The unique tennis league gives tennis a new platform that has never existed before.
On court coaching will be allowed and players will carry themselves more freely on-court thanks to a lightened code of conduct.
“There is a time for analysis and a time for action. I would like the fans to benefit from better access to the players’ emotions, especially on the court where the code of conduct is a significant obstacle to that,” Patrick Mouratoglou.
While UTS’ overall concept creates a playful environment for coaches, players and fans to thrive in, this is strictly competitive tennis and not an exhibition. At the same time, everyone plays a part in the captivating show.
Through this engaging and interactive format, fans will inevitably feel closer and better connected to the stars of tennis.
The UTS will distribute a sizeable income among the players participating. With a significant purse on the line for players competing in matches and its state-of-the-art playing environment, the UTS league has the potential of becoming the world’s most exciting tennis competition.
