Who are the top players? 

Roger Federer is the top seed for the men’s tournament, with Rafael Nadal in number two and Marin Cilic in third. Andy Murray is not seeded after his injury saw his world ranking drop to 156, and he later dropped out of the tournament before he started.

In the women’s singles, the top ten seeds have all been knocked out before the quarter-finals. Serena Williams however remains in contention. Wimbledon has seeded Williams at 25th as the seven-time champion is currently ranked 183rd after an absence from the tour to give birth to her first child.

Is Andy Murray playing?

No. It hasn’t been an easy journey to Wimbledon for Andy Murray. He has been off the court for nearly a year, eventually undergoing hip surgery in January. He returned to compete at Queen’s Club in June, bowing out to Nick Kyrgios, and was beaten by Kyle Edmund at Eastbourne. He was due to take part in Wimbledon, but pulled out of a first round match against Frenchman Benoit Paire on the eve of the tournament, instead focusing his comeback on the hardcourt season and US Open.
