Fox Sports Netherlands follows WTA deal with ATP renewal

Pay-television broadcaster Fox Sports Netherlands has extended its rights deal in the country for events operated by the men’s Association of Tennis Professionals.

The agreement with ATP Media means the ATP World Tour will remain on Fox Sports until the 2020 season.

The ATP World Tour package includes all Masters 1000 and 500 tournaments, as well as exclusive coverage of the climax of the men’s season, the ATP World Tour Finals in London, England.

The deal comes just days after Fox Sports secured exclusive rights to the Women’s Tennis Association Tour under a five-year deal running from 2017 to 2021.

That agreement ties in with the start of the WTA's new partnership with digital sports media company Perform, which has established WTA Media, the tour’s dedicated media arm.
