The BBC has secured an extension to its broadcast deal for the Nitto ATP Finals.

The extension will see the Finals broadcast live in 2019 and 2020.

The agreement is an exclusive free-to-air TV rights deal for eight singles matches, including one semi-final and the final, across the BBC’s online platforms.

It also includes non-exclusive radio rights for the whole tournament.

BBC director of sport Barbara Slater said: “We’re thrilled to extend our partnership with ATP ensuring top class tennis continues to reach the widest possible audience on free to air TV, radio and our live streaming service.”

Chris Kermode, ATP executive chairman and president, said: “The BBC has provided a terrific platform for our season finale since we moved the tournament to London in 2009, giving millions of fans in the UK the opportunity to watch the very best in men’s professional tennis. We’re delighted to extend our partnership a further two years through to 2020.”

The 2017 Nitto ATP Finals take place from 12-19 November.
