Nick Kyrgios and girlfriend Costeen Hatzi, Matteo Berrettini, Ajla Tomljanović, Taylor Fritz and girlfriend Morgan Riddle, and Frances Tiafoe are among those featured in the series. It will follow these players and partners at a number of ATP and WTA tournaments, as well as Grand Slams, including the Australian Open, the US Open, the Indian Wells Masters, the Madrid Open, the Roland-Garros French Open and more. The trailer was released last week, and can be seen at the bottom of this article.

Paul Martin and James Gay-Rees from Box To Box were executive producers, with Kari Lia showrunner.

Speaking at the special preview screening, Martin said: “We have wanted to show the world a side to tennis at the elite level that they didn’t know existed, so to have achieved that and to premiere the series at the Australian Open with many of the players it is centred around is deeply gratifying.”
