Here’s how to watch the Djokovic vs Nadal French Open final live stream for free, and catch the action from anywhere in the world…
How to watch Djokovic vs Nadal in UK and Ireland
ITV is broadcasting Roland Garros 2020 (aka The French Open) in its entirety on ITV4. Fans are being treated to 15 days of coverage (and approx 10 hours per day).
Provided you have a TV license, it’s completely free to view and can be accessed by any viewer in located in the UK.
Remember you’ll need VPN to access your ITV account if you’re outside of the UK at the time of the French Open.
The event will also be shown live on Eurosport which you can watch in both HD (channel 521 and 522) and in 4K HDR on Virgin Media (channel 205 and 999) using the V6 box. You can also watch a French Open live stream on at eurosport.co.uk.

How to watch Djokovic vs Nadal from abroad
Trying to access ITV4 or the ITV Hub from outside the UK or Ireland – if you’re on holiday or working abroad, for example – will be a major problem. Your internet service provider (Channel 9, Sky, Virgin Media, BT or Eurosport Player on Amazon Prime Video, for example) will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access – even if you’re a UK national and have paid for a TV license. This will be the same if you try to access any geo-blocked stream from around the world.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the match. When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you’re in.
