Wimbledon, the world’s longest running tennis tournament, began on June 27 and continues through July 10. ESPN and ESPN+ are airing matches every day, and ABC is also offering free weekend broadcasts.
Wimbledon is the third Grand Slam tournament of the tennis season. Rafael Nadal won both the Australian Open and French Open in 2022, giving him a chance to capture a rare calendar-year Grand Slam with victories at Wimbledon and the US Open.
Novak Djokovic won his sixth Wimbledon championship in 2021 but dropped his own bid for the Grand Slam with a loss to Daniil Medvedev in the US Open final. Djokovic enters the fourth round of Wimbledon 2022 with 24 consecutive victories in the tournament dating back to 2018.
Iga Swiatek is the favorite to win the women’s tournament at Wimbledon after capturing the French Open; she has led the WTA tour with six tournaments so far this year. Swiatek defeated 18-year-old American Coco Gauff in the French Open finals; Gauff will face fellow American Amanda Anisimova in the third round of Wimbledon 2022.
Serena Williams returned to professional play after withdrawing from Wimbledon in 2021 due to injury, but lost in the first round after a three-hour match to Harmony Tan in a third set tie-break.
Where to watch the 2022 Wimbledon Championships
You can watch Wimbledon 2022 on ESPN, ESPN3, ESPN+, and ABC. Each network and service has select coverage, but the ESPN cable network is your best bet to catch the tournament’s biggest matches as they air.
Meanwhile, the ESPN+ streaming service ($7/month) and ESPN3
channel will both offer daily coverage with select matches from all 18 courts. ABC is also airing matches from the third round and round of 16 during the weekend of July 2, as well as encore broadcasts of the men’s and women’s finals.
If you don’t already have cable, you’ll need to use a live TV streaming service to access ESPN for the championship rounds of Wimbledon. At $35 a month, Sling TV’s Blue plan is the cheapest streaming option with ESPN. New members can get their first month for 50% off, so if you sign up now you can watch all of Wimbledon for $17.50.
YouTube TV ($65/month), Hulu + Live TV ($70/month), and FuboTV ($70/month) all include ESPN as well. All three services cost considerably more than Sling, however, but you do get more total channels for that extra cost.
