http://www.sportsmediainc.com/tennisweek/index.cfm?func=showarticle&newsid=14528&bannerregion=ESPN2 Announces Australian Open Schedule
By Tennis Week

Amassing almost enough talent to stock its own qualifying draw and planning, ESPN2 will enliven its Australian Open telecasts. ESPN2 will commence its Australian Open coverage on Sunday, January 15th at 7 p.m. Eastern time with live action from Melbourne. ESPN2 plans to televise 91 hours of Australian Open coverage, including 51 hours of live tennis, during the two-week tournament.

In a Melbourne milestone, ESPN2 will televise both semifinals live, with each replayed on tape later the same day, and present live coverage of both the men's and women's finals.

The women's championship match will be televised on Friday, January 27th starting at 9:30 p.m. The men's final will air live on Sunday, January 29th at 3:30 a.m. Eastern time (late Saturday at 12:30 a.m. Pacific time). The men's final will be re aired Sunday starting at noon.

ESPN's voice of tennis Cliff Drysdale, Dick Enberg and Tim Ryan will again call matches on ESPN2's Grand Slam coverage in 2006, accompanied by analysts Mary Carillo, Mary Joe Fernandez, Brad Gilbert and Patrick McEnroe. In Australia, Chris Fowler will serve as on-site host, with Suzy Kolber sharing the hosting duties with Fowler at the French Open and at Wimbledon. Luke Jensen, who has served as a roving reporter at Wimbledon, will also fill that role at the Australian Open.

ESPN2 plans to produce 300 hours of coverage from the three Grand Slam tournaments it televises — the Australian Open, Roland Garros and Wimbledon (ESPN does not own broadcast rights for the U.S. Open).

Tennis fans can tune into a double shot of Australian Open coverage throughout much of the Melbourne fortnight as ESPN2's Australian Open coverage will generally consist of two shows each day: live coverage in the evening starting Sunday, January 15th at 7 p.m. and same-day programming in the afternoon. The schedule is similar to 2005, but many time slots have been lengthened and the network plans to televise more than the 76 hours of coverage it provided from Australia in 2005.

Also, ESPN Deportes, the full time Spanish-language American network, will again provide coverage beginning with the quarterfinals.

Last year's Australian Open women's final match is ESPN2's highest-rated and most-viewed tennis telecast ever, with a 1.5 rating and an average of 1,350,000 households. Serena Williams defeated top-seed Lindsay Davenport 2-6, 6-3, 6-0 to claim her second Australian Open championship and seventh career Grand Slam trophy.
