The US Open, the last Grand Slam tennis tournament of the year, will be broadcast by ESPN and DirecTV through an interactive and multiscreen mosaic, enabling fans to select among six matches being broadcast live.
The US Open Mix will show six small screens showing the games simultaneously, offering viewers the option to choose one or watch them all together. This mosaic will only be on offer during the first week of the tournament, the only week when matches are played at the same time.
In addition to the live stream, DirecTV and ESPN will deliver Grand Slam statistics in real-time.
The US Open will again gather the world's best players in New York, led by Rafa Nadal, the winner of the last men's tournament, Djokovic, Federer, Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka. The tournament has a large Latin American presence, with players such as Leonardo Mayer, Santiago Giraldo, Federico Delbonis, Juan Mónaco, Carlos Berlocq, Alejandro Falla, Alejandro González and Diego Schwartzman.
