Olympic Tennis 2012 TV Schedule: NBC Listing for Top Day 6 Matches

It's hard to believe that we are already into the quarterfinal stages of tennis at the 2012 London Olympics, but that is indeed the case.

There is plenty of action to be taken in, but that can be hard with the five-hour difference between the East Coast of the United States and London.

However, that's what we are here for.

Below you'll find the television listings for all of Day 6's top matches, as well as where to watch the rest of the competition going forward.

All matches can be seen on Bravo starting at 7 a.m. ET until 3 p.m. ET.

 

(1) Roger Federer vs. (10) John Isner - 11 a.m. ET

Roger Federer was eliminated from the doubles competition in rather unimpressive fashion, but we all know that isn't his forte.

Both Federer and John Isner have had an easy time getting to the quarterfinals in London. Federer easily beat Alejandro Falla, Julian Benneteau and Denis Istomin. Isner has had a relative cakewalk himself, getting passed Olivier Rochus, Malek Jaziri and Janko Tipsarevic to get to this point.

It's no secret who is the favorite in this matchup. Isner is no slouch, but Federer is playing as good of tennis now as he has in some time.

It would be absolutely shocking if Isner is able to notch an upset victory.

 

(4) Serena Williams vs. (8) Caroline Wozniacki - 11 a.m. ET

Caroline Wozniacki might be in for a rude awakening in her match against Serena Williams on Thursday. Not too long ago, Wozniacki had some fun on the court and decided it would be a good idea to mock Williams.

Williams isn't the tennis player that she once was, but she hasn't dropped a set in London yet. In fact, she hasn't let any of her opponents get passed the three-game mark.

Wozniacki, on the other hand, has been pushed to the brink in two of her three matches against less than stellar competition.

It's always interesting to have some off-court storylines to go with the competition, so make sure you don't miss this one.

 

(2) Novak Djokovic vs. (5) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga - 9 a.m. ET

World No. 2 Novak Djokovic is coming off a hard-fought win over Lleyton Hewitt. Before that, Djoker wiped the floor with Andy Roddick in the earlier stages of the competition.

He's been fun to watch, but he hasn't put on the same show that Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has.

Tsonga had an easy day against Feliciano Lopez, but it was well-earned after what he went through the match prior. He played in a marathon match against Milos Raonic, in which the two played through 48 points, eventually leading to a 25-23 tiebreak win for Tsonga.

The fatigue factor may be a problem for Tsonga, but if he's well-rested heading into the match, we'll see a nice showdown between two top-five players.

 

(3) Maria Sharapova vs. Kim Clijsters - 1 p.m. ET

In this matchup, we'll get to see one of the very best in women's tennis go up against a former great in the twilight of her career.

Maria Sharapova is one of the best in the sport. Kim Clijsters once was, but she has plans to retire after the U.S. Open (via The Telegraph), which isn't too far away. Don't miss the chance to see Clijsters take the court as her career dwindles down.

Which of these matches are you most excited to watch?

As for the actual match, Sharapova has played closer matches in this competition thus far. That would have more of an impact if it were the other way around, as age contributes to fatigue.

Clijsters has the perfect opportunity to get some steam heading into the U.S. Open, but I wouldn't bet on her to beat Sharapova here.
