Sky Sports Secures Exclusive ATP and WTA TV Rights and Announces Expert Pundit Team

The ATP and WTA tours have secured five-year coverage on Sky Sports in the UK from next year.

With more than 80 tournaments throughout the year, viewers now have access to a wide range of matches, including the return of the US Open to Sky Sports in 2023, following the deal.

Prior to this, the two tours were broadcast by Amazon Prime.

Hosted by six-time Grand Slam semi-finalist Tim Henman, and Olympic silver medallist Laura Robson, Sky’s coverage will offer expert insights, alongside additional pundits to be announced.

Lead presenter Gigi Salmon will also head the team, with Jonathan Overend providing match commentary.

“This is a fantastic time to see the ATP and WTA Tours on Sky Sports across our markets, as tennis enters a new era with fresh and exciting talent making their way to the top of the sport,” said Stephen van Rooyen, the CEO of Sky UK & Ireland.

According to the new deal, Sky previously held exclusive rights for broadcasting ATP events from 2002 to 2018.

The partnership also encompasses coverage of both the ATP and WTA Finals, ATP Masters 1000 and WTA 1000 events, 500s, 250 events (excluding domestics), and the Next Gen ATP Finals.

Marina Storti, CEO of WTA Ventures, expressed enthusiasm for the partnership, highlighting the strengthened calendar and its potential to elevate the sport even further.

“Sky Sports are renowned for championing world-class sport, and we know that they will create a fantastic new platform to showcase our outstanding WTA and ATP athletes in one place. The future is bright for women’s sport and there is much more growth to come,” she said.
