It's the men's final at Wimbledon 2022 with Djokovic vs Kyrgios sure to capture the fascination of any tennis fan. The sport's bad boy might just have won the support of the Centre Court crowd for today's match and that could leave Djokovic with a tricky task. Will it be enough to upset his game when Kyrgios gets going with his on-court antics? Can the Serb's class and grit see him through to his 21st Grand Slam title? Fans can enjoy every tennis match at Wimbledon free on BBC iPlayer but make sure you know how to watch a Wimbledon live stream from wherever you are in the world.

Wimbledon has been around for 145 years, making it the oldest, and most prestigious, Grand Slam tennis tournament in the world. Change was afoot this year, though – Wimbledon 2022 has taken place over 14 days, rather than the usual 13, thanks to the introduction of play on Middle Sunday.

Last year saw Novak Djokovic add a seventh Wimbledon men's singles title to his trophy cabinet (2011, 2014-15, 2018-19, 2021). The Serbian pro remains odds-on favourite to win Wimbledon 2022 in his final against Australia's Nick Krygios. That said, the bad boy of tennis is arguably at the peak of his career and has an aura about him at the moment. Will he finally be able to break his Grand Slam title duck?

Over in the women's draw, crowds were treated to upset after upset, including the final itself when world no.23 Elena Rybakina won her first ever Grand Slam title. It was at the expense of Ons Jabeur who would have thought that her time had come for a big stage win at Wimbledon when the seeds dropped and the draw opened up. Will it be a tail of the underdog today too?

Viewers can enjoy ace coverage of every match for free on BBC iPlayer. Away from home? Make sure you know to watch Wimbledon 2022 from anywhere in the world.

The BBC has the rights to air Wimbledon 2022 – it's free to UK viewers with a TV licence. Fans can stream every match live on BBC iPlayer for free (opens in new tab). Away from the UK during Wimbledon?

Use a VPN to watch a Wimbledon live stream on BBC iPlayer from anywhere. (opens in new tab)

We recommend ExpressVPN. Full details below.

Those in Australia are also in luck. Aussie nationals can watch a 2022 Wimbledon free live stream on Channel 9 and the 9Now streaming service (opens in new tab). As with iPlayer above, remember that you'll need to use a VPN if you're trying to tune into your home coverage while abroad.

Watch a Wimbledon live stream from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Wimbledon 2022 rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is the one we recommend.

2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For Wimbledon, you should choose 'UK' for BBC iPlayer.

3. Then head over to BBC iPlayer (opens in new tab) on your browser or device and enjoy the free Wimbledon 2022 live stream.

If, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). You could also try NordVPN (opens in new tab), which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark (opens in new tab) which offers 24 hour assistance.

2022 Wimbledon tickets

There was no public ballot for 2022 Wimbledon tickets as would be usual. Instead, those who won the right to buy tickets to the 2020 event were given first refusal. All returned tickets for this year's event can be found on the Wimbledon ticket website (opens in new tab).

Do be warned, though, that at the time of writing, there are no tickets currently available online. Your best bet at this stage is to head down to the famous queue at the All England Lawn Tennis Club where limited show courts tickets and grounds tickets become available for each day's play.

There's strictly one ticket per person available and do bear in mind that for some days the queue might even start the night before. You're welcome to bring tents, chairs and whatever entertainment you might need while you wait but the likes of gazebos and BBQs are out. If this all sounds a bit bonkers, then do bear in mind that the queuing is rather part of the experience too – crazy but quite fair. Good luck.
