The first women's semi-final at Wimbledon 2024 will see two players make their last-four debut at the All England Club when Donna Vekić and Jasmine Paolini face off on Centre Court.

Before this year's tournament, Vekić had never made it past the second round in 11 attempts at SW19, but the unseeded Croatian secured her place in today's match through sheer determination, best exemplified by her grueling three-set victory over qualifier Lulu Sun in the quarterfinals.

Paolini, meanwhile, is aiming for her second consecutive Grand Slam final and is confident of going one step further than her runner-up finish at Roland-Garros after finally breaking her curse in the quarterfinals against American Emma Navarro, beating her in straight sets.

Below you will find the best Live TV streaming services with which you can watch Wimbledon live wherever you are in the world.

How to watch Wimbledon 2024 online from anywhere with a VPN

If you can't watch Wimbledon in person, you may need another way to watch the world's best tennis players on grass – this is where a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to stop your ISP from throttling your speeds on match day by encrypting your traffic. Plus, it's a great idea if you're on the go and connected to a WiFi network and want to add an extra layer of privacy to your devices and logins.

A VPN allows you to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to gain access to the game. Most VPNs, like our Editors' Choice, ExpressVPNmake it really easy to do this.

Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in all countries where VPNs are legal, including the US, UK and Australia, as long as you have a valid subscription to the service you're streaming. You should make sure your VPN is set up correctly to avoid leaks: even when VPNs are legal, the streaming service may block the account of anyone it believes is bypassing correctly applied blocking restrictions.

Quick tips for streaming Wimbledon 2024 with a VPN

  • With four variables at play – your ISP, browser, video streaming provider and VPN – your experience and success when live streaming tennis action may vary.
  • If your desired location does not appear as a default option for ExpressVPN, try using the “Search by city or country” option.
  • If you're having trouble getting the game after turning on your VPN and setting it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try to quickly resolve the issue. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure the address registered to the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address on file with your account. Second, some smart TVs – like Roku – don't have VPN apps you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you'll need to install the VPN on your router or whatever mobile hotspot you're using (such as your phone) so that every device on its Wi-Fi network now shows up in the correct viewing location.
  • All of the VPN providers we recommend offer helpful instructions on their main page to quickly install the VPN on your router. In some cases, with smart TV services, after installing a cable network's sports app, you'll be asked to confirm a numeric code or click a link sent to your email address on file for your smart TV. Again, having a VPN on your router is helpful here, as it will show both devices in the correct location.
  • And remember that browsers can often reveal a location even when using a VPN, so make sure you use a browser that puts privacy first to log into your services. We usually recommend Brave.
