Tennis fans in for a treat as Patrick Mouratoglou and Eurosport announce all-access documentary
Eurosport will kick-off their Australian Open coverage by screening a behind-the-scenes documentary following tennis super-coach Patrick Mouratoglou.
Mouratoglou, who coaches Serena Williams and runs an academy in his own name that boasts the likes of Stefanos Tsitsipas and Coco Gauff as products, allowed exclusive access throughout the 2019 season. Mouratoglou is also a regular contributor to tennishead magazine where he uses his exclusive column to open up debate on some of the most controversial topics in tennis.
And now, tennis fans can gain a peek into that world thanks to a 30-minute documentary, entitled Insider: Patrick Mouratoglou.
“I was keen to give fans a rare insight into what it is like to work in a high performance environment and I am delighted to be able to share my story with millions of sports fans across Europe on Eurosport,” Mouratoglou said.
“I am fortunate enough to work in an industry I love, working alongside some of the biggest names in tennis.
I hope this documentary gives fans an idea of what goes on behind-the-scenes in my life, whether that be working with some the top players in the world right through to my academy.”
