The 2016 Wimbledon Championships will begin on Monday in London. The Newsroom takes a look at the line-up.
Male world number one Novak Djokovic is the clear favourite to win the third leg of a calendar grand slam, having already won the Australian and French Open this year. He will be hunting his fourth Wimbledon crown.
Threatening Djokovic are Roger Federer and British former Wimbledon champion Andy Murray. Federer aim to win a record-breaking eighth Wimbledon crown and his 18th grand slam singles title, while Murray is coming off a victory at the Queens tournament last week, where he defeated Milos Raonic.
Female world number one Serena Williams is going for her seventh Wimbledon title as defending champion. French Open singles winner Garbine Muguruza and Australian Open winner Angelique Kerber are the top contenders to defeat Williams.
Big names Rafael Nadal and Victoria Azarenka have been forced to withdraw from the tournament because of injuries sustained at the French Open.
Samantha Stosur – She has been given the 15th seed but she is 100-1 to take out the tournament.
Nick Kyrgios – He has been elevated to the 15th seed and is a big chance to win as he doesn’t have to play Federer or Djokovic until round four. “Obviously Wimbledon for me is the greatest chance on stats and previous results that I can go deep at a grand slam and push to almost win it,” Kyrgios told the media at The Boodles exhibition event.
Bernard Tomic – The 23-year-old is coming off a Queens semi-final loss against Raonic. Tomic was handed the 19th seed and will have to face the top competition in the third round if he makes it that far. – Jesse Mullens
