Great insight behind the scenes at Eurosport on French Open coverage
8 June 2018
Over the past week, I have been captivated behind the scenes at Eurosport's French Open tennis coverage.
The week provided an enthralling insight into the workings of the London offices, including the studio gallery, social media team and graphics department. I also learnt about the logistics behind their live events.
Now owned and operated by Discovery Inc., Eurosport was founded in 1989. They are the exclusive pay TV rights broadcaster of the French Open in 13 key markets across Europe, including Spain and Italy. In the United Kingdom, coverage is hosted by Rob Curling.
On the court, Spaniard Rafael Nadal won an 11th French Open title by beating Austrian Dominic Thiem 6-4 6-3 6-2.
