Sky Sports has confirmed its lineup of presenters for the US Open, including Martina Navratilova, Tim Henman, Marion Bartoli, and Feliciano Lopez.
With two months to go until the 2023 US Open, the broadcasting team for Sky Sports has been announced, with former tennis players Tim Henman (former world No. 4) and Martina Navratilova (former world No. 1 and 18-time Grand Slam champion) leading the coverage. Gigi Salmon, who has extensive experience in media outlets such as Talksport and BBC Sport, will serve as the main presenter.
The last Grand Slam of the year will take place from August 28th to September 10th, with the world's top tennis players vying to lift the trophy that was won last year by young stars Carlos Alcaraz and Iga Swiatek, both of whom currently hold the world No. 1 ranking in the ATP and WTA, respectively.
Sky Sports recently signed a contract to broadcast the US Open until 2023, and it is speculated that they may have also secured a similar deal for the rights to the ATP and WTA tours.
Several tennis players and former players will be serving as commentators for the US Open, including Feliciano Lopez, who played his final tournament as a professional at the Mallorca Open this week.
Johanna Konta, who retired in 2021, will also be present, along with 2013 Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli. Other notable names include Jamie Murray, Laura Robson, Jordanne Whiley, Emma Paton, Karthi Gnaanasegaram, and Jonathan Overend.
Annabel Croft and Greg Rusedski won’t be part of this year's broadcasting team.
With Sky Sports' confirmation for television broadcasting, Amazon Sports will end its contract with the ATP and WTA, making it unlikely for them to continue broadcasting the tour. Consequently, Sky Sports is expected to announce soon that it will be replacing Amazon for the year-round coverage.

Sky Sports confirm their tennis talent for the US Open. Gigi Salmon will present coverage with Martina Naratilova, Tim Henman, Jo Konta, Laura Robson, Jamie Murray, Feliciano Lopez, Marion Bartoli, Karthi Gnanasegaram, Emma Paton and Jonathan Overend all involved.
