As far as I know coverage starts at 7am & 4pm pacific time, but I can't find out how long the coverage will be. I work all day tomorrow and need to set the vcr to tape these matches. Anyone know the exact time coverage begins and ends. Thanks...
3 hours for the morning session, which will be immediately followed by NBC's coverage. I believe the afternoon session is only 2 hours. Both will be on ESPN2.

This is what I got from tennis.com:
Sunday, June 27: ESPN2 4-7 a.m. (T); NBC 1-4 p.m. (T); ESPN2 7-9 p.m. (T)
ESPN is showing Roddick now. Hmm, let me guess, then Serena, Venus, Capriati and maybe Hewitt vs Ivanisevic.

the 4-7 am was the highlights show repeat, that's not "new" tennis. ESPN2 will have special coverage from 10am-1pm eastern, not sure if it'll be live but it's play from Sunday.
