The First Serve is your HOME OF TENNIS.

Featuring an all year round dedicated weekly one hour 'live’ tennis program, the only one of its kind on commercial radio in Australia that is also podcast right here plus commentary from the Grand Slams & Fed Cup/Davis Cup ties, themed podcasts, a strong online/social media presence and print content via our website. The First Serve has one simple aim and that is to keep the tennis conversation going 12 months of the year, covering tennis from the grassroots to the elite.

Based out of Melbourne, Australia, home of the Australian Open, The First Serve covers the Australian tennis scene, but also the game globally attracting listeners from all around the world. The First Serve speaks to those at the coalface of tennis all over the world.

Heading up The First Serve coverage is leading tennis commentator Brett Phillips. Brett is host of our dedicated one-hour weekly radio show, leading commentator at all the Grand Slams & Fed Cup/Davis Cup ties, on the ground at all the key tennis tournaments through the year providing tennis content via radio, podcasts, online and in print. Through the summer of tennis in Australia, Brett currently serves as Court Announcer on Rod Laver Arena at the Australian Open, and in January of 2020 served as Court Announcer for the inaugural ATP Cup in Sydney.

This podcast may use dynamic content insertion

Stats: Statistics are produced by Whooshkaa to help The First Serve to understand how many downloads it is getting, or how many people are listening. Your device’s IP address and user agent is used to help calculate this figure. Whooshkaa is IAB v2 certified.

Dynamic content insertion: Whooshkaa may use limited data that they know about you - the device you’re using, the approximate location you’re in, or other data that can be derived from this, like the current weather forecast for your area - to change parts of the audio. The First Serve may do this for advertising or for other forms of content, like news stories.

The First Serve is able to use the above tools since its podcast host or measurement company offers this service. It doesn’t mean that this individual podcast uses them, or has access to this functionality. We use open data.

Technical advice
Podcast episode titles seem to include episode numbers, which is against Apple Podcasts guidelines and makes it harder to listen to your podcast on smart speakers. Here is what Apple wants to do, and why.
This podcast’s audio is not on an IPv6-enabled domain. This isn’t an issue for now, but might be in future. (We tested the initial domain of media.whooshkaa.com, which may be an analytics prefix.)
