Tracy Austin
Tracy Austin, a tennis Hall-of-Famer, joined Tennis Channel as an analyst in 2010. She has since been a featured year-round analyst for the network providing both in-studio and on-site commentary during the year.

Austin is perhaps best known for storming onto the tennis scene and dethroning four-time US Open champion Chris Evert in 1979, winning the tournament as a 16-year-old prodigy, the youngest US Open champion in history. She held the No. 1 singles ranking in 1980 before a variety of injuries cut short her career, but nonetheless managed to win 30 career titles, including two US Open singles championships and a Wimbledon mixed doubles title. The International Tennis Hall of Fame inducted Austin into its wings in 1992.

Austin currently lives in Los Angeles. Her son, Brandon, is a member of the University of Southern California’s tennis team.

Mary Carillo
Mary Carillo is a renowned sports analyst and commentator with HBO, NBC, and Tennis Channel. She has won two coveted Peabody Awards for her work in the HBO documentaries, “Billie Jean King, Portrait of a Pioneer” and “Dare to Compete: The Struggle of Women in Sport.” She played on the WTA tour from 1977-1980 and won the 1977 French Open Mixed Doubles title with childhood friend, John McEnroe.
