver. Shriver will also frequently be utilized as a roving reporter covering play in "outer courts" and the scene around the grounds of Roland Garros. Chris Fowler and Suzy Kolber will share on-site host duties. Also, Kit Hoover, seen over the last two years as a co-host on ESPN2's Cold Pizza and as a judge on Dream Job, will join the ESPN tennis team as a features reporter, focusing on topics off the court and around Paris.

ESPN Classic's presentations will be distinguished by an added emphasis on the great history at Roland Garros, with vignettes highlighting great moments in French Open history and excerpts from pertinent episodes of the Emmy Award-winning SportsCentury series.

Re: ESPN2, ESPN Classic Plans Record Roland Garros Coverage

Somebody's an optimist if they think F***ESPN will actually show tennis. It's usually selling deodorant & pornography - at least in America. Latin Americans are lucky - you get to see real tennis, we're stuck w/the trash. Every match of the people you never wanted to see in the first place - Wms(es), Roddick, Agassi - of whom I've seen enough - & ShriekerBitch. I'd watch paint dry before I'd watch any of them... While in Latin America, they get to see Federer, Coria, Safin, the Belgians & anything else interesting that a tennis lover would actually want to see. (And it's broadcast in English.)

In this age of vcr's I don't give a damn if they put the good stuff on to fill the overnight hours. I'd be delighted to set the tape to run from 1-8am. Show the pornography in prime time, but for god's sakes re-run the ESPN Latin American feed that you already have in the can in your off hours. It's not fair.

And they are only showing ONE MENS SEMIFINAL??? CHRIST - And they wonder why they are the MOST HATED NETWORK in America. Why don't JMac, Mary, PMac, etc. get together a company to buy the rights, put it on USA & do it right. They invariably know which are the interesting matches & which are just the names, or even worse merely the Americans,as if someone cared. There aren't any Americans to watch now. Okay, fine, that's the way it is - now let's watch interesting tennis. Don't show Roddick just 'cuz he's American when his tennis is a one-dimensional bore. They didn't even show Safin-O. Rochus @AO, and Safin never even broke Rochus' serve. Mary & John would have known to show that. Hell, they didn't even show Roger-Guga last yr. The guys making the decisions @ESPN don't know or care anything about tennis & it shows. I'll believe someone there has grown a brain when I see it.

Re: U.S. Roland Garros t.v. schedule

At least they're going to have more live coverage. Hopefully they'll show good matches and not just the Americans.

Join the crowd. I think this is a trend, sadly, with ESPN moving tennis from its most watched and most available channel (ESPN) to ESPN2 and now to Classic, which many viewers don't get, unless they pay for an expensive digital package. I'd have to lay out another $50 a month for it. I think that in a few years, tennis will only be on ESPN Classic.



C'mon, Lleyton!

Re: U.S. Roland Garros t.v. schedule

It's ridiculous that ESPN has overdone the locals coverage so much that you're hoping they fuck off early out of the tournament.
