Richard Gasquet vs Denis Istomin Aegon International: TV Channel, Live Stream, Start Time for Tennis Match

Rchard Gasquet and Denis Istomin are set to face off in the Aegon International tennis tournament in Eastbourne at Devonshire Park in the United Kingdom on June 20.

The match is slated to start at 2:30 p.m. BST (9:30 a.m. EDT). 

The match will be broadcast on BBC 2 in the United Kingdom and Eurosport across Europe. 

Live streaming will be available through BBC, Eurosport, the ATP, or TennisTV.

The match will be showed delayed, starting at 12 a.m. EDT, in the United States via the Tennis Channel.

Gasquet is ranked No. 1 in the tournament. He beat Slovak Martin Klizan 6-3, 6-4. It is his third semifinal of the year and comes after he was sidelined for more than three months with a back injury.

The Frenchman, who claimed the title in 2005 and 2006 when the event was held in Nottingham, broke for 3-1. That was enough to earn him the opening set, and in the second set he again fought off a break point before breaking to lead 4-3.

Gasquet is playing only his third tournament since March, and admits that although he is progressing he is still not fully fit.

“It’s always difficult to come back,” Gasquet said. “You are questioning yourself every day on your body. I’m not 100 percent on my game and everything, but I’m playing better and better. I served well. I could play with power.”

Istomin of Uzbekistan beat Edouard Roger-Vasselin of France 7-6 (5), 6-2.

Spanish defending champion Feliciano Lopez will play his quarterfinal against Jeremy Chardy of France on Friday after the match was canceled overnight due to rain. The winner will play Sam Querrey, also on Friday, after the American beat Frenchman Julien Benneteau 7-6 (5), 6-4.
