We head to the third round of Wimbledon today — aside from a few delayed Round 2 matches that still need to be finished — with winners advancing to the coveted round of 16 at the most prestigious Grand Slam of the year. On the Centre Court schedule today are women's No. 3 Ons Jabeur, men's No. 1 Novak Djokovic, and England's highest seed in No. 9 Cam Norrie, who gets the primetime spot in a matchup against the American with the best mustache, Steve Johnson. We're deep enough into the tournament that we're going to see seeded players square off, including No. 5 Carlos Alcaraz vs. No. 32 Oscar Otte and No. 10 Jannick Sinner vs. American No. 20 John Isner. There are no more easy matches from here on, folks. 

Looking ahead to Saturday, we should see some fireworks from the Nick "The Llama" Kyrgios and No. 4 Stefanos Tsitsipas match, and a lot of eyes will be on two-time Wimbledon champion and No. 25 Petra Kvitova as she battles No. 4 Paula Badosa. That's a coin flip between two hard hitters. A reminder: Weekend TV coverage of Wimbledon is split between ABC and ESPN.

As one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments, The Championships, Wimbledon was founded in 1877 and is the oldest tennis tournament in the world. Commonly known as the world's most prestigious tennis tournament, Wimbledon has been held at the All England Club since 1877 and is the only major tournament played on grass.

In 2021, Novak Djokovic won the Men's Singles tournament, and he'll be returning this year to defend his crown; however, Women's Singles winner Ashleigh Barty will not, as she announced her retirement from the sport back in March. Due to the Ukraine war, Wimbledon has banned tennis players from Russia and Belarus in 2022, meaning Daniil Medvedev, Andrey Rublev, and Aryna Sabalenka will not be competing this year. As a result, the ATP and WTA made the decision to strip this year's Wimbledon from ranking points.

How to Watch the 2022 Wimbledon Championships

Watch Wimbledon 2022 on ABC and the ESPN family

The easiest way to watch Wimbledon is on ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, and ESPN+, which have exclusive rights to air live matches from the 2022 Wimbledon Championships. (Tennis Channel will be airing a replay of select match segments throughout the tournament.) During the week, ESPN or ESPN 2 will air matches, and on the weekend, Wimbledon action will air on ABC and ESPN. ESPN can also be watched on the ESPN app (available on smartphones, tablets, portable devices, and smart TVs) if you want to watch Wimbledon on the go.

ESPN3, which is available to all ESPN subscribers — whether you have ESPN through a cable package or a streaming TV service — via the ESPN app, will air several select matches throughout the tournament and is your best bet for watching full matches on the smaller courts. 

ESPN+, the ESPN subscription streaming service, also has supplemental matches. However, ESPN+ does not carry the ESPN broadcast, which may limit which matches you can watch. Subs cost $6.99 per month and can be canceled at any time. (Just remember to cancel after Wimbledon is over.) For more information on ESPN+, look below.
