Mixed Doubles 2014: Jamie Murray and Casey Dellacqua vs Horia Tecau and Sania Mirza By: big-ashb

There are so many major tennis tournaments throughout the year, that it can be very difficult to keep up with what exactly is going on. With the most popular one's to me being Wimbledon, The Majors, ATP, and US Open. It is difficult to find a full list of every single tournament in one place. The best resource I have found for a complete schedule is Here. You will most likely not get every single tournament on your tv provider, at least, it would be very impressive if you did. Most are hit or miss as to whether they will be broadcast-ed here in the states or not.

To refresh you on what is going on in the tennis world at the moment: Day two of Wimbledon is getting an early start on 6/30. Federer, seeded at #2 and ranked #2 in the world, will play Bosnia's Damir Dzumhur, ranked #87, in the second match of the day on Center Court. While #3 seed Murray will play Kazakhstan's Mikhail Kukushkin in the third match.

Kvitova, who will be defending her 2014 Wimbledon Crown, will play against Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands, ranked at #108 in the world. That is one that everyone will definitely want to see.

For those of you (like myself) who will be viewing the matches via web streaming, there are many options out there. Though there are only a few of which I prefer to use my self. Some of the lesser known streaming sites can be extremely frustrating to use, and do not give you the best streaming quality when you finally do figure out how to navigate them. I have listed my two personal favorite options below, in order from best to still user friendly and good quality.

As for viewers who prefer to watch matches through the comfort of their tv, the channels are spread out though several different providers:

  • Time Warner: Channel 9 (SD & HD)
  • Verizon Fios: Channel 509 (HD) and 9 (SD)
  • DirectTV: Channel 9 (SD & HD)
  • Dish Network: Channel 9 (SD & HD)
  • New Visions: Channel 609 (HD) and 9 (SD)

Then of course, you have Satellite radio. This is a great option for the many who will be commuting and not have a tv or laptop handy. These channels to an excellent job at giving you every single detail of what is happening. Sat. radio can be a life saver sometimes.

  • XM- Channel 201
  • Sirius- Channel 212
  • XMSirius Internet- Channel 963

Tennis is insane to watch, and playing it is an endurance trial like nothing else. Thanks for the info
