How to watch Wimbledon 2024 for free: Schedule, TV and live streaming (2024)

The third grand slam tennis tournament of the year is underway as Wimbledon 2024 kicked off today, July 1, with the first day of round one matches.

In just two weeks, a field of 128 men and 128 women will narrow until a men’s champion and a women’s champion remain. Both of last year’s singles champions, Carlos Alcaraz and Markéta Vondroušová, are back this year, along with Iga Świątek, who won the French Open just a few weeks ago (Alcaraz enters Wimbledon as the defending French Open champ as well).
