Sky Sports will continue to show live tennis action from the US Open and ATP World Tour on its pay-TV platform, it has been announced.

The TV, home phone and broadband provider has signed two new deals for elite tennis - securing ATP World Tour events for the next five years, and coverage from Flushing Meadows for the next three.

This will allow Sky Sports subscribers to watch Andy Murray's defence of his US Open crown in August - as the likes of Djokovic, Federer and Nadal take aim at the British number one.

Sky says the two new agreements mean its sports channels will show more live tennis than any other UK broadcaster.

Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports, commented that viewers will be able to enjoy watching "the biggest names in tennis" in action.

"The agreements underline our unrivalled rights portfolio across six channels and continue a busy period of rights renewals, with over 20 agreements in the last year alone," he stated.

"With The British & Irish Lions Tour, back-to-back Ashes Series, the ICC Champions Trophy, every race live in the F1 season, Super League, US Open & US PGA Golf, Andy Murray defending his US Open title and of course our biggest ever season of football, there has never been a better time to be a Sky Sports viewer."

Sky's tennis coverage features commentary and expert analysis from the likes of Boris Becker, Greg Rusedski, Mark Petchey, Annabel Croft and Barry Cowan.
