2007 US OPEN – The Tennis Channel Broadcast #2

February 28th, 2008 by Geoff Thomsen

Last night’s broadcast of the 2007 US OPEN Racquetball Championships on The Tennis Channel featured a quarterfinal match between 2006 US OPEN Champion Jason Mannino and 2007 US National Champion Mitch Williams.  Both players had a ton of great gets, and it was a fun match to watch.  Part way through the second game, Shawn Royster and Mike Ceresia were joined in the announcers’ booth by none other than three-time US OPEN Champion, Kane Waselenchuk.  Kane stated that he has been training hard, and will be ready to play at the first IRT stop of the 2008-2009 season.  He likened his comeback to his first years on the tour, where he will have to battle his way through the qualifiers and into the main draw.  Has anyone done the math to figure out if Kane can capture the year-end number ranking in his first year back?  The draws are going to be VERY interesting with Kane coming in as a low seed for the first several events .. can’t wait!
