WIMBLEDON, England (AP)—Wimbledon is going 3-D.

The men’s semifinals and men’s and women’s finals at this summer’s tournament will be shown live by 3-D-capable movie theaters around the world. Wimbledon becomes the latest major sporting event to be available in 3-D.

The deal was announced Monday as part of the Wimbledon’s multiyear partnership with Sony.

All England Club chief executive Ian Ritchie says “Wimbledon is renowned for its heritage and sense of tradition. At the same time we are always looking for ways to improve the presentation of the championships by successfully blending that tradition with innovation.”
