So who’s going to be marching on to the Philippe Chatrier Court at Roland-Garros for today’s 2019 French Open women’s final then? Serena Williams? No. Simona Halep? No. Kerber, Muguruza or Wozniacki? No no no. Step forward Ashleigh Barty and Markéta Vondroušová – and you can see who wins with a French Open live stream today.
French Open 2019 – where and when
The French Open takes place at Roland-Garros in, you guessed it, Paris, France. It’s running from Sunday, May 26 until the Men’s Final on Sunday, June 9.
It’s Women’s final day today (Saturday, June 8) and the duo are set to start at 3pm local time. So that’s 2pm BST, 6am PT, 9am ET and 11pm AEST if you’re cheering on your girl from Down Under.
As we say, the favorites and biggest names in the game all fell by the wayside over the last fortnight. That gives Australia’s Ashleigh Barty a massive chance to win her first Grand Slam title. The bookies are making her overwhelming favorite to take the trophy back home Down Under – it would be the first time that’s happened in a Slam since Evonne Goolagong won Wimbledon way back in 1980.
Let’s be honest, we think that we can all admit that we don’t know much about 19-year-old Markéta Vondroušová. The world number 38 has only one previous WTA title to her name, but has tumbled the seeds on her way to this final. Could the outsider upset the odds today?
We’re in for another splendid day of tennis action and here’s how you can live stream all the French Open 2019 tennis excitement provided by Barty vs Vondroušová from wherever you are in the world.
Live stream the French Open tennis 2019 from outside your country
For your watching options in the US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, we have more details below – just scroll down the page.
But if you try to watch your domestic coverage from somewhere outside your home country, you’ll soon find a problem…geo-blocking. That’s where the broadcaster prevents you from watching the feed overseas.
The best way to clear this net is to download and install a VPN (click the link if you’re a bit unsure of what that is). We’ve tested all of the major VPN services and we rate ExpressVPN as the absolute best. It’s compatible with loads of devices (e.g. Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox and PS4) and streaming services, ranks amongst the fastest and most secure, and even has an available 30-day money back guarantee so that you can effectively try before you buy.
So that’s game, set and match for Express – but there are other fantastic VPN options out there as well:
The best 3 VPNs for streaming sport online
1. ExpressVPN: the best all-round VPN for streaming, comes with 30-day free trial and three months free with a one-year sub
2. NordVPN: SmartPlay tech makes NordVPN a great choice for streaming
3. IPVanish supports up to 10 devices, so great on the go
And don’t forget that a VPN isn’t just for watching tennis. From unblocking restricted sites and watching Netflix in other territories, to adding an extra layer of security for online shopping and banking, it’s not hard to see why their popularity is increasing.
