New Weekly Aust Tennis Show on Channel 7, starts in less than 3 weeks!
The countdown to Australian Open 2005 begins on Seven with the premiere of SLAM! ROAD TO THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN on Sunday October 3.
SLAM! ROAD TO THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN is a new tennis show which will screen weekly in the lead up to the Centenary Australian Open (January 17 - 30).
The first program will go to air at 11am, before moving to a regular 12 noon slot from Sunday October 10. The show will be hosted by recently retired tour players Josh Eagle, Andrew Florent and Sandon Stolle.
SLAM! will be an informative look at the world of tennis, with a particular focus on Australian Open 2005.
As well as an in-depth look at the WTA & ATP Tours, SLAM! will present exclusive interviews with tennis legends like John McEnroe, Martina Navratilova and Mats Wilander, and a host of modern day stars.
Producer Harvey Silver envisages SLAM! to have endless potential. Says Silver "Tennis is one of Australia's most successful sports, with the popularity and profiles of many tennis stars transcending their sport. "
Australian TV currently has 14 weekly shows dedicated to Aussie Rules and only one for tennis, so we believe we are filling a gaping hole in the current sports coverage."
SLAM! ROAD TO THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN Premieres on Seven on Sunday October 3 at 11am.
