Raducanu shows support for England as Wimbledon opener approaches

Emma Raducanu will begin her Wimbledon campaign tomorrow afternoon and is second up on Centre Court where she faces off against Ekaterina Alexandrova. But she made sure to pin her colours to the mast ahead of tonight's match.
England faced Slovakia and came from behind in the dying embers to win 2-1. But Raducanu decided for an England theme at practice today. She wore an England shirt as she smiled for the camera.
Here's hoping that she can also reach two in the form of two sets won tomorrow to move through. All eyes are now on the Brit as she starts her campaign.

Mbappe continues love affair with tennis

Spotted playing tennis in France last month, Kylian Mbappe showed his love of the sport once again on Sunday as he put on social media that he was playing TopSpin.
Who else with his impending move to Real Madrid than Spain's finest player in Carlos Alcaraz who he was playing as. Could he be seen in the stands though in the future.
Matthew McConaughey, Ben Stiller, Steve Carell but will Kylian Mbappe join those ranks in the future? He certainly does so in the gaming life.

Kasatkina and Andreeva share extra long handshake

Daria Kasatkina is on a real high right now. She won through at the Eastbourne International to claim her first title since 2022. She will head into Wimbledon as one of the main favourites outside of the top names.
So will the player that she had a handshake with today in 17-year-old prodigy Mirra Andreeva. Last year, she reached the Last 16 on debut and has since become a major semi-finalist.
Andreeva seems to show up in major tournaments and will aim to do so again. They started off laughing at their extra long handshake and as soon as they found out the camera was on them they just stared and laughed.

Boulter joins Raducanu in celebrating England

Katie Boulter will head into this year's Wimbledon as the top British player. She also comes off the back of winning Nottingham en route to SW19. But she will hope that England also bring it home over the next few weeks.
Boulter started off tweeting saying: "Funny how quick things can change" followed by "Never write them off" with a wink emoji and tagging the England account. She also retweeted the image of Jude Bellingham with his arms aloft.
Boulter begins her campaign on Tuesday when she faces off against Tatjana Maria likely on a big court. But at least she can catch her breath after an exhilarating game.

Gauff shares Day In the Life lauded on social media

Coco Gauff shared her Day in the Life on social media as she took her TikTok followers through her daily routine from getting up, breakfast to going to practice and everything in between.
It was shared also on X by an account called Christian's Court who said that he loves the day in the life and wishes players shared more content like this.
Some players have got into vlogging with Daria Kasatkina a leading example. But doing it through TikTok, it adds a new dimension to players from the new generation who are coming through on social media and showcasing their lives from a different angle.

Fritz and Djokovic share chat between training

Taylor Fritz and Novak Djokovic both have something in common. Both have suffered meniscus tears in the past with Fritz well known for having a conversation with Djokovic amid his drastic recovery.
Fritz and Djokovic were seen chatting in between training with the latter flexing his knee and others looking on. Likely chatting about their shared experiences with meniscus tears.
Fritz made a similarly quick recovery, while Djokovic's has been astonishing. He begins his campaign on Tuesday, likely on Centre Court.
"Taylor Fritz! Three years ago he had pretty much same situation. Actually, I had probably like four, five days more than him. So, he was the first person I reached out to when I found out that he had similar injury and circumstance," said Djokovic at Hurlingham.
"He was very kind to share his journey and really helped out with some of the experiences and advices, you know, how to approach it because it鈥檚 the first time I had this kind of a knee injury."

Andreescu shares her own Day in the Life

While not as good as the video by Coco Gauff with her TikTok, Bianca Andreescu shared a photo dump on her social media or as she called it a Wimby thread as she heads towards her opener against Jaqueline Cristian.
Andreescu reached the final of Rosmalen losing out on her birthday so has shown good grass court prowess so far since her return at Roland Garros where she also impressed.
The photos also featured her in a Rafael Nadal shirt. While he is not at SW19, the spirit of the great Spaniard lives on.

Navratilova returns home to an 'old friend'

Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert had a joint press conference with the duo having a documentary being made right now. But she has returned to the championship ahead of punditry and commentary duty ahead of the next fortnight.
The tennis legend was also seen presenting the trophy at Eastbourne and shared a selfie on her social media saying: "My old friend is still looking good." She has won 307 matches on grass. She secured 32 of her record 167 singles titles at grass-court events and nine of her majors came at Wimbledon.
Welcome home Martina. Bring on the next two weeks.
