Tracy Austin

Hall-of-Famer Tracy Austin has worked as an analyst for Tennis Channel US Open coverage since 2010. She provides commentary for the network during the women's year-end championships and most recently for the 2012 Australian Open telecast.   

Austin regularly hosts the network’s Tennis Channel Academy, which takes viewers to top-level tennis schools for an inside look into the daily regimes of today’s and tomorrow’s star players.

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.
