The network will air up to 10 hours of programming from the All-England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club from the opening matches Monday to the women's and men's finals on July 8 and 9.
"The Wimbledon Championships are truly one of the most celebrated events in sports and we will provide tennis fans with the most comprehensive radio coverage available in the U.S.," Steve Cohen, vice president of sports programming, said in a news release. "With live on-court action and detailed analysis of the day's outcomes and upsets, SIRIUS listeners will be able to experience everything but the smell of Wimbledon's freshly cut grass courts."
