Tennis like you’ve never seen it
Australian Open, Nine, Friday from 9am
THE hard-hitting action continues at the 2019 Australian Open in Melbourne, with Rebecca Maddern, James Bracey and Tony Jones hosting Nine’s new-look tennis coverage.
They will be supported by an all-star roster of commentators including John McEnroe, Jim Courier (pictured), Sam Smith, Todd Woodbridge, Lleyton Hewitt, Jelena Dokic and Dylan Alcott.
In an Australian first, Nine has introduced 360-degree, Matrix-style cameras – an immersive video technology that positions cameras around the court to give viewers a panorama-like experience of the players in action.
In another Australian TV first, Viz Libero technology combines 3D replays with advanced virtual graphics.
