About Wimbledon live streaming

Whether you’re a die-hard tennis fan or just a casual punter, nobody wants to miss out on Wimbledon as the finest fortnight in the tennis calendar takes place in the first two weeks of July.

While it is one of four major championships which highlight the tennis season, Wimbledon commands global attention in a way that the other three sometimes fail to do. Instantly recognizable with its crisp green grass, players attired all in white and colour scheme of dark green and purple, Wimbledon is a unique blend of traditional and modern and has carved out a distinct brand identity for itself since the very first edition of the tournament was played in 1887 – and has become synonymous with tennis history. 

Many of the most memorable moments for any tennis fan, and indeed most that any casual fan could name, have taken place at Wimbledon, especially on the iconic Centre Court which has hosted remarkable champions from Rod Laver, who became the first Open Era champion in 1968 when the sport finally left ‘shamateurism behind’, to Roger Federer, who became the most successful male player in Wimbledon history when he won his eighth title in 2017. Arthur Ashe became the first black man to win Wimbledon in 1975; Bjorn Borg established an unprecedented five-year reign when he won the title every year from 1976 to 1980, famously facing off with John McEnroe in the last of those finals, a match that has been immortalized ever since thanks to the superb tennis and McEnroe’s dramatic cries of ‘You cannot be serious!’ and ‘Chalk flew up!’.

Boris Becker was a teenage sensation when he pounded his way to the title in 1985; Goran Ivanisevic claimed the title as a wildcard in 2001, an unlikely run that he claimed proved the existence of God; and Pete Sampras’s seven titles between 1993 and 2000 set an Open Era benchmark that looked unlikely ever to be bettered – that is, until a certain Roger Federer came along, defeating Sampras in 2001 and going on to win his first title in 2003. Federer would equal Borg’s five-year run in 2003-7, but his reign would be ended in dramatic style by Rafael Nadal, the King of Clay who learned to play on grass and eventually dethroned Federer in the 2008 men’s singles final, an unparalleled showcase for the modern era of men’s tennis which is widely considered to be the greatest match of all time. 

The love of the British crowds for their home players has always been a hallmark of Wimbledon, with the big-screen Aorangi Terrace promptly christened ‘Henman Hill’ thanks to the spectators who tried their best to roar Tim Henman on to becoming the first British man to win the title since Fred Perry in 1936. Henman never got beyond the quarterfinals, but Scotland’s Andy Murray proved a more than worthy successor as he finally ended the nation’s wait when he defeated Novak Djokovic in the 2013 final, repeating the feat in 2016. 

The wait for a British women’s champion goes on – but it also hasn’t been so long, with Virginia Wade the last to claim the Venus Rosewater Dish in 1977. The list of women’s champions, meanwhile, is as illustrious as the men, with the iconic Billie Jean King the first woman to win the title in the Open Era in 1968. 

Evonne Goolagong Cawley and Chris Evert would follow suit, but it was Evert’s great rival and friend Martina Navratilova who would ultimately match King’s record of 20 Wimbledon titles across singles, women’s and mixed doubles – although in Navratilova’s case, an incredible nine of her titles would come in singles, a record that has never yet been equalled. 

Navratilova also made an unprecedented 12 singles finals, including nine consecutive singles finals, before winning her last crown in 1990. Her run of six straight Wimbledon titles had already been ended by Steffi Graf, who would go on to win seven Wimbledon crowns herself – a record since equalled by Serena Williams. 

No family in history has ever built a legacy like that of the Williams sisters, Venus and Serena, at Wimbledon. Older sister Venus won five titles between 2000 and 2008 (and defied the odds to return to the final in 2017), while younger sister Serena equalled Graf with seven titles between 2002 and 2016. Moreover, the two would face off in four Wimbledon finals. In recent years, even as the excellence of the Williams sisters has continued, Czech and Spanish stars Petra Kvitova and Garbine Muguruza have also emerged as Wimbledon champions to continue their country’s legacy of success, following in the footsteps of Navratilova, Jana Novotna and Conchita Martinez.

With the men’s defending champion always opening play on day 1 of The Championships on Centre Court at the genteel hour of 1pm BST, Wimbledon’s respect for tradition is also demonstrated with the custom of no play on Middle Sunday, allowing the grass courts time to recover. This leads in turn to ‘Manic Monday’, widely considered the most unmissable day of the entire tennis season, with all 16 fourth-round matches played on the same day – allowing the men’s and women’s fields to alternate for the closing stages of the tournament until the women’s final is played on the closing Saturday afternoon, followed by the men’s on the Sunday. 

Wimbledon still continues to innovate, however – embracing live streaming and digital technologies, and improving its iconic grounds with the addition of a retractable roof built on Centre Court and first used in 2009. No. 1 Court is also being equipped with a retractable roof. This ensures that some matches at least can continue during even the most unclement weather – a blessing for spectators (and perhaps just as much for TV and online viewers). 

In addition to the centrepiece men’s and women’s singles, Wimbledon also features men’s, women’s and mixed doubles as well as the legends, juniors and wheelchair disciplines. All of these matches are also available to stream live online throughout the fortnight of The Championships.
