World No.1 Ashleigh Barty put in a terrific performance yesterday to win her first-ever Wimbledon title with a deserved victory over Czech player Karolina Pliskova, winning the match 6-3, 6-7, 6-3.


And today attention turns to another World No.1, with reigning Men's Champion Novak Djokovic looking to make history with yet another Grand Slam – knowing that a win would tie him level with icons Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal on 20 majors apiece.

It won't be an easy task for the Serb though and standing in his way is Italian Matteo Berrettini, who is appearing in a Grand Slam final for the first time.

The No.7 seed has shown good form on his way to the final – including wins over Hubert Hurkacz and Felix Auger Aliassime – and recently won the title at Queen's Club, so he can clearly pose a threat to Djokovic on a grass court.

Aside from the Singles, there's also the Mixed Doubles final today, with plenty of British interest to look forward to in the tie, which follows the match between Djokovic and Berrettini on Centre Court.

The All England Club boasts lush outdoor lawn courts, making it the only Grand Slam tennis tournament to be held on grass.

The main matches are held in the 14,979 capacity Centre Court, which had a retractable roof added in 2009.

The nearby Aorangi Park has become colloquially known as Henman Hill and Murray Mound after the famous British players, and fans traditionally watch the matches there while eating strawberries and cream.

Are fans allowed at Wimbledon 2021?

Yes – Wimbledon has been permitted to allow 50 per cent ground capacity over the competition, welcoming 21,000 spectators each day across the various courts.

However, the government has also designated Wimbledon as a test event, meaning that 100 per cent capacity will be allowed for the final on Centre Court on 11th July.

It will be the first outdoor sports event played to a full capacity crowd in the UK since the start of the pandemic if all goes to plan, potentially welcoming up to 15,000 fans.

To be one of the lucky spectators you will still need Wimbledon 2021 tickets, which have abandoned the ballot system for the first time in favour of a first-come-first-served approach.

Tickets were first made available through an online sale that started on Thursday 16th June 2021, with more tickets being released in phases.
