The Outer Courts on Tennis Channel with Ian Eagle tomorrow morning

Now we're official.
Matt and I just wrapped up taping a TV segment that will air on Tennis Channel's pregame show tomorrow morning -- that explains our absence from the blog this afternoon. Ian Eagle, a good friend of The Outer Courts, welcomed us into the friendly confines of his three-chair, makeshift set behind Center Court's third level seating, where he quizzed us on what it's like to be members of the tennis media in Cincinnati.

Guided by Ian's Mike Wallace-like questioning, Matt and I shared our stories and observations from the first two days at the 2013 Western & Southern Open. From Matt's barefoot approach in the media room to my mind constantly wandering across the street to ride The Beast, it was a fun, and hopefully entertaining, television bit.

So tune in tomorrow morning at 10:30 a.m. -- like you were already planning to do -- to catch a glimpse of two aspiring tennis scribes in our first sit-down interview with Tennis Channel.

Is it Emmy-worthy?

Probably.
