CBS cuts away from tennis

 

CBS cut away from the dramatic conclusion of the Sony Open men’s tennis final on Sunday, switching to the tipoff of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament game between Michigan and Florida. Andy Murray rallied past David Ferrer 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (1) in Key Biscayne, Fla., and the network ended its telecast when the third set went to the tiebreaker. Tennis Channel televised the end of the final, and CBS later showed a replay of match point. The match began at 11:30 a.m. Eastern and lasted 2 hours, 45 minutes, running beyond its allotted TV time. Tournament director Adam Barrett said CBS had a commitment to show the basketball. – AP
