Get up to speed on the new and familiar faces hoping to ace it at the All England Club

When it comes to the British sporting summer, one event stands head and shoulders above the competition…

Wimbledon 2018, from Monday 2 July, 11am, BBC Two/HD (CH 102/162)

This year’s Grand Slam in leafy south west London is set to be one of the most intriguing in years, mainly because there’s been something of a shake-up of talent at the top of the sport this season.

 

Andy Murray’s been plagued by injury, which has ultimately ruled him out this year, Serena Williams has given birth to a likely future champion, and Novak Djokovic has slipped down the rankings faster than you can say “new balls, please”.

 

There’s a whole host of unfamiliar stars that you’re likely to see a lot more of over the two weeks of unmissable action in SW19. Sure, you can expect legends like Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal to continue defying Old Father Time, but who else should you be keeping an eye out for when you’re tucking into your strawberries and cream?

 

Here, we take a look at the men and women who we think will raise the roof on Centre Court this summer.
