The French Open is officially in full swing — and Eurosport is bringing fans courtside with comprehensive, in-depth coverage throughout the tournament.
John McEnroe, who last year proclaimed himself the ‘unofficial’ Commissioner of Tennis, is back on Eurosport for his second consecutive year. McEnroe lines up alongside former world number ones Chrissy Evert and Ilie Nastase. The three stars will bring the fans their expert insight and analysis during live match commentary, in-studio analysis and dedicated programming from Roland Garros. Nastase, who joins Eurosport for the first time, will also offer his tennis expertise and knowledge to his home country of Romania, and will also share his commentary across Eurosport’s other various individual country-specific coverage.
‘Game, Set, and Mats’, a daily show hosted by Austria’s Barbara Schett and featuring analysis from Sweden’s Mats Wilander, the seven-time Grand Slam Champion, will offer fans highlights of the day, post match analysis and share premium interviews with former and current top players.
Rounding out Eurosport’s star-studded programming line-up are Spain’s Alex Correjta who offers court-side analysis, player interviews and behind the scenes access and Serena Williams’ coach Patrick Mouratoglou, whose show ‘The Coach’ looks to give fans a greater understanding of the players performance and strategy.
Eurosport will show Roland Garros in 54 countries in Europe, including exclusive coverage in a number of markets such as Denmark, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia and Sweden. Every minute from every court will be available live on Eurosport Player.
