The Wimbledon Ladies’ quarterfinals – highlighted by a battle of Americans when #11 Serena Williams faces Alison Riske – on Tuesday, July 9, will feature “Cross Court Coverage” as ESPN covers Centre Court and ESPN2 focuses on No. 1 Court, both starting at 8 a.m. ET.  ESPN is presenting all the Wimbledon action exclusively in the U.S. with ESPN, ESPN+ and ESPN3.

The Williams-Riske match will be on ESPN and the first on Centre Court, followed by Britain’s #19 Jo Konta vs. Barbora Strycova.

In addition, the high-powered mixed doubles team of Serena Williams and Andy Murray will play late in the day on ESPN from Centre Court.  They will square off against the duo of Fabrice Martin and Raquel Atawo.

Tuesday’s ESPN+ lineup will include doubles, juniors and Gentlemen’s and Ladies’ Invitation Doubles action.  The former stars in action in the Invitation Doubles include Martina Navratilova/Cara Black, Tracy Austin/Andrea Jaeger, Kim Clijsters/Rennae Stubbs and Henri Leconte/ESPN’s Patrick McEnroe.

It was 32 years at ESPN for me as of November 2018 (the only job I’ve ever had) after joining merely to help with the America’s Cup for three months at a robust $5.50 per hour. I like to say I simply kept showing up. I’ve worked on almost every sport, plus answered viewer calls and letters (people used to write!), given tours, written the company newsletter and once drove NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon to the local airport. My travels have been varied…I’ve been to Martinsville and Super Bowls; the America’s Cup (all 3) in San Diego and College GameDay in the sport’s meccas such as Eugene, Auburn, Lubbock, Stillwater and more; the NBA Finals and Indy 500; Wimbledon (11 times and counting) and the “other Bristol,” the one with a race track in Tennessee. These days, in addition to overseeing the Fan Relations, Archives and ESPNPressRoom.com, my main areas are tennis, ratings, and corporate communications documents, including ESPN’s history and growth.
