French Open TV Schedule 2012: Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer In Action On Tuesday

The 2012 French Open enters the quarterfinals Tuesday and, unsurprisingly, things are getting more exciting at Roland Garros. Four of the top 10 men's players who entered the major will match up Tuesday morning in France.

Top-ranked Novak Djokovic will take on one of the local favorites in French native Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Tsonga, from Le Mans, advanced to the meeting with Djokovic following a five-set victory over Stanislas Wawrinka on Monday. Djokovic's journey to the quarterfinals wasn't easy, either, as it took him five sets to dispatch Andreas Seppi.

Roger Federer is also scheduled to play his quarterfinal match Tuesday morning, taking on Juan Martin del Potro in a battle of the third seed taking on the nine seed.

Both men's quarterfinal matches are scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. ET. The Tennis Channel has coverage from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday before things switch over to ESPN2 until 7 p.m.

On the women's side of the bracket, sixth-seeded Samantha Stosur will take on Dominika Cibulkova in one of the quarterfinal matchups scheduled for Tuesday while 10-seeded Angelique Kerber will try to avoid an upset from 21-seeded Sara Errani, who has already upended Ana Ivanovic earlier in the tournament.
