When is Wimbledon 2019? Full dates, order of play today, TV coverage and how to get tickets
How can I watch on TV?
Wimbledon will be broadcast live on on BBC One, BBC Two and the BBC Red Button, while it will be available to stream online via livestreamonlinetv.
Wimbledon 2019 is upon us, and with it comes the onset of strawberries and cream season, unspeakable amounts of day drinking and involuntary cries of ‘Come on Tim!’
Andy Murray (or ‘Tim’, as that one embarrassing dad in the crowd invariably calls him) will feature in the doubles at this year’s tournament as he continues his rehabilitation from a debilitating hip injury.
The two-time Wimbledon champion announced his plans to retire earlier this year, but left the door open for an emotional swansong in SW19 and excelled at Queen’s to win the men’s doubles alongside Feliciano Lopez.
Novak Djokovic is the favourite to win the men’s singles, with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal also among the contenders. Australian number one seed Ashleigh Barty is tipped to triumph in the women’s singles, although as usual Serena Williams is in the mix alongside Angelique Kerber, Petra Kvitova and Naomi Osaka.
Djokovic and Kerber are the defending champions, with the former steamrollering Kevin Anderson in the 2018 men’s final and the latter beating Williams to claim the third Grand Slam of her career.
Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s tournament, including how to watch it and where to get tickets.
