“The U.S. Open is more than just America’s largest and most popular tennis event – it is the stage of many of the game’s greatest battles and most exhilarating performances. We will capture these moments, as well as the passions and personalities of the players, in ‘Only at the Open,'” Victoria Quoss, executive vice president of programming and network strategy for Tennis Channel, said in a statement.
