ESPN has struck a 12-year agreement that will have them broadcasting every aspect of Wimbledon starting next year. This will include men's and women's singles finals, across a variety live mediums.

"We are proud to have been a partner of The All England Club the past nine years and are thrilled to be given continuing responsibility for honoring Wimbledon's rich tradition," George Bodenheimer, president, ESPN and ABC Sports, said. "Over the next 12 years, we'll work closely together to move coverage of this great event forward with live coverage on television and using all the latest technologies and screens."
ESPN takes Wimbledon from NBC who had it for 43 years. But, apparently the network was criticized for tape-delaying some coverage of the quarterfinals and semifinals.
