The ESPN Tennis Team

ESPN Promo Spots Feature World-Renowned Electric String Quartet “Siren”

ESPN enlisted the classic sound of the world-renowned, London-based electric string quartet Siren for this year’s Wimbledon promotional spots.  The group – Rosie Langley, Hayley Pomfrett, Llinos Richards and Kotono Sato, all graduates from leading conservatoires the Royal College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music – were filmed earlier this month on site at the All England Lawn Tennis Club.  One segment of the taping was shot while they played on the balcony of Centre Court – celebrating its 100th anniversary this year – where the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s champions traditionally appear soon after victory to wave to the fans below.

ESPN and Tennis

Tennis has been part of ESPN since its first week on the air in 1979, providing numerous memorable moments from around the world, but it has never been as important as today, with the unprecedented position of presenting exclusively three of the sport’s Major events from start to finish, the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open.
