Game's on for the Novak Djokovic vs Stan Wawrinka live stream which is delivering a phenomenal third round clash at Wimbledon 2023 right now. This match has all the hallmarks of a late-evening classic under the roof, as 26 grand slam titles take to the manicured lawns of the All England Club. Currently, Djokovic is up 5-3.
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 Wawrinka vs Djokovic live streams from anywhere with a VPN.
Stan Wawrinka may be 38 and coming towards the end of his illustrious tennis career, but the Swiss still has more than the odd trick up his sleeve. The three-time major winner beat 29th seed Tomas Martin Etcheverry 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 on Thursday afternoon to set up a first Wimbledon meeting with familiar foe Novak Djokovic. If Wawrinka can pull off the upset, he'll emulate compatriot Roger Federer as the only player to have beaten Djokovic at every grand slam event and he even has form in the biggest of matches. In the 2015 French Open final, Stan was the only man to beat the Serbian at a major in a year of stunning success for Nole. Wawrinka's 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 victory was a performance for the ages. Older and a little wiser now, Wawrinka is 88th in the world but his shot making from the back of the court makes him a dangerous opponent, even for the record-breaking world number two.
Djokovic's progress towards what would be a record-equalling 24th major continues apace. In search of Margaret Court's record, the 36-year-old beat Jordan Thompson in straight sets in his second round match with a display of typical relentless no-miss tennis. It's more than a decade since Djokovic lost on Centre Court and as he also goes for a calendar slam – he'd be the first male player in the Open era to do so – the Serbian could hardly hope for a better venue to continue his quest for greatness. Nole has beaten Wawrinka 20 times out of 26 in the players' past meetings but will be taking nothing for granted in this one.

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