Won by the likes of Aussie great Roy Emerson, Swedish sensation Björn Borg and three-time Grand Slam champion Gustavo Kuerten, the Auckland Classic (a.k.a. the ASB Classic) has long been held in high regard. 

Held at the ASB Tennis Centre, the ATP 250 tournament takes place just a few weeks before the Australian Open and this year features some big hitters in the likes of Shelton, Fils, Canadian ace Felix Auger-Aliassime and last year’s surprise Wimbledon quarter-finalist Chris Eubanks. 

Shelton received a wildcard entry into the tournament last year and now returns as the top seed after a breakthrough 2023 season that saw him rise to number 17 in the world rankings. The 21-year-old reached the quarter-finals of the Australian Open and the semi-finals of the US Open last season and possesses a thunderous serve and powerful groundstrokes. 

As well as the young talent on show, the likes of British ace Cameron Norrie, Frenchman Gael Monfils, Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut and France’s Adrian Mannarino bring a wealth of experience and with numerous titles amongst them will provide a major threat. 

The women's final is this weekend, ahead of the start of the men's event on January 9. Check out all the TV and streaming details below to find out how to watch the 2024 Auckland Classic from anywhere.

It's natural that you might want to watch an Auckland Classic live stream via your preferred broadcaster and with your favourite pundits and commentators, but what if you're not at home when the game is on? With a virtual private network, or VPN, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town and access the same streaming services you already paid for. 

Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN. It offers superb speeds and excellent customer service. But you've got other VPN options as well. Here is our top pick.


Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 94 countries. A 30-day money-back guarantee is another bonus.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.
