Carillo To Serve Commentary, Host Tennis Channel Coverage At French Open

Mary Carillo will be part of Tennis Channel's coverage team for the French and U.S. Opens.
Beginning in two weeks in Paris, the Sports Emmy Award winner will host Tennis' live tournament desk at Roland Garros, conduct interviews, provide analysis and do some play-by-play. She will also produce in-depth, human-interest stories and segments. 

Carillo retains her tennis analyst gigs for CBS and NBC. She no longer works for ESPN.

The agreement with Tennis Channel pairs her with John McEnroe, the childhood friend with whom she won the 1977 French Open mixed-doubles championship, for the first time on the dedicated network's air. McEnroe has been a part of the network's Paris team since 2007, its first year in the City of Light.

In addition to McEnroe, Carillo joins a roster of Grand Slam champions that includes Martina Navratilova, Lindsay Davenport, Justin Gimelstob and Corina Morariu. She will also appear on the set of French Open Tonight with host Bill Macatee.

"Tennis Channel just continues to impress everyone with the passion and knowledge they bring to covering this sport, and I really wanted to be a part of that," said Carillo in a statement. "I've done things with them several times in the past but never as a member of their broadcast team. It will be great to get going with them at the French Open and contribute to the quality of work they're producing."
