To tweet this release: 

TORONTO (June 19, 2014) – TSN serves up complete coverage of WIMBLEDON as Canadian rising stars Genie Bouchard and Milos Raonic look for Grand Slam glory on the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club’s famous grass courts. Fans can follow 150+ hours of WIMBLEDON coverage across TSN platforms – TSN, TSN2, TSN GO, and TSN Radio.

French-language coverage of WIMBLEDON is available on RDS.

As the undisputed Canadian home of the biggest events on the tennis calendar, TSN continues its exclusive coverage of Grand Slam tennis following record ratings from the FRENCH OPEN – including more than 1.5 million unique viewers on TSN and RDS for Bouchard’s semifinal match against her childhood idol Maria Sharapova.

The network’s daily live WIMBLEDON coverage begins on Monday, June 23 at 7 a.m. ET on TSN and includes the men’s and women’s Early Round and Round of 16 matches, along with the quarter-finals, semifinals and Finals (see broadcast schedule below).

TSN also goes beyond its television broadcast coverage of WIMBLEDON, offering TSN subscribers multi-court live streaming throughout the early rounds via TSN GO. Live streaming coverage begins daily at 6:30 a.m. ET.

In addition, TSN Radio stations across the country will have live coverage of select matches (visit each station’s homepage for broadcast schedules).

Throughout the tournament, TSN2 delivers daily evening recaps of the action with WIMBLEDON PRIMETIME. Returning to TSN once again is the iconic BREAKFAST AT WIMBLEDON – an on-site, pre-match show providing an overview of the day’s matches and interviews with players, plus analysis of the matches already completed. 

TSN’s Mark Masters is on-site in London to follow Bouchard and Raonic and deliver reports from the tournament for SPORTSCENTRE, Canada’s most-watched sports news program. Masters begins his WIMBLEDON reports this Saturday with a sit-down interview with Bouchard to discuss her recent success and newfound fame. Masters will also contribute written features and web-exclusive one-on-one interviews for TSN.ca.

After each coming off stellar runs at the FRENCH OPEN, Bouchard and Raonic will be challenged by some of the top tennis players in the game in WIMBLEDON.

Raonic is faced with overcoming a world-class men’s field featuring No. 1-seed Novak Djokovic, recent FRENCH OPEN champion Rafael Nadal, defending WIMBLEDON champion and homecrowd favourite Andy Murray, and seven-time WIMBLEDON champion Roger Federer.

Bouchard is up against a strong women’s side, led by No.1-seed and five-time WIMBLEDON champion Serena Williams, Li Na, and 2014 FRENCH OPEN champion Maria Sharapova.
