There will be a new way to experience all the great action from the Fayez Sarofim & Co. U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship in 2018 as Tennis Channel will be on-site broadcasting for the entire week for the first time.
Tennis Channel’s coverage will begin on Monday, April 9, at 3 p.m. with the start of main draw play, and will continue until the champion lifts the trophy on Sunday, April 15. The network will not only telecast the Center Court matches but it will also make Court 3 matches available on its digital platform Tennis Channel Plus.
In addition to the coverage on the court, the broadcasts will include interviews with the tournament participants from the Tennis Channel Live Desk at the Opportune Player's Corner, which will be located next to the Cross Court Craft Garden. Spectators will be able to have an up-close-and-personal view of these interviews, and those fans may even be seen by their friends and family watching at home!
“This opportunity to partner with Tennis Channel for a full week of coverage of our tournament is something that is unique among ATP 250 events and, I believe, elevates us to the next level,” said tournament director Bronwyn Greer. “We’re excited that tennis fans around the country will be able to view all the action from our beautiful and historic venue at River Oaks, and we look forward to the added energy on the grounds as players are that much more accessible to the fans when they visit the Tennis Channel Live desk in the Opportune Player's Corner.”
Tennis Channel’s commentary team for the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship will include Brett Haber along with former ATP pros Paul Annacone, Justin Gimelstob and Leif Shiras.
