Tennis fans are so excited that the second major of the year, the French Open, is upon us. Roland Garros is already buzzing with the energy of practice matches and from the return of the King of Clay, Rafael Nadal, for presumably his final appearance at the tournament he has dominated with an astounding 14 times.

Fans are also excited because broadcast television giant NBC airs live action from Roland Garros. NBC veterans and former players John McEnroe and Mary Carillo are once again part of the commentating team.

In 2024, NBC introduces a new face and voice to the coverage team. He is 26 year old Noah Eagle. Eagle is the son of Ian Eagle who is known for calling college basketball, NFL, and NBA games. Ian Eagle has also done work for the Tennis Channel.

Noah Eagle is no stranger to tennis coverage

Noah Eagle aspired to be a sports broadcaster since he was a young child. He did not waste any time getting to it. His resume is already filled with experience covering the NFL, NBA, college football, and tennis for the Tennis Channel. Eagle's energy, enthusiasm, and excitement for the game will be a welcome addition to the NBC booth.

Next. Everything about the French Open. Everything you need to know about the 2024 French Open. dark

The French Open officially begins on May 26 with the tournament draw occurring on May 23. Iga Swiatek and Novak Djokovic are the defending champions in women's and men's singles. Nobody knows what to expect from Nadal who won his 14th title in 2022 but has dealt with injuries for over a year.

Another off-the-court storyline to watch out for is if Roger Federer shows up at Roland Garros to support Nadal. He is in Paris doing philanthropic work, and if he is there, hopefully, the NBC team of Eagle, McEnroe, and Carillo invite him up to the booth to talk tennis.
