How to watch the Australian Open tennis live in the UK: The first Grand Slam of the season is (down) under way. Here’s how to watch the tennis live in the UK.
Anyone for tennis? Well, Novak’s been sent packing after a week of legal drama. Andy’s already out, Emma’s been eliminated, and Roger is still out of the equation with an injury. But yay! Tennis!
The tone setter for the 2022 season has quite a lot of drama already and if you’re already in a late night sports frame of mind, following The Ashes cricket, you can keep the party going for the next week or so.
We’re still in the second round stage, so there’s plenty of great tennis to look forward to between now and the finals next weekend. Here’s how to watch the Australian Open tennis… perhaps on that best new TV you got for Christmas.
Australian Open tennis dates and times
The Aussie open started on January 17 in Melbourne, Australia, and will run until Sunday the 30th. Unfortunately, play gets underway around midnight every night UK time and continues through the night. You’ll probably get to catch some live tennis if you wake at your usual time, if you don’t fancy pulling an all-nighter.
