John McEnroe delivers a statement to explain his absence from US Open coverage.

John McEnroe, a tennis legend and ESPN broadcaster, tested positive for COVID-19, barring him from calling the US Open.

"Unfortunately, I tested positive for COVID after feeling a little under the weather," McEnroe said in a statement posted by the network on Tuesday.

"I'm at home watching the US Open and can't wait to get back to work."

It is unknown whether the tennis veteran will return to his duties as a pundit before the US Open concludes on September 10th.

ESPN extended McEnroe their best wishes and expressed their excitement for his comeback at a later date.

McEnroe will not be present for the US Open television coverage, according to the network.

Since his absence, Patrick McEnroe, Chris Fowler, Pam Shriver, and Cliff Drysdale have filled in as analysts.

During the tournament, Fowler is now the network's lead caller.
