Airdate: Wimbledon 2023

Nine begins coverage from the All England Lawn Tennis Club Live on Monday.

Nine’s coverage of Wimbledon begins on Monday.

Wide World of Sports commentary team will include Nick McArdle, Jelena Dokic, Samantha Stosur, Brett Phillips and Brenton Speed, with Tony Jones, Todd Woodbridge and Alica Molik on the ground at Wimbledon.

Over two weeks, the cream of the crop will battle it out at the All England Lawn Tennis Club for the Gentlemen’s Singles Trophy and the Rosewater Dish for the women, all on Nine’s exclusive free coverage, with the action also available to stream ad-free, live and on-demand on Stan Sport.

After reaching the final in 2022, Nick Kyrgios (World No.33) is back to go one better this year. Alex de Minaur (World No.16), Jason Kubler, Alexei Popyrin, Chris O’Connell, Max Purcell, Jordan Thompson, Aleksander Vukic and Daria Saville round out the Aussie contingent.

Coming in undefeated from the first two majors of 2023, Novak Djokovic (World No.2) is chasing history. He has won the past four Championships and has the opportunity to equal Roger Federer’s remarkable record of eight Wimbledon titles. If Djokovic triumphs on Centre Court, it would mark the fourth time he has claimed three majors in a year – a feat no other male player has accomplished.

Ready to redeem himself will be World No.1 Carlos Alcaraz, who suffered from cramps in his recent semi-final against Djokovic at Roland Garros, while Britain’s hope Cameron Norrie (World No.13), who had a dream run to make the semi-finals last year, is another fancied contender.

In the women’s draw, reigning champion Elena Rybakina (World No.3) has had a strong year, making the Australian Open final and winning two Masters tournaments. World No.1 Iga Świątek is aiming to add a grass court major to her victory at Roland Garros, while Australian Open champion Aryna Sabalenka (World No.2) is a big threat.

Pre-show begins 7:30pm AEST Monday July 3 on 9GEM and moves to Nine following Rush.

  1. So the week commencing Mon 10 Jul, nine, have some Ashes cricket, Wimbledon and the final State of origin (admittedly a dead rubber). So no prizes for predicting which channel wins this week.
