What are the top stories leading up to the big event!
Monday 27th June marks the start of the 125th Championships at Wimbledon! To many of us this means settling down to watch the matches with a glass of Pimms, eating strawberries and cream and generally getting into the spirit of Wimbledon. Ok, in reality we are probably drinking a cuppa and watching it in the ‘background’ whilst playing with the kids, or doing ‘house stuff’? Or maybe that’s just me!
One thing is for sure, leading up to Wimbledon many of us will focus on the fitness and performance levels of Andy Murray, evaluating his chance to take back the Men’s singles title he won 3 years ago. We probably also have a cursory look at some other British hopefuls coming to the fore, and check out the likes of Djokovic, Nadal and Serena Williams, to name a few.
So, what stories have been prominent leading up to this year’s Championships?
