Preview – Wimbledon 2018

Sue Barker

Isn’t it typical? You wait for ages for a major sporting tournament to come along, and then two come along at once.

You have to feel sorry for Wimbledon, living in the shadow of the World Cup (unless England get knocked out very quickly). Of course, it is not just the football that is the problem, as Andy Murray’s absence this year means that British chances of victory are much more remote. Kyle Edmund is the main hope for the men and Johanna Konta for the women, but deep down you know that the trophies are going abroad.

Wimbledon begins on BBC Two at 11.00.
