Twenty years ago, the first tennis tour was announced and launched, and the tour of Australia was launched just two weeks after.
That meant the world was getting its first glimpse of the world’s top players and the first glimpse at the new era of Australian tennis.
Now, ten years later, the tour is officially set to begin, and we’re here to find out where and when you can watch it.
It’s been a long, long time coming, but here’s everything you need to know about the first Australian tour of the 2020-21 season.
What is a tour?
A tour is a five-day international competition between a nation’s top five players from a year and a half’s time.
It is the pinnacle of the game.
Tennis is the world sport and Australian tennis is the premier one, with one of the highest-paid players in the world in the form of Roger Federer, who will earn more than $100m in 2019-20.
The tour has become so popular in recent years that it is even being played in its original form, the women’s tennis tournament.
The ATP tour is the official women’s competition in the United States and the US women’s tour, which has grown in popularity over the last few years, is a similar, if less lucrative, event.
What are the tour opponents?
Twenty-three nations are represented in the tour, including Australia, Argentina, Brazil, China, England, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, South Africa, Spain, the United Arab Emirates, and Uruguay.
These are countries that the Australian Open and US Open have dominated for years, but they are joined by four new teams in the US: the US Women’s Open, US Men’s Open and Australian Open, which will be played in late June in New York City.
They will be the only four-team tour in the country and will be joined by the US Masters, the UK Open and the Australian Women’s Tour.
The US Open is being held at the US Olympic Training Centre in Seattle.
What time is the Australian tour starting?
The tour starts on Monday, June 2, 2019 at 8:30pm local time.
The first round will be a men’s match on the Australian Centre Court and then the second round will take place on the same court.
The top-ranked player from each match will be awarded a trophy.
If a player qualifies, he or she will play against the next-ranked opponent.
Who is playing?
Twenty players will play in the first round of the tour and the top-three will qualify for the next round.
Players will be selected by the ATP on a first-come, first-served basis, so if the top three players qualify, there is a chance for everyone to advance to the second-round.
If no top-two player from the first-round qualifies, the second match will continue, and so on until there are three players left in the tournament.
What can I watch?
There are two official streams of the Australian Tour: the ATP and US Tennis Tour.
In the ATP stream, players can watch their matches live on their own screens in front of a live crowd.
The UTS streams are available for viewing via your own TV, but are also available for a pay-per-view option.
You can watch the live feed on the ATP website.
The live stream of the US Tennis tournament will be available for free streaming online, and can be viewed on a variety of devices, including Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast and Amazon Fire TV.
What do I need to do?
You’ll need an internet connection.
You’ll also need to purchase an online ticket for the US tour.

What happens next?
Tennis fans will get to see their favourite players and coaches in action in the same venue as they did 10 years ago.
The next Australian tour will take them to the US Open, where they will face off against the reigning US champion, Serena Williams.
In addition to this, Australian tennis will take on China and South Africa in the Australian Opens and the ATP Tour Finals, with the top two from each event advancing to the quarter-finals.
The Australian Open will be followed by the Women’s Tennis Tour, the US Men/Wimbledon, the Australian Masters, and finally the Australian WTA Tour.
