MELBOURNE – Netflix will play tennis after this.
The streaming service announced on Friday that it is planning a documentary series about Grand Slam tournaments and the professional tennis tours for men and women.
Netflix said it is partnering with the same London-based production company that created “Formula 1: Drive to Survive,” credited by many with increasing the popularity of that car racing circuit.
Shooting for the tennis series is underway at the Australian Open.
The first Grand Slam tournament of the year kicks off Monday – and the build-up has been filled with intrigue over whether Novak Djokovic, the number 1 in the rankings, will be allowed to stay in the country despite not being vaccinated.
