Purple hair, dreadlocks, bad boys: who says Wimbledon has no characters left?

Purple hair, dreadlocks, bad boys: who says Wimbledon has no characters left?

Though the all-white dress code may be restrictive, some competitors – Dustin Brown, Nick Kyrgios and Bethanie Mattek-Sands among them – are doing their level best to stand out It is a perennial refrain: where are the characters in tennis? Who are this generation’s rabble-rousers, our Jimmy Connors, Ilie “Nasty” Nastase, and, the most indulged brat of all, John McEnroe? Where are the psychologically impenetrable enigmas like Bjorn Borg and Ivan Lendl? Why has the sport become so straitlaced and humourless? The debate was reignited on the eve of Wimbledon by McEnroe himself . The three-time champion suggested that the rules needed to be changed to make it more exciting. He’d start by removing line judges and have the players decide when the ball was in or out. An umpire and Hawk-Eye would settle the most contentious disagreements. Then McEnroe would ban on-court microphones so that opponents could yell at each other without fearing a fine. Continue reading...

Gilles Simon thrives on Wimbledon Centre stage to beat Gaël Monfils

• Match played out under roof to the delight of ground pass holders • Simon to face Czech No6 seed Tomas Berdych in next round Fans enjoyed a bonus late on Saturday night as the match between Gilles Simon and Gaël Monfils was moved from Court No1 to Centre Court under the roof in an effort to finish it before the 11pm curfew.

Andy Murray outdoes James Ward in finding a swift resolution

Andy Murray outdoes James Ward in finding a swift resolution

The British No1 responded to the Wimbledon crowd’s late urgency in a way that his friend Ward had not been able to during his defeat by Vasek Pospisil • James Ward v Vasek Pospisil – match report • Andy Murray v Andreas Seppi – match report Back in the bad old days of British tennis, the crowd at Wimbledon had one job: to cheer for their lucky loser with the kind of optimism that defied all known laws of reality. But these days, being a home fan at the championships requires a greater level of nuance. It was hard for the Centre Court crowd to know where they stood at 8pm on Saturday.

Clare Balding and guests endure a wild week on BBC’s Wimbledon 2day | Emma John

New highlights programme evolved before our eyes each night after taking criticism on social media for its new format The Gatsby Club, despite its name, is not a place of hedonistic gin-drinking and riotous skinny-dipping. In fact, the façade dropped the moment Clare Balding told her guests in the first episode: “It’s soft drinks only, I’m afraid.” Poor Clare: even Graham Norton’s guests are allowed to pretend to drink wine.
