Singles Finals to be Broadcast Live via Web

Ken Thomas, CEO of Tennis Telecom Inc., has developed a successful website dedicated to providing, via the Internet, live streaming audio of USTA sanctioned tennis matches. It is a free service available to anyone with access to the internet.

Kalamazoo is one of two junior events on this summer's broadcast schedule, which includes late round matches in many Challenger and Futures events around the country.

"Kalamazoo is a very special place for me," stated Thomas, a two time Michigan state high school tennis champion now living in California. In addition to winning those titles in Kalamazoo, Thomas also competed in the Boys 18s Doubles Championships in 1976, where he reached the quarterfinals. "I remember that if you made it to the quarterfinals, you got your picture in the program," Thomas recalls. "Man, was I excited!"
