It has been announced that Channel 9 in Australia will not be renewing their rights to cover The Wimbledon Championships next year.

Covering the year’s third Grand Slam for 40 years, Channel 9 has decided to focus its attention on more popular sports.

“Unfortunately it hasn’t rated well in recent years and we think that money is now better invested on other sporting properties,” said a spokesperson for Channel 9.

We arent too sure at the moment if this means either Channel 10, Channel 7 or the ABC, will be trying to secure the rights for the Wimbledon Championships 2011.
