Del Potro, Nadal, Federer, Murray Feature in Frantic February on Tennis TV

The gruelling heat of the Australian summer produced one of the most iconic, celebrated matches ever, between two of the greatest players (if not the greatest) of all-time in Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Australian Open organisers couldn’t have dreamed of a better finale in Melbourne, as the 35-year-old Swiss global icon battled past his ferocious, long-time Spanish nemesis and friend in five sets to claim a stunning 18th Grand Slam title.

And now, with that heart-warming opening to 2017, we motor on with the season as the calendar turns to February, with four ATP World Tour 500 tournaments featuring the world’s best leading the way. You’ll be able to watch up to 250 matches (geo-restrictions may apply) live and on-demand on Tennis TV, with all matches available to enjoy in the replays channel across all the different devices which Tennis TV is supported on.

After three ATP World Tour 250 events in the first week in Montpellier, Sofia and Quito, the 44th edition of the ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam will start on 13 February. Tournament director Richard Krajicek, the 1996 Wimbledon champion, will welcome 14-time major winner Nadal to the Dutch city, alongside Australian Open semi-finalists Stan Wawrinka and Grigor Dimitrov.

Marin Cilic, Dominic Thiem and Gael Monfils will also be part of a first-class line-up for the year’s first ATP World Tour 500-level event. Martin Klizan is the defending champion, embarking on a surprise, match-point-saving run in 2016 and ultimately beating Monfils in the final. Also in that Rotterdam week are 250 competitions in Memphis and Buenos Aires – where Kei Nishikori will look to grab his first title at the Argentina Open.

Golden Swing hits Rio (20-26 February)

Following the first clay-court event of the season in the Argentinian capital, the Golden Swing arrives in Brazil’s most famous city – Rio de Janeiro. Joining a clay-focused Nishikori in Rio will be last year’s semi-finalist Thiem. The 23-year-old Austrian plans to jet straight from Rotterdam to play in South America.

Milos Raonic and Juan Martin del Potro head the Delray Beach field in the same week, and unsurprisingly the line-up for the 250 tournament in Marseille is French-dominated. Monfils, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Richard Gasquet and Lucas Pouille will compete at Open 13 Provence. Defending champ Nick Kyrgios will also return to the event where he won his first career ATP World Tour title last year.

Near 24-hour, around-the- clock tennis from Dubai and Acapulco (27 February – 4 March)

Fresh from his glorious Australian Open triumph, Federer will return to ATP World Tour action at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, where he is a seven-time champion – most recently in 2015. World No. 1 Andy Murray will also play at the 500 tournament in Dubai, which will be his first competition since crashing out of Melbourne at the hands of serve-and-volleying Mischa Zverev.

Last year’s winner Wawrinka will be there too, along with Monfils and Tomas Berdych. In the same week, in a far-away time zone, Mexican paradise Acapulco will host the likes of Nadal, Raonic, Thiem, del Potro and David Goffin. Them captured the biggest title of his young career there last year.
