US Open

I felt we needed a voice, not the voice of wrestling, not the sleepy voice, something in between...and when you hear it you know. There are certain people that have the ability to send those tingles down somebody's spine or to make 'em laugh or make 'em cry. Andy just has a very natural way of doing that.

Announcer Andy Taylor is the Voice of the US Open

In the tennis world, Andy Taylor is known as “The Voice of the U.S. Open.” Originally in 2002, his voice was simply heard introducing players and narrating ceremonies inside Arthur Ashe Stadium. Over the years, the role has grown tremendously, both within and beyond the tournament itself…

The US Open Experience (2012)

Before the start of the sport’s final Grand Slam, Andy voices television commercials to promote the US Open. He is the voice of BBC Radio’s coverage of the fortnight, the stadium host for Arthur Ashe Kids Day, and he voices every announcement heard throughout the USTA National Tennis Center. When he’s not working a match on center court, introducing the athletes for player walk-on or voicing a live ceremony, Andy is narrating video production that will play throughout the venue. When needed, the USTA will even yank him from the booth to interview legends of the game or host trophy ceremonies.

Whether he’s describing how Armstrong Stadium is full to capacity, awarding a trip to Dubai, cutting-up with John McEnroe, or detailing Serena’s amazing career pre-match, it is Andy Taylor’s voice in the fan’s ear…narrating, informing.
