Review

Ahead of the first round matches tomorrow, the BBC celebrates 90 years of Wimbledon coverage by sending Sue Barker round the globe to meet some grass-court greats. Andy Murray, Roger Federer, Rod Laver, Chris Evert, Billie Jean King, Pete Sampras, Bjorn Borg, Virginia Wade, Martina Navratilova, Boris Becker and John McEnroe are all on Barker’s list, remembering their time at the All England Lawn Tennis Club and talking candidly about how their careers were shaped by the Championships.

As a top-five pro turned presenter whose understanding of the game is as important in the latter role as her mastery of the autocue, Barker herself attests to how Wimbledon stays in a tennis champ’s bloodstream. She also meets new Wimbledon patron the Duchess of Cambridge.

Summary

The presenter travels the globe meeting Wimbledon greats such as Andy Murray, Roger Federer, Pete Sampras, Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova.
