Sky says it will show more live tennis than any other broadcaster after signing new deals to screen the US Open and ATP World Tour for the next five and three years respectively.
The deal includes television rights to Andy Murray’s US Open grand slam defence at Flushing Meadows in August.
Under the new deals, subscribers will be able to enjoy regular coverage of the biggest names in men’s tennis, including Murray, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
The agreement also includes coverage of women’s matches from the US Open, enabling fans to follow Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka plus British challenges from Laura Robson and Heather Watson.
Sky says up to eight different simultaneous US Open matches will be available through the red button.
The five year deal for the ATP World Tour gives the broadcaster live events from next year, including the season-ending Barclays ATP World Tour Finals at The O2 in London.
Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports said: “These deals offer Sky Sports viewers the biggest names in tennis in some of the best events including Andy Murray’s defence of the US Open later this year.
“With The British & Irish Lions Tour, back-to-back Ashes Series, the ICC Champions Trophy, every race live in the F1 season, Super League, US Open & US PGA Golf, Andy Murray defending his US Open title and of course our biggest ever season of football, there has never been a better time to be a Sky Sports viewer.”
