If you’re one of the tennis fans calling for a little fresh blood on ESPN’s tennis coverage, you’re out of luck.
But if you enjoy the comfort of the familiar, you’ll be in heaven as ESPN has announced no less than eight contract extensions for its stable of tennis announcers.
Darren Cahill, Chris Evert, Mary Joe Fernandez, Brad Gilbert, John McEnroe, Patrick McEnroe, Chris McKendry and Pam Shriver all inked new deals.
There is one new face, which … slightly ups the diversity quotient – Miami Open tournament director James Blake.
Cahill is the full-time coach of Simona Halep.
