The Championships at Wimbledon have been tense to watch this year.

From Roger Federer’s ‘thrasing’ in the quarter-finals, to watching Emma Raducanu’s remarkable first run come to an end – it’s been an eventful tournament so far.

But the final games are still to come – just as England’s football team take to Wembley for the UEFA Euro 2020 finals.

So, who’s playing in Wimbledon’s finals this year, when can you watch and where?

Here’s the latest.

When is the Wimbledon final happening?

Who is playing in the Wimbledon final in 2021?

Right now, the Wimbledon semi-finals are underway, so the finalists are to be confirmed.

Previous Wimbledon champ Novack Djokovic (Serbia) is looking likely for the Men’s Singles Final.

He is up against Denis Shapovalov (Canada) in the semi-final on Friday July 9, and we are still to see Matteo Berrettini (Italy) vs Hubert Hurkacz (Poland), too.

For the Ladies Singles Final, we’ll see world number one Ashleigh Barty (Australia) play her first Wimbledon final against Karolina Pliskova (Czech Republic).

Fan favourites such as Serena Williams, Andy Murray, Roger Federer, and the UK’s shining young tennis star Emma Raducanu haven’t made it to the finals this year, sadly.
