Centre court is buzzing – it must be Wimbledon 2019 semi-final time! We're down to the final four at Wimbledon 2019 as all attention turns to the show courts at SW19. Tennis's biggest names are still going for glory – Federer, Nadal, Djokovic – as they compete to make it to the weekend's final. Get out the strawberries and cream and watch all the action with a Wimbledon live stream…no matter where in the world you are.
Last year saw Novak Djokovic win the gentlemen's singles title and, unsurprisingly, he remains favourite to take this year's crown. He faces the unfancied Roberto Bautista Agut in the semi-final, while legends Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer fight it out on the other.
The women's final will be final will be fought out between Serena Williams and Simona Halep – Johanna Konta's loss brought an end to British hopes in the singles in 2019. It should be a cracker, taking place on Saturday.
This is the 133rd Wimbledon Championships and there have been plenty of talking points already at the All England Lawn Tennis Club. Despite homegrown hero Andy Murray not being fit enough to play in the singles this year, he has played some very enjoyable doubles in a formidable team with the awesome Serena Williams.

Use a VPN to live stream all the tennis at Wimbledon from outside your country
One of the most prestigious events on the sporting calendar, Wimbledon 2019 is of course being broadcast worldwide with some countries (Australia, New Zealand and, naturally, the UK) getting free Wimbledon live streams. Not so much luck if you're across the Atlantic – sorry US tennis fans.
But if you don't have easy access to watch Wimbledon when away from your country and want to catch all of that geo-blocked domestic coverage, then you can still watch it by downloading and installing a VPN. That way you can login to a server back in your country and then watch as if you were sat in the British Isles.

The trouble is, assuming Wimbledon 2019 is the same as last year, it doesn't have the rights to show the big action from the show courts – that becomes a particular problem if you're only interested in the top seeds and as the fortnight reaches its climax. We reckon you should stick to the breadth of coverage offered by the BBC if you can.

Serbia’s Novak Djokovic is the current Gentlemen’s champ, having beaten South Africa’s Kevin Anderson in last year’s final in straight sets.
The 2018 Ladies' champion was Germany’s Angelique Kerber, who suffered a shock defeat in the second round of this year’s tournament at the hands of the USA’s Lauren Davies.
Who are the favourites for Wimbledon 2019?
Defending Men’s champion Novak Djokovic is the current clear favourite with Betfair with veteran stars Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer nestling in behind.
Meanwhile, seven-time winner Serena Williams is their favourite to be crowned Women’s Champion.
How can I buy Wimbledon tickets? Are they available from Ticketmaster?
If you’re prepared for a very early morning queue – and potentially camping out the night before – there are a limited amount of tickets available for the show courts on a first come, first served basis each day, except for the last four days of the tournament on Centre Court. If you’re happy to settle for just a ground pass and soak up the atmosphere on the lower courts, you’ll need to turn up a few hours before the gates open at 10.30am.
If all that feels like too much hard work, tickets are often available via Ticketmaster with returns and unwanted tickets released on the site on a regular basis during the tournament.
