Tennis Channel will carry nine Olympus US Open Series tournaments this summer, offering viewers nearly 80 hours of high-definition action from the six-week series that leads to the US Open in August.  In addition to prime-time Sunday doubles finals, the network will cover singles semifinal, quarterfinal and early round matches in 2010, with live and first-run telecasts that begin Friday, July 23, and end Saturday, Aug. 21.

Men’s Olympus US Open Series tournaments on Tennis Channel in 2010 are: the Atlanta, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Toronto and Cincinnati – with the two latter events also a part of the ATP Masters Series.  The network’s four women’s events are: Stanford, Calif., San Diego, Cincinnati and Montreal.

Tennis Channel has partnered since the circuit began in 2004, with fellow broadcasters ESPN and CBS Sports.  In 2010 Tennis Channel will again produce all Olympus US Open Series coverage for the three networks, minus the two ATP Masters Series events and the series’ final competition, Pilot Pen Tennis at Yale.

Tennis Channel’s on-air team during the series includes a range of veteran broadcasters and former players.  Play-by-play duties will be shared by Ted Robinson and Leif Shiras.  Former American tennis champions Lindsay Davenport, Jimmy Arias, Justin Gimelstob and Corina Morariu will serve as analysts, with Morariu occasionally splitting sideline-reporting responsibilities with Australian doubles specialist Ashley Fisher.
