Nine today announced it has secured the exclusive rights to the US Open in 2022, in a landmark three-year deal. Nine is now the home for all four Grand Slams tournaments.

Channel 9 and Stan Sport will bring viewers all the action from one of the oldest tennis championships in the world, with the big names, thrilling matches and great stories live from New York City. Will 2022 see the rise of the new crop of tennis stars? Or redemption for this year’s runner-up in the tournament, Novak Djokovic?

Director of Nine Sport, Brent Williams, said:

“We are thrilled to have one of the world’s most prestigious sporting events in the US Open coming to Nine and Stan Sport. Today’s exciting announcement makes us the exclusive home of all four tennis Grand Slams.

“With the Australian Open, Wimbledon, Roland Garros and now the US Open, we have expanded both our FTA and live streaming offering, with unprecedented coverage of elite tennis all year round.

“We are excited that fans will be able to access every superstar player, every thrilling match and every single point of these iconic tournaments on a Nine platform.”

United States Tennis Association Chief Revenue Officer, Lew Sherr, said:

“We have always admired the Nine Network’s coverage of the Australian Open, so we know that the US Open has found a great home on Nine and Stan Sport.

“They have a proven commitment to tennis and a demonstrated ability to elevate and integrate the sport’s presentation across all their platforms.” 

And our tennis coverage doesn’t stop there. As well as rights to all four Grand Slams, Channel 9 and Stan Sport have the broadcast rights to the Davis Cup, Billie Jean King Cup and Laver Cup Tennis Tournament. Plus all the summer lead-up tournaments to the Australian Open, including the ATP Cup.
