Amazon Prime Video subscribers in the UK and Ireland will be able to watch more than 80 tournaments from the ATP Tour and WTA Tour this year after the company announced an expansion of its live tennis coverage.
The video on demand service started broadcasting ATP events last year and added WTA tournaments to its service at the beginning of 2020 while subscribers will also once again have exclusive access to this year’s US Open from Flushing Meadows.
Catherine Whitaker and Marcus Buckland will continue to front Prime Video’s live, on-site tennis coverage.
Former players Martina Navratilova, Greg Rusedski, Daniela Hantuchova, Tim Henman and Annabel Croft will provide commentary and analysis with Sam Smith, Mark Petchey, Robbie Koenig and Nick Lester headlining the commentary team.
Some of the upcoming big tournaments that will be covered by Prime Video include the joint ATP-WTA BNP events like the Paribas Open from Indian Wells (11-22 March) and the Miami Open (24 March-5 April), the Madrid Open (2-10 May) and the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati (16-23 August).
The grass-court season will also get some live coverage with the WTA Libema Open (8-14 June), the ATP Fever Tree Championships from Queens Club (15-21 June) and the Halle Open (15-21 June) among the tournaments to be screened.
