ESPN grand slam tennis theme music.......

  1. Hello everyone,


    I was wondering if anyone knows where this music comes from. I really like it.

    If I remember correctly, this was played at all three grand slams this year as an intro on ESPN and when commercial breaks were over.


    There was also another theme that was played (I remember it from Wimbledon) that was faster. I couldn't find a video for it. Again, I think this only applies to the ESPN broadcast.

    I believe that the intro song that ESPN uses isn't from a larger song. It's just a jingle.

    I definitely do agree that the new ESPN tennis theme does a fantastic job of representing the game of tennis--from its drama to its class.

    Being a trumpet player, I love to dissect tennis themes, and really any theme in general.

    Here is the older ESPN theme you were referring do, used from 2003-2008: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAQI_1Kjdpc&feature=related

    Here is the NBC Wimbledon Theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syNT9rkjDs4&feature=related

    And, finally my personal favorite, USA's US Open theme used up until last year *sob*: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=182_syh_A7Q&feature=related

    I liked the 2003-2008 ESPN Slam music especially since they showed all the great champions over the years! And the USA one is awesome!

    The USA network theme was my favorite, but now since they've gone the espn theme is pretty epic.

    The best theme of all-time was the HBO Wimbledon theme...does anyone know where I could find it? I haven't seen it on YouTube.

    The current NBC French Open theme is also pretty cool.

    Good stuff. My favorite, though, without a doubt, is the CBS March Madness theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4o_FZZ_Ccs

    Haha, yeah, I saw that. ;)
