Jimmy Arias is a Tennis Channel veteran, who has worked as an analyst for many domestic tournaments since the network's earliest days.
Known for a punishing forehand and extraordinary mental toughness, Arias was one of the first graduates of the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy to make big waves on the pro circuit. At age 15 he became the youngest player ever to achieve a world ranking, and turned pro at 16. In 1980, Arias became the youngest player to play the men’s main singles draw of the US Open. In a career that saw him ranked in the top 20, he enjoyed his best year in 1983 with four singles titles, including the U.S. Clay Court Championships and the Italian Open.
