Whether you’ve already assumed your position on Henman Hill, Murray Mound, or you’re stuck at work away from the action, there’s no reason to miss out on this year’s Wimbledon. Keep up with the latest news, scores, stats and video with The Championships, Wimbledon app for Android and iOS.
Tournament add-ons like this can sometimes feel like a token gesture, but the coverage in this year’s official Wimbledon app is second to none. If you’re a casual viewer looking to keep track of centre court, or you’re hoping for a more detailed breakdown of what’s happening across the tournament – like any good doubles partner, The Championships, Wimbledon has got you covered.
It really does go as deep as you want it to, with individual pages set up for each player and live match info including anything from the number of unforced errors, to the players’ average serving speed. There are also separate pages set up for news and the live blog – so you can either see what’s happening at a glance, or read more detailed articles with journalist comment and quotes from the players.
Best of all, though, is the live stream beamed directly from the tournament. This means that if you’re away from your TV for whatever reason, you can just fire up ‘Live @ Wimbledon’ for high quality video and radio coverage of the tournament as it unfolds. Just like the BBC’s coverage, Live @ Wimbledon features expert in-studio analysis as well as all of the action on court – so only a downpour of rain can get between you and the tennis.
THE BOTTOM LINE
The Championship, Wimbledon app is a bit like having a miniature Sue Barker in your pocket, guiding you through the tournament with a professional ease and authority. If that’s not too haunting an image for you, it comes highly recommended for any tennis fan looking to get beyond the basics over the coming weeks.
