2012 U.S. Open Tennis: Schedule, TV Coverage, Live Streaming And More

Thursday's action at the U.S. Open focuses on two key men's quarterfinal matches. At 12:30 p.m. CT, No. 4 seed David Ferrer faces eighth-seeded Janko Tipsarevic. Ferrer has had relatively smooth sailing to the quarterfinal, losing only one set in four matches. This is already his best finish at the U.S. Open.

Tipsarevic is in his second-straight U.S. Open quarterfinal. After dropping the first two sets of his opening-round match against Guillaume Rufin, he's been on a tear, winning 12 straight sets and only needing one tiebreaker to do so.

In the evening's premiere match, No. 2 Novak Djokovic faces No. 7 Juan Martin del Potro. Djokovic, the defending champion, has yet to lose a set in four matches and blew out No. 18 Stanislas Wawrinka in the fourth round, 6-4, 6-1, 3-1 (Ret.).

Del Potro ended Andy Roddick's run Wednesday, and the 2009 U.S. Open champ now faces Djokovic on barely more than 24 hours of rest. Before the match, U.S. tennis legends John McEnroe and Jim Courier will play an exhibition doubles match with movie stars Adam Sandler and Kevin James. The exhibition is scheduled for 6:00.

Television coverage of the U.S. Open begins at 11:00 on ESPN2, with evening coverage starting at 6:00.
