LOS ANGELES, June 25, 2024 – Tennis Channel will again have nightly coverage during the two weeks of Wimbledon, the sport’s oldest major tournament, beginning at 5 p.m. ET most evenings  July 1-14.  In all, the network plans close to 65 unique hours for the most prestigious grass-court event in tennis, including six-hour and four-hour match segments, analysis, interviews, news and feature reporting – along with Hall of Famers Martina Navratilova (@Martina), Lindsay Davenport (@LDavenport76) and Jim Courier.

With encore replays in addition to first-run programming, Tennis Channel will devote more than 184 hours to Wimbledon in 2024.  From Monday, July 1, through Monday, July 8, original coverage will begin at 5 p.m. ET and run for six hours.  As the second week is underway, telecasts will begin at 4 p.m. ET Tuesday, July 9, and Wednesday, July 10; 3 p.m. ET Thursday, July 11, and Friday, July 12; and 6 p.m. ET Saturday, July 13, and Sunday, July 14.  The network’s Wimbledon schedule can be found at: www.tennischannel.com/schedule.

This year marks Tennis Channel’s 16th year at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club since 2008, as Wimbledon was not held in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Navratilova’s name is synonymous with Wimbledon.  She is the only player, woman or man, to win nine singles titles there, and has an additional seven doubles crowns and four mixed-doubles championships at the event on her unparalleled resume as well.  Davenport also lifted the singles-champion’s Rosewater Dish in 1999, the same year she won the doubles tournament.  No stranger to success, Courier advanced to the Wimbledon singles final in 1993.  All three will be back on Tennis Channel this year to offer their unique perspectives on what it takes to succeed at Wimbledon and what they see from this year’s contenders.

They will be joined by announcers Brett Haber (@BrettHaber) and Steve Weissman (@Steve\Weissman); and Jon Wertheim (@jon\wertheim), author, Sports Illustrated editor and CBS’ 60 Minutes correspondent, who will provide special reports throughout the tournament.  As host of Tennis Channel’s on-site tournament desk, Weissman will be joined by Navratilova and Wertheim.

Tennis Channel will follow Wimbledon on its Tennis.com and social media platforms, as well as its Tennis Channel Podcast Network (https://www.tennis.com/news/podcasts/).  Viewers can also win prizes by playing the channel’s free Match Point Predictor Game and “Racquet Bracket” during the tournament.
