Tennis Channel has announced that tennis icon John McEnroe will lend his analysis and commentary to the network's U.S. Open prime-time broadcast Labor Day weekend, Sept. 3-4. As with previous Tennis Channel telecasts, McEnroe will be teamed with broadcasting legend Ted Robinson. The two have appeared in the network's booth at the French Open since 2007 and have made numerous Davis Cup appearances on the channel. McEnroe continues to be a U.S. Open analyst for CBS and ESPN2.

As one of the most recognizable and credible television analysts in tennis today, McEnroe has captivated sports fans since bringing his fiery personality to the pro tennis scene in the late 1970s. He won 77 singles and 78 doubles titles during his career, including four U.S. Open and three Wimbledon singles championships. McEnroe won the French Open mixed doubles championship with fellow Tennis Channel analyst Mary Carillo in 1977, and reached the tournament's singles final in 1984.

McEnroe is considered one of the most dominant Davis Cup players of all time, winning the championship five times as a member of the U.S. team and remains the all-time record holder in U.S. Davis Cup total wins (59 wins vs. 10 losses), singles wins (41-8), ties or rounds played (30), and years played (12). McEnroe was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1999.
