The famous grass courts located in SW19, home of The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, will see hundreds of people come through the turnstiles to be part of the action. However, British tennis fans received disappointedly news today as former number one and two-time champion Andy Murray announced his withdrawal from this year’s event due to his ongoing recovery from hip surgery.

Defending champion Roger Federer will begin his campaign for his ninth Wimbledon men’s singles title when he opens play tomorrow afternoon on Centre Court. Last year’s women’s singles champion Garbiñe Muguruza from Spain is third seed in this year’s tournament and opens play on Centre Court on Tuesday against Brit Naomi Broady.

Seven-time champion Serena Williams will back in action at Wimbledon for the first time since giving birth to her daughter and also plays her first match tomorrow. British hopes lie with current number ones Kyle Edmund and Johanna Konta who kick start their Wimbledon journey on Tuesday will both be looking for their first Grand Slam title. Jamie Murray and his partner Bruno Soares are fifth seeds and ones to watch in the Men’s Doubles.
