This could turn out to be one of the most open Wimbledon’s for many years. Serena is away getting ready to have a baby. That should put an end to the rumours that she’s a bloke.

Pliskova was the market favourite a week ago and that has been backed up by her winning Eastbourne this week.  She doesn’t have a good record at Wimbledon although she has started to believe that she can win a slam. She reached the US Open final last season.
