Tennis could be witnessing one the most important technological evolutions in its history: connected tennis. The new digital connection and associated apps allows players with a connected tennis device such as Babolat Play.
"Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can" said Arthur Ashe. On Saturday, August 29th everybody at the 20th Annual Arthur Ashe Kids Day brought their A game.
Forty-eight years ago, Bill MacPhail, then in charge of sports at CBS, signed a deal with the US Tennis Open to carry its tennis matches, men's and women's, on the CBS network. That deal died last year and in 2015 you'll have to watch them on ESPN.
