Del Potro and Vandeweghe headline the 2019 Kooyong Classic with new broadcast partner SBS

The world’s top tennis players will descend on the 2019 Kooyong Classic in January 2019.

Firmly established as a must play lead up event for the Grand Slam of the Asia/Pacific, the Australian Open, the tournament sees Juan Martin Del Potro and CoCo Vandeweghe honing their craft on Kooyong’s storied centre court across 3-days.

Tournament director Peter Johnston is confident Del Potro will use the January 8-10 event to elevate his preparation for the Open, noting “he is one of the games heavyweights given his playing record and massive fan appeal around the world.

His comeback from injury has progressed to a level where he is happy to commit to the Kooyong Classic and it will be a great opportunity for fans to see him play as a part of his Australian Open preparation.”

Continuing a long and distinguished tradition as the ‘spiritual home of Australian tennis’, the tournament introduces a new broadcast partner, with Johnston announcing they are “delighted to welcome SBS as our domestic broadcast partner for the 2019 Kooyong Classic.

This partnership enables us to increase our viewing hours in 2019 with National  broadcast from 11 am to 4 pm on each day of the event.”

SBS will also stream the tournament live online.
