SKY SPORT SERVING UP ANOTHER SENSATIONAL SUMMER OF TENNIS

PRIMARY_tennisgeneric.jpg
SKY Sport is proud to be serving up another huge summer of tennis from both sides of the Tasman in 2018. The Summer of Tennis begins with the women’s ASB Classic in Auckland on January 1st, ahead of the men’s competition starting a week later on January 8th.

With some of the world’s top players heading to Stanley Street, you can expect 12 days of action-packed tennis coverage, LIVE on SKY Sport.

And it won’t just be the players giving it their all, behind the scenes there will be 65 incredibly talented crew bringing the SKY Sport broadcast to life. Over the 12 days of play, coverage will begin from 12.00pm with a half hour pre-show, hosted by Jordan Vandermade, with play getting underway from 12.30pm. The main court will be LIVE on SKY Sport 4, with additional coverage on SKY Sport Pop-up 1 (channel 55).

The Women’s ASB Classic Commentators are as follows:
• Rikki Swannell: Day Session Commentator
• Belinda Cordwell: Day Session Expert Comments
• Jenny Woods: Night Session Commentator
• Barbara Schett-Eagle: Night Session Expert Comments

The Men’s ASB Classic Commentators are as follows:
• Glen Larmer: Day Session Commentator
• TBC: Day Session Expert Comments
• Andrew Dewhurst: Night Session Commentator
• Robbie Koenig: Night Session Expert Comments

SKY Sport will recap every key moment on a dedicated studio show, Second Serve, running between the day and night sessions for the duration of the ASB Classic. Second Serve will be brought to you by Stephen McIvor, with Barbara Schett-Eagle joining Stephen during the women’s tournament, and Robbie Koenig featuring alongside during the men’s tournament. The show will recap the day’s play, and feature some of the best players from the ASB Classic.

Prime’s free-to-air coverage includes daily highlights from both the men’s and women’s tournaments at the ASB Classic, serving up the best action from the court. Broadcast details will be released closer to the tournament and updated on the electronic programme guide (EPG). While the ASB Classic is underway this side of the Tasman, it’ll be starting to heat up in Australia with the Brisbane International and Sydney International all playing out before the first grand slam of the year begins, the Australian Open.

SKY Sport’s coverage of the Australian Open features the main courts on SKY Sport 4 and an additional two SKY Sport pop-up channels, meaning viewers won’t miss any of the big moments in Melbourne.
