How to watch the Wimbledon Final: Roger Federer vs Novak Djokovic

Roger Federer takes on old foe Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon Final at 2pm on Sunday

The 2019 Wimbledon Championship Final take place on Sunday, 14 July, at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London.

Roger Federer faces defending champion Novak Djokovic in the Gentleman’s Singles Final. Federer – often considered one of the greatest players in the sport – has won eight Wimbledon titles, while Djokovic has won four.

The game, which starts at 2pm tomorrow, will be shown live on the BBC in the UK.

Tomorrow is also the day of the Cricket World Cup Final and the British Grand Prix.

Simona Halep defeated Serena Williams to win her first Wimbledon title.

The only significant change to the rules this year is that it will be the first version of the tournament to feature a tie-break if the score is tied at 12-12 in the final set.

This rule change was partly brought about because of last year’s semi-final between John Isner and Kevin Anderson, which lasted over six and a half hours.

The final set ended at 26-24 in favour of the South African, who then lost the final to Novak Djokovic.

How to watch Wimbledon in the UK: BBC TV, iPlayer and Radio

How to watch Wimbledon anywhere in the world: Use a VPN

If you’re away from the country and want to watch Wimbledon live as if you were browsing from your couch, you’ll need to use a virtual private network (VPN). These cross-platform services spoof your devices into thinking that you’re browsing from your home country.

ExpressVPN: There are many VPN services, but the one we most highly rate and recommend is ExpressVPN. You can install it on your PC, Mac, Android and iOS devices and use it on three devices at the same time, which is ideal for a family or a group of friends to live stream Wimbledon on their own devices. Apart from that, it has a wide range of servers in different countries and consistently fast speeds.

Surfshark VPN: Another recent favourite is Surfshark VPN. Unlike ExpressVPN, this one doesn’t have any restrictions on the number of devices you can use it on, but its speeds are slower. If you ever encounter a problem or need general help, you can contact its 24/7 customer support, who will promptly help you out. Despite being one of the newer VPNs on the block, it has an impressive set of features that will only get better over time. Best of all, its three-year plan is the cheapest we’ve seen.

Watch the Wimbledon Final outdoors in London

Many UK cities broadcast the Championships on large outdoor screens. While this isn’t the same feeling as being on Henman Hill, or Murray Mound, it’s a great way to enjoy the tennis while getting some much-needed sunshine.

Many of these places also have deck chairs that you can rent and food stalls nearby to complete a nice day out.

If you’ve travelled to London to watch Wimbledon – or simply live in the city – here’s a list of some large outdoor screens that will broadcast the Wimbledon Championships from 1 July to 14 July.

It’s a good idea to check the respective websites for details of whether the game will be broadcast on that day because many of these outdoor screenings can be subject to last-minute changes, and some outdoor screenings only last for portions of the tournament.

Similarly, other UK cities will have their own outdoor screening arrangements.
