- We are making this special effort because we know that many TV viewers long for live sports and a moment of entertainment and relaxation in a tough everyday life. Together with the sport, we also want to test new formats and production arrangements in order to find a way forward in an everyday life that will unfortunately look very different for a long time to come, says SVT's Sports Manager Åsa Edlund Jönsson.
The first Challenger Meeting will be decided on Sunday 10 May. Then Sweden's two best tennis players - brothers Mikael and Elias Ymer - meet in a match to decide who is the best in the country and family.
Little brother Mikael is ranked highest in the world rankings (place 68), but has never won a competition match against big brother Elias (ranked 201 in the world).
- We are very pleased that, despite difficult times, we will be able to play this match and settle on the family heritage at the same time for a good purpose and that the match can be seen in both Sweden and internationally, says Elias and Mikael Ymer in a joint statement .More challenger meetings await
The match will be played in the Royal Tennis Hall in Stockholm. A large number of measures have been taken to ensure that the event complies with the recommendations of the Public Health Authority.
Johan Ejeborg comments on the match together with guest expert Robin Söderling.
The next "Challenger Meeting" will be Sunday May 17, when it will be about table tennis. First out is Sweden's best player on the women's side, Linda Bergström, against 20-year-old Stina Källberg. Then Sweden's best men's player, Mattias Falck, is challenged by 18-year-old talent Truls Möregårdh.
