Wimbledon 2014 TV schedule begins Monday, June 23, with live tournament action airing on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNEWS and ESPN3 through July 6.
The most prestigious Grand Slam tennis tournament returns to the All England Club June 23-July 6 for the Wimbledon championships. Top ladies Serena Williams, Li Na, Agnieszka Radwanksa, Simona Halep and Victoria Azarenka hope to advance to the final. After a disastrous French Open, Williams looks to rebound and win her sixth career Wimbledon title. There won’t be a repeat champion, as France’s Marion Bartoli retired a month after winning at Wimbledon last year. For the men, expect Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Stanislas Wawrinka, Roger Federer and David Ferrer to be in the title hunt. Last year, Andy Murray became the first British man to win Wimbledon in 77 years with a victory over the top-seeded Djokovic.
ESPN’s exclusive coverage begins Monday, June 23, at 6:30am ET on ESPN3 (TV coverage begins at 7am ET on ESPN). ESPN3 will air 1,000 hours of Wimbledon coverage, while ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNEWS combine for 140 hours. ESPN airs the ladies’ championship Saturday, July 5, and the gentlemen’s championship Sunday, July 6.
Tennis Channel’s coverage of Wimbledon features nightly Wimbledon Primetime shows with news, commentary, analysis, interviews and more each evening of competition, typically with two editions at 4pm ET and 7:30pm ET, plus late-night and early morning reairs. Tennis Channel will also televise the U.S. premiere of BBC documentary Andy Murray: Behind the Racquet on Saturday, June 21, at 10pm ET.
