Hosted by Tessa Bonhomme and Laura Diakun with on-site reports from Mark Masters, TSN’s daytime multi-court coverage of WIMBLEDON features live coverage of multiple matches airing at the same time, as well as post-match reports, analysis, news conferences, and highlights throughout the day. Fans can visit TSN.ca for a daily lineup of matches that will be featured in TSN’s live multi-court coverage. Masters is in London to deliver reports from the tournament for SPORTSCENTRE, and contribute blog posts and web-exclusive one-on-one interviews for TSN.ca. Fans can stay up-to-date on all the action from the All England Club with WIMBLEDON PRIMETIME. Airing every evening of the tournament, this primetime show features encore broadcasts and recaps of key matches. As well, TSN’s Cabral “Cabbie” Richards catches up with Canadian star Milos Raonic for a one-on-one interview airing in SPORTSCENTRE in advance of WIMBLEDON. Leading up to the semifinals and finals, TSN delivers the timeless tennis tradition that is BREAKFAST AT WIMBLEDON, an early-morning preview special breaking down the marquee matchups at the culmination of the tournament. TSN’s exclusive live coverage spotlights Canadian stars Genie Bouchard and Milos Raonic. Bouchard became the first Canadian singles player to compete in a WIMBLEDON Grand Slam final at last year’s tournament. Raonic’s run to the WIMBLEDON semifinals last year was his career-best result at a Grand Slam tournament. The women’s side of the tournament features five-time WIMBLEDON champion Serena Williams, who would hold all four major championship titles with a win on the legendary lawns. The women’s field also includes five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova, and reigning champion Petra Kvitová, who is competing for her third major championship. Roger Federer is competing in his 63rd consecutive Grand Slam tournament, an all-time record for both men and women. The men’s field also includes defending champion Novak Djokovic and the remaining members of the big four, former WIMBLEDON champions Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray. Last year’s edition of WIMBLEDON was a record-breaker for TSN, as the tournament finished as the most-watched WIMBLEDON on record – highlighted by the most-watched men’s and women’s finals ever.* Overall, more than 10 million Canadians watched some part of WIMBLEDON 2014 on TSN and RDS.
