Where to watch Wimbledon 2024: TV channel guide and schedule

Wimbledon has arrived once more as Carlos Alcaraz and Marketa Vondrousova return to the Championships as defending champions.

With much of the build-up to the Championships dominated by the uncertainty around the fitness of former champions Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic, Alcaraz’s stunning victory in last year’s final signalled the arrival of the next generation at SW19.

Alcaraz defeated Djokovic in five sets to become the first Wimbledon champion outside of Djokovic, Murray, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in 22 years, while Vondrousova was a surprise champion and became the first unseeded winner of the women’s title.

With Djokovic’s fitness uncertain, Alcaraz had been set to face competition from men’s world No 1 Jannik Sinner, before he was knocked out by Daniil Medvedev. The Italian won his first grand slam title at the Australian Open at the start of the year, with Alcaraz winning his third at the French Open last month.

With top seed Iga Swiatek out, the women’s draw looks set for another wide-open tournament. Emma Raducanu was knocked out in the fourth round by qualifier Lulu Sun.
