In both of these games, you will get to see players from countries you don’t pay any attention to except during the World Cup.

11 am, ESPN2: Wimbledon. The Isner-Mahut match from yesterday, suspended after breaking all kinds of records for longest tennis match in creation, should be resumed about this time.

↵

1 pm, WGN: White Sox vs. Braves. The Sox go for their ninth win in a row.

↵

2:30 pm, CSN Chicago: Cubs vs. Mariners. The Cubs have scored more than one run in a game once in their last four tries; that was Sunday’s 12-run outburst vs. the Angels. Do not expect a repeat of that today.
