ESPN: Defending Champ Djokovic Opens Centre Court; Gauff vs. Venus in Battle of Generations

The Wimbledon fortnight commences tomorrow, Monday, July 1, with 64 singles matches on the docket and ESPN has all the action exclusively in the U.S. with ESPN, ESPN+ and ESPN3, all starting at 6 a.m. ET.  The matches from 14 courts on ESPN+ will include Court Two where the order of play begins with three-time Major champion #22 Stan Wawrinka, followed by 2018 Australian Open winner #14 Caroline Wozniacki, rising star #7 Stefanos Tsistipas and #3 Karolina Pliskova, a former #1 and one-time US Open finalist.

Overall, ESPN+ will stream live matches from 14 courts:  2-4, 6-11 and 14-18 (Court No. 17 only after the opening match with #17 Madison Keys finishes).

Meanwhile, ESPN will show defending champion #1 Novak Djokovic opening play at 8 a.m. on Centre Court against Philipp Kohlscreiber.  Second on Centre will be two-time Major champion #2 Naomi Osaka vs.Yulia Putitntseva, followed by No. 30 Kyle Edmund of Great Britain facing Jaume Munar.  The No. 1 Court – now outfitted with a retractable roof – also starts at 8 a.m. and will see #7 Simona Halep play Aliaksandra Sasnovich, #6 Alexander Zverev vs. Jiri Vesely and – in a compelling cross-generational matchup – at 15, the youngest-ever qualifier, American CoCo Gauff, will play 39-year old Venus Williams, the oldest woman in the draw.

ESPN’s day will start at 6 a.m. with the first match on Court 17, American #17 Madison Keys vs. Luksika Kumkhum.  The network will also have the action from Court 12 (includes American Caty McNally vs. Britain’s Heather Watson, Canadians #19 Felix Augur-Alisassime and #15 Milos Raonic and Alize Cornet vs. Victoria Azarenka).

ESPN & Wimbledon

As in 2018, every match from the 18 courts at the All England Lawn Tennis Club will be played in front of cameras.  ESPN’s coverage – first ball to last ball – includes 145 hours on television plus more than 500 matches  all available for fans between ESPN+ and ESPN3 on the ESPN app.  The action will climax with the Ladies’ Championship and the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s Doubles Championships on ESPN on Saturday, July 13, and the Gentlemen’s Championship on Sunday, July 14, followed by the Mixed Doubles Championship.

It was 33 years at ESPN for me as of November 2019 (the only job I’ve ever had) after joining merely to help with the America’s Cup for three months at a robust $5.50 per hour. I like to say I simply kept showing up. I’ve worked on almost every sport, plus answered viewer calls and letters (people used to write!), given tours, written the company newsletter and once drove NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon to the local airport. My travels have been varied…I’ve been to Martinsville and Super Bowls; the America’s Cup (all 3) in San Diego and College GameDay in the sport’s meccas such as Eugene, Auburn, Lubbock, Stillwater and more; the NBA Finals and Indy 500; Wimbledon (16 times and counting) and the “other Bristol,” the one with a race track in Tennessee. These days, in addition to overseeing the Fan Relations, Archives and ESPNPressRoom.com, my main areas are tennis, ratings, and corporate communications documents, including ESPN’s history and growth.
