French Open 2011 Women's Final: TV Schedule And Preview

The women's final of the French Open 2011 begins play Saturday morning at Roland Garros, with World No. 5 Francesca Schiavone of Italy and China's Li Na (No. 6) facing off for the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen, bring to a close a sporadic and wildly unpredictable women's draw.

With the top four seeds eliminated embarrassingly early on in Paris, a relatively easy way has been made for Li to become the first Chinese player to reach the finals at Roland Garros. It's her second such feat, having earned a last-round berth in Melbourne, where she lost to Kim Clijsters. Clijsters, you will notice is absent from this final, as are Wozniacki, Azarenka, Zvonareva, Sharapova, and nearly every other major obstacle. Remaining is Schiavone, who won't be a sentimental favorite, but whose second straight buzzsaw run through an entire half-field on a clay-courted Grand Slam event has proven she's anything but flash and gone.

Also in action Saturday will be John McEnroe, Lindsay Davenport, Martina Hingis, Richard Krajicek, and Mark Woodforde on the Legends division, and the men's doubles final featuring the No. 2 team of Max Mirnyi and Daniel Nestor versus Juan Sebastian Cabal and Eduardo Schwank (real name!).

Day 14 of the French Open 2011 commences at 9 a.m. EDT Saturday morning. Matches will be televised on NBC, and live scores will be available on Roland Garros' official website.
