The semifinal round of the 2011 French Open wraps up on Frida with the men's semfinals at Roland Garros. The top four seeds advanced as number one seed Rafael Nadal meets number four seed Andy Murray and number two seed Novak Djokovic meets number three seed Roger Federer. You can view the entire day twelve schedule at rolandgarros.com as we'll have a host of doubles and other matchups. Coverage will once again be featured on the Tennis Channel (on TV and online) and ESPN2 (on TV and online).
Friday's television coverage is diced up due to the mix of Tennis Open and NBC coverage. The Tennis Channel opens coverage starting at 4:00am pacific with coverage of the first men's semifinal. Tennis Channel live coverage will be preceded by French Open Tonight, which will provide previews and updates heading into Thursday's coverage. If you don't get the sports package that includes the Tennis Channel, or you'll be away from your TV during the coverage, tennischannel.com is kind enough to provide a free live online stream of their coverage.
NBC will then pick up coverage beginning at 11am in all time zones for the second semifinal. If you don't live on the East Coast, live coverage of the second men's semifinal will be available via live online stream at NBCSports.com.
We'll be providing wall-to-wall coverage of the 2011 French Open over the next two weeks. Check back in our French Open 2011 story stream for news, analysis and other details. For more detailed conversation, join the folks at The Daily Forehand.
