How to watch Barty and Tomljanović live online (quarter-finals)

Ashleigh Barty vs Ajla Tomljanović is scheduled for Tuesday, July 6 at 4.30 PM BST (5.30 PM CEST). The road to the Wimbledon women’s quarter-finals saw the likes of Serena Williams, Elina Svitolina, Sofia Kenin, and Bianca Andreescu all fail to progress beyond the first two rounds. Needless to say, there’s likely plenty more drama to come! However, if you’re traveling abroad, you may find that you need to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) in order to watch the match live online for free.

As the 2021 Wimbledon Championships continue to progress, there are an increasing number of unlicensed streams of matches. However, we’re only recommending official sources for watching Ashleigh Barty vs Ajla Tomljanović live online. The reason for this is that unauthorized streams offer lower resolution and may be taken offline for copyright infringement. What’s more, some official sources let you watch the women’s quarter-finals live online for free.

Most platforms showing Barty vs Tomljanović are region-locked. To watch the match via your usual home streaming service while traveling abroad, you’ll need to use a VPN.

How to watch Ashleigh Barty vs Ajla Tomljanović live online with a VPN

A VPN is a service that encrypts your internet traffic, securing your data and providing you with online anonymity. You connect to a server in another country, changing your IP address. This lets you bypass geographic restrictions and watch Barty vs Tomljanović live online.

Here’s how to live stream Barty vs Tomljanović using a VPN:

  1. First off, you’ll need to sign up with a VPN provider. We recommend NordVPN although Surfshark and ExpressVPN are strong alternatives for live sports streaming.
  2. Download and install the VPN app that’s compatible with your streaming device. The above VPNs all offer apps for a variety of operating systems.
  3. Next, open the VPN app and connect to a server in the country of the platform on which you plan to watch. For example, a UK server for watching via BBC iPlayer.
  4. Go to the website or app of the streaming platform and sign in. You should now find all content to be unblocked and available to stream without restriction.
  5. Having trouble? Clearing your browser’s cache and cookies may resolve the issue. Another potential fix is connecting to a different server and changing your IP address.
