ESPN Announces Wimbledon Coverage
By Tennis Week
06/13/2005

Tennis fans can tune into ESPN2 to wake up to Wimbledon. The grass-court Grand Slam begins next Monday and ESPN2 and ESPN Classic will offer a combined 114 hours of Wimbledon. The schedule includes live coverage each weekday starting at 7 a.m. Eastern time and nightly highlight shows, culminating with ESPN2's coverage of a women's semifinal match live on Thursday, June 30th and a men's semifinal on Friday, July 1st.

In addition, special editions of SportsCenter at Wimbledon will follow the broadcast of the women's championship on Saturday, July 2nd and the men's final Sunday, July 3rd. Two-time defending men's champion Roger Federer and women's winner Maria Sharapova lead the list of players competing on the historic grass courts of the All England Club for the most coveted championship in the sport.

ESPN2 will launch its coverage with a special Wimbledon Preview Show Sunday, June 19th at 1 p.m. Starting Monday, each weekday's coverage will begin at 7 a.m. with Wake Up to Wimbledon. The one-hour show will preview the day's play, followed by up to nine hours of live matches. On June 20th -22nd, ESPN Classic will simulcast Wake Up to Wimbledon and will carry the first two hours of coverage exclusively. On June 28 - 30th, ESPN2's live coverage will be blacked out in the Pacific Time Zone from 1 - 4 p.m. Eastern, which is 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. Pacific.

Each night of the tournament through the semifinals, at least two hours of highlights will be presented in prime time on ESPN2. The Complete Wimbledon will serve as a 30-minute summary of all the day's play, followed by Today at Wimbledon, at least 90 minutes of marquee matches.

"This event deserves unprecedented coverage, and with an aggressive schedule and the most comprehensive production complement, we are committed to presenting the full experience of a fortnight at Wimbledon," said Mark Shapiro, ESPN executive vice president, programming and production.

The network's on-air staff is larger than some countries' contingent of players.

Dick Enberg will work his 22nd Wimbledon to call matches, as will Cliff Drysdale — who has been with ESPN since its first tennis telecast in 1979 — and Tim Ryan. They will team with analysts Mary Carillo, Mary Joe Fernandez, Brad Gilbert, Patrick McEnroe and Pam Shriver, who will also frequently be utilized as a roving reporter covering play in "outer courts" and as a sideline reporter. Chris Fowler will host and will also call select matches. Kit Hoover, who joined the tennis team at the French Open, will serve as a features reporter, focusing on topics off the court and around London. Suzy Kolber will host the evening highlights show with analyst Luke Jensen, who will also appear on SportsCenter, ESPNEWS and ESPN Radio. In addition, Sue Mott of London's Daily Telegraph will again appear daily on Wake Up to Wimbledon to discuss Wimbledon from the local point-of-view.

Dick Enberg recently won his 14th Sports Emmy Award for the "Reflections" feature he penned during ESPN2's coverage of Wimbledon in 2004, which earned him the Dick Schaap Award for Writing. Seven of the 14 have been for Writing; another was the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Enberg's award was the third consecutive year ESPN's tennis team has been honored with a Sports Emmy. Writer Jeff Sarokin won last year for a segment from the '03 coverage, and in 2003 ESPN's ShotSpot graphic won the Innovative Technical Achievement category.

ESPN's Spanish-language U.S. network will provide extensive coverage of Wimbledon, with 80 hours starting Monday, June 20th through Friday, July 1st. Live coverage will begin each weekday morning at 8 a.m. (except Monday, June 27 - Wednesday, June 29th when taped coverage will be aired
at 1 p.m.)

Oh no... Why do I get the feeling that all of those NBC weekday broadcasts are '10 am in all time zones crap' and the West Coast will get screwed again.

Why do you get the feeling? B/c it's probably what will happen. Everyone has to have their daily dose of Katie Couric, you know. :eek: :banghead:

Severe disappointment...Here in Tampa, hotbed of tennis in the US, the local affiliate is not showing the Wimbledon preview on NBC. Since it is on at noon, they're doing local news instead.

They also (gasp) delayed the RG final for a telethon. Thank goodness I was in Atlanta at a RG party and got to see it live.

No wonder the US field is so weak with few upcoming young prospects, they get no love from the media.

Great to see confirmation that the West Coast viewers will get screwed again by NBC and ESPN will be blacked out. Thanks NBC.

By Tennis Week
06/23/2005

Wimbledon has been a ratings winner for ESPN2 through the first two days of the fortnight.

After two days of all-day coverage, ESPN2 has averaged 417,000 households for the nine hours of live coverage (8 a.m. – 5 p.m.). That represents an increase of 18 percent over last year (355,000).

In addition, Wake Up to Wimbledon, the one-hour studio show that starts each day at 7 a.m. has seen an increase of 61 percent, from 44,000 homes in 2004 to 71,000 this year.
