A new Netflix series will offer a look at life inside the competitive sport of professional tennis through the perspective of the players and their teams.

The SVOD service has teamed up with the four Grand Slam tournaments, the ATP Tour, WTA Tour and ATP Media, and will take cameras behind the scenes of the two tours, the Australian Open, Roland-Garros, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.

“We are excited to continue bolstering our lineup of sports programming with this behind-the-scenes documentary series,” Brandon Riegg, Netflix VP of unscripted and documentary series, said in a statement. “Tennis is beloved all over the world, with high-stakes tournaments hopping across continents and athletes hailing from countless countries. Through this historic partnership with the four Grand Slam tournaments, the ATP Tour, WTA Tour, and ATP Media, the series will be packed with rare access and rich personal stories that are sure to draw in longtime fans and new audiences alike.”
