Williams vs Sasnovich is currently scheduled to start at around 12:40 p.m. ET today (June 29). This first round match is taking place on Center Court.
In the U.S., Wimbledon is split between ESPN and the Tennis Channel, and you can get both via Sling TV Orange with Sports Extra. Sling starts as low as $10 for the first month (opens in new tab) thanks to a current sale. Both networks are included with Fubo (7-day free trial) (opens in new tab).
In the U.K., it's free with BBC iPlayer, but Brits traveling abroad will need a VPN such as Express VPN (opens in new tab) to watch like they're back home.
Today's Serena Williams vs Aliaksandra Sasnovich live stream is going to have all eyes on the former to see if she's starting off Wimbledon at the height of her game. But even if she isn't, this may prove an easy match to call in advance: Williams is the World's 8th-ranked women's tennis player, while Sasnovich is all the way at No. 100.
Today marks the start of Williams' journey for her 24th Grand Slam title. No matter if she takes the overall win or not, though, she will not be able to get revenge on the woman who took her out in 2019. Simona Halep, who won the women's title in the last Wimbledon, tore her left calf muscle in May, and had to pull out of this year's competition.
Williams' quest for another title may be easier than it could have been, as other notable competitors have also dropped out. Naomi Osaka is also not here for Wimbledon 2021, having decided to not compete after dropping out of the French Open.
When it comes to finding Williams' next challenge, we look forward to a potential round 3 matchup between her and Angelique Kerber — who beat Williams in the 2018 Wimbledon final.
