Seven West Media CEO Tim Worner has confirmed that the Seven Network will broadcast cricket and tennis during the 2018-19 summer, despite some Test and Big Bash League matches being scheduled at the same time as the Australian Open. Nine Entertainment Company will take over tennis broadcasting rights in 2020, and there had been speculation that the two networks would cut a deal for Nine to commence its tennis coverage a year earlier.
