The action at SW19 kicks off Monday night (Australian time) with 16 Australians contesting the main singles draw, the strongest contingent of Aussies in twenty years. It will also be Lleyton Hewitt’s last Wimbledon singles campaign.
Australian tennis fans will be able to catch-all the action live from Wimbledon on the Seven Network and Fox Sports.
Seven’s broadcast will be hosted by Todd Woodbridge with expert commentary from three-time Wimbledon champion John Newcombe, along with Rennae Stubbs, Sam Smith and Geoff Masters. Seven will also utilise commentary from the host broadcaster the BBC.
During the tournament, Seven will show the best two matches live and free each day on 7TWO or Channel 7 and 7tennis.com.au, along with plenty of other top matches. During the first week the live broadcast kicks off at 8.30pm (AEST). From Day 8 to Day 11 the coverage begins at 10pm.
All singles and doubles finals, as well as the singles’ semi-finals, will be exclusively live on Channel 7, starting on 7TWO.
Seven’s coverage will also be available through its 7 Tennis app (available on iOS and Android devices) which has recently been launched as part of its 40 days of sport on your mobile live and free campaign.
