2012 French Open Schedule, TV Coverage, Start Times And More

The 2012 French Open is rolling along nicely from beautiful Rolland Garros, and we will get yet another day of third round action on Saturday. Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer all remain in contention for the championship, and Nadal will play once again in Saturday as the other two recover on a much needed day off.

All of the action will get underway at 2 a.m. PST. That's 5 a.m. for those of you on the east coast.

The Tennis Channel will provide live coverage of the matches throughout Saturday morning. That's channel 217 on DirecTV, 400 on Dish Network. Check your local cable listenings for the station in your area.

Here are a few of the key matchups to keep an eye on this morning and afternoon.

Men's:

No. 2 Rafael Nadal vs. Eduardo Schwank

No. 4 Andy Murray vs. Santiago Giraldo

No. 6 David Ferrer vs. No. 27 Mikhail Youzhny
