We’re celebrating the start of the US Open and our exclusive Tennis Channel-OpenTable US Open Dining Guide! If you follow this blog, you may know that I am obsessed with a big fan of Roger Federer, who always makes time to dine at some of the Big Apple’s best restaurants when he’s in town.

Dine Out in NYC During the US Open + Tune in to the Tennis Channel!

Better off red? I think Roger Federer looks dashing in any color!

The US Open starts today in New York, and, thanks to Tennis Channel, you (and I) can enjoy hundreds of hours of coverage and analysis *and* a round-up of NYC restaurants to dine at during the US Open if you’re in town for this awesome event during the next two weeks!

No network devotes as many hours of television to the US Open as Tennis Channel does each summer while the sport’s largest spectacle takes place. In addition to full slates of matches most days, highlight and analysis shows US Open Tonight and Breakfast at the Open bridge the late-night and early morning hours with the latest on-court activity. Almost round the clock coverage offers live matches from 10:30AM-7PM, US Open Tonight from 11PM-2:30AM, with an encore shown 2:30AM-6AM, and Breakfast at the Open, 6AM-10:30PM.

Follow all the action on and off the courts at  Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows on Tennis Channel through Sunday, September 6, 2012! And, if you’re lucky enough to be attending the US Open, use our Tennis Channel-OpenTable US Open Dining Guide to find a terrific table before or after the matches!

I’ll be there for some key matches, rooting for Andy Murray, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, and David Ferrer, as well as my fave Roger Federer, to take the title this year (Apologies to Djokovic!), and I’m pretty sure the amazing Serena Williams will once again prove unstoppable.
