Re: song played during grand slams?

The classical piece? Or the montage music with the shots of the ladies playing string instruments?

It's a group called Bond. Someone at ESPN said they broke up but I'm not sure if that's true. I hope not

You're not referring to beethoven's 5th symphony are you?

I think you mean 'Espn: the grand slam network's ' theme song? it plays during the opening credits when they show scenes of past champions (depending on the slam)

i know verizon has the wimbledon song and a couple of other sports themes as ring tones maybe they have the espn one as well maybe that'll help your search.

Re: song played during grand slams?

The opening theme...hmm...might be an original. I know that things like the FIFA world cup have their own "theme" during american coverage.
