The 2014 Wimbledon ladies finals features a clash between Canadian rising star Eugenie Bouchard versus former (2011) champion Petra Kvitova, and ESPN has all the basis covered as far as TV schedule coverage and online live streams in English and Spanish (en vivo) are concerned. According to a Wimbledon (July 5) news article, Centre Court at The All-England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club will be the site for this year’s ladies grand (singles) finale.
First serve is scheduled for just after 9 a.m. Eastern Time (8 a.m. Central Time/7 a.m. Mountain Time/6 a.m. Pacific Time) and as mentioned above, viewing options for this match are courtesy of ESPN’s family of networks. For starters, all the action can be seen live on ESPN TV (DirecTV-206) following Breakfast at Wimbledon for TV viewers.
Those watching online will have the option of streaming ESPN’s live feeds in English or Spanish. ESPN3 will be streaming the 2014 Wimbledon ladies finals in two ways, both in English: (13) E.

As detailed in a NY Times report on July 4, Eugenie Bouchard will have momentum on her side, but Petra Kvitova will have statistics that make her the favorite in this matchup. This will be the second time that these ladies have crossed paths during their professional careers, with the Czech coming away victorious in their first encounter last year in Toronto, Canada.

The OVER/UNDER is set at a combined total of 23 games, and alternate betting spreads go as follows: Eugenie Bouchard +½ (-106) vs Petra Kvitova -½ (-110).
Who will win the 2014 Wimbledon ladies singles championship: Will Kvitova capture her second Grand Slam/Wimbledon crown, or has Bouchard’s talent developed to the point that she’s ready to get over the hump?
