*There’s a new way to keep up with Venus and Serena’s journey through Wimbledon this month.

Twitter on Wednesday launched its first sports live-stream, allowing users to watch live coverage of the championships at the All England Club.  Users do not need to be logged in to Twitter to watch the stream.

On the streaming page, the video is shown on the left side of the screen, and recent tweets about the event are in a feed on the right. Users can also post their own tweets about the event from this screen, and the #Wimbledon hashtag will automatically be added to their tweets (users can remove it, if they choose).

Wimbledon is just the beginning for Twitter. Earlier this year, Twitter won the right to stream Thursday night NFL games.
