After the political kerfuffle of the 2022 event, Wimbledon is back to normal, and crowds heading to the event are bigger than ever.
But if you can’t get down to SW16 to see the action, the next best thing is to watch it at home in the highest quality possible.
So here’s how to watch Wimbledon 2023 in 4K HDR on the best TV you have in the house.
Wimbledon 2023 key details
Wimbledon 2023 started Monday July 3rd and action on the tennis courts will play through to until Sunday 16th when the men’s singles final takes place. The women’s singles event ends with the final the day before on Saturday July 15th.
Will Novak Djokovic triumph for a fifth win in a row, and equal Roger Federer’s record of 8 men’s titles? And on the women’s side, will defending champion Elena Rybakina retain the title she won last year? Ons Jabeur is vying to be her main competitor again from what we’ve seen so far.
In terms of British participation they’ll be no Emma Radacanu as she recovers from injury, but two-time winner Andy Murray will be battling once again on the green tennis courts, joined by the likes of Cam Norrie, Jodie Burrage and Liam Broady who will be hoping to make it past the first week.
