Patrick Mouratoglou announced the new tennis competition where we will be able to see up to 50 live tennis matches.

Mouratoglou sees that fans really want to see tennis at these times but don’t have it as both ATP and WTA Tour were suspended until 13th July 2020. Therefore, he has decided to come up with his own competition called the Ultimate Tennis Showdown (UTS).

The first match should start already on 16th May 2020. David Goffin should meet the co-founder of the event, Alexei Popyrin. Mouratoglou spoke about launching the new league:

“The UTS is simply meant to be an alternative to what already exists. It is a platform created to showcase the incredible talent, athleticism and personalities of the wide range of tennis players, it offers a new and innovative approach. It targets a younger tennis audience and proposes a different way to distribute the money among the players,” said Mouratoglou.

Co-founder, Alexei Popyrin also spoke about launching the new league. “There is no doubt that the Ultimate Tennis Showdown, with thrilling singles matches and millions of US dollars in prize money, has the potential to be the world’s most exciting tennis competition. Fans watching at home will feel closer than ever before to the stars of world tennis through our engaging format.”
