Tennis fans will be able to watch live feeds from Wimbledon on mobiles and tablets for the first time this year.

BBC coverage of the 126th championships allows viewers with the gadgets to access live feeds from the courts, as well as highlights clips, features and interviews.

This is the first year the new BBC Sport app for connected TVs gives people interactive coverage during the championships, including live and on-demand content.

The broadcaster is covering the two-week grand slam which starts on Monday and runs until July 8.

For the second year running, as part of a two-year-trial, people will be able to watch selective live coverage of the ladies' and men's singles finals in 3D.

Last year the finals were the first 3D TV broadcast available to the public without a subscription to the BBC HD channel.

The free-to-air 3D broadcast is available to anyone with a 3D TV set and HD channels, regardless of which digital TV provider they use. It is also available on the BBC HD channel.

Coverage, in 3D, of the ladies' final on July 7 starts at 2.30pm and for the men's final at 3.30pm the following day. The men's singles semi-finals will be re-run in 3D.

Sue Barker presents the BBC's daily coverage on BBC One, BBC One HD, BBC Two and the BBC HD Channel, with top tennis names John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Tim Henman, Lindsay Davenport, Pat Cash, Greg Rusedski, Andrew Castle, Tracy Austin and Virginia Wade.

John Inverdale presents Today at Wimbledon on BBC Two and HD from 8pm each weekday.
