How to Watch Wimbledon 2021 Without Cable

After being canceled last year due to the ongoing pandemic, the Wimbledon Championships are scheduled to take place over the next two weeks. The historic Grand Slam tennis tournament will see some of the best men and women to ever play the sport at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London, United Kingdom. They will be competing for a chance to be etched in history with the singles champion earning a prize of approximately 2.4 million.

Big names that are scheduled to compete include Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Serena Williams, and Ashleigh Barty. However, this year’s event will be without Naomi Osaka and Rafael Nadal as they are preparing for the upcoming Olympics.
