Nine's Wide World of Sports is committed to bringing an unmissable summer of tennis to Australian audiences in 2021.

The countdown to the Australian Open is on!

Preparations continue to ramp up for the historic February 8 start of the first tennis Grand Slam of the year, the Australian Open 2021, and there’s only one place to catch all the action live from Melbourne Park – right here with Nine.

“The AO will be a great celebration for Melbourne and all Victoria after an incredibly tough year,” Craig Tiley, Australian Open Tournament Director, says.

In 2020, Nine's coverage of the Australian Open recorded some of the highest ratings of the year. In 2021, with limited on ground crowd attendance, a broadcast partnership will put your brand front and centre with tennis fans and fanatics alike.

Join us for the Grand Slam that will unite Australians more than ever before.


Nine’s Australian Open coverage treats viewers to every ball of every match on every court, giving Australians the best tennis experience available. Our expert team of hosts and commentators, backed by the unrivalled resources of Nine’s Wide World of Sports, means viewers are taken closer to the game than ever before.

There's only this summer

What are the that make a fan?


Tennis has created a powerful community of fans who don’t just consume but contribute by taking pleasure from the shared enthusiasm they have of the game. They embrace more than the source of material of their fandom with time and money, and they devote themselves to the sport, through thick and thin.

Whether you’re a super fan or general fan, the key ingredients to connect remain the same. At Nine we can help connect.
