Good Weekend brings back Tennis magazine ahead of the Australian Open

Tennis - Good Weekend

The magazine will feature insights from tennis stars Alex de Minaur, Elina Svitolina, and Ash Barty.

Good Weekend is bringing back the special edition magazine, Tennis, ahead of the Australian Open. The magazine will be published through The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald, and online through the BrisbaneTimes and WAtoday.

The publication, which was run for the first time last year, will feature insights into the lives of some of the most well-known elite athletes in the world, including 24-year-old Alex de Minaur, who is the first Australian male to make the Top 10 since Lleyton Hewitt.

Elsewhere in the issue, as global conflicts dominate headlines, Ukrainian player Elina Svitolina reveals how she’s playing for much more than trophies these days, as the 25th-ranked female player using the sport to shine a light on her war-torn country.   

Tennis also features stories on the new breed of Grand Slam mums, led by returning star Naomi Osaka; and the two big C’s of tennis – Carlos Alcaraz from Spain and American Coco Gauff.

2022 Australian Open Women’s Singles champion Ash Barty also chats about her life away from the court and asks if she’s missing the professional circuit after retirement. 

Good Weekend editor Katrina Strickland said her team is delighted to bring readers “so many great stories in this issue”.

“Not to mention a Tennis Quiz for die-hard fans and recipes for snacks to make for your tennis TV viewing.”

Jo Clasby, Nine’s director of Sales – Publishing, noted that Nine is uniquely placed to provide brands a range of access to consumers across Total Publishing, Television, Audio and Digital.

Clasby said: “As the official broadcaster of the Australian Open through to 2029, we are thrilled with the extension of our partnership into a print insert in The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, as well as for online readers of those mastheads together with BrisbaneTimes and WAtoday.

“After receiving such positive feedback about last year’s inaugural edition, we’re looking forward to many years of brand opportunities that the Tennis magazine will provide,” she added.

The 2024 Australian Open will kick off on Sunday, January 14 and air across Nine’s Channel 9HD and 9GemHD with streaming on 9Now.
