Eurosport har fået en aftale med IEC Sports i hus, og sikrer sig derfor de nordiske rettigheder til tennisturneringen Stockholm Open.

”Vi er utrolig glade for, at Eurosport med sin stærke tennisprofil og brede seergrundlag i Norden har valgt at sende Stockholm Open”, siger Managing Director for Stockholm Open Christer Hult. ”Med Eurosport som Host Broadcaster sikres både en bred og højkvalitets tv-produktion af en af Sveriges mest klassiske idrætsbegivenheder", fortsætter han.

Eurosports faste tenniskommentator Michael Mortensen er træner for finske Jarkko Nieminen, der skal konkurrere om titlen i den svenske hovedstad med spillere som Thomas Berdych, Gael Monfils, Grigor Dimitrov og Fernando Verdasco. Eurosport sender LIVE fra turneringen, som spilles fra d. 13. oktober til d. 19 oktober.
