Federer vs Berdych: Time and how to live stream for free
The Federer vs Berdych match will follow Marin Čilić’s semi-final against Sam Querrey on Centre Court today and is provisionally scheduled for 2.30pm BST (9.30am ET).
In our experience, though, that start time seems unlikely to happen, unless the earlier match proves to a walkover for one of the players involved.
Rather, the first serve of Federer vs Berdych is more likely to be around 3-3.30pm, though note that that’s purely an educated guess.
When the match does start, also know that the BBC has the rights to Wimbledon here in the UK, and its coverage kicked off on BBC Two at 12.30pm BST, after which it will hop over to BBC One at 13.45pm for the rest of the afternoon.
Which means that it’s totally free – and legal, for UK TV license holders at least – to live stream the match online, whether you’re using a phone, tablet, or PC.
To watch (or listen to) the coverage online, simply make your way over to the BBC iPlayer website, or download the iPlayer app on your mobile device.

Fear not, as there are a number of handy global options, including ESPN’s website over in the States, where you can watch the match online provided you have the right cable TV subscription, and Fox Sports in Australia.
Indian streaming platform Hotstar, which may also work in other regions, is also worth a shout.
