Watching tennis is a pastime millions of fans enjoy every year and has made tennis one of the most popular sports on the planet. Fans who play tennis casually almost certainly watch tennis online and on TV during the Grand Slam events.
Tennis live stream and betting
The sport has produced some of the biggest celebrities in the world, meaning tennis has transcended sport and attracts fans who wouldn’t usually follow the game. Indeed, many fans look out for the tennis TV schedule in preparation for major tournaments, so they can follow the individual players they’ve grown to adore.
Grand Slam tennis
The four biggest tennis tournaments on the planet make up the Grand Slams. These are the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open. The world of tennis descends on these tournaments for a fortnight and draws a huge tennis TV viewership. Indeed, the tennis schedules are wiped clean for the Slams, with full attention from the professional ranks aimed at Melbourne, Paris, London or New York.

Tennis at the Olympics
Tennis was added to the Olympics in 1984, having previously been part of the inaugural competition back in 1896. Tennis at the Olympics has proved wildly popular and there are five gold medals to be won: men’s singles and doubles, women’s singles and doubles, mixed doubles. Landing an Olympics tennis medal is rare and only a handful of players can every boast of the achievement.
Andy Murray claimed Olympics tennis gold in 2012 and 2016, while Venus and Serena Williams were doubles champions in 2008 and 2012. Roger Federer boasts a men’s doubles gold from 2008 but to date has never won the singles medal.
ATP Tour betting
Betting on the ATP Tour is a great way to get closer to the action. And Unibet TV offers you the chance to watch and bet on the biggest games each season. The ATP Tour is the pinnacle of men’s professional tennis, with players competing all over the world. The Tour starts on the Australian hard courts, takes in the clay of South America and Europe, the Sunshine Swing in North America, the lush green grass of Wimbledon and eventually the indoor hard courts in the autumn.
Men’s tennis has been dominated by heavy serves, exceptional skill and gruelling stamina. Players who can keep in points no matter what - such as Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic - can grind out results every day. That’s what makes them great champions and is why fans flock to watch tennis online and bet on the very best.

Best tennis players in history
You have to be a special tennis player to win one Grand Slam in your career. But the likes of Margaret Court, Serena Williams and Roger Federer have pushed the boundaries to their limit. Court boasts the most Grand Slam singles titles of all time, with 24 to her name. As of 2019, Williams has 23, while Federer boasts the most men’s titles with 20. Other icons such as Rafael Nadal (19) and Novak Djokovic (16) are knocking on Federer’s door, with the early 21st century being dominated by what is dubbed the Big Three.
Venus Williams, Steffi Graff, Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert all rose to the height of the WTA during their careers. And they gave fans who bet on tennis plenty of opportunity to back them down the years.
Men’s tennis before the era of Federer, Nadal and co was dominated by Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi and - before them - Björn Borg and Jimmy Connors. Who will emerge from the next generation of men to topple the Big Three we are still waiting to see!
