The Alcaraz vs Djokovic live stream is happening now. So it’s time to see who takes the 2023 Wimbledon men’s final. 

The top two seeds meet in a mouth-watering encounter as Spanish sensation Carlos Alcaraz looks to deny Novak Djokovic winning a record-equalling eighth title at SW19 and 24th Grand Slam single’s title. 

The Serbian has not lost on Centre Court since 2013 and has not been beaten in a completed match at Wimbledon since 2016, but faces a massive test in Sunday’s final. Alcaraz has been able to adapt his game to suit the grass courts at the All England Club and possesses the power, consistency and deft touch at the net to cause even an all-time great serious problems. The Alcaraz vs Djokovic live stream started at approximately 9 a.m. ET / 2 p.m. BST.

Wimbledon is airing for FREE in some countries. But don't worry if you're on holiday while it's on because you can watch Alcaraz vs Djokovic live streams from anywhere with a VPN.

Djokovic will be appearing in a record 35th Grand Slam final and has enjoyed a relatively serene path to the second Sunday at Wimbledon. The 36-year-old has lost just two sets along the way and breezed past big-hitting Italian Jannik Sinner 6-3 6-4 7-6 (7-4) in the semi-finals. Mentally strong, physically fit, and still absolutely unrelenting, the Serbian is determined to eclipse all records and seems to be enjoying the challenge presented by the game’s rising stars. 

For Alcaraz, it’s his first Wimbledon final and the opportunity to cement his status as the best player in the world. The 20-year-old is the world number one and already has one major title to his name, having won last year’s US Open, but there were doubts before the tournament began as to whether he could excel on grass. Those have been brushed aside in emphatic fashion, especially during his clinical 6-3 6-3 6-3 victory against Russian third seed Daniil Medvedev on Friday. 

Playing in only his fourth professional tournament on grass, Alcaraz is now confident with his footwork and has improved drastically at the net. Combine this with his booming groundstrokes and powerful serve, and he’s looked unstoppable. However, having thrived in the same era as Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, there will be little for Djokovic to fear – and you can guarantee he will look to impose his game on the young challenger.
