TENNIS ANYONE? HOW ABOUT US OPEN TENNIS IN 3D!

by Jon Barad

Update: Sunday, September 12 8pm PT

As you may have seen, the tournament was cancelled today (Sunday) due to weather. The the US Open Men’s Singles Final has been moved to Monday,  September 13th at 4pm ET.  You'll be able to resume watching in 3D at that time.

Get your NVIDIA 3D Vision systems ready for another exclusive live 3D sports production, as the US Open Tennis Championships will be streamed in 3D for the first time on USOpen.org, the official website of the US Open.

You can watch the 3D stream September 11th at 8pm ET, to see the Women’s Singles Final and then tune in again for the Men’s Singles Final on September 12th at 4pm ET.

Remember, last year’s US Open finals? The crowd bore witness to history as 20-year-old Juan Martin del Potro ended the five-year reign of Roger Federer in a five-set thriller on the men’s side, and Kim Clijsters made her triumphant return to the Open in a thrilling victory over Caroline Wozniacki. Hopefully we’ll experience the same level of excitement this year…in 3D.

Below you will find the system requirements, and please note that this event will be a bit different than prior streams. The US Open stream will be delivered to you through the NVIDIA 3D Vision Video Player (v1.6.4) instead of the Silverlight 3D Vision Player.
