It's time to watch the Djokovic vs Sinner live stream at Wimbledon!

Novak Djokovic continues his march towards a ninth Wimbledon final but faces a stern challenge in Friday’s last-four clash against rising star Jannik Sinner. The Italian has impressed with his huge serve and powerful groundstrokes and has looked a real threat on the fast grass courts at SW19.

While Sinner has reached a semi-final of a Slam for the first time, it’s just another day at the office for Djokovic who is looking to match Roger Federer’s Open-era record of eight Wimbledon titles. Make sure you don’t miss the Djokovic vs Sinner live stream today. 

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 Djokovic vs Sinner live streams from anywhere with a VPN.

On paper, it seems like there should only be one winner on Friday when Djokovic contests his 46th major semi-final – equalling Roger Federer's all-time men's record. The 36-year-old has recorded 33 consecutive victories at the All England Club and has not lost a completed match at SW19 since 2016. 

The Serbian did drop a set in the quarter-final as he defeated Andrey Rublev 4-6 6-1 6-4 6-3 but has looked virtually unstoppable as he attempts to match Margaret Court's record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles. 

However, 21-year-old Sinner proved that he could be a threat when in last year’s Wimbledon quarter-final he took the first two sets against Djokovic before eventually succumbing to defeat. The Italian has certainly improved in the last 12 months and has now reached his first-ever Grand Slam semi-final courtesy of an impressive 6-4 3-6 6-2 6-2 win over Russia’s Roman Safiullin. 

Sinner has improved physically and mentally over the last year, while the addition to his team of Australian Darren Cahill – who coached Lleyton Hewitt, Simona Halep, and Andre Agassi – has added much-needed steel and knowledge. He’s yet to face a seed at Wimbledon this year but has looked full of confidence and will look to attack behind his ferocious serve. 

Djokovic has won his two previous meetings against Sinner and will look to impose his will early in the match. One of the all-time great returners of serve, he remains the firm favourite and is determined to add another trophy to his collection. "They want to get a scalp, they want to get a win. But it ain't happening,” he said after his win over Rublev.

How to watch the 2023 Djokovic vs Sinner live streams from anywhere with a VPN

For instance, a Brit who's currently in the U.S. could watch Wimbledon – including the Djokovic vs Sinner live stream – on BBC iPlayer, even though they're not in the U.K. 

They're totally legal, inexpensive, and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is ExpressVPN. It's fast, works on loads of devices, and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Aussies can watch the 2023 Wimbledon live streams on Channel Nine, which means the big games such as Djokovic vs Sinner will also air on the on-demand service 9Now.
