The final places in the Wimbledon quarter-finals will be decided on Monday with seven-time champion Novak Djokovic among those in action.

The Serbian plays 15th seed Holger Rune and says he is expecting an entertaining battle.

“I’m sure that on Monday we’ll see a lot of fireworks on the court,” Djokovic said. “(Rune) is a spectacular player, no doubt. He loves the big stage, loves playing on grass. I think he’s very, very tricky opponent.”

Elsewhere 2022 champion Elena Rybakina is bidding to reach the quarters for the third time in a row but an in-form Anna Kalinskaya stands in her way.

Where is Wimbledon held?

The tournament takes place, as ever, at the All England Lawn Tennis Club on Church Road, Wimbledon. The competition has been held on this site since 1922, when the championships were moved from their previous location on Worple Road.

How to buy Wimbledon tickets

The public Wimbledon ballot is closed, meaning that most tickets for the show courts are unavailable. However, one of the traditions of Wimbledon is ‘The Queue’. Every day fans can queue for a ticket to one of the show courts or for a grounds pass, depending on what is available by the time they reach the front of the queue.

Each day 500 tickets for Centre Court (excluding last four days), No 1 court, and No 2 court are sold. A grounds pass entitles fans to access to all courts apart from the show courts.

Resale tickets for Centre Court, No 1 Court and No 2 Court are available from 3pm each day, from the Ticket Resale kiosk north of Court 18.

How to watch Wimbledon on TV and streaming in the UK

The BBC is broadcasting the event on BBC One, BBC Two and iPlayer. Clare Balding leads the presenting team again after replacing Sue Barker last year and is likely to be joined by former Wimbledon champions, including John McEnroe, Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King and Pat Cash.

Ash Barty, champion in 2021, and 2022 finalist Nick Kyrgios are part of the punditry team although the latter’s hiring has been criticised. Caroline Nokes, the women and equalities committee chair, said the corporation should “hang its head in shame” for agreeing terms after he admitted assaulting an ex-girlfriend in 2023.

By UK law, Wimbledon is a ‘Category B’ television event, meaning that although the men’s and women’s finals must always remain free-to-air there is no guarantee that the rest of the tournament will not one day be shown on pay-TV.

How to watch Wimbledon on TV in the US

ESPN has the rights to show 140-plus hours of coverage from Wimbledon in the US. In 2021, ESPN signed a 12-year agreement to broadcast the event. Coverage begins each day at 6am Eastern Time.

What is the Wimbledon prize money?

In 2024, total prize money is £50 million, up 11.9 per cent from last year. The men’s and women’s singles champions will take home £2.7 million each. First-round losers in the singles will receive £60,000.

In 2023, the total prize pool was £44.7 million with the men’s and women’s singles champions taking home £2.35 million and the runners-up £1.175 million.

Wimbledon court and stadium guide

Wimbledon has five show courts: Centre Court, No 1 Court, No 2 Court, No 3 Court, Court 12 and Court 18. Centre is the largest court at the All England Club and features the famous Royal Box. The court capacity on Centre is 14,974 while Court 1 can hold 12,345.

There are 12 other grass courts in use throughout the tournament. Court 8 was where an 18-year-old John McEnroe made his SW19 bow against Egypt’s Ismail El Shafei in 1977.

In 1995, on court 14, Tim Henman became the first player to be disqualified from Wimbledon when playing in a doubles match with Jeremy Bates against America’s Jeff Tarango and Sweden’s Henrik Holm when he whacked a ball in anger, accidentally hitting 16-year-old ball girl Caroline Hall in the head.
