Still, we’re not going to object to Caroline Wozniacki coming to represent Denmark.

The grass court Grand Slam has not yet begun, but already a record has been broken at Wimbledon: there will not be a single English player in the men’s first round for the first time in the tournament’s 133 year history.
There will of course be Scottish representation though. British number one Andy Murray is seeded according to his number four ranking, while Jamie Baker was awarded a wildcard thanks to recent improved form – which includes a final appearance in Glasgow earlier this year.
The decision not to award wildcard entries to players such as serial failure Alex Bogdanovic though is understandable. Bogdanovic had been eliminated in the first round on all eight of his previous attempts, and finally the Lawn Tennis Association lost patience. Serbian-born Bogdanovic remains the British number two at world number 161, but lost in qualification – as did Daniel Evans and Josh Goodall.
Even so, perhaps James Ward merited a wildcard after reaching the quarter final in Eastbourne earlier this week.
It looks like British hopes at Wimbledon rest on Andy Murray again, and Wimbledon tickets are available for all days of the tournament for Court One and Centre Court.
The world’s oldest tennis competition begins next week, and with the weather continuing to improve, some Pimm’s and some strawberries and cream would go down a treat at SW19.
