Eurosport in the UK will also show both the women’s and men’s singles finals live.
“Our coverage of Grand Slam tennis is as innovative as the new generation of players who are coming through the ranks at the moment,” declared Scott Young, SVP Content and Production at Warner Bros Discovery Sports Europe. “Some of these exciting and up-and-coming players come from the countries where we will be presenting Wimbledon. Our philosophy when presenting tennis has taken us closer to the players and those around them. We will be bringing our unmatched tennis expertise and world-class production to the tournament this year to scale live and on-demand coverage to millions of fans.”
“On top of this, we are looking forward to continuing our Grand Slam storytelling and will serve the best localised content to our audiences all over Europe via Eurosport.com as part of a 360-degree tennis experience.”
