Kyrgios is competing in the final of a grand slam for the first time in his career, having received a walkover after Rafael Nadal, his would-be opponent in the semi-final, suffered an abdominal muscle tear. 

On the other side of the net lurks reigning champion Djokovic, who's won Wimbledon six times and has a little bit of catching up to do in the GOAT race, having fallen two titles behind the stricken Spaniard this year.

Elena Rybakina's captivating victory over Ons Jabeur in the women's final will be a tough act to follow, but with Kyrgios in action, you know it's going to live up to the hype. It's set to be a wonderful afternoon of tennis, and you can take a look below for all the info you'll need on how you can watch a 2022 Wimbledon live stream from wherever you are.

(opens in new tab)

Tennis fans can watch Wimbledon 2022 for FREE (opens in new tab), with the entire tournament being shown on BBC One, BBC Two, BBC iPlayer and through the BBC Red Button.

BBC iPlayer is free to watch with a valid TV licence, and works across a huge array of devices, including laptops, tablets, smartphones, media streaming devices like Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Chromecast and Roku, and PlayStation and Xbox consoles.

Away from the UK right now? No worries:

Use ExpressVPN to watch BBC iPlayer from abroad (opens in new tab).

If you already have a subscription to Discovery+ or Eurosport, both services will be showing the men's and women's singles finals.

Watch a Wimbledon live stream from outside your country

For broadcast and streaming details in more tennis-mad countries like Australia, the US, Canada and New Zealand, just scroll down the page - everything you need to know is there, including details of who's showing the tennis.

But if you try to watch your domestic coverage from anywhere outside your home country, you'll soon find a problem - geo-blocking. That's where the broadcaster prevents you from watching your usual feed from abroad. It's a common problem for sports fans all over the world. 

By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it's back at home.

US coverage of Wimbledon 2022 is a bit of a minefield, but the important thing to note is that the vast majority of the action is being shown by ESPN, across both its streaming service ESPN Plus (opens in new tab), and its suite of TV channels.
