ESPN’s two World Cup Round of 16 telecasts on Sunday set a record as the highest-rated men’s World Cup matches, in any round not involving a U.S. team, on ESPN or ESPN2. The Netherlands’ victory over Mexico holds the top spot, averaging a 4.0 rating and 6,571,000 viewers, followed by a 3.9 rating and 6,388,000 viewers for Costa Rica’s shoot-out win over Greece.

ESPN’s Wimbledon coverage continues with two more days of “Cross Court Coverage” — two networks covering the action, in addition to up to nine matches offered on ESPN3 — Tuesday and Wednesday. ESPN2 focuses on Centre Court starting at 7 a.m. while fans enjoy a “grounds pass” on ESPN with matches from Court One and elsewhere.

ESPN2 will televise three “NBA Free Agency Specials” beginning Tuesday, with a one-hour episode at 6 p.m. Additional 30-minute specials will air at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday.
