Out of the all the television listings ive looked through.... I don't see any where that says ESPN, or anyone, will televise the mens Final in Cincy in the US.

Anyone have any info>??

Wow, I don't think CBS has ever aired the final of TMS Cincy before!

CBS?

I've never known them to televise LIVE tennis, it always seems to be on delay, so I'm wondering if they'll actually show it live or not. Maybe it's just been the times in the past when I've watched tennis on that channel, it's always tape delayed by quite some bit. It's too bad, because I like the live, LIVE action. ;)

I wouldn't have been able to find this information anywhere but this forum. Didn't even see 'CBS' listed on the tournament TV listings page.

That was NBC. I know CBS covered the final of TMS Canada in 2002 and perhaps other years. But I think Cincy is new for them.

Nooo, 12:30 is too early for a final! I don't want to get up then.

No its definitely live. The Women's final on ESPN has been taped, but I assume that has to do with the fact that they dont want the women's final shown at the same time as the men's. Thankfully the men's final is live though.

Yeah true. But if the mens is one sided and the womens is not I will not be happy.

Are you sure it is live...I thought the Cincy match started at Noon eastern...if so, it would be half hour delay. I may be wrong :)

A bit off topic, but for european people with sat access, the swiss channel TSR2 will show the final live :)

I will be napping. I work a long shift. Looks like I will miss it. :sad: I will tape it though.

CBS will indeed air it live at 12:30pm ET according to this page http://www.sportsline.com/cbssports

However the US Open Series page says ESPN2 will air it LOL.
<<<Tune in to ESPN2 on Sunday to catch the men's final LIVE at 12:30 PM ET, followed by the Rogers Cup women's final at 3:00 PM ET.>>>
