Are they playing both men's semi's on Centre Court or one of the semi's on Court One?

Also, what is the American television schedule? Does NBC have tv rights to all the matches or can ESPN2 show some play tomorrow?

Did I hear Federer and Gasquet are playing at 11am local time?

NBC has telcast right for tommorow's matches. So they will show women's final live followed by mens semi-final tape delayed. (in case the first semi-final isn't completed by 9:00 am you might catch some ending of that match live.)

In the official website has not scheduled yet but BBC says Federer-Gasquet will be the first match at 12:00 P.M UK Time (so 1:00 CET) and Nadal-Djokovic will come after that.

Now we have to choose one of the 2 semis to watch since they are played at the same time :(

I cannot believe NBC won't be broadcasting until 9 am.

Thank God for the Wimbledon website I guess.

In the UK we have a choice between the 2 with BBCi so we can change between them :banana:

I've been searching to see if either NBC or ESPN will come on the air earlier than scheduled to show some of the men's matches live. Has anyone found that info, or is it just wishful thinking on my part that they would want to cover some live tennis?

Yeah, that's the bad thing about this scheduling... especially when one is truly interested in how BOTH matches will develop. :mad:

I'm wondering if they'll start the women's final while Nadal/Djokovic is still going on if it goes long.

It would only be sensible to schedule one semi at 12 and the next 3 .. they could still overlap, but at least there is hope of watching both AND there is no chance that either wouldn't end before dark.

I mean COMMON FREAKING SENSE YOU BLOODY BRITS. Common freaking sense.

The winner of the first semi would have more recovery time, hence an advantage against his final opponent coming from the later semi. That is the biggest problem of Super Saturday in the US Open but of course having both semifinals on AA stadium means more revenue from TV broadcasts.

The earliest the women's final will start appears to be 2pm.

If this is the worst problem you have right now, you have a very blessed life.

The scheduling is fair to the players, they start at the same time and could finish near the same time, allowing all things to be relatively equal for the final on Sunday.

That is all fine and dandy for you to say, but tennis is my escape from other very real stresses in life and I think it sucks that both men's semis will be played concurrently! Especially with the NBC coverage completely massacring matches they way that they do!

Of course I do agree that it is fair. But it still sucks!!!:banghead:
