Wimbledon 2019 might be coming to a close but this is when the competition is at its fiercest. Four time-champion Novak Djokovic will face off against Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut on July 12 in what’s sure to be a very exciting match. Want to watch this Wimbledon semi-final online? No problem: below, we’ll let you know how to live stream Djokovic vs. Bautista Agut for free, online, wherever you are in the world.
We’ll only be recommending official sources for the Djokovic vs. Bautista Agut match online. Wimbledon is one of the most popular tennis tournaments, meaning unauthorized streams will likely be available. However, with choppy playback, laggy streams, and low-resolution video, third-party streams offer a poor experience. Additionally, they can be taken offline at any time for copyright violation. Several networks allow you to watch Wimbledon online for free anyway, so there’s no need to use shady, unlicensed streams.
To watch Djokovic vs. Bautista Agut free online, you’ll have to be in the US, the UK, or Australia, or using a Virtual Private Network (VPN).
How to watch Djokovic vs. Bautista Agut abroad with a VPN
VPNs allow you to spoof your location, tricking region-locked sites into letting you use them abroad. Just follow the steps below to unblock and stream the Djokovic vs. Bautista Agut match:
- First, sign up to a suitable VPN. We recommend ExpressVPN, but NordVPN and CyberGhost are two excellent, low-cost alternatives.
- Download and install the relevant version of the app for your device.
- Decide which of the official sources below you’d like to unblock.
- Connect to a VPN server in the required country. For instance, you’d use a British server to access BBC iPlayer or an Australian one for 7plus.
- Try watching something on your chosen service. The video should load immediately, but if not, clear your browser’s cache and cookies then reload the page.
Remember: this match will be broadcast live, so it’s important to make sure your VPN works before the match actually begins. If you’re having difficulty unblocking a particular streaming platform, your VPN’s customer support team should be able to help.
How to live stream Djokovic vs. Bautista Agut free on Australian TV
Streaming the Djokovic vs. Bautista Agut match is very simple if you’re in Australia. This match (and all other Wimbledon fixtures) will be shown completely free of charge on 7plus. There’s no need to create an account, either, although as this platform is geo-restricted, you will need an Australian IP address in order to watch any free Wimbledon live streams.
Of course, if you’re in another country, you can easily get an Australian IP address by connecting to a VPN. Don’t have a VPN yet? Why not take advantage of ExpressVPN’s 30-day money-back guarantee? This allows you to watch Wimbledon online risk-free, and if you’re unsatisfied or don’t need a VPN once the tournament is over, you can cancel to claim a full refund.
How to watch Djokovic vs. Bautista Agut for free on UK TV
British tennis fans can easily watch Djokovic vs. Bautista Agut online for free. This (and every other Wimbledon match) will be shown live on BBC iPlayer. As such, all you have to do is create an account by entering your email address and a UK postal code.
British legislation requires you to have a TV license if you use BBC iPlayer or if you’re streaming content at the same time that it’s shown on traditional TV. Despite this, BBC iPlayer doesn’t actually verify if you have a license or not, instead relying on an honor system.
BBC iPlayer has fairly strict geo-blocking measures, but if your VPN can’t unblock it, there is an alternative way to watch. TVPlayer.com has less strict region-locking and offers a free-to-watch BBC1 live stream, although as with BBC iPlayer, you’ll have to create an account to be able to watch anything. To access these platforms abroad, you’ll need a VPN.
Where else can I watch Djokovic vs. Bautista online?
Wimbledon is a wildly popular event, and accordingly, will be broadcast in numerous countries. Take a look below to find out how to stream Djokovic vs. Bautista Agut online where you are:
ESPN will be showing the rest of Wimbledon 2019, including the Djokovic vs. Bautista Agut and Williams vs. Strycova matches. If ESPN is included in your existing cable TV subscription, you can log in to the ESPN website and start streaming immediately at no added cost.
There’s no need to worry if you don’t have cable, though. Several over-the-top streaming services enable you to watch ESPN live online and they all come with free trials. This means you can simply sign up for DirecTV Now, Hulu with Live TV, PlayStation Vue, Sling TV, or YouTube TV, watch Wimbledon 2019 live, then cancel to avoid being charged.
The streaming platforms above are region-locked and only available in the US. Additionally, they all require your payment method to be linked to a US address, making it difficult for foreign users to sign up. Existing subscribers can access these services abroad by connecting to a US-based VPN server.
TSN and RDS will both broadcast the Djokovic vs. Bautista Agut match live (TSN will have English-language commentary, while RDS’s coverage will be in French). If your cable TV package includes one of these channels, you can simply sign into the respective website and watch Wimbledon 2019 for free in Canada.
Don’t have cable? Both of these platforms cost $19.99 CAD per month, and unfortunately, neither offers any free trial period. Given that the Wimbledon tournament is almost over, though, it’s actually less expensive to buy consecutive daily passes for $4.99 CAD each.
RDS and TSN are both geo-restricted, meaning you’ll have to either be in Canada or using a Canadian VPN server in order to use them.
The Djokovic vs. Bautista Agut match will be shown on both Eurosport and RTS in Serbia. However, RTS doesn’t offer a live stream, making Eurosport the only way for people in Djokovic’s home country to watch online. This service costs €4.99 (around 588 RSD) per month and doesn’t include a free trial.
Eurosport is available in numerous countries but will only show the Wimbledon semi-finals in select regions. As such, if you’re outside of Serbia, you’ll likely need a VPN to watch on Eurosport.
Didn’t find your country in the list above? There’s no need to worry: more than 50 countries have an official Wimbledon broadcaster. To find out which networks are showing Wimbledon 2019 where you are, just check out the list of international broadcasters on the Wimbledon website.
Bear in mind, however, that in some countries (including Spain), you’ll only be able to watch if you’re with a specific cable provider. if there’s no other way of watching the Djokovic vs. Bautista Agut match in your country, you can still use streaming services like the BBC iPlayer or 7plus, as long as you connect to a VPN server in the appropriate country first.
Can Roberto Bautista Agut beat Novak Djokovic?
Bautista Agut is the underdog here by a huge margin, but it’d be foolish to write him off entirely. He’s proven himself capable of beating Djokovic before, with three victories in their last ten meetings. Further, one of his biggest strengths is a seemingly limitless reserve of energy, which is a huge advantage when playing an opponent who likes to wear people down, like Djokovic does.
However, this will be the fourth time the pair meet in a Grand Slam tournament, and Djokovic has won all three previous matches. As a four-time Wimbledon champion, Djokovic clearly has the upper hand, if only because he’s used to this level of pressure. Bautista Agut will have to push himself to play more aggressively and take Djokovic out of his comfort zone if he hopes to make it to the finals. One thing’s for certain: whoever wins, it’s sure to be a match fans won’t soon forget.
