Thought we'd have to wait for Kygrios before the tricks came out. Also that Alcaraz must be the fastest man alive, outrageous!

Pensioner line judges have no place in a multi million pound tournament, it’s laughable how blind some of them are and how reluctant Wimbledon are to move with the times.

Will in interesting to see how a 40 year Serena performs today after not playing a singles match (competitively) for a year now.

Half expecting a first round loss, but then even if the physicality isn't there, you don't lose your tennis IQ, muscle memory, and general skill especially against a 90-100 ranked player.

Don't know if this is exactly appropriate for this thread but I do miss Boris Becker. :(

Always liked his commentary.
I just read the story on him. I remember when he was worth something like £80 million many years ago, so it was shocking to read he went bankrupt and then hid assets to avoid paying debts. He's apparently doing half of his two and a half year prison sentence so should be out around this time next year. He'll never get to be a pundit on BBC anymore as his reputation is tarnished. Real shame as I always liked his commentary too. Apparently Sue Barker and McEnroe have been criticised for sending their best wishes to him on air.
