WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. » All 17 U.S. Open courts used for sin­gles, dou­bles and mixed dou­bles will have elec­tronic line-call­ing and video re­view avail­able in 2018.

The U.S. Ten­nis As­so­ci­a­tion says Fri­day it’s the first time that ev­ery match at the year’s last Grand Slam tour­na­ment will have the tech­nol­ogy.

The U.S. Open in­tro­duced elec­tronic line-call­ing in 2006.

The four top courts — Arthur Ashe Sta­dium, Louis Arm­strong Sta­dium, Grand­stand, Court 17 — will have an in­stant-re­play team within the arena this year. A cen­tral­ized of­fice will han­dle the elec­tronic re­view process for other matches.

Last year, seven courts had the ca­pa­bil­ity. The U.S. Open starts on Aug. 27. ——— More AP ten­nis cov­er­age: https:// www.ap­­nis
