Basically, the EU has a rule whereby countries can choose their five (I think) most important sporting events, which have to be available on 'free-to-air' TV channels. So the BBC has the rights to cover Wimbledon, so Eurosport doesn't. And thank heavens for that, terrestrial coverage of tennis is bad enough in this country, we wouldn't want to see Wimbledon disappear onto cable/satellite.
