“This series is so important for tennis because of the rich canvas for storytelling the sport offers — the players within the game, their own personal journeys, the emotion one can see within a match, the combined men’s and women’s events, the global cities and cultural melting pots where the Slams and Tours take place. If we can bring new fans to the sport, whether that’s just to spend time with the series, follow a player’s own journey on social media, or want to go see that new favorite player in a Slam or Tour event – all these things will help us grow the game for the future.”Nick Bourne, Co-Executive Producer and Chief Strategy Officer at ATP Media
