@ESPNTennis at the US Open: Serena, Djokovic and Cici Bellis in Afternoon; Murray, Bouchard under the Lights Thursday

ESPN’s Day Four at the US Open on Thursday, Aug. 28, at 1 p.m. ET will include top seeds and former champions Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic during the afternoon, prime-time matches with 2012 winner Andy Murray and 20-year old Canadian sensation Genie Bouchard, plus the second-round match of 15-year old CiCi Bellis of California. The youngest to win at the US Open since 1996 – three years before she was born – Bellis faces 48th-ranked Zarina Diyas, 20, of Kazakhstan. This year, she reached the fourth round at Wimbledon and the third round of the Australian Open. The match will likely occur in late afternoon, being the fourth match to be played on Court 17.

CHRIS SCHENKEL

Chris Schenkel of ABC Sports to be Inducted in Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame

Chris Schenkel, the long-time voice of many top events at ABC Sports, will be inducted posthumously into the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame, the organization announced today. The ceremony will be held Tuesday, Dec. 16, in New York.

From the earliest days of television to the brink of the 21st Century, generations of sports fans grew up with Schenkel’s baritone and low-key delivery as the soundtrack to college football, NBA, horse racing’s Triple Crown, the major events in golf and tennis and, perhaps most notably, the Pro Bowlers Tour for 33 years. A sports broadcasting pioneer, Schenkel passed away in September 2005 at the age of 82.
