TSN is once again home to exclusive Canadian coverage of all four Grand Slam tennis tournaments, beginning with the 2014 AUSTRALIAN OPEN. Live coverage begins this Sunday, Jan. 12 at 7 p.m. ET on TSN2 with 12 consecutive hours of Early Round Coverage. In total, the networks deliver more than 100 hours of live coverage from the first round through to the finals, as well as encore broadcasts of overnight matches during the afternoons (see broadcast schedule below). 

As the undisputed home of premier tennis in Canada, TSN has the court covered throughout the entire 2014 season, serving up exclusive coverage of Grand Slam tennis, beginning with the AUSTRALIAN OPEN and continuing with the FRENCH OPEN, WIMBLEDON, and U.S. OPEN.

TSN.ca has exclusive bonus online coverage of the AUSTRALIAN OPEN throughout the early rounds of the tournament, including full live streaming of select matches. In addition, TSN Digital platforms keep tennis fans up-to-date on all the latest news, highlights, scores, and stats from Melbourne Park.

French-language coverage of the AUSTRALIAN OPEN is available on RDS and RDS2.

Fans can follow Canadians Milos Raonic and Eugenie Bouchard at the AUSTRALIAN OPEN on TSN and TSN2, while TSN.ca and SPORTSCENTRE have all the highlights as the up-and-coming stars compete down under. As the top-ranked Canadian and winner of the 2013 Lionel Conacher Award for Canadian Press Male Athlete of the Year, Raonic looks to continue  his steady rise in the ATP rankings, and arrives at the 2014 AUSTRALIAN OPEN on the heels of a run to the fourth round in the 2013 U.S. OPEN. Entering her second season of Grand Slam events, Bouchard looks to build on a successful 2013 season that saw her win multiple awards, including WTA Newcomer of the Year, Tennis Canada's female player of the year, and the Bobbie Rosenfeld Award for Canada's female athlete of the year.

Defending champion Novak Djokovic returns to Melbourne Park to compete for an unprecedented fourth consecutive AUSTRALIAN OPEN title. The star-studded men's field also includes 2013 WIMBLEDON champion Andy Murray, four-time AUSTRALIAN OPEN winner Roger Federer and current World #1 player Rafael Nadal.

The women's side features 17-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams, who is coming off victories at the 2013 FRENCH OPEN and U.S. OPEN. The field also includes 2013 AUSTRALIAN OPEN champ Victoria Azarenka, who successfully defended her first Grand Slam title at last year's tournament, and World #3-ranked player Maria Sharapova.
