PremierLeague-News.Com - Djokovic is out to defend his men’s Wimbledon title, while Barty’s retirement has thrown the women’s singles wide open
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The green of SW19 is a familiar sight for one fortnight every year on the BBC.The broadcaster has televised Wimbledon in the UK since 1937, with viewers accustomed to switching between BBC One and BBC Two whenever Sue Barker makes the command.In recent years, the BBC had added a comprehensive streaming service to its Wimbledon coverage, allowing tennis fans to select the court of their choosing and watch the grand slam on the go.The BBC extended its exclusive rights until 2027, while this year will be the last of Barker fronting the coverage.More from TennisNadal's injury punt, Raducanu uncertainty and why Andy Murray is so dangerous at Wimbledon20 June, 2022Berrettini warns Djokovic he will be much better if he gets rematch of Wimbledon 2021 final19 June, 2022Berrettini proves he is a Wimbledon challenger to Djokovic with impressive Queen's triumph19 June, 2022 How to watch Wimbledon 2022 on the BBC Wimbledon runs from Monday 27 June to Sunday 10 July and will be live on the BBC from 11am daily (10.30am on day one), with coverage on BBC One, BBC Two and BBC iPlayer. Multi-court coverage is available to stream on BBC iPlayer, the red button, the BBC Sport app and the BBC Sport website. The daily “Today at Wimbledon” highlights show will be on BBC Two and across their digital platforms at 8.30pm. As the anchor since 2000, Barker has witnessed first-hand the rise of the Williams sisters, as well as Roger Federer’s domination of the men’s singles in the 2000s.She was there to console Andy Murray after his defeat to Federer in 2012, and then interviewed the Briton after his triumphs on home soil in 2013 and 2016.More recently, Novak Djokovic has emerged as the man to beat on grass, while Serena Williams’ inevitable decline has made for an utterly unpredictable fortnight of action in the women’s singles.In this, Barker’s final year, it remains to be seen who she will be interviewing on-court on the final weekend of Wimbledon, but until then we can always speculate. The BBC’s Wimbledon team Sue Barker will be joined by a host of former Wimbledon champions for the BBC’s coverage, including John McEnroe, Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King and Pat Cash.

Djokovic enters the tournament as the men’s favourite, having won the past three editions, and the 35-year-old will be aiming to hold off an ever-improving younger generation when chasing a seventh Wimbledon triumph.Rafael Nadal, meanwhile, last won Wimbledon in 2010, but is gunning for a third grand slam of the year – fitness permitting.In the women’s singles, Serena Williams is back, but just how the 40-year-old is faring is anyone’s guess given she has not played since pulling out of Wimbledon last year.As an unseeded wildcard, the seven-time winner will pose as an unwanted opponent for the top-ranked players in the early rounds, with Williams a 14-time quarter-finalist at Wimbledon alone.

The spotlight will also be on current world No 1 Iga Swiatek, who is deemed the women’s favourite given she is on a red-hot run of form having extended her winning streak to 35 matches when storming to French Open glory.More on WimbledonNadal's injury punt, Raducanu uncertainty and why Andy Murray is so dangerous at Wimbledon20 June, 2022Berrettini warns Djokovic he will be much better if he gets rematch of Wimbledon 2021 final19 June, 2022Berrettini proves he is a Wimbledon challenger to Djokovic with impressive Queen's triumph19 June, 2022Swiatek is, however, arguably at her most vulnerable on grass, with the 21-year-old having played just eight matches on the surface at the top level.The Polish player exited in the fourth round at Wimbledon last year, and will count Coco Gauff, Naomi Osaka and Simona Halep among her closest challengers this year given defending champion Ashleigh Barty has retired.Follow i sport on Facebook for more tennis news, interviews and features, or listen to the Love Tennis Podcast presented by i‘s James Gray on iTunes, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts
