Yesterday began the 125th anniversary of The Championships, Wimbledon (or just Wimbledon, as it’s know on the streets), the world’s oldest tennis competition. For non fans of tennis, Wimbledon is remarkable as much for being the only Grand Slam tournament still played on grass (the game’s original surface) as it is for its prestige, rigid dress code and devouring of strawberries and cream.
It’s all worth tuning in for. But for American viewers interested in watching noon Gentlemen’s and Ladies’ Singles and Doubles five hours away, this may not be so convenient. Fortunately, Time Warner Cable and ESPN have you covered.
