Coverage begins daily at 6 a.m. EDT / 11 a.m. BST from Monday, June 27
Why you should tune in: The third Grand Slam event of the 2022 tennis season is here. Novak Djokovic is back and ready to win his fourth consecutive Wimbledon championship. Rafael Nadal, who won the French Open in May, looks to earn victory at the All England Club for the first time since 2010. On the women’s side, Serena Williams will finally make her 2022 debut after recovering from an injury sustained at last year’s tournament.

Father Time comes for everyone, including the world’s top tennis players. Roger Federer won’t play at Wimbledon as he continues recovering from knee surgery. Nadal has missed time in recent months because of a lingering knee injury. Venus Williams hasn’t played in nearly a year, and the 41-year-old could be nearing retirement. However, tennis fans will at least see Serena Williams, who will face Harmony Tan in the first round on Tuesday, June 28.
MLB: Toronto Blue Jays vs. Boston Red Sox
The streaking Boston Red Sox have catapulted themselves back into MLB playoff contention.
Toronto Blue Jays vs. Boston Red Sox – Monday, June 27, 7:07 p.m. EDT / 12:07 a.m. BST
Why you should tune in: On May 17, the Red Sox were 14-22 and seemingly headed toward their first losing record in a full season since 2015. But in large part because of shortstop Xander Bogaerts and third baseman Rafael Devers, the BoSox entered play on June 27 at 42-31 and back in the playoff picture. Kevin Gausman, who allowed only one run in his first 14 innings against Boston this season, is expected to toe the mound for Toronto.

Remember when the Red Sox re-hauled following the 2019 season and dealt star outfielder Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers? One of the prospects acquired in that trade, infielder Jeter Downs, made his BoSox debut in a 6-2 victory over the lowly Detroit Tigers on Wednesday. After years of watching Yankees great Derek Jeter terrorize Red Sox pitching, Boston fans finally, and loudly, chanted “Jeter” at Fenway Park. Although Downs went hitless and returned to the minor leagues, don’t be surprised to see the 23-year-old return to the majors later this year.

Coverage begins 1:15 p.m. EDT / 6:15 p.m. BST on Thursday, June 30
Why you should tune in: Charl Schwartzel became the first champion in LIV Golf history when he defeated Hennie du Plessis by a single stroke at the first event in London earlier this month. This time, Schwartzel will have added competition in his quest for a repeat. Former PGA Tour stars Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau are each expected to make their LIV debuts in Portland.

Koepka became the 10th winner of at least one major to leave the PGA Tour for LIV, joining the likes of DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, and Phil Mickelson. Many of those golfers, however, weren’t exactly fan favorites in the PGA community. Koepka has professed his dislike for golf and his admission that he wishes he pursued a professional baseball career. Patrick Reed has a history of rule disputes, while Ian Poulter had multiple social media incidents earlier in his career. Now, they’re the faces of LIV Golf.
