(PRWEB UK) 8 September 2013
Winning the US Open again will not be easy for Murray who would need to overcome the world number one Novak Djokovic in a semi-final before defeating in-form Rafael Nadal the world number two. Tennis.co.uk has been providing live scores and data as it happens from New York at the USTA Billie Jean King National Sport Center.
Despite another early Grand Slam departure for Roger Federer, it has to be said that the ATP US Open has been more or less going to form with a fit and rejuvenated Nadal continuing on his winning streak and looking like the hot favourite. Tennis.co.uk has been closely following the progress of Murray with a huge amount of content, including video, live data, stats and features.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait, had this to say: “We have been in a position to provide what we think is the best coverage online for tennis with our newly launched tennis.co.uk site. The Murray effect continues to surprise and we have seen a doubling of traffic to the relaunched site, much of which is interested in following Murray’s progress at the US Open.”
Simon Boynton, Managing Director of DSG, believes that following Andy Murray as he takes on the world has brought new fans to tennis.co.uk and tennis in general. “Everyone loves a winner, especially a British winner. We have been putting the fan into the action of the court with news, stats, features interviews and video on tennis.co.uk.”
