Where to watch Wimbledon 2024: TV and live stream details, session times for tennis grand slam

Tennis’ crown jewel tournament is back and bigger than ever in 2024, as The Championships at Wimbledon begin from the All England Club in London. There’s a £50 million (U.S. $63.4 million) prize pot to be shared come the second weekend in July, as the world’s best players touch down in the UK looking to etch their names into tennis immortality.

There’s no bigger stage, no better competition and no greater glory than Wimbledon, and after Carlos Alcaraz defeated seven-time champion Novak Djokovic to win an epic 2023 decider, tennis fans the world over are expecting another tournament of the highest class.

However, despite Alcaraz’s and Djokovic’s past success, it’s new world No. 1 Jannik Sinner who is top of the seedings coming into this year’s tournament, having just come off the back of a French Open semifinal after victories at the Australian Open and Miami Masters so far this year.

In the Women’s Singles tournament, world No. 1 Iga Swiatek is the top seed having collected her third French Open title in a row at Roland Garros. She’ll be hoping to improve on her best Wimbledon finish — the 2023 quarterfinals — but another major shock could be on the cards after Marketa Vondrousova last year became the first unseeded woman to ever win a Wimbledon final.

We’re all set for two weeks of world-class tennis in the sport’s biggest tournament, and to make sure you catch all the action from the All England Club, The Sporting News has you covered.

Wimbledon 2024 prize money

Already the most well-known, prestigious and lucrative event in tennis, there’s a huge 11.86 percent increase in prize money from Wimbledon 2023 ahead of this year’s even. That total pot now stands at a whopping £50million (U.S. $63.4 million), which like many of the biggest tournaments on both the WTA and ATP, is split equally for male and female competitors.

The winner of either singles final is set to pocket a huge £2.7 million ($3.4 million) of that sum, just less than double the amount awarded to the losing finalist come July 13-14. The Doubles teams are also compensated with £650,000 ($824,000) to split between the winning pair, with entries for that competition beginning at the Round of 64 stage.
