It’s all set up to be a Wimbledon Men’s Final classic as veteran Serb star Novak Djokovic battles it out with current world number 1 Carlos Alcaraz on Sunday.

Djokovic will be eyeing up an historic 24th Grand Slam win as well as drawing level with Roger Federer’s tally of eight Wimbledon triumphs.

A win for Alcaraz would meanwhile see the 20-year-old Spanish star claim his second Slam title while also signifying a changing of the guard of the men’s game. 

Below, we’ll outline the best live TV streaming services to use to watch Wimbledon live wherever you are in the world.

Carlos Alcaraz vs. Novak Djokovic: Where and when is it?

The 2023 Wimbledon Men’s Final is set to take place on Sunday, July 16, on Centre Court at the iconic All England Club in southwest London. Play is set to begin at 2 p.m. BST local time (9 a.m. ET, 6 a.m. PT in the US and Canada, and 11 p.m. AEST in Australia).

How to watch Carlos Alcaraz vs. Novak Djokovic online from anywhere using a VPN

If you find yourself unable to view Wimbledon locally, you may need a different way to watch the world’s greatest grass-court tennis players — that’s where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to stop your ISP from throttling your speeds on game day by encrypting your traffic, and it’s also a great idea if you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and you want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins.

With a VPN, you’re able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the game. Most VPNs, like our Editors’ Choice, ExpressVPN, make it really easy to do this.

Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US, UK and Australia, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you’re streaming. You should be sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even where VPNs are legal, the streaming service may terminate the account of anyone it deems to be circumventing correctly applied blackout restrictions.

Quick tips for streaming Wimbledon 2023 using a VPN 

  • With four variables at play — your ISP, browser, video streaming provider and VPN — your experience and success when streaming the tennis action live may vary.
  • If you don’t see your desired location as a default option for ExpressVPN, try using the “search for city or country” option.
  • If you’re having trouble getting the game after you’ve turned on your VPN and set it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address on file with your account. Second, some smart TVs — like Roku — don’t have VPN apps you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you’ll have to install the VPN on your router or the mobile hotspot you’re using (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network now appears in the correct viewing location.
  • All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with smart TV services, after you install a cable network’s sports app, you’ll be asked to verify a numeric code or click a link sent to your email address on file for your smart TV. This is where having a VPN on your router will also help, since both devices will appear to be in the correct location. 
  • And remember, browsers can often give away a location despite using a VPN, so be sure you’re using a privacy-first browser to log into your services. We normally recommend Brave.
